While these by-products may simply sound like nuisances, studies have shown that cooking without proper ventilation is one cause of poor indoor air quality that can negatively affect your health. That's why the International Residential Code and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency strongly advise homeowners to install a vent hood to capture, filter, and then expel the fumes outside through a vent in an exterior wall or on the roof.
Eyesore no more! In recent years, kitchen range hoods have evolved from grimy eyesores to works of art. And why shouldn't an appliance of such large size also make a big (stylish) statement? Today, kitchen vent hoods are available in all shapes, sizes, and materials (hello, copper!) that can either draw the eye or blend right in with the surroundings.
If you’re comfortable with metal working, cover up your old range hood vent using sheets of galvanized metal—the same material used to install flashing along a chimney. Your home center will have sheets or rolls of metal, as well as specialty tin snips for cutting. (If you need help check out these tips for cutting sheet metal.) If you’re looking for something with more of an antique flare, consider buying custom metal finishes to match your style.
