Frequently Asked Questions


How do you hide cooker hood ducting?

There are a few different ways you can hide cooker hood ducting, including:


1. Covering it with a false ceiling to give your kitchen a sleek, modern look.

2. Installing the cooker hood in a cabinet. This is a perfect choice for integrated cooker hoods.

3. Conceal it with decorative covers and bring a splash of colour to your kitchen.

4. Run the ducting behind your splashback and help protect the wall from heat and moisture.


How do you clean cooker hood filters?

Regularly cleaning the filter in your cooker hood extractor can prevent a build-up of grease and help maintain the air quality in your kitchen. To clean a cooker hood filter, you should:


1. Take the filter out of your kitchen extractor fan and place it in the sink.

2. Fill the sink with hot water and a few drops of soap or grease cleaner.

3. Leave to soak for 10-15 minutes.

4. Gently scrub the filter with a soft brush to remove grease and grime.

4. Rinse with hot water to remove any soapy residue.

5. Ensure the filter is dry and then place it back into the cooker hood.

If the filter does not appear clean, you can repeat this process or replace it.


Do you need a cooker hood?

While you do not need a cooker hood, having one is highly recommended, especially if your kitchen has poor ventilation or is prone to damp and condensation build-up. Fitting a kitchen extractor fan can help purify the air and reduce steam or grease fumes while cooking.


How high should a cooker hood be?

A cooker hood should be hung approximately 650mm to 750mm above a hob. If your kitchen extractor fan is too far away from your cooker, it will be less effective at reducing fumes and steam when cooking.


What size cooker hood do you need?

You should aim to fit a cooker hood that is the same width as your hob and oven. 60cm and90cm cooker hoods are common sizes, but at Homebase we stock cooker hoods from50cm to 110cm.


What are the different types of cooker hoods?

We have a wide range of cooker hoods available to choose from, so you can find the perfect fit for your kitchen. Keep kitchen extractor fans hidden with an integrated, canopy or telescopic design that can be installed in a kitchen unit. If you like the idea of a wall-mounted style, choose a chimney, visor, or angled cooker hood. Alternatively, ceiling mounted cooker hoods and island cooker hoods provide great solutions for those who want to maximise their space.
