Vent-a-Hood

Vent-A-Hood® was the first manufacturer of home cooking ventilation and range hoods. Vent-a-Hood® traces its history back to the 1930’s when Dallas-based Lone Star Gas was looking for a way to increase natural gas sales to residential customers. In 1937, Carr P. Collins, Sr., a Dallas financier and founder of Fidelity Union Life Insurance Company, financed this family-owned company. Miles Woodall, Jr., nephew of Collins, was recruited in 1938 to manage the company. Today, his son, Miles Woodall III, is CEO of the company. The company moved to Richardson in 1961 .  The first range hoods were manufactured in a house with a dirt floor in Dallas, and then sold door-to-door. The primary ingredient in the success of kitchen exhaust hoods is Vent-A-Hood®’s uniquely designed, fire safe, “Magic Lung®” blower system. Throughout the years, ventilation hoods have been improved, but the original concept is central to the design and remains unequalled in the field of ventilation.
