What is the difference between a recirculating extractor hood and a conventional one?

But what happens if your home does not have a smoke outlet to the outside? What solutions do we have?

The extractor hood, although it is one of the elements that goes unnoticed or costs us more when choosing, is one of the essentials. Its objective is to filter the air so that the kitchen is filled with fumes, odors and grease. It’s procedure is very simple, its engine sucks the air, passes through a mechanical filter and expels it outside the home through regulatory ducts for optimal aspiration.

We return to the origin, ¿what happens if your home does not have a smoke outlet to the outside? What solutions do we have?

The recirculation hood is the most efficient alternative to a conventional extractor hood. Normally, it is used when the kitchen does not have a smoke outlet or when the pressure drops in the air outlet installation are greater than 40%, for example, when you want to place the hood in a place where the exit to the outside is very far away.
At Frecan we work on responsible and efficient recirculation systems that allow us to clean kitchen fumes without having to expel them outsides. And by default now that the cold comes, these systems allow saving in heating, keeping it inside the house.

Charcoal Filters (recirculation)

This system it is recommended when due to installation restrictions a external outlet can not be provided. Recirculating cooker hoods are provided with charcoal filters which are composed by active carbon particles that due to its nanoporosity remove grease and cooking odors and recycle air back into the kitchen.
We suggest changing carbon filters minimun about every year, depending on how intensive the use of the hood is, to ensure proper operation.
