How important is a range hood?
Hi everyone. We're building a new house, and I have heard that we really should get a range hood. Well, if we get an range hood, I need to get a sufficiently powerful one that vents outside and isn't obnoxiously loud, and if we have a sufficiently powerful hood, we need a makeup air system, which will cost more money, and then we'll need to find another place than above the microwave in our modest-sized kitchen....
A bit about us, we hope to have a large family and cook a lot, although we'll likely use an electric range. We are building a 2,000 sf home on a budget. I intend to buy nicer appliances down the road, but it sounds like adding a real hood down the line would be pretty significant.
Does having a real vented hood really make that much of a difference for air quality/cleaning the rest of the house? We certainly fry vegetables and meat somewhat regularly. Obviously this would be nice if we had lots of money to play with, but we don't, so we have to carefully prioritize. Thanks for any thoughts!
