Why isn’t your extraction system sucking well? Do you have problems with your hood and do not know why?

In this post we help you understand why your cooker hood is no longer extracting and how to resolve the problem.

Why is the hood not suctioning properly?

In most cases in which a hood does not suction properly or in sufficient measure, the problem is due to the conduit installation. Our website provides information and advice regarding the importance of respecting the recommended diameters of the ducting tubes, and preventing sudden changes in direction of the tubes.

Don’t forget to install a non-return valve at the point where your ducting reaches the exterior. This will prevent wind and cold entering from the outside.

Through the hood, currents of air are filtered from the outside. How can I solve that?

It is necessary to install the non-return valve, since, in this way, we will prevent odors from leaking from the outside and air currents from the outlet tube. As it is not installed, it is very likely that odors will enter if the neighbor cooks, it also prevents the entry of cold or hot air from outside.

The filters are clogged or grease falls from the hood?

The hood’s continued performance can only be maintained if the filters are cleaned and / or replaced regularly. If the filters of recirculation hoof get saturated with grease, your cooker hood will struggle to work properly and won’t be able to remove cooking odours efficiently.

Important: if you have a ducted extractor hood, don’t forget to take out the filters. Also remember to regularly clean the grease filter; are suitable for washing in the dishwasher. (The filter may change colour, depending on the dishwasher detergent used. Use an intensive cycle at a minimum of 65 °C)
