  The kitchen should be the worst place in the family. The kitchen exhaust fan solves the troubles for housewives who face the dirty air in the kitchen all day and has become a good helper for housewives. The kitchen often breeds some bacteria in the air due to the smell of cooking fume and leftovers, which makes the kitchen air dirty. At this time, the kitchen exhaust fan plays a great role. It can improve the air quality of the kitchen and protect the health of the family. Next, we will prepare the most comprehensive kitchen purchase guide for you, hoping to help you.

Why does the kitchen need to install an exhaust fan?

  When a range hood has been installed in the kitchen, it can be considered not to install a ventilator. However, if the ventilator is installed, there are many benefits. The fried oil fume is large, and the ventilation effect of the ventilator is better. When boiling soup and water, you can not turn on the range hood, just turn on the ventilator to remove water vapor, which is convenient and energy-saving.

Factors to keep in mind when buy the best kitchen exhaust fan

Capacity – As is known, every kitchen requires needs a certain amount of airflow for proper ventilation. The airflow in an exhaust fan for a kitchen is usually measured in CFM or cubic meter per hour. The diameter of the fan blade is normally seen as 100mm, 150mm, 200mm, 250mm, 300mm. While small exhaust fans have a CFM airflow ranging between 30 to 50, larger models provide a CFM airflow anywhere between 200-300. So, based on the size of your kitchen, choose an exhaust fan that will ensure thorough ventilation.

Kitchen size – The size of your kitchen exhaust fan is important because it depends on the location you intend on placing it and the size of your kitchen. A small kitchen fan won’t be very useful in a moderately big kitchen and vice-e-versa, so remember to consider this factor too. 

Noise level –The loudness of a kitchen exhaust fan is measured in sones. A fan that measures 2 sones or less, is considered ideal as it is going to be quiet. Similarly, a fan that measures 4 sones is considered loud. The price of an exhaust fan also depends on the total sones generated by a fan. Thus, the lower the sones, the more will be the price.

Energy EfficiencySome exhaust fans can end up increasing your electricity bill if you’re not careful and so if you’re quite keen on cutting down on your energy costs, you should keep an eye out for an exhaust fan that’s energy saving/efficient.

Vented or Duct-free—The kitchen is hot and humid, heavy oil fume and poor air quality, so it is not suitable for ducted ceiling ventilator, but wall mounted or window ventilator can be selected. Especially , the louver ventilator, not only has the function of exhaust fan, but also can blow fresh air into the room, and has filtering requirements in the fresh air part, with good air circulation
