Wolf Hood VS Ventahood

Posted by beejay712 (My Page) on

We're remodeling our kitchen, installing a dual fuel LP Wolf range. Have lived and cooked for over 20 years without ventilation and since it is quite an investment we want to make an informed choice. We went to a distributor and looked at hoods, listened to hoods and we really liked how easy the Wolf ventilation system is to clean, looks sound, etc. Warned that the Ventahood had a metal pc that you had to unscrew and it could be full of grease. Checked a friends who had not cleaned it for 6 months and hers had nothing in it. Now I'm confused. For a 30" range is 600 cfm enough? Does using liquid propane change anything we should be considering? Thanks!

RE: Wolf Hood VS Ventahood

In the kitchen and appliances forums on this website you will find enough info on hoods to earn you a PHD on the subject. The short answer: Ventahoods are NOISY. There are many options to consider, and it's good that you're planning this early in your remodel.

Some general advice: Pick the thing that's right for you. Don't let a contractor or subcontractor steer you toward something that might not be right for you -- they just want to put in something that they know and that's easy for them to install. And make sure your installer has some expertise in this specific area. For many it's just a sideline.

Do a search on "hood" in those other forums, and you'll learn more than you ever wanted to know on the subject.

Good luck.
