A range hood is a kitchen essential that helps eliminate unpleasant smells, dirt, and fumes. It keeps the air clean and removes excess heat while allowing you to cook with comfort. To make sure it is installed properly, it is best to appoint professional electricians. It takes a few hours to set it up, while the costs depend on the type of range hood you want to install. GA Perry has a team of experts who specialise in handling all types of electric wiring and installation of kitchen appliances.

The Breakdown of Costs

The installation of kitchen range hoods can cost you anything between $500 and $2000. This price includes the cost of labour, transport, and the hood itself. If you are not sure how much you need to allocate for this service, let us help you break down the costs! Here is what you need to pay depending on the type of range hood:

  • Hood system: the average cost is $50-$100 per hour and the installation work typically lasts from one to four hours; the difficulty of the job and the location can significantly influence the number of hours and rates per hour.
  • Island range hood system: the costs range from $300 to $500, and the price will depend on the size of the hood; larger models can take up to four hours to install.
  • Vent hood system: expect to pay anything between $100 and £2000, depending on the ductwork involved to navigate the ventilation outside of the home.
  • Vent range hood outside: installing a vent range hood outdoors usually costs around $500
  • Range hood ductwork: installation costs vary from $85 to $100 per hour, and it takes about four hours to complete the work.
  • Venting through the roof: this process is cheaper and less laborious than installing vents through the walls; expect to pay between $250 and $500 in total.
  • Kitchen exhaust fan: the installation costs are similar to putting up a bathroom fan, and they range from $65 to $300.

Which Type of Ventilation to Choose?

The best option is to choose a range hood that takes the fumes outside your house. It can be a vent that goes through the walls or the roof. This is the most efficient way to purify the air in your kitchen and eliminate dirt and pollution. However, this option is the most expensive to install and you need to be prepared to pay a heftier price. The other option is a ductless, re-circulating hood. It is also a good option as it will recycle the air and purify it through the filter. The price will also vary depending on the style, additional features, and the power of suction. Many contemporary range hoods come with in-built sensors and timers which is very handy but also more costly.
