Independence Day

Most people associate the Fourth of July with fireworks, parades, barbecues, picnics and baseball games. At Vent-A-Hood, we also associate it with entrepreneurial drive, family devotion, and the pride that comes with saying that our range hoods are “Made In America.” As a third-generation family-owned business, we like creating jobs, manufacturing beautiful range hoods, and delivering a premium product with a reputable guarantee. Our country’s founding fathers may not have known the endless possibilities they would create by writing and signing the Declaration of Independence. But they were entrepreneurs of a different era with a passion for freedom and the ability to dream of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. At Vent-A-Hood, we’ve been making our business dreams come true for more than 81 years as a result. From all of us in the Vent-A-Hood family, we wish everyone a safe and happy Independence Day.
