At what height should a horizontal and inclined hood be hung above a gas and electric stove?


Dur­ing the oper­a­tion of stoves, it is nec­es­sary to clean the atmos­phere of the room from harm­ful prod­ucts released dur­ing com­bus­tion. There­fore, the pres­ence of an exhaust device in the kitchen is real­ly vital. But at what dis­tance from the stove is it required to install a kitchen hood? From this para­me­ter depends on the effi­cien­cy of the device and ensure the clean­li­ness of the air sur­round­ing the cook.

Height of horizontal and inclined hoods

The dis­tance between the bot­tom pan­el of the device and the hob depends entire­ly on two cri­te­ria — the place­ment of the equip­ment and the type of stove.

Height of horizontal and inclined hoods

The type of the hood itself, its com­po­nents, as well as the size of the air duct do not deter­mine the required instal­la­tion height, except for sit­u­a­tions with a low ceil­ing, when it is sim­ply impos­si­ble to mount the hood high­er for struc­tur­al rea­sons. The cal­cu­la­tion should always take into account the rat­ed pow­er of the equip­ment, adding or sub­tract­ing 10 cen­time­ters from the aver­age design height of the instal­la­tion. By the way, about oth­er rules for installing the hood — read the fol­low­ing arti­cle.

Horizontal hood

The height of the hood, in which the steam suc­tion plane is locat­ed hor­i­zon­tal­ly, depends only on the type of stove. The pat­terns of place­ment of this type of equip­ment depend on many para­me­ters, the main of which are the char­ac­ter­is­tics of the device, mod­el, type of plate:

  • Above the gas burn­ers, the device should be hung at a dis­tance of 65–85 cm;
  • Above the elec­tric stove — 60–80 cm.

Inclined hood

When mount­ing an inclined hood mod­el, you must adhere to the fol­low­ing rec­om­mend­ed heights:

  • 55–65 cm when there is a gas burn­er at the bot­tom;
  • 35–45 cm if food is cooked on an elec­tric stove.

Inclined hood

Nat­u­ral­ly, no one for­bids mount­ing the hood where its oper­a­tion will be most con­ve­nient. How­ev­er, all the rec­om­mend­ed val­ues ​​​​are not tak­en from the ceil­ing. When cal­cu­lat­ing them, sev­er­al impor­tant cri­te­ria should always be tak­en into account:

  • kitchen area;
  • Her lay­out;
  • Inte­ri­or;
  • The pow­er of the installed hood;
  • House­wife growth.

If nec­es­sary, the instal­la­tion height of the equip­ment can be eas­i­ly increased, but it must not be low­ered below the min­i­mum per­mit­ted dis­tance. Such instal­la­tion will com­pli­cate the oper­a­tion of the equip­ment — the hood will inter­fere with the house­wife, who will soon get tired of hit­ting her head against it.

Impor­tant! By plac­ing the hood too low, you pre­de­ter­mine its con­stant heat­ing. It is bet­ter not to allow this, oth­er­wise the equip­ment will quick­ly break down.

Mount­ing height above elec­tric stove

By itself, any kitchen hood is a design that allows you to force­ful­ly suck in pol­lut­ed air, puri­fy it with high qual­i­ty, tak­ing all kinds of fumes, incom­plete com­bus­tion sub­stances, smoke com­po­nents, food odors and oth­er sus­pend­ed impu­ri­ties formed above the stove dur­ing cook­ing.

The design of the exhaust unit sig­nif­i­cant­ly deter­mines the height of the equip­ment loca­tion, the con­di­tions for its instal­la­tion. Accord­ing to the mount­ing fea­tures, the fol­low­ing hoods are pro­duced:

  • The sus­pen­sion sys­tem is com­plete­ly flat, the device is mount­ed under the kitchen cab­i­net, direct­ly hang­ing over the stove;
  • Built-in type device, when the case is mount­ed inside a cab­i­net hung above the stove;
  • The most com­mon wall-mount­ed option — fas­ten­ing is car­ried out on the wall adja­cent to the stove;
  • Cor­ner-type equip­ment is con­ve­nient in a sit­u­a­tion where it is con­ve­nient to place it in the cor­ner of the kitchen, if there is a stove there;
  • The island ver­sion of the device is used in spa­cious rooms where it is required to fix the hood in the cen­ter of the kitchen to the ceil­ing.

