- by about 10% for wall and island models;
- by 20-30% for ceiling models.

65-75 cm for wall and island hoods. Maximum 150 cm for ceiling hoods.

07- Do pipes and junctions come with the hood?

No, you should order them separately, choosing the ones which are more suitable to your installing solution.

08- Is condensation greater with induction or gas hobs?

With induction hobs, because they just warm the pot and not the sorrounding area, causing an increase of condensation.

09- How can I avoid condensation?

- Choose the right hood (dimension and power).
- Select the maximum suction speed.
- Turn on the hood before start cooking and program a late turn off.
- If you can, open the window.
- Use the lid pot.
- Don't use an excessive induction hob power.

The best solution is a worktop or ceiling model. If you want a wall or island hood, do not choose perimetral suction. It's better a model with filters in view, bigger than the hob and positioned higher than the standard (160 cm from the floor).
