Excerpt from Range Hood Size Calculator - How to Choose The Correct Size of Range Hood :
Range Hood Size Calculator - The trend in today's modern kitchen cooking appliances is toward larger commercial-style cooking units. Viking, Dacor, and Wolf are the leading manufactures of residential/commercial style cooking appliances, and all offer 60" ranges capable of producing in excess of 120,000 Btu's of heat. This is as much heat as the furnace generates in many smaller homes! These units quickly produce a bounty of smoke and grease when they are operating at full-force.
On the other end of the spectrum, most of us cook with a typical four-burner range. These throw off one-third the amount of heat as the commercial style monsters, but they still must be properly vented in order for your home to remain odor and germ-free. No matter which type of cooking unit you use, the idea is the same - it's all about air flow. The bad news is there is no absolute formula for determining exactly how much airflow is the correct amount. The good news is that two different methods of calculation can be utilized allowing you as the homeowner to dial the number up or down based on how you live and cook.
