A range hood doesn’t replace an air purification system. Ok, now that we’ve got that one out of the way, let’s talk about what a range hood can do for you.
Your range hood works with your air purification system to clear out as many irritating particles as possible. Turn the range hood fan on every single time you cook. Turn it on at least 15 minutes before you begin cooking, and leave it running at least 15 minutes after you’re done cooking.
It will help clear the air of grease, smoke, steam, odors, and potentially harmful fumes.
You might be wondering what those typical by-products of the cooking process have to do with allergies. Good question.
Here’s the answer…
Even in our draft-free, highly efficient homes, pollen, dust and all the other particles that offend our senses are always present. A range hood fan can draw those irritants out of the air and exhaust them to the outdoors where they belong.
Just make sure that your range hood isn’t adding to the problem. Give it a good inside-out cleaning using a natural, non-abrasive cleaner about once per week. At least once per month, depending on how often you cook and what you cook, unhook the filter and run it through the regular dishwasher cycle.
Now you can breathe easier!
