Downdraft hoods sit on the range and ventilate air produced during cooking. Downdraft hoods are not as effective as updraft hoods (like wall mounted range hoods and island range hoods), but some type of ventilation is better than no ventilation at all. Without air ventilation, the indoor air pollution will increase in residential kitchens. Downdraft hoods still work using a blower and ductwork. Thus, whether or not you choose a downdraft or an updraft system may depend upon which type of ducting is already installed in your home. Additionally, downdraft hoods are often used on kitchen islands.
