Vent liner and hood size?

Posted by AJinNH (My Page) on

We are putting a 36", 6 burner range top in one of the corners of our remodeled kitchen. The appliance store has suggested a Ventahood 34 3/8" BHPSLD Standard Wall Mount Liner. We're having the cabinet company make us a hood to match our cabinets.
Is the vent liner size adequate for the range top? I've heard that you want a hood 6" wider than the cooking surface, does that mean the liner should be wider too?

Has anyone used one of these Ventahood liners?

Ideally, you want the next size up, the Vent-A-Hood Professional Series BH240PSLDSS.

Ideally, you would want the hood 42" wide and 27" deep.

That gives you excellent capture area as well keeps the flammable wood away from direct heat.

Having the hood 31 1/4" above the rangetop is more than sufficient.

RE: Vent liner and hood size?

Thank you so much deeageaux. I'll check out the liner that you recommended. I had a feeling that the one we were quoted was too narrow. Your point about flammability is also appreciated as we were concerned about that issue.
I'm so glad that I asked this question.
Thanks again!
