# How many CFM do I need for range hood?

**range hood**fan

**should**move a minimum of 100

**CFM**of air for every 12 inches of

**stove**width. This means that if you have a

**stove**that is 30 inches wide then you

**need**a

**range hood**with a fan that rotates at least 250

**CFM**of air.

People also ask, is 400 CFM range hood enough?

The basic rule of thumb is that the burners on a gas **range**/cooktop produce a lot more heat than those on an electric **range** or cooktop. Then divide by 100 to find the minimum **CFM** needed for a **kitchen** with a gas **range** or cooktop. For example: 40,000 BTU gas **range** divided by 100 = **400 CFM range hood** fan or higher.

Secondly, is 900 cfm enough for range hood? If your ducting matches your ventilation power, your **range hood** will do its job properly and quietly. A good rule of thumb for estimating ducting diameter-**CFM** requirements is: 6” to 8” duct = 400 to 600 **CFM**. 7” to 10” duct = 700 to **900 CFM**.

Regarding this, is 300 cfm enough for range hood?

The HVI recommends taking a **stove's** BTU rating and dividing it by 100 to find a minimum level. For example, a **stove** with a 30,000 BTU rating would require a **kitchen hood** with a capacity of at least **300 CFM**. A **kitchen range hood** should be able to cycle the air out of the entire **kitchen** 15 times per hour.
