A 3-ton heat pump has approximately **1200 CFM** of air flow. via

## How many CFM should a house have?

We use a general formula of either **2, 2.5, or 3 CFM**, or “Cubic Feet per Minute”, per square foot of living space. 2 CFM would provide a good system, 2.5 CFM would provide a better system, and 3 CFM would provide the best system. via

## How do you calculate CFM for a blower?

Start with the total volume of air (in cubic **feet), divide by the exchange rate (how** quickly you want to replace the air), and the result is the total CFM you need for your system. Keep in mind that many applications (especially large areas) use more than one fan/blower. via

## How many CFM is a ton of return?

**350 to 400 CFM per ton** of cooling is required for proper air conditioning system operation. For example, if you are checking a 3 ton system, the airflow required is between 1050 and 1200 CFM. via

## How many CFM should a range hood have?

Wall-mounted & Under-cabinet range hoods – **100 CFM for every linear foot of cooktop**. Most common types of cooktops measure 30 inches wide, or 2.5'. To meet the recommended CFM requirements, you'll need a range hood with 250 CFM. Island hoods – 150 CFM for every linear foot of cooktop. via

## How many CFM do I need?

CFM is how many cubic feet of air the range hood exhausts every minute at full speed. Simply put, the higher the CFM, the more air the hood vents out of your kitchen. To power your range hood, you need **at least 100 CFM for every 10,000 BTUs of your stovetop**. via

## How many CFM is a 2-ton unit?

For optimum performance, most manufacturers recommend that 400 cfm per ton of air conditioning should be used. For example, a 2-ton system should have **800 cfm** of air moving through the evaporator coil. via

## How do you calculate duct size?

To calculate the required equipment size, **divide the HVAC load for the entire building by 12,000**. One ton equals 12,000 BTUs, so if a house or office needs 24,000 BTUs, it will take a 2-ton HVAC unit. via

## How big of a return air do I need?

In order to determine the size of the tonnage you have, simply **divide 980 by 400 CFM per ton**. Doing this for this space will yield a tonnage of 2.45. Always round up and we have a tonnage value of 2.5. A return air grill should be sized for an air speed of 300-500 FPM(feet per minute). via

## Is it better to have a higher CFM?

A **higher CFM is always better for your kitchen fan**. You can always run a high CFM hood on lower settings. It provides great ventilation by moving a heavy amount of air per minute. via

## DOES CFM matter for fans?

The larger the space, **the higher the fan CFM must be in** order to efficiently cool a room. CFM for fans is a critical measurement for determining if a room can be cooled. If the CFM is too low, the room will be unable to be cooled and undermine any energy efficiency of the fan. via

## Is 200 CFM a lot?

Generally, electric leaf blowers have a CFM falling somewhere from just **under 200 to 400**. If your property is an acre or more, you will probably want a leaf blower with a CFM between 400 to 700. These machines are noisier and obviously more powerful with the ability to handle both wet and dry debris. via
