Ceiling Extractor Hoods
What is a ceiling extractor hood?
A ceiling extractor hood is an overhead cooking extraction system that helps remove smoke, grease and odours during cooking. This type of hood is typically installed directly into the ceiling and is positioned above your hob. Since it sits further away from the wall than a standard range hood, it disperses air more evenly throughout the kitchen. Ideally your ceiling cooker hood is larger in size to allow for superior airflow which helps keep smoke and odours away from walls and other surfaces. With the hood being inside your ceiling only the fascia can be seen, this picks up less dirt and dust and isn’t needed to be cleaned as often as a standard hood hung on the wall.
A ceiling extractor hood should be at least 65 cm from the cooker top or hob so that it can effectively remove steam and smells. This distance also reduces noise levels by ensuring that sound waves released by a shifting fan motor are dispersed before they hit the walls.
Finally, a ceiling extractor hood is effective because it's out of direct line of sight and does not obstruct your view of your kitchen like a traditional range hood does.
Does your cooker hood require some sort of extraction system? If so, there are a few different approaches you can take when it comes to extracting air. Ducted extraction systems are popular choices, as they use ducts to direct the extracted air out of your kitchen space. Recirculating extractors filter the air and return it back into the kitchen while still reducing cooking odours. Charcoal filters also work well in this situation, absorbing smoky smells before they spread through other areas of the house.
