Rangehoods

Question: What's the optimum distance between rangehoods and gas or electric hobs?

If your cooktop is electric, the Australian Standards require a minimum of 600mm free space from the cooktop to the rangehood. If your cooktop is gas,  the Australian Standards require a minimum of 650mm free space from the top of the trivet to the rangehood. Please be sure to use a licensed plumber or gas-fitter for correct installation and adherence to the appropriate building codes and standards which vary in each State of Australia. Failure to comply with regulations and faulty installation, may effect your warranty.
