A HOOD IS CRUCIAL TO BREATHING CLEAN AIR IN THE KITCHEN.
ITS MAJOR FUNCTION IS TO IMPROVE AIR QUALITY BY ELIMINATING SMOKE, UNPLEASANT ODORS, AND COOKING FUMES THAT ARE HARMFUL TO YOU AS WELL AS TO YOUR WALLS AND FURNITURE.
CHOOSE A HOOD THAT MAKES YOUR WORK EASIER IN THE KITCHEN, OFFERS FREEDOM OF MOVEMENT, AND SIMPLIFIES FOOD PREP.
THE HOOD ALSO NEEDS THE RIGHT LEVEL OF SUCTION POWER. BEAR IN MIND THE SIZE OF YOUR KITCHEN AND YOUR COOKING HABITS: THIS IS THE ONLY WAY TO ACHIEVE THE RIGHT LEVEL OF AIR EXCHANGE AND THE LOWEST CONSUMPTION OF ELECTRICITY.
A SIMPLE CALCULATION CAN PINPOINT THE RIGHT LEVEL OF AIR FLOW FOR ANY KITCHEN. SIMPLY MULTIPLY THE VOLUME OF THE KITCHEN BY TEN TO OBTAIN THE IDEAL AIRFLOW FOR THAT ROOM.
SELECT YOUR HOOD CAREFULLY AND BREATHE SOME FRESH AIR INTO YOUR KITCHEN.
THE KITCHEN IS ORGANIZED ALONG THE SIDE OF THE ROOM WITH THE COOKING SURFACE NEAR THE WALL. INSTALL YOUR HOOD ON THE WALL.
THE KITCHEN IS ARRANGED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROOM, WITH THE COOKING SURFACE AWAY FROM THE WALL. INSTALL YOUR HOOD FROM THE CEILING.
THE KITCHEN EXTENDS ALONG TWO WALLS OF THE ROOM AND THE COOKING SURFACE IS IN THE CORNER BETWEEN THEM. INSTALL YOUR HOOD IN THE CORNER.
THE COOKING SURFACE IS LOCATED BELOW A CUPBOARD. INSTALL YOUR HOOD INSIDE THE CUPBOARD.
CORRECT INSTALLATION BY SPECIALIZED TECHNICIANS IS KEY TO INSTALLING YOUR RANGE HOOD CORRECTLY. YOU SHOULD CHECK WHETHER THE COMPANY OFFERS THIS SERVICE. INSTALLATION AND MAINTENANCE PROCEDURES VARY DEPENDING ON THE TYPE OF HOOD: DUCTED AND RECIRCULATING.
MANY ELICA MODELS ARE DESIGNED TO OPERATE IN BOTH VERSIONS. BEFORE INSTALLING YOUR HOOD, KEEP THESE BASIC RULES IN MIND:
DUCTS HOODS EXPEL AIR OUTSIDE THE HOME. THIS IS THE MOST COMMON TYPE, AS IT GUARANTEES EXCELLENT PERFORMANCE, A HIGH FLOW RATE AND LOW NOISE LEVELS.
RECIRCULATING HOODS REMOVE UNPLEASANT ODORS USING A SPECIAL FILTER AND RETURN THE AIR TO THE KITCHEN. THIS TYPE IS SUITABLE FOR KITCHENS WITH NO EXTRACTOR VENT AND ALSO PREVENTS HEAT FROM BEING LOST TO THE OUTDOORS.
TO MAKE SURE THAT YOUR EXTRACTOR HOOD IS LONG-LASTING AND OPERATES CORRECTLY, THE FIRST STEP IS TO KEEP ITS FILTERING SYSTEM IN EXCELLENT CONDITION.
THERE ARE TWO TYPES OF FILTER:
A FEW HANDY TIPS WILL HELP YOU KEEP YOUR HOOD HEALTHY AND EFFICIENT.
(*) always check the product's instruction booklet to see how to wash your filter.
Selection of additional parts and components to help your hood work better and offer you even more.
Light as a emblematic element that distinguishes and celebrates the kitchen.
Indicates the diameter of the wall opening through which the vents will pass.
The option to vent the air behind the hood, which makes it possible to avoid installing an exposed chimney in ducted versions.
A unit of measure, expressed in watts, of total electrical consumption of the hood: motor and illumination.
Provided with the hood or as an accessory kit. Chimneys can be telescopic in order to adapt them to specific installation requirements.
Intuitive and innovative range hood control menu that allows users to adjust suction depending on the type of cooking they're doing.
Elica maintains the code of conduct promoted by Ceced, the association of domestic appliance manufacturers, ensuring that the flow and noise level data published in the catalogue comply with European measurement standards.
Inserted into the hood in the recirculating version, odor filters composed of activated charcoal capture and retain cooking odors. They must be changed regularly to help the hood operate optimally.
The suction or flow speed (expressed in m³/h) is the volume of air that a hood can extract in one hour.
An operating mode of the kitchen hood that can expel fumes and vapors from the kitchen outside the home, through a duct. This is the most common type, because it guarantees advanced performance at low noise levels.
Handy digital display, easy to read under any lighting conditions.
Conduits used to vent the air.
EDS3 (Elica patent) is a suction system that can reduce the noise level by 35%.
Elica patent. This is a compact system consisting of the motor, the filter, the light, and the controls, with various design options.
Select cutting-edge materials that blend design and function.
Option to install a motor outside the kitchen for additional benefits in terms of flow capacity and quiet operation.
Special indicator that recommends replacement or maintenance of worn or clogged filters to help the product operate correctly.
Type of material and color characterizing the visible design elements of the hood.
Found both in ducted and recirculating versions, grease filters retain the grease particles produced by cooking.
A special filter containing air purifiers. It captures dust, pollen, and bacteria: to ensure that the purifier operates perfectly, we recommend that it be replaced every 8-10 months.
An ergonomic hood, featuring shapes and sizes that facilitate the motions we make while cooking.
High performance in terms of maximum suction efficiency.
All hoods feature lights for the cooking surface, and some models have additional ambient light. This item indicates the type and number of lamps along with their consumption, expressed in Watts.
Motor power during the intensive phase (maximum suction efficiency), with a timer lasting 5 min.
Innovative odor filters with high filtering efficiency (87%) that last three years and can be regenerated with some simple steps. They also reduce the noise level.
LED, innovative lighting system that delivers advanced efficiency, quality, and energy savings.
Simple and elegant control wand that indicates the function selected using various colored lights.
Level of noise produced by the hood while operating, expressed in decibels (db). Values are provided for low speed and top speed, and where applicable, timer-controlled intensive speed.
Ventilation concentrated around the perimeter of the hood's ducting surface in order to reduce consumption and noise level.
Capacity of the range hood to force the extracted air through the ducting. Pressure is measured in pa (pascal. I pa = 1 n/m²).
The hood switches on for 5 minutes every half an hour.This function, in silent mode, can be activated when you're not cooking and used to ventilate the kitchen.
Multipurpose device that ensures that air is purified of dust, pollen, and bacteria; the special design makes it an attractive object and light source.
An operating mode of the kitchen hood that cleans the air sucked through the hood using a carbon filter, and then returns it to the kitchen.
Elegant remote control makes it possible to control airflow power and lighting level from a distance.
Special fastening system for easier installation of wall-mounted hoods.
Soft control panel featuring a mellow light to indicate which function is currently selected.
Innovative electronically controlled motor system able to deliver the best performance in terms of ventilation, consumption, and noise level.
A command that can be activated with a light touch of the fingertips.
