Understanding Ideal Hood Suction Power 理想的抽油烟机吸力

1. Minimum Effective CFM Calculation 最小有效CFM计算

  • Focus on the area directly above the cooktop for CFM calculation. 关注直接位于灶具上方的区域进行CFM计算

  • Measure the width and depth of your cooktop area in feet. 测量您的灶具区域的宽度和深度(以英尺为单位)

  • Multiply width by depth to get square footage. 将宽度乘以深度以获得平方英尺

  • Multiply the area by 100 for the minimum CFM required for a standard hood. 将该面积乘以100以获得标准抽油烟机所需的最小CFM

  • Cooker square area X 100 = CFM 灶具面积 X 100 = CFM

2. Converting Suction Power m³/hr to CFM 将抽力m³/hr转换为CFM

  • Many hoods rate suction power in m³/hr instead of CFM. 许多抽油烟机以m³/hr的形式表示吸力,而不是CFM

  • Convert m³/hr to CFM by multiplying by 0.6. 通过将m³/hr乘以0.6来将其转换为CFM

  • For example, if the suction power is 600 m³/hr, the CFM would be 360. 例如,如果吸力为600 m³/hr,则CFM将为360

What is the Ideal Hood Suction Power ? 理想的抽油烟机吸力是多少?

Disclaimer 免责声明 I am neither a manufacturer nor a kitchen specialist. Through extensive reading and online research, I have arrived at a conclusion that I will share below. 我既不是制造商也不是厨房专家。通过阅读和在线研究,我得出了一个结论,我将在下面分享 CFM stands for Cubic Feet per Minute, and it is a measurement of airflow volume. In the context of kitchen hoods, CFM refers to the amount of air that the hood's ventilation system can move per minute.  Higher CFM rating indicates a more powerful ventilation system, which can quickly and efficiently remove pollutants from the kitchen environment. CFM代表每分钟立方英尺,是空气流量的测量单位。在厨房抽油烟机的背景下,CFM指的是抽油烟机通风系统每分钟移动的空气量。更高的CFM评级表示更强大的通风系统,可以快速有效地清除厨房环境中的污染物。 Understanding this, we know that higher CFM translates to better performance in the kitchen. Unfortunately, higher CFM or suction power usually comes with a higher price. This raises two simple questions : 了解到这一点,我们知道更高的CFM转化为更好的厨房性能。不幸的是,更高的CFM或抽力通常伴随着更高的价格。这引发了两个简单的问题: 1. What is the minimum effective CFM? 什么是最小有效的CFM? Typically, when calculating CFM for a hood, the focus is on the area directly above the cooktop where the hood will be installed. This area accounts for the immediate space where ventilation is needed most during cooking. A simplified calculation to determine the CFM (cubic feet per minute) needed for the hood area directly above the cooktop: 通常情况下,计算抽油烟机的CFM时,重点放在直接安装在灶具上方的区域上。这个区域在烹饪过程中最需要通风。一个简化的计算方法用于确定直接安装在灶具上方的抽油烟机所需的最小CFM(每分钟立方英尺):

  1. Measure the width and depth of your cooktop area in feet (ft). 测量灶具区域的宽度和深度(以英尺为单位)

  2. Multiply the width by the depth to get the area in square feet. 将宽度乘以深度以获得以平方英尺为单位的面积

  3. Multiply the area by 100 to get the minimum CFM required for a standard hood. This provides adequate ventilation for most cooking activities. 将该面积乘以100以获得标准抽油烟机所需的最小CFM。这为大多数烹饪活动提供了足够的通风

For example 例如 :

  • If your cooktop area measures 2.5 ft wide by 2 ft deep, the area is 5 square feet. 如果您的灶具区域宽度为2.5英尺,深度为2英尺,则面积为5平方英尺

  • 5 X 100 = 500 CFM

This calculation provides a general guideline for determining the MINIMUM CFM needed for the hood area directly above the cooktop. Keep in mind that specific cooking habits, kitchen layout, and other factors may warrant adjustments to this calculation. Remember, the higher the CFM the merrier. 这个计算提供了确定直接安装在灶具上方的抽油烟机所需的最小CFM的一般指导。请记住,特定的烹饪习惯、厨房布局和其他因素可能需要调整这个计算。记住,CFM越高,越好。 2. Most hood only indicates the suction power (m³/hr), how to relate it to CFM? 大多数抽油烟机只指示抽力(m³/小时),如何与CFM相关联? Many hoods are rated in terms of Suction Power (m³/hr) rather than CFM. In such cases, you can convert the Suction Power (m³/hr) to CFM (ft³/mnt) using the following general guideline: 许多抽油烟机的评级是以吸力(m³/小时)而不是CFM来表示的。在这种情况下,您可以使用以下一般准则将吸力(m³/小时)转换为CFM(每分钟立方英尺)

1 m³/hr = 0.6 CFM +/-

So, to convert from m³/hr to CFM, you would multiply the value in m³/hr by 0.6. 因此,要将m³/小时转换为CFM,您需要将m³/小时的值乘以0.6。 For example 例如 :

  • If your hood has a suction power of 600 m³/hr 如果您的抽油烟机的吸力为600 m³/小时

  • 600 X 0.6 = 360 CFM

In conclusion, using the example above, we find that a suction power of 600 m³/hr is insufficient for a cooktop size of 2.5ft wide and 2ft deep. 使用上面的示例,我们发现600 m³/小时的吸力对于2.5英尺宽、2英尺深的灶具来说是不足够的。

In Conclusion 结论

With the guidance provided in this ultimate guide, you're now equipped to make an informed decision when selecting the perfect hood for your elite home. By considering factors such as style, functionality, and key specifications, you can elevate your kitchen's design and performance to new heights, ensuring a luxurious and enjoyable cooking experience for years to come. 通过考虑风格、功能和关键规格等因素,您可以将您的厨房设计和性能提升到新的高度,确保长期以来享受奢华而愉悦的烹饪体验。
