I have just purchased these filters. It says to fit with "Indicator Points Facing Downwards". This may be a silly question, but what are the indicator points?

The indicator points are the side with the printing on and go face down so that you can see them through the grill holes in your cooker hood. The printing will change colour with time and is therefore an "indicator" of grease saturation levels in the filter and when it requires relacement.

printed on one side only.
fit printed side down so it is visible when looking at hood
These cooker hood grease filters are complete with 'saturation indicators' which will change colour when they need to be replaced. The time between changes will be dependent on how often you use your cooker hood.
QWhat is the difference between a Carbon Filter & Grease Filter?1 Answer
- 05 August 2010
You generaly have carbon filters on recycleing extractors as the are designed to neatralise the cooking smells and stop grease. where as a grease filter is fitted to cooker hoods that extract to outside where cooking smells are not a problem as they are pumped outside and all it needs to do is stop the grease from gumming up you fan.
I have a Homark recirculating cooker hood with carbon filter but recently condensation has started collecting and falling onto the hob and settling on surrounding tiles/cupboards etc. Should I replace the carbon filter with the grease filters or carry on with carbon filters? Thank you.

Hi Auntielala, I would recommend you carry on with the carbon filters, as parts built specifically for certain models are always preferable to universal parts.
