Criterias of choice
Being engaged in the choice of exhaust system for the kitchen, it is necessary to immediately identify certain criteria that are crucial in this matter.
Modern apartments have a kitchen with a large area (especially studio apartments), and it is important that the performance of the hood was designed for these dimensions. As a rule, Faber hoods are powerful enough, but it is still worth counting the throughput before making a purchase. For this there is a simple formula - the total area of the room and the height of the ceiling are multiplied by the coefficient of air renewal, which is 12.This coefficient corresponds to sanitary standards, in which the air in the kitchen is completely updated approximately every 5 minutes.
All Faber products have electronic control, therefore, it is worth considering its pros and cons.
- possibility of the choice of the push-button or touch control unit;
- remote control (not available on all models);
- additional modes and options (intensive mode, sleep timer).
- there are software failures;
- spontaneous on / off;
- high sensitivity to voltage drops.
All modern models have halogen or LED lighting, which is the most economical and durable. Light is the most natural, therefore the natural color rendition of the dishes that are being prepared is preserved.
This criterion is very important, although many do not give it the necessary attention. The optimal level of a working device must be in the range of 35-45 dB, but in order to meet these indicators, you have to sacrifice the performance of the equipment. Therefore, most powerful hoods exceed the optimum noise level.You should choose a technique with a margin of performance, this will help minimize the negative impact of noise. It is also important to monitor the cleanliness of the filters.
Types of filters
There are two types of filters - fat and coal. The first type is designed for the rough cleaning of air from grease and other large particles. They are equipped with hoods Faber. Most often, they are reusable and are perfectly washed with soapy water, less often you can find disposable paper filters.
For a deeper cleaning of the air and for the circulation mode, a carbon filter is required. It must be purchased additionally. Enough for 2-6 months, depending on the level of air pollution in the room.
To the main technical characteristics of hoods include the following parameters:
- type (chimney, built in, inclined, suspended, table);
- mode (recirculation, retraction);
- power consumption;
- maximum performance;
- number of speeds;
- control board (touch, button);
- noise level.
The design of Faber hoods is their hallmark, a kind of business card company.For anyone, even the most unusual kitchen, you can pick up your unique copy, moreover, this technique has high efficiency and functionality.
All devices are designed to remove contaminated air from the premises.
If you want to maximize the efficiency of devices, you need to follow a few tips:
- to increase productivity, and to reduce the noise level, it is worth choosing plastic pipes instead of corrugated ones, they create less resistance to air flow, which is output to the outside;
- Remember that bends and sharp turns also interfere with the free movement of air;
- To avoid the effect of reverse thrust, the air outlet should be set up directly outside, and not through the ventilation of the building.
