Thermador - 1300 cfm external blower

Posted by tnom (My Page) on

I am remodelling my kitchen. Bought thermadaor
36 inch Professional Series Rangetop PCG366G
Also installed
42 inch Professional Series Low Profile Island Hood HPIN42HS with external 1300 cfm blower.

But when i turn it on, it does not feel that it is blowing to its full power.
When we were buiying this powerful blower, the sales person told us, it is so powerful that it will suck up all air from the house, so we had to install a air dampner to replace suxked air with fresh air.

Does anybody have any experience with thermador 1300 cfm blower?

I had a similar feeling with my Independent 1400cfm external blower.

The actual cfm rating will depend on how long the ducting run is and how many turns it takes.

I put up the 15 page instruction manual to the baffle filters on max power and blower sucked the manual right up to the filters. It hangs there indefinetly without my hand supporting it.

I thought there would be more sound and fury but probably a good thing that there is not.

That is the problem, My 1 page also did not get sucked by the blower. that is why I am concerned.
I had the thermador person come and check my installation and he said everything looks fine, but he could not confirm that blower is working to its full potential.

In my small bathroom I have 100 cfm bathroom ventilator. It can suck up 1 page.

That is a definete problem.
