Have you had the experience of cooking a delicious meal, only to have the cooking odors linger long after the food has been enjoyed?
That means you need an upgrade on the exhaust fan. Don’t settle for just so many cubic feet of exhaust, (which is important), but have an exhaust hood installed that makes a statement and adds to the beauty of your kitchen.
A good contractor can tell you how much air the fan needs to be capable of pulling from the kitchen, and can recommend a quiet fan, as well. The rate of air that needs to be exhausted depends on the size of your kitchen (the volume of air it holds), and on your cooking style.
