How much does it cost to install an exhaust fan in the kitchen?

Many kitchen exhaust fans are part of a range hood, which can cost $30-$4,500, depending on size, type and cfm; installation adds another $250-$1,500, depending on whether the project is simply connecting and hanging the range hood, or if new metal ductwork must be installed to exhaust the air outdoors.

Are ductless range hoods effective?

Due to the fact that ductless range hoods recirculate the air back in the kitchen instead of venting it outside, the kitchen might become humid. So, they are less effective than vented range hoods. Ductless range hoods require changing the filters regularly in every 3 to 6 months.
