One of the most dramatic ways to make a statement in your kitchen is to include a custom designed range hood. Whether you adorn it with beautiful corbels and turned spindles and storage options or other embellishments, or keep it simple and classic, you will create a wonderful focal point for the room. Let’s take a look at a range (no pun intended!) of styles, colors and customization.
Broan recommends installing an outdoor air duct connected to a grille mounted on the kitchen wall or connected directly to the return plenum of your furnace; the motorized damper is installed in the duct. One 8-inch-diameter duct works for a range hood rated up to 1,000 cfm. If your range hood is bigger than that, you’ll need two ducts.
Here’s the new IRC provision, which is found in section M1503.4: “Exhaust hood systems capable of exhausting in excess of 400 cfm shall be provided with makeup air at a rate approximately equal to the exhaust air rate. Such makeup air systems shall be equipped with a means of closure and shall be automatically controlled to start and operate simultaneously with the exhaust system.
