What is a good extraction rate for a rangehood?
If you do a lot of cooking, look for a rangehood with an extraction rate of around 700m3/h.
How do I choose a rangehood?
In order for it to be effective, your rangehood must cover your entire stove or cooktop area. It’s important to measure this area so you buy the right size. You will find that they usually come in 600mm and 900mm sizes – which correspond to common standard and extra-wide oven and cooktop sizes.
What size rangehood do I need?
Getting the right size rangehood: Your rangehood should be the same width as your cooktop, to ensure all smoke and fumes are extracted. To make things easy, rangehoods are generally available in the same sizes as common cooktops, e.g. a 60cm wide rangehood is ideal for a 60cm wide cooktop.
What is the difference between a range hood and an exhaust fan?
Ventless (Ductless) range hoods clear the air from the cooking fumes, grease, smoke, and odor by using a fan with charcoal filters. Unlike ducted models, these types of range hoods filter the air from odor and smoke and recirculate the clean air back into the kitchen.

What is the average height of a range hood?

How do I hide my Rangehood?
One way to hide a range hood is to make it disappear. If you’ve got enough space, you can inset your range and vent hood and surround it with drywall. The entire vent assembly is out of sight, so if you paint the kitchen a single color, you’ve created a sleek, uncluttered facade.
