Duct-Free, Air Recovery System (ARS) Ventilation: It is always preferable to vent a range hood to the outside. When that isn't possible, the best method for removing cooking contaminants from the air is, hands-down, the Vent-A-Hood 4-Phase Air Recovery System. This patented system removes virtually all grease, odors, steam and smoke. In short, it's the only duct-free ventilation system that actually does something!
