The extraction rate is another important consideration when choosing a cooker hood. To effectively remove odours, steam or smoke from your space, your appliance should be able to extract or clean the air at a rate of 12 times per hour.
The extraction rate required for your kitchen depends on its size.
To determine the rate of extraction needed, you will need to measure the height, width and depth of your space. Multiply all three numbers together to get the volume of your kitchen. Once you have the volume figure, multiply that number by 10. The outcome will be the rate of extraction needed for your space.
Be sure to check the rate of extraction on your chosen model before you purchase. This will help to ensure it works effectively for your requirements.
