3) Suction Power of Chimneys:-

The real power of chimney depends on suction power of chimney. According to room size we have to select suction power of chimney. The chimney with high suction power is beneficial always. The capacity of suction is measured in cubic meter.

In India, the sizes of the kitchen are small. If the kitchen breathes 3 meter, length 4 meter and height 4 meter, then the volume of the kitchen is 48 cubic meter. So the suction capacity of the chimney for this kitchen would be 480 cubic meter per hour. Normally, the capacity chimney varies from 400 cubic meters to 1250 cubic meter per hour.

 The section capacity also depends on another factor that is the gap between chimney’s vent and gas stove. The standard level to keep this distance is 24 inch to 30 inch. If you install below this limit then there would some possibility to suck flame also or if you install above this limit then there would possibility of low performance of less suction chimneys.

4) Size of the chimneys:-

The another key point you have take consider before you go for buy chimneys. That is the size of the chimneys. Never a buy a chimney less than the size of the gas stove. Normally two of size of chimney available in market, one is 60cm and another is 90cm wide. Usually, most of people are using 60cm wide size chimney in India.

If you have 2 to 4 burner stove, then go for 60cm wide size chimney. If you have 5 burner stove, then go for 90cm wide size chimney.

5) Ducting chimney Vs Ductless chimney:-

Features Ducting Chimney Ductless Chimney
Cost Higher Less, because the installation cost is less due to non availability of duct.
Filter Mash and Baffle filter Charcoal filter
Performance High Less, due to circulate air back to room
Suction power Higher Less compare to ducting
Portability Difficult to reposition Easy to reposition
Maintenance Difficult to maintain Easy ,Charcoal filter need to change in regular interval

6) Checklist to follow before you buy chimney:-

  1. First check the service is available or not in your area.
  2. Choose the size of chimney according to your gas stove size
  3. Choose the suction capacity of chimney according to your kitchen size.
  4. Select filter type
