What you want to know about your new range hood

Now that you have a new range hood, you're probably full of questions. Because why don't you see a manual or installation material in the package? And how do you get the best extraction results? In this article, I explain what you need to know about your new range hood.

The installation material is in the range hood

Looking for the installation material and the manual? These are often in the range hood itself. You don't have to completely unscrew the cover; removing the grease filters is sufficient. Always consult the installation manual to install the device correctly.

Best extraction result

To ensure that your range hood works properly, it's important to take a few things into account. Do you have a range hood with an outwards ventilation system outside? If so, open a window when you start cooking. This type blows out all the air and therefore needs new air to suck up all the cooking vapors. In addition, it's important to switch on your hood before you start cooking. This ensures a better extraction result.

There is still protective film on the range hood

Have you ordered a stainless steel range hood, but is it white, black, or blue? There is a good chance that there's still protective film on it. Remove this foil before installing the device.

Clean your range hood regularly

It's important to regularly clean your range hood and the accompanying filters. If you don't do this, it will have an effect on the exhaust result. If the filters are dirty, this blocks the air flow. In addition, it creates a fire hazard. Do you have a recirculation range hood? If so, you also have to check your carbon filters regularly. You can replace these on average every 3 and 6 months.
