Many range hoods come equipped with a heat sensor. This is a very handy feature, indeed. It allows you to concentrate on cooking, entertaining, and eating instead of trying to figure out how much grease, smoke, steam, or odor that cooking is producing.
The point is that if there is a lot of smoke, grease, steam, and odor being produced, you would have to stop whatever you’re doing and select a higher fan setting. Then, once you’ve finished cooking – and you’ve let the fan keep running for another 15 minutes or so – you would have to remember to go turn the range hood fan off. The heat sensor takes that responsibility off your shoulders.
But now, some range hoods can go one better.
Not only do they control the fan setting automatically as you cook, they even switch on and off automatically.
The heat sensor on these range hoods is programmed to activate, then de-activate, when the air reaches a particular temperature.
The fact that the range hood keeps the indoor air in our homes clean and fresh is great. The fact that it does that without us needing to worry about it at all is simply fabulous.
