Many factors are considered when pricing a fume hood. Prices differ greatly depending on the dimensions of the hood, special features, and add-ons. A fume hood that is made for work that may result in explosions will be priced much higher than one intended for spill containment. According to industry professionals, the “rule of thumb” is anywhere from $1,200 to $2,500 per linear foot. This means the cost of a 6 foot fume hood could fall anywhere from $7,200 to $15,000.
