Since most residential kitchens are adequately served by a 150-cfm or 250-cfm range hood, it comes as no surprise that a 1,200-cfm range hood can cause depressurization and backdrafting problems. However, the homeowner’s claim that GE had never heard of such problems needed to be verified, so I set out to discover whether GE’s experts are really as clueless as Morris alleged.
If your range hood cover itself is simply boring, make a statement with a stylish cover. If you’re a novice woodworker, but you want to spruce up your range hood, add corbels. This old French word simply means a fixture coming out from a wall to support a structure above it. In this instance, the corbels function strictly as a decorative accent piece since your hood cover is already mounted in place. You can buy pre-made corbels or you can handcraft and install your own design and mount them under your range hood cover.
If you prefer to install a passive makeup air duct rather than a powered makeup air unit, the duct must include a motorized damper that is wired to come on simultaneously with the range-hood fan. Broan sells motorized dampers for this purpose, and also provides detailed and useful installation instructions.
