Good kitchen ventilation is essential for a healthy, ventilated home. Call MC Electrical to help with your kitchen ventilation installation in Wellington.
The kitchen is often said to be the heart of the home, so it’s important that this heart stays clean and healthy with proper ventilation.
Kitchen ventilation is essential, as it removes stale air, unpleasant odours, excess moisture, and even dangerous air pollutants such as smoke and nitrogen dioxide. Opening a window is a good start, but it’s not always warm or dry enough for that to adequately ventilate the kitchen area.
Additionally, all New Zealand rental homes must have an extractor fan as per the Healthy Homes Standards. There are very few exemptions to this rule, such as if it is not reasonably practicable to install an extractor fan. You can read more about the Ventilation Standards and acquiring an exemption on the Tenancy Services website.
So how can you ensure your kitchen is well ventilated?
How a rangehood can ensure proper kitchen ventilation
A kitchen rangehood sits above a stovetop where it can extract fumes, moist air, and even smoke, removing unwelcome odours and pollutants that are better off away from you and your family.
New models are more efficient at removing unwanted air than ever before. They are also quieter, and easier to clean, with some models offering removable carbon filters that you can wash in the dishwasher. These rangehoods can switch on with the click of a button, or can even come on automatically whenever you are using your cooktop.
There are multiple options for modern rangehoods to suit any kitchen:
- Wall-mounted over the stove
- Island canopy for stovetops situation in the middle of a kitchen
- Undermount rangehoods that are built in to cupboards above the stovetop
- Cassettes that are unobtrusively built in to the ceiling
- Retractable or slide-out rangehoods
