42 inch hood over 30 range?

12 years ago

We will have a 30 inch gas range, likely BlueStar, centered between wall cabs that will be about 60 inches apart.

I could have a 42 inch wide hood and it might even look better in that space than a 36. Is there any capture advantage in having the 42 versus the 36 for a 30 inch range? Or is it overkill or even counter-productive? Not yet sure whether to go 24 or 27 deep. We stir fry.

Also debating whether to go internal or external (inline) for the motor. Will rear vent into the garage space and then up through garage roof. One turn and about 15 feet up.

Would appreciate any thoughts or guidance.
