You will probably not be surprised that, in 2022 more and more people will be looking for invisible hoods, as the surface hoods or cooktop extractor systems. Call it what you like ;P
After spending more time at home in the last two years, it’s no secret that homeowners are looking to upgrade their kitchens this year. People are realizing how important it is to have a kitchen you love and one that meets your needs. Now, the kitchen isn’t just for cooking; it’s for working from home, gathering, celebrating, sharing, and more.
Besides the ceiling hoods, a cooktop extractor systems exhaust system is one of our favorite solutions when a cooktop is on an island. It isn’t really visible unless it’s in use. It’s built into the cabinetry below the countertop, and either behind or to the side of the cooktop, and it sits flush with the top of the counter when not in use. With the touch of a button, the exhaust fan turns on to extract odors and grease from the cooking area.
Careful planning is required to ensure that such a ventilation system can be incorporated into a new kitchen design, as the extracted air needs to be routed to the outside through the floor. It isn’t always possible to do this in an existing home, so it may be necessary to choose a recirculating model instead.
Our Frecan surface extractor hoods now have the option to be installed with recirculation. The only difference is that in this case, instead of expelling the fumes to the outside, the same filter, returns it already clean to the kitchen
