We are installing (as part of our kitchen reno) a new DCS gas cooktop, 4 burners: 1-15,000 BTU, 2-11,000 BTU, 1-10,000 BTU. Our KD thinks we need a 36", 1000 CFM hood. The appliance stores seem to all think a 30", 600 CFM hood is more than adequate.
We have a small kitchen (about 10' x 11') which will be open to the dining room after the reno. I think a 36" hood may overwhelm the kitchen.
We are looking at a Zephyr-made 30", 600CFM hood with baffle filters and a 7" duct opening sold under the store brand at Yale Appliance in Dorchester. We're not yet sure if it will vent through the wall and then up to the roof or directly up through the roof.
We don't know who to believe. I have read a lot on this site and other places and still don't know what to do. Thanks for any help!!
