Island Range Hoods FAQ

Island range hoods are very effective at removing steam, smoke, and odors from your kitchen. In addition to their powerful fans, they’re helped by the fact that hot air from the range naturally rises - right into the range hood.

At Coast Appliances, we carry many popular brands of island range hoods, including Elica, Dacor, Thermador and more.

The rule of thumb for island range hoods is 150 CFM for every linear foot of cooktop. For a standard cooktop 30 inches wide - or two-and-a-half feet - your range hood should move 375 CFM.

When sizing an island range hood, look for a model at least as wide as the cooktop and ideally about 3 inches wider on each side.
