Venting Systems

All kitchens require venting systems to keep them safe and clean. Without a good ventilation system, smoke, grease, food particles, humidity, and odors accumulate and create an unpleasant and unhealthy workspace.

There are three primary venting types: ventilation hoods, range hoods, and exhaust fans. There are also two different set-ups from which to choose: updraft and downdraft. You have a choice of either ducted or recirculated range hoods as well.

It is also important to install a large enough system for your kitchen’s output. The required size is determined by the model of your appliances.

The newest ventilation system models have been designed to look sleek and modern and vary in style depending on their locations. Island systems have different requirements than wall, ceiling mount, or under cabinet mounts, for example.

The consultants at Urban Signature Appliance will advise you on your home’s needs based upon the models of cooking appliances you have selected.
