Why use our calculator?
Beginning masters need to know that planning ventilation in the kitchen is an important step that should not be skipped. At the core of the entire air purification system is the hood. It allows you to remove unpleasant odors, smoke and excessive heat while maintaining high air quality.
You can use this calculator to roughly calculate kitchen hood capacity by area or room volume. The program performs the calculation based on reference airflow data for gas and electric kitchens. Each turn of the ducting requires a 10% increase in extraction capacity.
How do I estimate the capacity of my kitchen hood?
- Enter the square footage and height of your kitchen.
- Select the type of heating equipment.
- Specify the number of hood duct turns or ignore it.
- Click the "Calculate" button.
