5 Signs Your Kitchen Needs a New Range Hood

Getting a range hood is an excellent investment in your home. It keeps airborne bacteria and various forms of pollutants out of your kitchen. However, there are some signs that you need to replace it. Read below for our five signs that your kitchen needs a new range hood.  

Your Kitchen Is Smokey

A smokey kitchen is one of the first signs that something is amiss. It’s also the first thing you notice if you enjoy frying foods. Essentially, if your kitchen is still smokey even when you put the fan on, this is a sign that it isn’t working properly and will require a replacement.

Your Kitchen Is Hot When Cooking

A vent hood is supposed to funnel air from your kitchen into the air ducts above your stove. When you use your oven or stovetop, the heat should vent out of your home, and the air should be cooler. If it isn’t, it’s time to get a new range hood. It’ll make your life much easier and prevent sweating while you cook.

Your Kitchen’s Air Quality Is Poor

Poor air quality is a serious issue when you’re cooking. Gas ranges, in particular, can produce harmful contaminants such as carbon monoxide and formaldehyde. Both these gases are harmful to inhale in large quantities. However, a range is supposed to solve that problem. When you cook, adequate ventilation is a lifesaver, especially if you have children with asthma or respiratory issues. Luckily, we have ranges and kitchen stoves for sale so you can get exactly what you need.

It Has Dents

Wear and tear is a common problem for most household appliances. Sometimes, even if the range is brand new, it can get damaged in transit. Things happen, and if you do receive a damaged range, you should take advantage of the return policy and get a free replacement. You can also dent your hood during insulation, though this is uncommon. Regardless, there’s nothing worse than an eye sore, so replace it when you can.

You’re Remodeling

If you’re remodeling, your old range might not match your new appliances. In this case, it might be wise to say, “Out with the old and in with the new.” Get a custom range to match your appliances perfectly; you won’t be sorry. This is one of the most obvious signs that your kitchen needs a new range hood. 

In short, it’s always wise to let go of an appliance when the time is right. If you’re looking for a range replacement, we have a wide array of them here at Town Appliance. Shop Town Appliance today!
