(Total Wattage X 3.5) / 100 = Cubic Feet Per Minute First, refer to your stoves manual and check the total wattage of your burner and boiler. Multiply the total to 3.5 to get the BTU (British thermal units). You can then divide the BTU to 100 to get the CFM. Once you have calculated, check the range hoods CFM. It should match or be more than the calculated CFM of your stove to be ideal range hood size and capacity. Maintenance and Repair When choosing the right kitchen hood, also consider the ease in maintenance and the price for parts replacement. You can consult with sales representatives or check the specifications or manual to see whether the filters and parts you need to maintain are easy to clean through simple methods. Check if they are made in material that doesnt corrode when washed in soapy water. Buying a range hood with parts that dont wear out easily and cost a lot to replace will be good investment. With all these factors in mind, you can make informed decisions and buy a range hood that will possibly last you for years.
The hot, moist, greasy effluent stream produced by cooking is suctioned in and exhausted outside, instead of letting it blow right in your face. Any chef who spends a significant amount of time in the kitchen environment will attest to the difference between cooking in comfort, and having to endure a steam bath for several hours. While were on the subject of comfortable cooking, it is worth noting that an overhead range hood provides additional lighting, right where you need it the most. One of the considerations for selecting a range hood should be the amount of light it provides, as well as the type of lighting - halogen, fluorescent, incandescent, or a combination. Keep in mind that the bulb wattage does not need to be high, since the hood will be much closer to the cooktop than the room lights. In addition to work lights, some high-end designer range hoods offer spectacular lighting effects, and some hoods also include warming lights.

If you have ample space then you may want an island range in which case youll need to consider the different island range hoods available. The most popular of types for an island are stand alone hoods that are stylish and functional. If there is already a cabinet above where you want your range to be located then your solution is to either have a carpenter shorten the cabinet or replace it with a shorter cabinet that will give more breathing space to the range underneath it. Wiring is a consideration as well. A ductless range hood would require that you shorten the cabinet and do the required wiring before you install your range.
