Of course, you may not prefer having lampblack on the corner walls of your newly painted luxury cooking space. Isn’t it? That’s why we, MDM Custom Remodeling Inc, suggest kitchen chimney installations ASAP! In fact, it’s better to do so while renovating your kitchen.
Considerations for kitchen chimney installations
While looking for a chimney for your cooking space, the options are countless for you. Yet, making the right choice may be overwhelming, but our following guidance may ease that! Such as:
Generally, you can get a ducted chimney available from 60 cm to 90 centimeters wide. In fact, if you have two to four burners on the cooktop, 60 cm size is sufficient. Contrarily, 90 cm size is advisable for the cooktop having three to five burners.
The suction power of your chimney
For kitchen chimneys and other appliances, considering the suction power is essential. It depends on the size of your cooking space and the cooking style you follow to prepare your meals. For example, oily foods require suction power around 500 and 1000 cubic meters an hour!
Distance from the countertop
According to our kitchen remodelers, you should keep a minimum of 30 inches gap between the chimney and the cooktop. If you lower the height, it would be challenging to use or look into pans while cooking. Our experts can help you in the perfect installation that you can ensure from our previous clients’ comments on Yelp!
Two options are there to choose for chimney filters like Cassette and Baffle. The former one comes with multiple layers of metal mesh, while the second type contains overlapping layers of steel and aluminum. Make sure that clogging grease particles should not affect the suction power!
