I cannot install external ducting for my cooker hood. Is recirculation a good idea?
Yes. All Whirlpool hoods can be used in ducted or recirculation modes. Recirculation removes unpleasant odours and fat from the air that passes through it and blows the air back into the kitchen. This system does not reduce the humidity of the air so the humidity in your kitchen can increase. Do not connect a motorless hood to a central ventilation system.
Do I need special filters for a circulation hood?
Yes, you would need a special fat and odour filter. This is usually a cartridge filled with odour absorbing grains of carbon. It is important that the filter is replaced regularly, see the manual for instructions.
What Cooker hoods can be vented from the rear?
What height above a hob does a Cookerhood need to be?
