Recirculation or Extraction?

There are two ways in which hoods manage the vapour and grease produced when you cook. In recirculation mode, cooker hoods use a fan to suck in vapours and pass them through a filter made from metal (permanent filter) or fleece (disposable filter). This removes grease and absorbs odours with an integrated active carbon filter. The cleaned air is then returned to the room. In extraction mode, cooker hoods use a fan to suck in vapours and pass them through the same filters, but the filtered air is then extracted outdoors. For chimney hoods, the exhaust air can be routed through the wall behind the hood or through a lateral extractor duct.

Filters for cooker hoods

To moderate the vapours, grease and odours produced when you cook, it's important to utilise a filter. With a recirculation cooker hood, controlled air exchange happens with two types of filters – a grease filter and an active carbon filter.

Odour filter - active carbon filter

Active carbon filters are used only for cooker hoods that recirculate air and don't extract it outdoors. With these filters, odorants are captured on the surface of the carbon and can block or impair its efficacy over time. Therefore, it's necessary to carefully clean and change both filters on a regular basis to ensure that the cooker hood operates correctly.

  • Disposable active carbon filter
    Disposable active carbon filters

    Disposable active carbon filters cannot be washed and should be replaced every appx. every four months, or after 120–200 hours of operation, depending on the type of cooker hood. Refer to the operating instructions for further details.

  • Washable/regenerative active carbon filter
    Washable/regenerative active carbon filters

    Reusable active carbon filters can be regenerated and reused 5–6 times before they need to be replaced. They can be regenerated after 160 operating hours or every 2–3 months, depending on the type of cooking.

Different carbon filters

  • Standard carbon filter
    Standard carbon filter icon
    Good: Standard carbon filter

    Standard carbon filters must be replaced approx. every 4 months or more often if the hood is used intensively.

  • Longlife carbon filter
    Longlife carbon filter
    Better: Longlife carbon filter

    Long-life carbon filters can be washed and restored every 3–4 months, or more frequently with intensive use. They can last up to 3 years.

  • Super Performance carbon filter
    Super Performance carbon filter
    Best: Super Performance carbon filter

    This long-lasting (up to 3 years) filter captures cooking odours to leave kitchens fresh. Regeneration must be performed every 3-4 months.

Grease filter

All cooker hoods are fitted with grease filters. These are designed to trap grease particles contained in the vapour which passes through the filter. When new or kept in a properly cleaned condition, all grease filters are non-flammable or fire retardant and self-extinguishing. Depending on the grease filter type, they must either be replaced (disposable filters) or cleaned (reusable filters) regularly. Care for your filter prevents unhygienic grease deposits and minimises the risk of a grease fire. The thicker the grease filter, the greater the air resistance and the lower the suction effect. This reduces the ventilation performance and usually increases the hood noise level. Hoods with a high suction force need filters of a certain thickness to prevent the grease from being sucked through the filter.

  • Fleece filter
    Fleece filter

    These are disposable filters that must be discarded and replaced when saturated. They are not washable and usually need to be cut to size. It is advisable to change these filters once a month.

  • Aluminium mesh filter
    Aluminium mesh filter

    Aluminium mesh filters may discolour to light grey or take on a matte appearance. This does not, however, impact on the filter's efficiency. The grease in filters that are not cleaned for extended periods can resinify and will not be removed during cleaning. They must be replaced.

  • Stainless steel mesh filter
    Stainless steel mesh filter

    Stainless steel filters are visually appealing and do not discolour when cleaned in the dishwasher (Intensive programme 60–70°C).

How to clean and re-use your filter

There are two simple steps to regenerate and re-use your filter. First, place the filter in a dishwasher and clean using an intensive programme (60°C, with no other dishes). Next, leave it to dry in the air or in a preheated oven (refer to the operating instructions for further details). The expected service life is 3–4 years depending on the individual filter and its use.

How to use your cooker hood

The cooker hood should be switched on a few minutes before starting to cook so that the air in the kitchen begins to move.

• Once cooking is finished, the fan should be left running for 10 minutes so odours in the room continue to be absorbed and the active carbon filter can dry out.

• Kitchens with a recirculation hood should be aired after cooking to remove moisture from the room.

Size and placement of hood

Island hoods should be wider and deeper than the hob. Wall hoods, however, can be the same width as the hob. The distance between hood and hob is usually between 40 and 75 cm. A larger distance is often required for gas hobs.

Large gas hobs

Recirculation hoods are not permitted for gas hobs. An extraction hood or controlled ventilation system must be provided with a minimum airflow of 15 m3/h per kW total nominal output.

Recirculation or Extraction?

There are two ways in which hoods manage the vapour and grease produced when you cook. In recirculation mode, cooker hoods use a fan to suck in vapours and pass them through a filter made from metal (permanent filter) or fleece (disposable filter). This removes grease and absorbs odours with an integrated active carbon filter. The cleaned air is then returned to the room. In extraction mode, cooker hoods use a fan to suck in vapours and pass them through the same filters, but the filtered air is then extracted outdoors. For chimney hoods, the exhaust air can be routed through the wall behind the hood or through a lateral extractor duct.

    • High effectiveness at low hood settings

    • No regular replacement costs for metal filters

    • Usually quieter than recirculating hoods if exhaust ducts are laid properly

    • No additional costs for active carbon filters

What Extraction Rate does my cooker hood require?

The airflow rate indicates how many cubic metres of air the cooker hood will displace per hour, expressed as m3/h. The ventilation performance is determined by the room volume and the required air exchange rate.

Important considerations

Municipal building codes may include regulations on installing wall vents for extractor hoods. During your planning phase, it is advisable to contact your local building authority and check whether any such regulations exist.

As vapours and odours may interfere with neighbours, it is also advisable to obtain approval from them for the location of a wall vent connected to an extraction hood. It is important to try to place the sleeve as high as possible and maintain the maximum distance possible from neighbours' windows (at least 2 m).

Cooker hood noise levels

To keep noise down in your kitchen, choose a fan with a low decibel value (dB). The sound level of cooker hoods is dependent on the selected power level and lies between 40 and 70 dB.

The differences in efficiency and noise level depend on the type of motor/fan chosen. And also whether kitchen vapours are extracted via edge or surface extraction. Airflow noises in the extractor ducting have a stronger impact on noise levels than the cooker hood itself.

Lighting

Most cooker hoods are equipped with halogen lamps (between 20 and 40 W) to illuminate the hob. Energy-saving lamps (9 to 11 W) are also used. The use of LED lamps is interesting from an energy-saving viewpoint and is on the rise overall. These lamps consume around 2.5 W each.

Benefits of LED lights vs. normal lamps

LED lights reduce energy consumption by up to 70%.
Quicksilver, sodium, plumb or other heavy metals are not used in their production.

And air pollution and heat generation is reduced. LED lights also have a long life expectancy of up to 50,000 hours/ 10 years. And cost less to maintain.

Filters

Cooker hoods feature the same basic design. They contain a grease filter, and in the case of recirculation hoods, also an active carbon filter.

The main differences are in their efficiency and noise levels, with the type of motor/fan chosen and whether kitchen vapours are neutralised via edge or surface extraction.
