    Look in the ASHRAE handbook of fundamentals, they will give heat gains you can expect from the appliances, when they are vented by a hood or not.

    Not a lot of gain from the appliances under the hood as it is getting exhausted, the make up air is a big load.

    I always have the NEC in my mind when looking at other appliances. The electrically powered ones can be derated to 65% of the name plate according to the NEC when there are 6 or more appliances, this is conservative. Items like the refrigertors, freezers, refrigerated work tops etc.

    There is an email in my profile, if you got some drawings etc, I am doing a couple kitchens right now, could take a look at what you have if you wanted.
    The way we build has a greater impact on our comfort, energy consumption and IAQ than any HVAC system we install.
