While shopping for kitchen range hoods, you’ll want to decide if you want a vented range hood or a ventless range hood. A ventless range hood, also known as a ductless range hood, filters air in the kitchen and re-circulates it into the room. These are perfect for kitchens in which ductwork cannot be installed.

Ventless range hoods are not as powerful as ducted range hoods but they may suffice if you do not do a lot of heavy cooking in your home. Many range hoods can be converted from a vented range hood to a ventless range hood option with a kit.
