Kitchen Hood Height

Kitchen Hood Height

What is the right hood size for good extraction?

THE DEPTH OF THE HOOD
A - very often, a 80 cm deep kitchen is fitted with a less deep extractor hood (50cm deep) that does not extract fumes well.
B - For the 80cm depth, Valcucine offers hoods with shapes and dimensions that are sufficient to completely cover the cooking area thus ensuring better extraction.
 
THE WIDTH OF THE HOOD AND THE HEIGHT OF THE WORKTOP
A - If the width of the hob is greater or equal to the hood, vapours and odours cannot be completely extracted, especially if the hood does not have a powerful motor. For safety reasons the hood must not be installed less than 65cm above the hob.
B - If a hood wider than the hob is installed, extraction is improved and the aesthetic result is definitely more attractive because the hood can become a feature and design element that distinguishes the kitchen.
