Kitchen Exhaust Fan Buying Guide for Indian 2024
  1. Don’t get confused with the sizing of exhaust fans: If the size of an exhaust fan is mentioned 10 inches let's say, then it usually refers to the diameter of the blades of the fan (not the entire frame body). Now ideally this 10 inches of size should match the ventilation hole size where you wish to fit the exhaust fan (additionally it's better to keep 0.5 to 1 inch extra space). Take the help of your electrician or furniture maker.


2. Calculate the CMH of your kitchen: Every exhaust fan has a CMH (Cubic Meters Per Hour). This value refers to the volume of air a fan moves per hour. The more CMH, the better. Calculate it using the formula (L x W x H) of your kitchen (in feet), multiply the value you get by the number of air changes per hour (usually 8-12) and divide this number by 60 (since 1 hour contains 60 minutes). Example: (10 ft x 12 ft x 8 ft) size of the room x 12 air changes =11520 divided by 60 (minutes) = 192 CMH. 


3. Check power consumption: Go for kitchen exhaust fans with low power consumption. Generally, metal exhaust fans with high RPM have higher power consumption. BLDC exhaust fans can be a good choice.


4. Sweep size: This refers to the size of the diameters of the blades of the fan (when they rotate). The larger the sweep size, the more air the fan can throw or suction.


    5. RPM: This refers to the rotation per minute of the blades of the fan. The more RPM, the faster the blades move, and the more air is thrown.


      6. Check warranty & other features: There has to be a minimum warranty of 2 years. Also, be sure to check for features like a shutter back that closes when the fan is turned off (to avoid insects from entering in)

        Best Kitchen Exhaust Fan in India under ₹1000 (Overall)

        The overall best kitchen exhaust fan under 1000 rupees in India currently is the Luminous Vento which comes with a 230mm sweep size and a high speed of 1350 RPM along with a 750 CMH rating (probably the highest in this budget category). If you have a small kitchen, say 8 x 8 x 9 feet, this metal exhaust fan by Luminous under Rs.1000 is worth considering. However, it also has a few cons which you should know before buying. Being a metal exhaust fan, there are no shutters or back flaps to avoid the entry of small insects or dust particles when the fan is off. Also, the fan does make some noise. But honestly, at this price, it offers a great performance too.



        High speed (1350 RPM)

        Makes some noise

        Highest CMH (750) in this budget list (more airflow)

        No shutter on back

        Larger sweep size means more air circulation

        High power consumption (40W)

        Best Exhaust Fan for Kitchen with Less Power Consumption

        Next up on our list of the best exhaust fans for Indian cooking kitchens, we have the Crompton Brisk Air Neo which is the lowest power-consuming exhaust fan on this list under 1000 rupees. You also get a shutter back that opens automatically when the fan is turned on and closes once the fan is off. Moreover, the brand has not compromised in terms of the fan speed. You get a good speed of 1350 RPM with 460 CMH airflow, sufficient for a small kitchen of let's say 60 sq. ft to 100 sq. ft. What’s great is that it also makes less noise comparatively.



        Low power consumption (27W)

        Only suitable for small kitchen areas (60 sq. ft to 100 sq. ft)

        Shutter back

        The wrong RPM mentioned on the Amazon listing (2370) (feels misleading)

        Bigger airflow of 550 CMH

        1300 RPM is a decent speed for a small kitchen exhaust fan

        Slightly high power consumption of 40W
