Buying a downdraft ventilation system.

Choosing a downdraft ventilation system.

Unless you are remodeling your kitchen or building your kitchen from scratch, you are generally not making the decision about whether to use a downdraft range vent or a range hood, which is a more common venting system. Instead, you’re likely replacing a downdraft ventilation system that you already have.

In the case of making a replacement, your first step is to measure the exact dimensions of the downdraft vent that you currently have so that your new one will fit in seamlessly. There is a wide variety of widths to choose from, but the most common sizes needed for most kitchens are 29” – 31” downdraft ventilation systems.

Aside from the unit’s size, other factors to consider when choosing the best downdraft vent for you include the features you want and the style you prefer. In terms of features, a removable grease filter downdraft ventilation makes cleaning easier than ever. Style wise, stainless steel downdraft vents are the most common, but you might prefer a black downdraft vent if you have dark counters or other similarly styled appliances, like a black microwave. There are even downdraft vents with integrated lights, which can add a little stylishly flair to your cooking space.

Advantages of downdraft ventilation.

A downdraft vent for your cooktop is a good option if you don’t have space for an island range hood, wall-mount range hood or under-cabinet range hood above your stovetop. You may also choose a cooktop with downdraft vent if the style of your kitchen would be impacted by the addition of a range hood, like if you have very high ceilings.

Unlike a range hood, which goes above your cooktop, a downdraft hood will be positioned within the counter behind your cooktop. Some are stationary while other models can be positioned as needed. You can also find other cooktop models with downdraft vent integrated between the burners.

Ventilation for your range or cooktop (there is a difference between a range and a cooktop) will help to prevent stains on your ceilings and cabinetry from steam, grease and smoke. If you have a gas cooktop, ventilation will also help to remove the chemicals that gas produces from the air in your kitchen. To ensure that your downdraft is in working order, you can always check out Best Buy’s appliance, delivery and repair services, where experts are standing by to help.
