The kitchen is the room in the house that should benefit from the best ventilation, subject by definition to fumes, vapors, greases ... and risks of rejection of carbon monoxide if gas has its place.

Gas obligations

Choosing the ventilation of a kitchen depends primarily on its ... ventilation. A kitchen with several windows will logically require less equipment. But ventilation also depends on the type of stove installed and whether or not there is a gas water heater. Question ventilation, it is, indeed, more standards than choice. Bottled gas involves low ventilation (leading to the outside) and high ventilation (coming from the outside); town gas, high ventilation. In all cases, if there is no opening to the open air, it is compulsory to install a exhaust air exhaust system leading to the outside.

Indispensable hood

If these conditions are met or if the kitchen is fully electric, choosing the ventilation depends on the use made of the room. The most efficient system for ventilating it well, outside windows, remains the extractor hood, which can either be connected to an external ventilation duct, or operate by recirculating the air.

The VMC supplement

As for VMC, or controlled mechanical ventilation, it is simply compulsory in new housing. It also ideally complements the hood, which does not operate continuously. In a kitchen, avoid self-adjusting single-flow CMV, which has no effect on humidity. On the other hand, a hydroregulable single-flow VMC may suffice, unless one wishes to invest in a double-flow VMC, the cost of which all the same varies between € 2,000 for a new construction and € 4,000 in the context of a renovation.
