TOM: Replacing a range hood updates your kitchen and improves indoor air quality. With high-tech advances and a variety of designs, you can accommodate both your cooking routine and the style of your home.
LESLIE: The best choice is a range hood that ducts to the outside, carrying exhaust, moisture, and odors out of your home for a healthier environment inside.
TOM: To find a hood that also works quietly while you’re carrying on a kitchen conversation, look for certified sound ratings known as sone levels. The lower the sone level, the quieter the range hood will be.
LESLIE: Sleek designs with dishwasher-safe filters make maintenance easy. Features like sensor lighting provide safety when you’re prowling for a midnight snack. Those are some tips for buying a range hood. I’m Leslie Segrete.
