The Perfect Small Range Hood for Your 24″ Range

Small Range Hood by THOR Kitchen

Kitchens come in all shapes and sizes. So, sometimes it just makes sense to invest in a small 24-inch pro-style range hood for your 24″ pro-style electric range. For smaller spaces, this can be the perfect selection as you can accommodate the needs of your kitchen without sacrificing your cooking and baking experience. 

A space-challenged kitchen also needs a small range hood — one that would fit flawlessly above the small range. 

Range hoods serve great power and purpose in any kitchen. But when it comes to a small space, keeping the air clean and fresh is even more vital. 

Good news — we have the perfect small range hood for your 24-inch range. Let’s talk about it. 

The Importance of a Range Hood

Every time you cook on your range, you are changing the breathable air around you. In fact, you are opening the door for air pollution to come in, sit down, and stay awhile. 

Most people do not realize that cooking can generate harmful substances in the air, such as carbon monoxide, formaldehyde, and other chemicals. What’s more, it causes the temperature to rise, steam and grease to hover, and odors to linger. Nobody wants to wake up to last night’s shrimp boil. 

In a small kitchen, all of this is going to feel amplified, potentially causing health concerns such as headaches, nose and throat irritation, nausea, and fatigue. Too much exposure could lead to serious issues for those who have asthma, heart disease, or lung disease. 

Why put yourself at risk when you don’t have to? All you need is a range hood. This will give you the greatest opportunity to have clean, breathable air in your kitchen.

Vented vs. Not Vented

Some range hoods require ductwork to vent the poor-quality air out of the kitchen. This ductwork will usually go all throughout the home, carrying whatever is inhaled by the range hood all the way to the outdoors. This is a great option — if you currently have the ducts in place. Otherwise, it could be quite a big job to tackle. 

Range hoods are able to work just as well without being vented outside. These will pull the toxins and odors out of the kitchen, running everything through baffle filters, before returning the clean air to you. This type of range hood does not require anything extra to take care of business, making it a helpful option. 

More Than Fresh Air

Fresh air in the kitchen and throughout your home is always enjoyable. With the addition of a high-functioning range hood, everyone will be breathing easily. But a range hood is more valuable than you think. 

Save Energy and Money

Did you know that range hoods can save you energy and money? Think about this —-

When you cook, your kitchen is going to heat up, causing your air conditioner to kick into high gear to keep the place cool. Do this regularly and you are going to find that your utility bill is being driven up higher and higher. 

Not only are range hoods energy-efficient to save you money on their own, but they also keep your AC from having to work so hard. In turn, keeping your utility bills in check. 

Aesthetically-Pleasing

Range hoods are also as beautiful as they are effective. If you have ever walked into a kitchen with a professional range hood, it has likely caught your eye — and not in a bad way. When placed over the range in a uniform fashion, it looks like one magnificent, powerful unit. 

Boosted Home Value

Remember how we told you that range hoods serve a purpose? Well, homebuyers know this too which is why having one in your kitchen can give a little boost to its value. This is even more true when it beautifully matches the range below. 

The Perfect Nightlight

Finally, aside from the fresh air, range hoods provide the perfect nightlight for your kitchen. Most people who have them turn on this light each night to lightly illuminate the space, creating a peaceful ambiance. 

Choosing the Right Range Hood

How do you know if you are choosing the right range hood for your kitchen? There are a few things you will want to consider, such as making sure it blends, that it is the right size, and that it has all of the right features. 

Make Sure it Blends

Range hoods come in all different styles. To find one that will look best in your kitchen, you will want to ensure that it blends with your current range. For a stainless steel range, you will want to pair it with a stainless steel range hood. 

When installed, it will give the appearance that they truly belong together. 

Pay Attention to Size

Just as you wouldn’t want to have a 60-inch range in a tiny kitchen, you also don’t want an oversized range hood. To ensure you are getting the right one, make sure it is the same size as your range. For instance, if you have a 24-inch range, you should have a 24-inch range hood. 

Must-Have Features

A few must-have features when investing in a range hood include: 

  • Suction Power. Powerful suction as you want to ensure that it will remove all of the bad stuff.
  • Quiet. Quiet operation because you won’t want to have to raise the volume of your conversation in order to have clean air.
  • Effective Filtering. Commercial-style baffle filters to maximize airflow and grease filtering.
  • Lighting. LED lighting not only helps you see what you are cooking, but remember – it makes a great nightlight. 
  • Easy Operation. Push button control for easy operation.
