Outdoor kitchen BBQ - Vent Hood Noise Level

calynnJuly 6, 2006

I hope I am posting this in the correct forum. We are going to be building an outdoor kitchen and our BBQ Grill will be under a covered patio which requires us to get a vent hood for proper ventilation. My question and concern is...Those who have Vent Hoods under a outdoor patio structure, how is the noise level with the vent fan on? Do you have to keep it on HIGH while BBQing or will it do a good job moving the smoke away on the LOW setting?

My vent fan in my kitchen, when turned up to it's highest level is very NOISY. Fortunately, I usually keep it on low. I just don't want to have my guests sitting there while this fan is blasting while we are BBQing because the dining table will be fairly close.

I would love to hear from those of you that have this scenario and could offer me their experience.

Thank you!

Hi calynn,
We have an open air cooking spot. Maybe what you need is a low noise ventilation fan. Most fans have noise decibel rating at the back panel.
