So where does a powerful range-hood fan get its makeup air? If the house doesn’t have enough random air leaks around windows, doors, and mudsills, the makeup air is often pulled backwards through water-heater flues or down wood-burning chimneys — a phenomenon called backdrafting. Since the flue gases of some combustion appliances can include carbon monoxide, backdrafting is dangerous. In some cases, it can be life-threatening.
Lastly, think about inexpensive ways to improve the style of your kitchen windows by doing a DIY project for a fresh and modern way to make your windows standout. Something simple such as changing the color of the trim from simply a basic color can really highlight the window in a beautiful way. Instantly, it changes the frame through which you see your garden or patio-making it a priceless improvement in more ways than one.
Concerning the reference to NFPA standards, I tried to pin down what GE was hinting at. I contacted Allan Fraser, a senior building specialist with NFPA. After hearing me read the relevant paragraph from the GE instruction booklet, Fraser said, “That is a bad reference. As far as makeup air for range hoods is concerned, NFPA doesn’t cover it. Frankly, it is not an issue on our radar screen.”
