GE went out of its way to advise range-hood installers of the best way to install a water heater or a furnace — that is, by following ASHRAE standards. Why didn’t GE bother to tell range-hood installers that ASHRAE also has something to say about the best way to install a range hood?
If your heart is set on a stainless hood, and feel a custom wood range hood would be mutually exclusive, consider the solution shown above! The stainless range hood is complemented by the enclosure overhead, which encases the duct work, resulting in a harmonious and fitting combination.
If you have a huge family, and you indulge in commercial-scale cooking that requires a powerful exhaust fan, you’ll need to install a powered makeup air unit like those manufactured by Electro Industries of Monticello, Minnesota or Fantech. These units move a lot of air; in winter, the incoming air is cold, but it can be heated with 10,000-watt electric resistance elements if you want. Be prepared to suffer a huge energy penalty. The model EM-WH1025K from Electro Industries will supply 632 cfm at a 50 F° temperature rise. If you want a 1,200-cfm range hood, you’ll need two of these makeup air units; they cost about $1,800 each.
