Considerations before installing Hood

1.For the most efficient air flow exhaust, use a straight run or as few elbows as possible.

CAUTION: Vent unit to outside of building, only.

2.If allowed in your area, use metallic flex ducting only to connect rigid duct directly to transitions.

3.COLD WEATHER installations should have an additional backdraft damper installed to minimize backward cold air flow and a nonmetallic thermal break to minimize conduction of outside temperatures as part of the ductwork. The damper should be on the cold air side of the thermal break. The break should be as close as possible to where the ducting enters the heated portion of the house.

4.Hood installation height above cooktop is the users preference P (see Figure 2). The lower the hood above the cooktop, the more efficient the capturing of cooking odors, grease and smoke. Be sure that your hood model fits your installation.

Pre-Installations Calculations (see Figure 2)

1.a) Select a hood preference height P (see Figure 2) that is comfortable for the user. (30” - 36” recommended, 24” - 36” allowed).

b)Calculate Hood height your installation H (see Figure 2). H = K-C-P.

c)Confirm that H is within the range of min to max H found for your hood. If not adjust your installation.

d)Calculate Chimney structure height S (use formulas in Figure 2, and check dimensions of your hood). Save this calculation for use later in the installation.

Preparation of Mounting Surface - Installing supports above ceiling drywall.

Note: Take into consideration the hood depth; your hood could be much deeper than the cooktop.

2.Mark center lines of cooktop or range on ceiling above. Use centerlines marked on ceiling to position the mounting template. Note location of hood front, side, and mounting holes indicated on template.

3.Remove and save template. Cut and remove ceiling drywall. Install suitable length 2" x 4" lumber between joists to provide chimney mounting points as shown in Fig. C and D. Use template for dimensions and required clearance.

Make sure to affix the added lumber firmly and level. Consult a professional if you have difficulties or your installation is unique. Consult template and Figures 3. 4. 5.

Note the weight of the appliance. (see Table1).

4.Install exhaust duct (see Table 1 for size). Female end shall be 4-1/2"below finished ceiling and securely fastened to joists. Do not use duct smaller than the transition.

5.Install 1/2" electrical conduit in location marked on template and extend length S from ceiling.

6. Install drywall around duct and conduit; then refinish ceiling.
