RICHARDSON, Texas, Jan. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Vent-A-Hood, the company that created the modern residential range hood, has unveiled the first truly effective duct-free range hood with the introduction of the Vent-A-Hood Air Recovery System series.  

"We've launched a whole new category of range hood," said Skip Woodall, president and CEO of Vent-A-Hood, about the ARS series.  "Thanks to superior engineering and design, we offer the one real solution for residents in lofts, condos or highrises who have suffered with recirculating hoods that do nothing to clean the cooking air."

Unlike conventional low-quality ductless ventilation products on the market, Vent-A-Hood's new Air Recovery System includes a unique four-phase technology with four times the cleaning power to effectively collect the rising gases, separate the grease, contain the odor and trap the smoke for complete cooking air recovery.

The ARS series features an active canopy to capture cooking contaminants. A centrifugal blower then extracts the grease.  The air is pushed through an activated carbon bed with 50 times more exposure to cooking air than flat carbon mats in traditional ductless hoods to reduce odor.  And lastly, a large accordion microfiber filter makes Vent-A-Hood's design the only hood to address smoke when not venting to the outdoors.

"The Air Recovery System is a green technology to take pollutants out and put clean air back," Woodall said.  "It is the only range hood worthy of the Vent-A-Hood name that will clean and recover good air when ducting to the outside of a home is not an option."

The Vent-A-Hood ARS series, offered in two stainless steel designs, is now available across the U.S. and Canada.  For more information or to find a Vent-A-Hood licensed dealer near you, visit, call 1-800-331-2492 or email:
