BEFORE INSTALLING HOOD
1. For the most efficient air flow exhaust, use a straight run or as few elbows as possible. Maximum
duct length is 40 feet, including elbows.
CAUTION:
Vent unit to outside of building only.
2. Two people are necessary for installation.
3. The hood is fitted with Screws and Drywall Anchors suitable for most surfaces. Consult a qualified
installer.
4. Do not use flex ducting.
5. COLD WEATHER installations should have an additional backdraft damper installed to minimize the
back flow of cold air and nonmetallic thermal break to minimize conduction of outside temperatures as part of the ductwork. The damper should be on the cold air side (outside wall) of the
thermal break.
The break should be as close as possible to where the ducting enters the heated portion of the
house.
6. Local building codes may require the installation of a make-up air system. Consult your HVAC
professional for specific requirements in your area.
7. Hood installation height above cooktop is the users preference. Lower installation heights will
improve the efficiency of capturing cooking odors, grease, and smoke. This hood has been
approved for installation heights 30” above the cooktop. Taller people may find a 30” installation
height is inconvenient. DCS recommends an installation height between 30” and 36”.
8. ES30 and ES36 hood models are not recommended to be used over indoor range grills.
9. For installation over DCS Range and Cooktop models RGS-364GL or CS-364GL, the VS1236 model
vent is recommended.
10. Make sure your range or cooktop is level.
TYPICAL INSTALLATION
The hood can be installed using a wall mounting system or suspended under existing cabinetry in the
kitchen. Ducting can be configured for both vertical and horizontal discharge.
If an infrared kit was purchased for installation with the hood, assemble the kit to the hood prior to
installation.
For wall mount instllations, duct cover kits can be purchased as spacers between hood and ceiling.
Duct covers are assembled to unit after the hood is installed.
8
BEFORE INSTALLING HOOD
ELELCTRICAL
Install a 1/2” conduit from the service panel long enough to reach the hood once it is installed.
Branch circuit requirement is 120V, 60Hz, 15A(minimum).
INFRARED LAMP AND PANEL KIT
Optional infrared lamp and panel kit can be ordered separately and mounted into your vent hood.
Models available: IR30, IR36 and IR48. See instructions supplied with kit for assembly to your hood.
WARNING
To avoid any electrical shock the installation of the IR lamp should be done
by a qualified electrician and before starting the installation of the hood.

Use the following formula to calculate installation height:
Installation Height = (Ceiling Height) – (Height Cooktop Surface) – (Hood Height) –
(Duct Cover Height)
(Example: Installation height = 96” – 36”– 18” – 12” = 30”)
Hood Height = 12” for ES30 and ES36 models
18” for VS30, VS36, VS1236 and VS48 models
Duct Cover Height – Duct cover accessories are available in 6” or 12” heights. For taller
ceilings duct covers can be joined together in any combination.
1. Hood Installation Height
After the hood installation height has been determined, draw a horizontal line at a distance above
the cooktop equal to the desired hood installation height plus dimension “E” (see Table on
Figure 4).
This line is the mounting location of the wooden bracket shipped with the hood.
2. Find the centerline of the cooktop. Draw a vertical line along this centerline up to the horizontal line
drawn in step 1.
3. The hood is mounted to the wall using a wooden bracket shipped with the hood. Remove the
bracket from the hood by removing two shipping screws. Mark the centerline of the bracket.

INSTALLATION
4. Find studs behind the drywall by tapping the wall or using a stud finder. Locate one stud on either
side of the cooktop centerline to use for mounting the wooden bracket as shown in Figure 4.
5. Align the top of the wood bracket along the horizontal line drawn in step 1. Align the centerlines
of the bracket and cooktop.
6. Drill a 3” deep 1/8” hole through the wooden bracket, drywall and into the stud.
7. Use 2 to 4, 1/4” x 3” flat head wood screws to attach the bracket to the wall as shown in Figure 4.
For support of longer hoods, use three or four studs as available. Countersink the heads to prevent
interference with the hood.
8. On the wood bracket, mark the locations used to hang the hood according to Figure 5 and its Table.
