Even the most efficient and well-equipped cooker hood runs the risk of losing its suction power if the ducting is not done optimally. Therefore, it is well worth your time to ensure that it is done according to regulations. And, of course, seek professional assistance and guidance if you are uncertain.

Rigid and smooth ducts

The first important piece of advice relates to using rigid and smooth ducts, as they are the best and most effective types of ducting. Flexible hoses should only be used if absolutely necessary. Rigid ducts perform better and have optimal airflow because the air is drawn more efficiently through a solid and smooth surface.


Shortest possible ducting

Furthermore, it is essential to ensure the correct dimensions of the exhaust pipes and always choose the shortest possible ducting. The ducting should have the same diameter as the cooker hood's exhaust on both the ducting and the roof/wall outlet. Additionally, the 90-degree bend should be positioned as far away from the cooker hood as possible.
