General Electric was marketing its 1,200-cfm range hoods to residential customers. In fact, a GE Monogram press release bragged that the appliance could be installed anywhere: “The ventilation system operates at maximum venting capacity of 1,200 cubic feet per minute to keep the kitchen free of fumes and odors. Beautifully finished on all sides, the new Monogram island hood lends elegance to any kitchen.”
Here’s the new IRC provision, which is found in section M1503.4: “Exhaust hood systems capable of exhausting in excess of 400 cfm shall be provided with makeup air at a rate approximately equal to the exhaust air rate. Such makeup air systems shall be equipped with a means of closure and shall be automatically controlled to start and operate simultaneously with the exhaust system.
Another consideration is location in the room. Curtains should not be near the stove or too close to splash-back from the sink. Judy Soccio of Couture Window Art says to keep treatments over the sink short—and that includes any cords. Think about how much and what you cook, too: If odors and grease are an issue, Judy says, choose washable fabrics or those with Crypton or Microban.
