Does range hood have to be same size as range?
In this regard, does the range hood have to match the range?
A vent hood needs to move exhaust, in addition to looking great in your kitchen. When it comes to design a stove hood can take couple of different directions. It can match the range itself, the cabinetry, and/or the other appliances.
Similarly, is 900 cfm enough for range hood? If your ducting matches your ventilation power, your range hood will do its job properly and quietly. A good rule of thumb for estimating ducting diameter-CFM requirements is: 6” to 8” duct = 400 to 600 CFM. 7” to 10” duct = 700 to 900 CFM.
In this manner, how big a range hood do I need?
If the range hood is attached to a wall, you should have 100 cubic feet per minute(cfm) per linear foot. So if you have a 30" wide range, you should have a hood rated at 250 cfm ((30/12)*100 =250). If the hood is over an island, you'll use 150 cfm/linear foot.
How far should range hood be from cooktop?
In general, most installations require a distance from 20" to 24" between the bottom of the hood and the cooking surface. Over a gas range, this distance should be between 24" and 30", unless otherwise specified.
