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.
Range hoods have at least one thing in common with combustion appliances: they also require makeup air, although the GE instructions fail to note that fact. So why do the instructions refer to the need for providing makeup air for furnaces and water heaters — but fail to inform installers that range-hood fans also need a source of makeup air?
In the 19th century, “glass curtains” were sheers used next to the glass in layered treatments, and by themselves in service rooms. Near-sheer fabrics include lace, an easy way to add subtle pattern and class to plain windows. Dan Cooper of Cooper Lace suggests hanging panels from an inexpensive tension rod—a white one virtually disappears when tucked inside the lace.
