Range Hood size and brand guidance sought

13 years ago

I am buying a Wolf 36" range (DF or gas-- still have to decide!), but I have heard LOTS of conflicting guidance on hood sizes.

Some say over size by 3" on each side (so 42" for 36" oven) or same size

Some say get a 17" deep if you are tall and don't want to hit your head (vs the standard 24") deep.

Some say hang it at 30" above the range, some say you can go up to 36" higher (again, good for tall people).

Some say you can get away with 600CPMs for a 36" stove, others say you have to have at least as 900CPMs (to cover the 800+ BTUs of the stove).

I am considering Best by Broan and Ventahood, but other suggestions are welcome.

I am interested in anyone's feedback on what size/brand they got and if they are happy. Thanks in advance.
