Hi Dallas,

 

Most range hood offer motors which will move 200-300 cubic feet per minute of air. This is fine for most kitchens.

 

A unit with a centrifugal fan will move more air and be quieter than a unit with a rotary fan.

 

To assure you are removing all of the odors, vent your hood to the outside, either through the roof or side wall of the kitchen.

 

Make sure you purchase a hood that covers the entire surface of the cooktop or range.

 

Most ranges are 30 inches wide so made sure you purchase a hood that is 30 inches or wider.

 

I have enclosed a range hood buying guide below.

 

Mike,
