Selecting your rangehood

Choosing the right Rangehood for your kitchen can often be a tiresome task. At Schweigen we understand this dilemma and have made it as easy as possible to choose the perfect Rangehood for your kitchen.

 Step 1  Choosing the right rangehood for your kitchen

The choice of an appropriate rangehood size in relation to the cooking area is essential for a satisfactory technical operation.

OPTIMAL

Rangehood bigger than the cooking area

ADEQUATE

Rangehood equal to the cooking area

INADEQUATE

Rangehood smaller than the cooking area

Overhead Cabinet Rangehood Installation Position

It is also important to consider the bench-top and overhead cabinetry depth before installing the rangehood.
The information below is to be used as a guide only, drawings are not to scale and do not account for all circumstances.
The cooktop is centrally installed in the bench-top in the diagrams below.

When the overhead cabinetry is constructed and installed deeper than standard, ensure the rangehood is installed as close to the front as possible. This will increase the rangehood extraction results as there is a greater coverage of the cooktop surface area.

 Step 2  Choose the right IsoDrive Motor Size

The type of motor a Schweigen Silent Rangehood will require depends on the level of suction the user demands from the rangehood. This all depends on the type of food you cook and the amount of cooking you undertake. A rangehood with sufficient power will ensure that all smoke, steam and odours are removed from your kitchen. The guide below will help you choose the right motor configuration.
