A range hood insert is a vent hood exhaust system that can be customized to your space and fit inside your cabinets. This makes the installation seamless with your existing decor and doesn’t add a visible metal hood to your kitchen.
The blower is the “business” part of a range hood insert. It contains a fan that pulls hot air, grease particles and smoke away from your cooktop.
Most - but not all - range hood inserts come with a blower. Blowers for range hood inserts may be one of three kinds: Local (the blower is inside the range hood insert), inline (the blower is part of the ductwork leading away from the range hood insert) or remote (the blower is installed outside your home).
A hood vent insert is just another way of saying “range hood insert”.
A custom range hood insert needs to take into account the size and strength of the range it’s over. It needs to be physically large enough to overshadow most of the cooking surface and move enough air to handle even the hottest burners. The experts at Coast Appliances can help you choose.