When mount­ing a kitchen hood over an elec­tric stove, it is nec­es­sary to be guid­ed by the fact that it is unde­sir­able to place it below 60 cm from the hob. Although this para­me­ter is not crit­i­cal, since there is no risk of blow­ing out the flame. There­fore, the min­i­mum dis­tance is quite pos­si­ble to vary.

At what height should a hood be installed above a gas stove?

Many years of prac­ti­cal expe­ri­ence in the prac­ti­cal oper­a­tion of var­i­ous mod­els of hoods has led to the fact that rec­om­men­da­tions have appeared that deter­mine the min­i­mum allow­able height of the equip­ment above gas burn­ers.

Dif­fer­ent man­u­fac­tur­ers in the instruc­tions for the equip­ment oblige con­sumers to com­ply with cer­tain instal­la­tion con­di­tions. For exam­ple:

  1. Hood brand Metida60W, man­u­fac­tured by Shin­do, has a capac­i­ty of 420 m3/h and should be installed at a dis­tance of 75 cm from the burn­ers. It is not rec­om­mend­ed by the man­u­fac­tur­er to use the device if there are no dish­es on the work­ing burn­ers that cov­er an open flame.
  2. Hood brand Bosch DWW09W650 has a declared capac­i­ty of 650 m3/h It has a tele­scop­ic air intake design, it can be low­ered to the stove, but not clos­er than 65 cm from the burn­er.
  3. The Russ­ian instal­la­tion of the brand Sat­urn M60 has a capac­i­ty of 245 m3/h Man­u­fac­tur­ers rec­om­mend mount­ing it high­er than 75 cm from the burn­er.

In gen­er­al, the dis­tance between the burn­ers and the bot­tom of the instal­la­tion is deter­mined by the fol­low­ing require­ments:

  • Elim­i­nate the pos­si­bil­i­ty of spon­ta­neous com­bus­tion;
  • Pro­vide con­ve­nience for the house­wife;
  • Ensure that pol­lut­ed air is drawn in com­plete­ly.

Based on these require­ments, it can be assumed that the instal­la­tion height will be nor­mal, at which the dis­tance between the burn­ers and the hood ranges from 70 cm to 90 cm.

How­ev­er, in order to opti­mize the func­tion­ing of the equip­ment, this val­ue must be clar­i­fied. You should cer­tain­ly ensure the con­ve­nience of the house­wife, so take into account her growth. In some cas­es, the instal­la­tion height of the hood should be increased by pur­chas­ing more pow­er­ful equip­ment.

Installing an outlet

The prac­ti­cal height of the hood instal­la­tion above the stove affects the loca­tion of the out­let into which the device will be con­nect­ed. Most often, the out­let is installed direct­ly above the hood body. Although a good option would be to fix the out­let a lit­tle high­er (10–30 cm) from the line of hang­ing kitchen cab­i­nets.

It should not be for­got­ten that it is nec­es­sary to shift the hole for the future out­let by 20 cm rel­a­tive to the axis of sym­me­try of the device, since this is where the exhaust chan­nel will be locat­ed.

Installation nuances and additional recommendations

The instal­la­tion of the hood requires the obser­vance of some nuances that guar­an­tee the effec­tive func­tion­ing of the equip­ment:

  1. The air receiv­er must com­plete­ly cov­er the work­ing sur­face, since only in this case it will be able to com­plete­ly cap­ture the evap­o­ra­tion from it.
  2. When pur­chas­ing and installing the hood, be sure to con­sid­er the dimen­sions of the niche where it is sup­posed to be mount­ed.
  3. Ide­al­ly, when the hood is slight­ly wider than the hob.
  4. The hood must cer­tain­ly be equipped with good light­ing and not make a lot of noise.
  5. Hoods are equipped with a short elec­tric cord at the fac­to­ries, which makes it advis­able to install an out­let near the equip­ment.
  6. The air duct of the instal­la­tion must cer­tain­ly have a min­i­mum of right angles — this affects the effi­cien­cy of air intake.

Video installation of the hood with your own hands

We are pub­lish­ing a video show­ing how a home crafts­man inde­pen­dent­ly fix­es the pur­chased hood over the gas burn­ers of the stove. A detailed com­men­tary by the author of the video allows you to under­stand all the intri­ca­cies of the edit­ing process and get a visu­al rep­re­sen­ta­tion of the sequence in which this work needs to be done.

The height of the loca­tion of any hood and its com­pe­tent instal­la­tion ensure the long-term oper­a­tion of this equip­ment. Read the instruc­tions care­ful­ly before mount­ing.
