hood/insert - please help me

Posted by housebuilder14 (My Page) on

So I am going to have 45 inches of burners (three 15 inch combisets). What size hood do I use -- 48 inches? Or should I do custom? What does my insert need to be?
I am so confused by how the hood and blower are chosen. Do they come together? Separate?

I know it is confusing. You may not know enough yet to benefit from a separate thread on this subject, perhaps you want to review threads on the appliance forum about hoods? Here is one overview, but it isn't complete.
A 48" hood would work for you, bigger would be okay too. You will choose between buying an "all-in-one" hood which includes the parts you see from across the room and buying an insert which could be put in a custom surround like cabinetry, or drywall, or copper.

54'' with at least 600 CFM of oomph. 2x that if a grill is part of that setup.

I never really did understand it all, so I went with a hood/insert combo from the same company. Life is too short
