What size duct do I need for 1200 CFM?

Range Hood Duct Sizing Chart

A 1200 CFM range hood requires 10” duct or larger. With a hood as powerful as 1200 CFM, it is even more important to ensure that you have installed the appropriate size of ductwork.

How fast does air move with 1200 CFM?

Air moves at a rate of 1200 cubic feet per minute. This is quite fast for a residential range hood. A hood this powerful will move heavy smoke and steam outside of your kitchen with ease. To test the power of your hood, boil some water in a large pot.

Once it reaches the boiling point, turn on your range hood and look at how much steam escapes and how much steam enters your duct. More often than not, your range hood will capture all of the steam.

How much make up air should a 1200 CFM vent hood have?

The amount of make up air is controlled by the size of your make up air damper, which is the same size as your ductwork. For a 1200 CFM vent hood, you’ll want 10” or larger duct work and a 10” or larger make up air damper. This will ensure that a sufficient amount of fresh air is replaced in your kitchen after greasy air exits your range hood.

What is the quietest vent at 1200 CFM?

The quietest vent hoods running at their max 1200 CFM are between 7 and 8 sones, which is about equivalent to the noise level of a normal conversation. This is incredibly quiet for a range hood this powerful. At lower speeds, you can enjoy even quieter operation.

1200 CFM Inline Exhaust Fans

A 1200 CFM inline exhaust fan is a powerful blower that sits inside your ductwork. Most blowers are local blowers, which are inside the range hood itself, but inline blowers are installed inside the duct which makes them much quieter. For a 1200 CFM blower, the inline or remote blower is a great option because these hoods are moving a lot of air. They can become quite noisy.

At Proline, we offer one model, the ProV, that is compatible with an inline blower. It comes either as a wall range hood or an insert. The ultra-quiet blower is rated at 1300 CFM and is available for purchase here.
