An outdoor rangehood is similar to the rangehoods you would find in indoor kitchens. They are powerful exhaust systems designed to capture unwanted heat, steam, smoke, grease and smells. It does this by sucking the air up, filtering it, and expelling it via ducting.
So, what makes a good BBQ rangehood?
As BBQ rangehoods are exclusively designed for use in outside areas, they’re the heavy-duty version of the indoor types. They are built to move a lot more air and also resist a lot more heat due to usually being above a grill/flame. There is one main feature that separates different outdoor rangehoods from each other, in terms of performance – their extraction fan power.
If you have a partially enclosed alfresco space, we would highly recommend the use of a rangehood made specifically for the outdoors. They are great for the extraction of unwanted smells, smoke and heat but will also protect any nearby walls, ceilings or other structures from the build-up of grease. Grease build-up can be messy to clean. Left to linger, it can do long-term damage and present a potential fire hazard to your property.
Should you live on a large property with ample outdoor space and BBQ to cook on, out in the open, (and no neighbours), you may not need an outdoor rangehood.
