Dacor Range Hoods, Downdrafts & Ventilation

Dacor Hoods for Superior Kitchen Ventilation

Proper ventilation in your kitchen is important for many reasons: it keeps odors out of your home, keeps grease and grime off kitchen cabinets and helps your family members breathe easy, especially those with conditions like asthma. Dacor offers various ventilation solutions including downdrafts, hoods, or over-the-range microwaves that have a ventilation component on the bottom. Over time, grease and food splatters build up over time, and ruin your cabinets. Frying food or cooking fish can leave behind odors that linger well past dinnertime. Did you burn something in the oven? Your range hood or island hood can take care of that. Overall, particles are contaminating the air in your home. Adding a hood or downdraft helps suck up these contaminants and either push them outside your home or purify them and then recirculate the particles. They're also helpful in eliminating excess heat or moisture that are created while you're cooking so you don't have to sweat over your cooktop on a summer day. These appliances can serve both aesthetic and functional purposes if you desire, and luckily Dacor products combine sleek looks with professional quality. Hoods are the most recognizable of these ventilation products and are available to be installed in a kitchen wall or above your kitchen island. They function similarly but are designed differently to accommodate different kitchen layouts, with island hoods obviously installed in the ceiling above a freestanding kitchen island and wall hoods built into the wall for cooktops that are built into your kitchen counters. If you don't like the way that Dacor hoods look, you can still reap the benefits of powerful ventilation. Downdrafts are another way to clean the air but are much less visible than the Dacor hoods. They clean the air by pulling smoke and grease downwards then typically vent them outside via ducts. With the touch of a button, the ventilation component rises up from your kitchen counters to remove contaminants without obstructing your view.

Reliable Ventilation for Every Kitchen

Another way to keep kitchen air clean is with an over-the-range microwave. These appliances do double duty, reheating leftovers or melting butter while filtering the air above your range while you cook dinner. The ventilation system is built into the bottom of the microwave and can be turned on with the push of a button. Additionally, these microwaves often have lighting in the bottom of the unit that can help illuminate your cooking surface so you can ensure that everything is prepared properly. If you're on a budget, over-the-range microwaves are a more affordable way to ventilate the air in your kitchen. Abt offers a wide range of ventilation solutions so you can find exactly what you need. This same selection means it can be hard to decide which Dacor product to order, though. Luckily, our range hood buying guide explains the benefits of these appliances and the differences between each style of ventilator If you're more of a visual learner, we have an informational vent hood video as well.
