GE went out of its way to advise range-hood installers of the best way to install a water heater or a furnace — that is, by following ASHRAE standards. Why didn’t GE bother to tell range-hood installers that ASHRAE also has something to say about the best way to install a range hood?
If your heart is set on a stainless hood, and feel a custom wood range hood would be mutually exclusive, consider the solution shown above! The stainless range hood is complemented by the enclosure overhead, which encases the duct work, resulting in a harmonious and fitting combination.
Moreover, in a house with an atmospherically vented water heater, a 1,200-cfm GE Monogram range hood may cause backdrafting of flue gases, even if the water heater was originally installed in compliance with NFPA and ASHRAE standards. So complying with these standards for water-heater installation won’t keep you out of trouble.
