Are Ceiling Hoods Any Good? 

There are plenty of reasons why ceiling hoods are a popular appliance for every modern kitchen. The first one being the fact they can be installed directly into the ceiling above your cooker, saving you plenty of space. 

They come in various sizes and styles, with many models boasting advanced features such as quiet motors, LED lights or Wi-Fi connectivity. All this combined with fantastic suction power that helps you effectively remove smoke and unpleasant cooking odours from your kitchen. 

Are Ceiling Hoods Suitable for Lower Ceilings? 

Ceiling hoods can be installed on ceilings with no limitations regarding height. Modern ceiling heights are usually between 2.4 m to 2.6 m, however, houses built over 50 years ago typically have ceilings 2.2 metres and lower in height. 

With their flush fit, ceiling-mounted hoods are often recommended for kitchens with lower ceilings as they don’t take away any available headroom.  

Ducted or Recirculation – What is the Difference? 

While shopping around for ceiling hoods you might come across the terms “ducted” and “recirculation”. It’s important to know the difference between the two so you can decide which model is more suitable for your needs.  

Recirculation Ceiling HoodsA recirculating ceiling hood takes the odour-filled air and steam from your cooker or hob and runs it through an internal filter, then returns the clean air back into your kitchen.

Ducted Ceiling Hoods A ducted ceiling cooker hood sucks up the steam and extracts it outside through a run of ducting fitted into your ceiling above the hood.

Some of the best ceiling cooking hood models come with the option to be installed as ducted or recirculating, giving you the flexibility to decide which is more suitable for your needs. 

You might find that recirculation hoods are not as effective when it comes to removing stale air. They can sometimes be a little more noisy as well. They are, however, easier to install. 

Ducted ceiling hoods are the more efficient option out of the two. The need for ducting, however, can add to the overall cost. Additionally, you will have to plan out how to run the ducting to the outside.
