Darchelle Meunier Range Hood February 01, 2019 09:37:05
In this case, you buy a hood that you can duct to the outside to completely get rid of the irritants. You can choose to buy a hood that mounts on the exterior wall or the interior wall (island). In the former case, the exhaust ducts will be shorter. In the latter case, the ducts will have to be longer in order to relay the irritants to the outside. With a longer duct, the hood must also be powerful enough to force the air out. The duct system must install correctly for it to work efficiently and to boost the performance of the hood in general. Keep in mind that the hood must not be ducted to a basement or an attic. You must read the installation instructions well to know how the hood will duct. Seek the services of a professional if you are not sure how to go about this.
The unit is extremely easy to install. Besides being 4-way convertible, it is one of the most versatile hood ranges you can ever buy. Conversion is easy. Simply remove the cover plate from the front side of the hood and install the non-ducted filter (the filter is sold separately). The minimum height above the cook-top necessary for installation is 18 inches.
