If you are having any trouble figuring out the necessary dimension of your vent hood, there are a few easy ways to go about this task.
From the range or stove top to where the bottom of the hood begins, there needs to be a clearance of at least 30” to 36”. What happens if the range has not been installed yet, though? If you know the height of your ceiling, deduct 66” to 72”. The space that is left over will account for the height of the hood. Moldings and other decor have to be taken into account, too.
They will reduce the height. As for the width, the dimensions of the stove or range serve as the client’s jumping-off point. The majority of our clients will add 6″ to the width overall, which is great for aesthetic appeal. If you need to make the hood wider, we can assist you, depending on the design in question.
Thanks to our beautiful showcase, it has never been easier for prospective clients to get a better feel for the work that we can provide. As you can see, we are more than capable of catering to any specification that comes our way. That’s because we ask all of the right questions when it comes to the materials used and why they are needed.
What style is the client looking for? What size works best for their kitchen? Is there a particular metal of choice that a client is interested in? What about unit models? These are all queries that are made before proceeding any further. This ensures that there are no further questions during the latter stages of the process so that the client remains fully satisfied.
1. Is higher CFM better for a range hood?
This is one of our most commonly asked questions so let’s dive right in. In order to properly power your range hood, you will require at least 100 CFM for every 10,000 BTUs of the stovetop in question. Let’s say that we’re talking about a 100,000 BTU stove. A 1000 CFM range hood would be needed. Electric stoves owners must multiply their stove’s width by 10. A 42” electric stove would require a range hood that offers at least 420 CFM.
600 CFM is recommended, so that exhaust can be vented from the kitchen in an efficient manner. There is no ideal one size fits all answer here. The CFM that is chosen will depend on the client’s kitchen habits and cooking style.
2. Should your hood be wider than your range?
At a bare minimum, the hood range should remain the exact same width as the cooking surface that is being used. Depending on your specific needs, you can also opt for a range hood that is 6″ wider than the cooktop. In most instances, experts will recommend choosing a hood that is 3″ wider on each side of the cooking surface. This allows for the capturing of additional exhaust that is created while cooking.
3. Which is better: a vented or unvented range hood?
A vented range hood is the better choice, and this should not even be in question. This air should always be vented outdoors, as opposed to being allowed to circulate within the kitchen. Without a vented hood, smoke and steam circulate, causing various particles of grease to attach themselves to the kitchen’s woodwork. An unvented hood can still remove some cooking odors and grease from the air, but they are not as effective. Heat and humidity also linger in the kitchen with unvented hoods, making cooking much less comfortable.
4. Do vent hoods need to vent outside?
Venting outside is always going to be the best choice for any homeowner that is looking to keep the air healthy and clean. While there are certain design limitations that may be associated with the ductwork, it is important to make sure that you have room to vent from the range hood to the outside before installation.
