Rangehood Installation Considerations

Position of the rangehood

For a range hood to be safe and effective it is important it is positioned correctly. Not only do you need to ensure that it is positioned directly over the stove, but it also needs to be the correct height above the stove top. If the rangehood is too close to the stove top it can become a fire risk and conversely, if it is too high, it will not generate enough airflow from the stove top. So it's important to read the rangehood manufacturers manual to see what their recommended height is.

Important: The Australian standards (AS/NZS 5601) stipulate that a rangehood must have a minimum clearance above a gas stove top of 600mm

Position of the powerpoint for the rangehood

It is also important to consider where the powerpoint for the rangehood should go. It looks best if the powerpoint is hidden away from sight, but it also needs to have access in case you need to turn it off. It should also be positioned where it isn't going to be covered in grease etc.

Slideout vs fixed rangehood

The big decision here is effectiveness versus userability and look. In other words, a fixed rangehood generally works better but can stand out and get in the way of your head; whilst slideout rangehoods are generally not as effective but can slide away.

Ducted vs Recirculating Rangehoods

The last consideration is whether to have a ducted or recirculating rangehood. If cost and access isn't an issue then you would always go with a ducted range hood. This means that all cooking smells and smoke are vented to the outside world and not back into your house. However, often there isn't easy access to run a duct from a rangehood to outside the home and this can also end up costing a lot more than a recirculating rangehood.

How much does range hood installation cost?

This is a hard question to answer as every rangehood installation is different. The key aspects that affect the cost of installation are:

  • Ducted vs Recirculating: Ducted will cost more and this cost will vary depending on how far the ducting goes, where it can be placed and how it exits the house.
  • Cabinetry: Is there a space for the rangehood or does a space need to be made within the cabinetry
  • Power: Where is the closest power circuit to use for the rangehood.

Of course, on top of the rangehood installation cost is the cost of the rangehood itself. As a general guide, rangehoods can cost anywhere from $100 to over $2000. If you're trying to choose a good rangehood for your kitchen, you can check out the Choice guide to rangehoods.
