Whether brass, iron, zinc or copper, a metallic range hood will become an instant standout feature of any kitchen. Obviously, you must look for high-quality appliances and trustworthy producers that use the best materials there are on the market. Choosing a copper or zinc range hood is a very important decision. It is not a thing that you change every season. An extractor must work efficiently and look great for decades! That is why, if your kitchen is especially spacious, consider a metal range hood for high ceiling. With a custom vent hood, it is the appliance that adjusts to your interiors and not the other way round.
When choosing a metal range hood it is essential to get the exact measurements, including the height. The optimum range of hood height improves the hood’s efficiency and durability. For instance, if the zinc vent hood is too close to the stove, this might not be as effective as one would wish. In the end, as beautiful as your brand new hood is, it has to get rid of all the odors and smoke coming from the daily cooking. The same might happen if your install an extractor that is much smaller than your cooktop area. It will never be as powerful as a metal range hood that is a little bit narrower than the stove.

They will know the rules and laws in your state concerning ventilation and whether your kitchen's layout allows you to have a ductless range hood or perhaps ducked one.

The standard height for a range hood is between 28 and 36 inches from the cooktop for a gas range and electric range. 28 inches is the minimum height. If the hood is any closer, it may become damaged. Any further than 36 inches and your hood won’t move air away from your stove efficiently. The rest really depends on the taste of the homeowner. Shape, size, patina finishing, and texture, all that can be matched to your current kitchen's decor.
