We can offer you the best cooker hood for any kitchen size. Whether you have an open living-room kitchen or a small, enclosed kitchen.
The cooker hood capacity should always be at least six times the room volume.
Cooker hood capacity = Length x width x height x 6
With air extraction, the cooking vapours are extracted by the fan and passed via the exhaust air pipe into the open air or an air flue. With circulating air systems, the cooking vapours are circulated within the room for filtering.
We always recommend choosing the maximum possible diameter of 150 mm. If your exhaust air duct and wall sleeves are smaller than 120 mm in diameter, you may experience higher noise levels from the waste air. In this case, we would recommend a circulating air hood for low-noise operation.
To prevent performance losses, the space between the cooker hood and the wall sleeve should be as small as possible. If the distance is too far, we recommend circulating air for effective operation.
Extracted air always needs an air intake – which is why adequate ventilation is important. In extractor mode, a window should always be open near the hob. Seek advice as to what should be taken into account if you have an additional fire source such as an open fire.
