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?
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.
Another important question is “How do I treat odd shaped windows”? Some ideas that can help you decide are floor-length curtain panels for large bay windows or french doors. Also, valances and cornices are in a way accent marks over windows you want to bring attention to. Asymmetrical design in wood or fabric have the ability to offer a modern design to your kitchen.
