Benefits Of A Copper Rangehood
Your kitchen is one of the most important rooms in your home, so you want it to be running at optimal performance. If you love cooking, one of the ways to improve your kitchen is with a high quality rangehood. Your rangehood allows you to enjoy a kitchen that’s free from smoke, odors, fumes, and grease – in other words, it rids your kitchen of any pollutants that can harm your health.
Choosing the right range hood however, presents its own problems – you want it to be beneficial to your kitchen, but you also want it to look good, right?
Range hoods come in a variety of materials, including stainless steel, plastic and glass. You can also get copper rangehoods, which have been increasing in popularity in recent years. If you’re considering copper, here are seven of the benefits and why this option is beneficial to you, and your home.
Why Choose Copper?
There are many benefits to copper rangehoods, including the following:
- It’s Durable
- Copper is known for its durability. It is a strong material, that also has a high resistance to stains, scratches, and dents. This means it will look better, for longer. If you do end up with damage of some sort, the good thing about copper is that minor scratches actually disappear over time. As for major damage, you can actually get it refinished and you’ll never notice the difference. This will help to restore it back to its original glory – and keep your kitchen looking great.
- It’s Beautiful
- Many of us can be quite particular about the look of our kitchen. A copper rangehood looks great, so you’re going to give your kitchen a sense of old-style charm. The best thing about copper is that you can get it in a number of different tones as well, so essentially you can choose a color that will complement your kitchen. This includes tones such as burnished orange. It’s not just colors that are enhanced with copper; you can also get these rangehoods in a variety of sizes, designs and shapes. Your only limit is your imagination. A great looking copper rangehood can also increase the value of your home if you’re planning on selling.
- Plenty of Variety
- There’s plenty of design options to choose from with copper range hoods and RangeCraft is happy to walk you through all of them. You can buy ones that can be easily mounted to your walls, suspended from the ceiling, or mounted underneath your cabinets. Some have a stainless steel chimney attached, others have a glass hood. Whatever the design of your home’s interior, you can find a copper range hood to suit.
- They’re durable, they look great – and copper range hoods are also built to last. Not only will they last, but they will actually get more beautiful over time. Copper changes color the older it gets, and this provides your kitchen with a unique, antique look. As such, it will never go out of fashion. Some manufacturers are so confident in the quality, they offer a lifetime guarantee.
- Easy to Clean
- Your kitchen is a heavy-duty area, especially if you love cooking. But with all the sauce splashes, meat grease, flying oil, and so on, your rangehood can get pretty dirty. As such, you need a range hood that is easy to clean. Copper is pretty effortless – all you have to do is wipe it down with a damp cloth. If it gets really bad, you can use vinegar and water and your rangehood should be sparkling again in no time.
- They might look like they belong in a fairy tale castle, but copper range hoods are actually very affordable. Do your research and shop around to find a style that suits your budget. And keep in mind that copper is designed to last for many years so considering their longevity, the return on investment is extremely high. They don’t need frequent repairs, and you’ll (likely) never have to replace it as long as it’s maintained.
- Finally, copper range hoods are good for your health! How so? Every time you cook under a copper rangehood, you are reducing the risk of toxins getting into your home, including carbon monoxide which is released into the air of your home when you cook. Copper is also naturally antibacterial, so it also reduces the amount of bacteria in your kitchen and your meals. It reduces the amount of dirt as well.

Copper In Computers
Copper is always willing to lend a hand. Copper improves microchips, which makes it useful for computers. Within these chips, copper facilitates electrical and thermal communications. Copper is a popular metal for circuits because of its excellent ability to conduct electricity without heating up. Copper circuits like this can also be found in cell phones and other electronic gadgets.
Copper has an omnipresence quality: it can be found almost anywhere! It also shows up in areas you wouldn’t expect, such as your own body.
Ancient Use of Copper
Copper is a major component of the oldest metal artefact ever unearthed in the Middle East, which dates back to 5100 B.C. Copper has been used to produce weapons, household objects, statues, and other artefacts throughout history due to its malleability and recyclability. However, because copper is so easily recycled, many artefacts were destroyed for their copper content and are no longer in existence. The Colossus of Rhodes, a 110-foot copper statue completed in 280 B.C., is one of the most famous examples of ancient copper recycling. The statue had been totally dismantled and the metal recycled by 654 A.D.
Copper in Technology
Copper is used in many electronic devices because of its electrical and thermal characteristics. Most cell phones have 12 percent copper by weight, which is higher than all of the other metal components combined. Copper reduces the power requirements of electrical equipment, resulting in decreased power consumption and longer battery life. Copper is one of the most environmentally benign metals on the planet because of its property, as well as its recyclability.
Copper is naturally orange or red in color, but it turns green over time as a result of interactions with air and water. This process is known as oxidation, and it occurs when a metal loses electrons, resulting in the formation of copper oxide. A layer of copper oxide 0.005 inches thick is thought to have formed on the Statue of Liberty within 34 years of its completion.
Statue and Buddha
Copper is used to create the world’s heaviest statue. The Statue of Liberty, officially known as Liberty Enlightening the World, is 204 metric tons in weight (225 US tons). From the base to the torch, the Statue of Liberty stands 46 meters (151 feet) tall. Gustave Eiffel erected the copper statue, which was created by French sculptor Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi and dedicated on October 28, 1886. It was a gift of friendship from the French people to the Americans.
Copper is used to create the tallest Buddha. The Zhongyuan Buddha stands 127.64 meters (418 feet 9.19 inches) tall in Lushan County, Henan Province, China. On September 1, 2009, it was consecrated, and on December 2, 2009, it was measured.
Copper is used to make the largest gong. It has a diameter of 5.15 meters (16.8 feet) and weighs 568 kilograms (1252 lb). Shanxi Baodi Real Estate Development CO. Ltd created the gong, which was shown at the Third China Taiyuan International Cooked Wheaten Food Festival on September 8, 2005 in Shanxi Province, China.
