Besides, are ventless hoods any good?
Unvented range hoods do filter some grease and cooking odors from the air, but the general consensus is that they’re nowhere near as effective. Nor do they remove heat and humidity, so they won’t help keep your kitchen cool while you cook.
Accordingly, can you put a 36 inch range hood over a 30 inch stove?
You can install a 36-inch range hood over a 30-inch stove. It will be safe, efficient, and offer ample coverage due to its increased suction power. Most people prefer going with a wider range hood due to these advantages.
Does a range hood need to be vented outside?
Range hoods do not have to be vented to the outside. You can purchase hoods without ductwork called ductless hoods. But, ducted range hoods are almost always preferred over ductless hoods.
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. For further information, please refer to the installation manual of your model.
How far can you vent a range hood? Your range hood duct should not exceed 30′ for a straight run, 25′ for a run with one elbow, and 20′ for a run with two elbows. The shorter the duct, the better. If your ductwork is too long, your kitchen air may not reach the outside.
Simply multiply the width of your stove by 10 to get the appropriate CFM for your range hood. For example, if your cooktop is 36”, this calls for at least a 360 CFM hood.
A range hood fan should move a minimum of 100 CFM of air for every 12 inches of stove width. This means that if you have a stove that is 30 inches wide then you need a range hood with a fan that rotates at least 250 CFM of air.
To vent out these additional contaminants, size your hood between 6” and 12” larger than your cooktop on each side. For example, if you own a 36” outdoor range, the best hood size is between 48” (12” wider) and 60” (24” wider).
The standard height for a range hood is between 28 and 36 inches from the cooktop for a gas range and electric range. 28 inches is the minimum height. If the hood is any closer, it may become damaged. Any further than 36 inches and your hood won’t move air away from your cooktop efficiently.
