94 08 – ACCESSORIES + GUIDES The diameter, length and number of bends in the duct affects the efficiency of your extraction. Often, the actual extraction is half of the motor capacity, due to poor installation. Use ducting that creates the least possible resistance. This means using ducting that is as smooth as possible inside with as few bends possible. In the case of flexible ducting, make sure the ducting is taught. Try to keep the distance of the ducting as short as possible. In situations where the distance is large and requires lots of bends, it's best to get a hood with the highest possible extraction to compensate for the loss. Here’s how to install your hood correctly. Please check your local building regulations for clearance height restrictions for your hob from your hood. HOOD INSTALLATION Use a 6" (160 mm) diameter hose to maximise the capacity of your extractor fan. During windy weather, you may find that the damper clatters, creating unwanted noise. With a magnetic damper, however, this does not happen, and you also prevent cold air from penetrating into your home. Ensure that the feedthrough in the wall is smooth Use as few bends as possible Make sure that the duct hose is well extended Choose dampers with the least possible resistance The recommended distance above the hob is 50–70 cm. It will be easier to work under if the hood is raised slightly. NB: The distance above a gas hob must be at least 70 cm due to the risk of fire. Hob: 50–70 cm Gas hob: min. 70 cm
