Shopping for Range Hoods? You’re in the Right Spot!

Did you just decide on a range, cooktop, or rangetop? Think that’s all you need? You might be missing something large and shiny that goes over your stovetop—that’s right, we’re talking about range hoods. A range hood vents smoke, steam, odors, and vapors away while you’re cooking, which means breathing better, fresher air. There are many different types of range hoods, but thankfully, our family is here to help yours discover the best range hood for your home.

Shop the Best Rated Range Hoods For Sale

When talking about the best range hoods, consider the differences between ducted and duct-free. A ducted hood vents irritants and odors completely to the outside (professional installation recommended). A duct-free hood pulls air through a charcoal filter and recirculates it back into the kitchen (great for condos or apartments). Your next consideration is range hood type:

  • Under cabinet range hoods go above your stove and take up cabinet space (ducted or duct-free options).
  • Wall mount range hoods mount to the wall if there are no overhead cabinets.
  • Island range hoods hang from the ceiling over an island (comes in styles like glass canopies, curved metal, or traditional)
  • Insert range hoods—or power packs—are hidden in the cabinetry above a cooktop or range (sometimes tucked into a wall)
  • Downdraft range hoods are built into the cooktop or behind the cooktop to exhaust irritants horizontally to the outside.

Shop 24 Inch Range Hoods

The best range hood is whatever ventilation is the perfect size for your rangetop or cooktop. How do you know which is the right size? A good rule of thumb is to search for range hoods that are three inches longer than your stovetop on each side. For instance, if you have a compact, 21 in cooktop or stove, you need a 24 inch range hood for optimum airflow. So, even if you have limited kitchen space, you can still enjoy the benefits of extra ventilation with a 24 inch range hood.

Shop 30 Inch Range Hoods

A 30 inch range hood is a popular size for 24 in stoves, but they can also fit 30 in stovetops. On top of having the best range hood size for your cooking surface, it’s important to also install your ventilation at the right height. The installation height depends on whether your cooktop is gas or electric. For gas, your vent hood should be between 24 and 30 inches from your cooking surface; for electric, the height required is between 20 and 24 inches away from the surface. That said, make sure to read the exact requirements in your manual for your 30 inch range hood.

Shop 36 Inch Range Hoods

Wondering if a 36 inch range hood is what you need? These range hoods are one of the most popular sizes, and that’s because 30 in ranges are one of the most popular range sizes. Of course, if you have a wide kitchen space with a grand 42 in range, a 36 inch range hood provides enough ventilation. Plus, there are plenty of ductless options to work with your kitchen layout. However, it’s always best to go at least one size larger than your cooking surface for the best results.
