blower size needed for my hood??
I am installing a Blue Star 48 inch range top in the house I am currently building and will be installing a 54 inch hood over it. (I don't know what brand or if I will go with a custom hood as of yet). I do know that I will be installing a roof mounted external blower but I am not sure how big a blower, (how many CFM I need). My total btu output of the six burners will be 98000. I also have a grill that I will use often. I have read that since it is a remote blower, I may need to up the CFMs. I also want to mount the hood on the high side since I am taller. Any advice would be helpful. What brands of hoods would you recommend?
