The range hood is a built-in exhaust device that hangs above the range and helps to remove grease, smoke, stale air and other cooking smells from the kitchen. Range hoods generally are equipped with filters to remove grease and other elements from the air.
An inspection of the range hood will first make sure that the unit is operational and that it is located an appropriate distance away from the cooking surface. In addition, the inspector will check that the filters are clean, that the exhaust fan is vented properly and that the unit doesn't overload any one electrical circuit.
