Cooking is therapeutic, relaxing, fun: but ever noticed steam condensing on the windows? A cooker hood will improve ventilation and reduce moisture build-up. Yes, they're not just a handy light source – they can help with damp on the walls and behind fridges.
All cookers create steam – and hoods suck the moist air away to keep your kitchen smelling fresh. There are many styles and sizes available, so choose one that will cover the whole cooking area. Wider designs will work perfectly with full-width range cookers.
Washing machines and tumble dryers can also create moisture in your kitchen. If you're planning on installing appliances such as washer dryers, be sure to check it’s vented. Vented appliances expel damp air through the fitted hose. This pipe can be placed through a window or fixed to a permanent vent to allow steam to escape.
