No matter what wall-mounted model you choose, always make sure you have a wall where the range hood fits.
Before choosing a wall-mounted range hood, it's important to know what kind of exhaust system you have at your home. You can have an exhaust system leading outside or a central exhaust system, for example. If you have neither of these, you need a range hood with recirculation. The range hood will filter the air in your kitchen and blows clean air back into the room.
