Selecting a new rangehood can be a challenging process for you and your clients. The aesthetics of a kitchen, the cooking styles of the homeowner (and their cooktop preferences), the height of the ceilings and proportions of the space will all play a part in the decision-making. A good understanding of the practical and legislative requirements associated with these appliances is essential, too, and will help you guide your clients towards a solution with optimum air extraction capabilities and minimum health and safety implications.

(Note: establishing a strong relationship with a knowledgeable, up-to-date appliance retailer is highly recommended. A proactive sales representative will be well-informed of the pros and cons of a broad range of appliances, and be an asset to you and your clients.)

In this Member-only technical bulletin, we’re setting out the two primary types of extraction used in domestic kitchens, and summarising the relevant legislation applicable to Australian dwellings.
