Put ur hand there and assess it using your powerful senses implanted into your arms , commonly referred to as senses. Using these figure out if it strong enough for you.
Use paper tissues or loo paper to check there is extraction. If the extractor can't hold the paper against the grill unaided, it isn't extracting

Put a pan of boiling water on to check if steam goes into the hood or around it. Take the filter out and see what difference it makes to the amount of steam being extracted

frequent causes of non extraction include
> greasy filter in the hood (usually the problem)
> long extractor pipe runs
> abrupt major (90 degree) bends in the pipe run
> pipe diameter that is less than the fan requires
> a cowl or extractor cover outside the house that blocks airflow (usually a problem)
