A saturated or damaged Carbon Filter can drastically reduce your cooker hood's efficiency, and prevent it from reducing airborne grease.
When cooking food, as we all know moisture and odours escape into the atmosphere. The Carbon Filter is important for removing odours whilst the hood is recirculating air around the kitchen. It does this by absorbing moisture, grease and smoke while you cook. Most cooker hoods have a carbon filter and a grease filter. The carbon filter is particularly important if your hood does not have outside venting.
You ideally need to replace the carbon filter in your cooker hood every 3 to 12 months, depending on how much you like to cook. Some carbon filters have a colour change system to indicate when they need to be changed. When the filter becomes clogged it is important to change it as soon as possible because your hood won't function to the best of its ability, as the motor will have to 'labour'.
Replace an old exhausted filter with this genuine filter, and restore your cooker hood's performance in managing your kitchen's air quality and aroma.
Cooker Hood Maintenance Tips:
1. Change your filters as soon as they have reached saturation. They will no longer be useful at this point.
2. Duct the fumes to the outside air in the summer.
3. Use the cooker hood in recirculating mode in the winter. Please check model fit list to ensure this part is correct for your model. Specification:
