The last year has seen me cooking just about every meal that I can. I spent too much of my money on buying prepared food while I’m out. Around the time that I realized I could save up to $50 a month on food expenses if I simply cooked my own meals instead, I jumped at the opportunity. I bought myself a few cooking magazines and then started subscribing to several cooking related Youtube channels to watch while the two of us were in my downtime. At first it seemed overwhelming as well as I wondered if I would ever learn enough to cook the meals I was dreaming of. After two or three months, I started to see the connections in how particular ingredients as well as spices are used in multiple dishes across multiple cooking styles. Before long I was tied up cooking in my study room three times a day with new dishes all of the time. When you are using the stove as much as I do, you create a lot of steam that can heat up your new home separate from you realizing it. That’s why I particularly appreciate having a vent hood above my stove top in my study room. It takes all of that steam and pushes it outside through an opening on my ceiling. Most of my heating and cooling company is the professional who installed the vent hood as well as the man who services it as well as maintains it. After long periods of time, the vent can become dirty and stained from the food you cook on a daily basis. I haven’t had any concerns with my cooking ventilation plan yet, but I plan to continue scheduling inspections twice a year because of how often I use it.
