Measurement



Duct size


The minimum duct size for a range hood is 4”, which is ideal for range hoods 400 CFM and under. At Pacific, all range hoods require a 6” or larger duct size. Smaller duct size may decrease your kitchen range hood’s efficiency by restricting the airflow as it travels through your ductwork. Check product page for specific duct size requirements for each model.

*If you do not have a duct ready, please contact customer service for professional advice. 



Under Cabinet Hoods


Width: The most common widths are 30 and 36 inches.
Range hoods should be the same width as the cabinets above the range.

Height: The recommended mount height between cooktop to hood bottom should be between 24” to 30”. You can use this information to determine how tall your range hood must connect with your ductwork.
It is crucial to install the hood at the proper mounting height. Hoods mounted too low could result in heat damage and fire hazard; while hoods mounted too high, they will be hard to reach and lose their performance and efficiency.

Depth: The depth of the wall cabinets above your range.
A standard depth of a cabinet should be 12”, which is good to install all Pacific under cabinet range hoods. These days, some companies are making wall cabinets 15” deep, which could cover TruSteam series range hood’s water inlet.  If you have 15” deep wall cabinets and want to install a TruSteam range hood, you will need to install a 2.5” depth metal box (30” and 36” in width available) behind the hood to avoid covering the water inlet.




Wall Mount Range Hood


Width: The most common widths are 30 and 36 inches. Range hood should be equal to or slightly larger than the range top.

Height: Recommended mount height between range top to hood bottom should be between 24” to 30”. You can use this information to determine how tall your range hood must connect with your ductwork.
It is crucial to install the hood at the proper mounting height. Hoods mounted too low could result in heat damage and fire hazard; while hoods mounted too high, they will be hard to reach and lose their performance and efficiency. 



Island Range Hood


You will need to call your local dealer store for island-mounted range hoods to schedule a pre-measure before installation can begin. We recommend scheduling the pre-measure before purchasing. After the pre-measure and purchase, contact your local store to schedule your installation.
