Vent-a-Hood Appliances

The range hood has become a standard in most every kitchen in America. Since manufacturing the first home cooking range hoods over 75 years ago, Vent-A-Hood® has maintained its hood specialization and focus as the definitive home ventilation brand in the appliance industry. Vent-A-Hood® was the first manufacturer of home cooking ventilation and range hoods. The first range hoods were manufactured in a house with a dirt floor in Dallas, and then sold door-to-door. The owners would literally go out and make a sale, then return to the shop to make the hood for the customer. The primary ingredient in the success of kitchen exhaust hoods is Vent-A-Hood®’s uniquely designed, fire safe, “Magic Lung®” blower system. Throughout the years, hoods have been improved, but the original concept is central to the design and remains unequaled in the field of ventilation.
