Considerations
before
installing
Hood
1 Grease filters are not mounted and are located inside the package with the hood
Be sure to get them before disposing of your package.
2 For the most efficient air flow exhaust, use a straight run or as few elbows as
possible
CAUTION: Vent unit to outside of building, only.
3 If allowed in yourarea, use metallicfiexducting onlyto connect rigid duct directly
to transitions.
4 COLD WEATHER installations should have an additional backdraft damper
installed to minimize backward cold air flow and a nonmetallic thermal break to
minimize conduction of outside temperatures as part of the ductwork The
damper should be on the cold air side of the thermal break The break should be
as close as possible to where the ducting enters the heated portion of the house
5 Hood installation height above cooktop isthe users preference. The lower the
hood above the cooktop, the more efficient the capturing of cooking odors, grease
and smoke We recommend the hood be installed 30-36" above the countertop
The lower height may be inconvenient for tall people and large cooking vessels
Check you r ceiling height and the hood height maxim um before you select your
hood.
