Is higher CFM better for a range hood?
A higher CFM means that your range hood will more easily ventilate unwanted fumes and odors from your kitchen. A higher CFM is generally necessary for gas cooktops and ranges that produce more BTUs of heat or for large electric ranges.
What should I look for when buying a range hood?
It is important to make sure that your range hood is an appropriate size for your range, that it offers sufficient ventilation power, and that it is of an appropriate style for installation in your kitchen. First, you will need to decide whether your kitchen can accommodate a ducted hood or a recirculating hood. You will also need to make sure that your hood is at least equal to your range's width to allow for maximum ventilation coverage. Finally, the CFM rating offered by your hood should equal 100 CFM for every 10,000 BTUs of heat on a gas cooktop. For electric, look for hoods that provide 100 CFM per 10 in. of stove width.
Are expensive range hoods worth it?
In most cases, yes. Expensive range hoods are expensive for a reason. They typically provide higher BTU ratings, come with cooktop synchronization, have smart home compatibility, are built ductless recirculation, and have many other convenience features that make them well worth the investment.
