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.
The second airflow calculation method commonly used in the industry is the 100:1 rule. This rule states that for every 100 Btu's of heat a range generates, the hood blower should move 1cfm of air. Let's say you have a four burner range and each burner produces 12,000 Btu's of heat. You should explore hoods with a minimum of 480 cfm blower rating, then applying the Common Sense Rule as needed. Don't forget to boost the number for island cooking applications.
