Using A Vent-a-Hood Over a Wolf Range

Written by Appliance Dude | September 3rd, 2012

Reader question: I want to use a hood from Vent-a-hood over a Wolf 36″ gas range with six burners (R366).
What CFM levels should I look for in the hood?

When someone is going to put a typical pro hood over a 6 burner pro gas range I tell them to aim for about 800-900 CFM’s (of course that is assuming that the duct run has no more than 1 turn/elbow and that the length of the run isn’t exorbitant). Ventahood products are different though. If you are using one of their hoods with the Magic Lung technology you can get away with less CFM’s. I’ve seen people using hoods with 600 CFM Magic Lung blowers and they are just fine b/c the hood is actually performing like the blower is 900 cfms.
