Buying a New Range Hood?
Other Things to Consider
- Size: Range hoods should be at least 3 inches wider on each side than the range or cooktop, and should be as low as 18 in. and as high as 20 in. from the cooktop.
- Power: Cubic feet per minute (CFM) is the measurement of air movement power in range hoods. For everyday cooks, a range hood with at least 350 CFM is recommended.
- Sound: Measured in A-rated decibels (dbA), it is important to keep in mind the more power your range hood has, the louder it will be.
- Filters: Filters on a vented range hood are removable and most are dishwasher safe. It is recommended you clean filters every month. Filters on ventless range hoods cannot be washed, but do need to be replaced every four to six months, depending on cooking frequency.
