Can’t picture what a centrifugal fan looks like? Just think of a whirligig or spinny wheel that some people place in their gardens and that spins when the wind blows. It’s basically a series of blades enclosed in a container inside a range hood. That’s why it’s called a fan wheel.
When the hood fan is turned on, the wheel spins. The spinning motion creates high pressure that draws air in. Centrifugal fans are typically found in more powerful range hoods because they need more power to operate properly. Centrifugal fans are particularly good at removing smoke, steam, grease, and odors from the kitchen.
