In honor of National Fire Prevention Week, we would like to put the spotlight on the Vent-A-Hood Magic Lung. It’s an award-winning piece of engineering that has been a mainstay of our manufacturing prowess throughout the decades. And now, almost 80 years since our founding, the Magic Lung remains one of the most critical features of effective ventilation for all of us at Vent-A-Hood.
Yes, the Magic Lung helps make our range hoods among the quietest on the market when operating at full capacity. Yes, the Magic Lung helps make our hoods some of the easiest to clean. And, yes, those things are important because we must address these features regularly in our everyday lives and the cooking that we do. But one of the most important aspects to the Magic Lung is what goes unseen: the fire resistant features that should be top of mind to anyone looking to protect their single biggest asset, their home.
House fires lead the nation in the loss of life, property and monetary damages. And the leading cause of all residential fires comes from cooking. To be exact, some 28 percent of all house fires are traced back to the kitchen and, most often, unattended cooking where the source of the fire originates.
But the Magic Lung has an incomparable ability to separate cooking contaminants and collect grease in the E-Z Clean tray, allowing ductwork traveling to the outside of the home to function at capacity. Acting as a centrifuge, this design impacts the efficiency of the hood, the effectiveness of the CFM to move air, the whisper-quiet technology of the sound output, and the overall peace of mind for the homeowner. Instead of allowing combustibles to coat ductwork and act as an enhancer for a grease fire to spread rapidly throughout a home, the Magic Lung captures and separates those contaminants to be disposed of properly.

We take great pride in the form and function of the patented Magic Lung with Sensasource that increases or decreases power to accommodate the heat level coming from the cooking surface. Technology in our own lab has proven the effectiveness of the Magic Lung. But that’s nothing compared to the letters we’ve received from customers over the years about the cooking fires that were extinguished with the help of the Magic Lung.
So, while consumers shop for a range hood and ask questions like: How loud is it? How hard is it to clean? They might also want to ask : How safe is it? To read more about the Magic Lung, visit us online athttp://www.ventahood.com/magiclung.jsp.
