Range Hood

Ever notice how your kitchen smells like bacon for days after cooking it? We know you probably think of this as an added boon of frying that favorite of fats, but not everyone enjoys that third-day bacon smell. That's where the range hood comes in. It's actually a ventilation device that expels odorous air. Thing is, it only works when you a) are aware of its existence, b) turn it on, and c) have it vented through the wall to the great outdoors. How to Install a Range Hood explains all the steps to installing one properly.
