How to make your kitchen ventilated

The kitchen has an important place in our Indian tradition. Every person in the house stays connected because of the kitchen. The women of the house spend most of their time in the kitchen.

The gas stove used in the kitchen generates various types of air-polluting elements while cooking.

Therefore, it becomes necessary to either reduce these air pollutants or keep them at normal levels so that it does not have any bad or fatal effects on our health.

Although there are many ways to ventilate the kitchen, according to modern homes, only two methods are effective.

  • Exhaust fan
  • Chimney

An exhaust fan is installed in most houses to ventilate the kitchen, as it is a cheap and simple solution.

But let us compare in detail between these two:

  • Exhaust fans, often installed in kitchen vents, draw smoke and odor out of the kitchen, but do not remove tiny particles of oil and sticky grease.
  • These tiny particles of oil and grease stick to various parts of the kitchen such as ceilings, tiles, cupboards and in a few days, make a thick sticky surface.
  • The kitchen chimney is mounted on top of the gas stove, whose powerful motor sucks out small particles of oil and sticky grease.

Why chimney is used in the kitchen

It removes smoke, odor, and sticky oil particles from the kitchen. So it keeps the kitchen clean.
