Selecting The Best Ventilator For You

Selecting a ventilator might be overwhelming and confusing if you do not know what you are looking for. This post is here to help guide you into choosing the correct ventilator for your wood range hood. If you still have questions after reading this article, feel free to reach out to us by phone or email.

All wood range hoods need a ventilator in order to function properly. The ventilator is the unit that actually removes the cooking fumes and exhaust from your kitchen. Ventilators are classified by CFM (cubic feet per minute). CFM is basically how powerful your ventilator is or how much suction it can produce. The higher the CFM, the more air will be removed from the home.

The general rule of thumb when determining how much CFM you need is to take the total BTU rating of your range and divide it by 100. The total BTU rating can be determined by looking up the individual BTU ratings of each burner and adding those numbers together. If you have a total BTU rating of 50,000, you would need a 500 CFM ventilator.

We offer a variety of ventilator options ranging from 250 to 1200 CFM. Below we will go through each ventilator, in depth, highlighting its features and what applications it would typically be used for.
