Month: October 2014

National Fire Prevention Month

October is National Fire Prevention Month and a great time to remind people about the features of the Magic Lung centrifugal blower in Vent-A-Hood products! Sponsored by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), Fire Prevention Month has roots that date back to The Great Chicago Fire of 1871 that killed more than 250 people and left more than 100,000 homeless. And today, the kitchen remains the #1 hot spot where cooking equipment accounts for 40% of residential fires each year.

At Vent-A-Hood, product performance and fire safety remain top priorities. And the proprietary function of our signature patented Magic Lung blower continues to lead the industry as the only residential ventilation system on the market today that prevents fire from spreading to the rest of the home.  For more about the efficiency, power and fire-safe performance of the Magic Lung, visit us online at http://www.ventahood.com/magiclung.jsp

Here’s to safe and happy cooking in your kitchen!
