Important rules extraction installation

Hoods needed in kitchens and the electrical and gas stoves. Being imparted to install them in the second case is slightly different. After all, when using a gas stove cooking is influenced by the open fire. This feature is necessary to consider before installation.

In the process of cooking on a gas stove cooking odors not only fill the air - the kitchen smell is distinctly felt burning gas. It is he who brings confusion in the question of the correctness of the choice of optimal distance for future extraction.

Therefore, before purchasing the exhaust equipment for kitchen should be calculate its powerSo as not to have to change the technique almost immediately after installation.

So, sometimes you can hear the erroneous advice of some craftsmen hang this device below at a distance of 50-60 cm from the plate level. According to them, this will remove carbon monoxide from the room better and faster.

Above the gas stove hood is required to set

Above the gas stove is required to set one of the most suitable models extracts to get rid of smoke, soot and other impurities in the air

Such advisers forget that open flames can easily spill over to the housing exhaust equipment and then trouble is inevitable. Especially dangerous may be a situation where the grease filters have already dirty - they can ignite in seconds.

To this did not happen, we must remember, how high hang on a gas stove hood. The allowable range is between 75-85 cm. And, as advised by experienced craftsmen, in some cases the error of 5 cm when a different hood does not fit.

Distance to extract from the appliance

For gas cookers distance before stretching should be greater than that provided for electric. But, in any case, no less!

In addition to the distance from the plate to the hood there are other important installation guidelines, including:

  • Proper installation of the equipment;
  • a secure connection to the mains;
  • proper connection to the ventilation system.

To evacuation system for many years worked properly, in a timely manner to help get rid of the symbiosis of different flavors, it has to establish clearly adhering to the basic rules of installation. Installing it, you can do by yourself or invite a master of the company with a good reputation.

Another important rule that affects the quality of the installation and future indoor climate - Compliance with the equipment manufacturer's recommendations. First of all be careful to read the tips on installation height of the acquired drawing model, given by the company, its to make.

Then you need to consider the recommendations of the manufacturer of gas stove in the relevant section. The instructions should be given special attention to the advice of the height placement of the drafting system.

Height of product installation

Height of product installation will depend largely on the type of equipment and its power

Often, you can face the fact that the recommendations to one, and the second device are quite different. Manufacturers extracts may indicate the height of the installation of the equipment in the 40-50 cm from the plate. In this case, you need to focus only on the distance specified in the instructions to the plate.

If the accompanying documentation to the gas stove was lost, the hood above it can be hung from a distance of not less than 75 cm.

Step by step drawing installation on a gas stove

With the installation and connection of the hood is quite possible to cope on their own. For this is useful to a simple set of tools: a drill or screwdriver, hacksaw, screwdriver, pencil, level, tape measure. You will also need a basic understanding of installing exhaust equipment in a residential area.

Preparation for installation work

To install the hood proceed after the equipment itself has already acquired. The first step is to read the instructions in the hood and a gas stove, paying special attention to the height of the upcoming installation.

Cooker hood Island type

When placing furniture and appliances in the kitchen should provide the least a short way from the drawing to the vent - the longer it is, the lower the efficiency of the device

In the second type of extracts used fat and carbon filters - the first fat is removed, and the second filtered air masses, relieving them of soot, soot, water and other particulate impurities, giving unpleasant smell.

The third type of equipment also has two kinds of filters, and is equipped with a duct which is not present in coal extracts. This structure operates in a mode of removal of air and its purification mode without deleting.

For coal extracts does not need air duct

For coal extracts does not need duct - these devices do not evacuate the air masses from the room. They are cleaned and then returned to the room

After connection to the air ducts you can wear a decorative cover to the duct. Many hoods are equipped with a beautiful dome-type cover plate designed to conceal the ventilation pipe going into the ventilation.

Connection to the mains Equipment

When the main mounting operation performed to connect the left hood positioned above a gas cooker, to the mains. Regardless of the type and mode of operation all hoods require power. Without this, the exhaust fan just will not start.

To connect to the network can be 2 options:

  • inclusion in the socket;
  • connection directly.

The first option is the most simple and convenient. If there is a free outlet, while the drawing already has a cable with a plug at the end - that it be convenient to hide in the cable channel, reaching to the wall outlet.

the kitchen outlet should be earthed

the kitchen socket must be earthed. This is worth remembering when you connect not only extraction, but also other electric kitchen appliances

But the act of the first embodiment is not always possible - often free outlet for exhaust just not enough. Some models too short cable with a plug, which does not make it to the correct sockets. Therefore it is necessary to connect directly.

After such contact is necessary to isolate the compound. Also, be sure to check if the current to the exhaust housing is not.

Check the correct connection of the screwdriver

To verify the connection wires hood with power cable directly, you can use an inverter screwdriver. If the lamp lights up, then it makes a mistake and the unit can strike shock

After connecting left turn on the power and test the functionality of the exhaust equipment. It's simple - enough to include any drawing speed and attach a piece of paper.

Therefore, in this kitchen hood for the time being will fulfill a decorative role. As soon as the hostess will be there, enthusiastically vayayuschaya culinary delights to be buying a new one or reinstall the low-hanging hood.

The second error during installation - narrow width of the equipment. It should be remembered that for the normal operation of the hood width must be the same as that of the plate.

drawing minimum width the width of the plate itself

Experts recommend buying plan drawing only after the acquisition of the gas stove. So it will be able to choose the optimum width and height model

The third mistake is more about design - it will not affect the operation of the equipment. This is about hoods with ductsConnecting the device with a ventilation shaft - in the areas of open space, it is desirable to mount the plastic. This will allow visually to give a more refined appearance communications.

For ducts that are hidden under the decorative cover, plasterboard box or in the false ceiling can be used corrugation.

If the hood is included in the socket, it is important that elektrotochka has been removed from the gas plate at a distance of 60 cm. Compliance with the rules and safety regulations will protect against accidental ignition wiring.

White plastic airbox

Neat white plastic ventilation ducts is not evident in the kitchen. If desired, one can choose the color to match the trim or paint tube walls in the desired shade

All errors can be avoided if a responsible attitude to every stage of installation. Proper installation and connection drawing execution over a gas hob with each step closer to the perfect result. Qualitatively, the installed equipment will delight any owner and will last much longer its service life.
