Before buying a fume hood it is important to understand its uses correctly.
A fume cupboard or a fume hood or fume cabinet is a type of local ventilation device that is designed to limit exposure to hazardous or toxic fumes, vapours or dust. It is not a storage cabinet.

The underlying principle is that air is drawn in from the front (open) side of the cabinet, and either expelled outside the environment or filtered and fed back into the room.
Fume hoods are used for:
A fume hood is just one part of a whole system that includes a base cabinet (for benchtop hoods), a work surface, ductwork, and exhaust blower.
Your initial decisions while purchasing a fume hood should be based on four criteria: “space, function, location, and air supply.” This will allow you to make the best choice suitable to your requirements.
Keep these basic considerations in mind while choosing the most suitable and energy efficient fume hoods and the process should be a much easier and cost effective one.
