Rangehoods

Question: How often do the active charcoal filters have to be changed?

The filters should be changed every 3 months to ensure optimum extraction performance, although this may vary depending on what kind of cooking you normally do and how often. If you have a Smeg rangehood with electronic controls, an indicator light will tell you when it's time to change the filters. Clean filters are essential for optimum hood performance.
