Planning the Installation
System Layout
The electric outlet for the raised vent should be
installed only by a licensed electrician.
Electrical Specifications
The raised vent is supplied with a 28” (711 mm) power
cord terminated by a three-prong plug. Plug it directly into a
dedicated, grounded, three prong, electrical outlet. Do not
use an extension cord.
The correct voltage, frequency and amperage must be supplied to the electrical outlet from a grounded, single phase
circuit that is protected by a properly sized circuit breaker
or time-delay fuse.
Electrical Supply Requirements
A 3 prong electrical outlet connected to a 120 Vac, 60
Hz, 15 Amp. grounded, dedicated circuit is required.
The customer must supply conduit with minimum
current carrying capacity of 8 Amps to supply power
to the remote blower from the raised vent. See
Planning the Duct Work for further details.
The above specifications are for reference only. If the
power supply requirements shown above do not agree
with those listed on the appliance data label, use the
required voltage, frequency and amperage ratings on
the appliance data label.
It is the owner’s responsibility to ensure that electrical
outlet is installed by a licensed electrician. The electrical installation must comply with the latest revision of
the National Electric Code ANSI/NFPA 70 (latest revision) and local codes and ordinances.
If the electrical service provided does not meet the
product specification, or does not conform to the NEC
or local standards, do not proceed with the installation.
Call a licensed electrician to correct the electrical service before proceeding.
Locate the electrical outlet in an accessible location,
so that the power plug can be disconnected for service
without removing the raised vent or the range from the
The vent system consists of the raised vent itself and a
remote blower. You must install a Dacor model REMP3
or REMP16 remote blower for the raised vent to operate properly. For directions on installing the remote
blower, see the REMP3/16 installation instructions.
Failure to install a remote blower or proper duct
work may result in a back draft and/or the insufficient
venting of smoke and fumes.
To reduce the risk of personal injury caused by
reaching over a hot appliance, cabinet storage
space located directly above the range should be
Do not store combustible materials or items adversely affected by heat in cabinet areas above the appliance.
Follow the instructions and diagrams for minimum
safe clearances and installation location. Failure to
do so may result in a fire or safety hazard.
Wire the remote blower to turn on when the raised vent
is turned on by running a piece of conduit parallel to
the duct work and connecting it to the raised vent on
one end and the remote blower on the other. There are
7/8” access holes in the bottom and side of the raised
vent for connecting the conduit.

Planning the Duct Work
To reduce the risk of fire and to properly exhaust air,
be sure to duct air outside the house or building. Do
not vent exhaust air into spaces within walls or ceilings or into attics, crawl spaces or garages.
Tape all duct joints securely to prevent combustion by-products, smoke or odors from entering the
home. Doing so will also improve system efficiency.
Do not exhaust more than one vent into a single
duct run.
For proper operation this unit must be installed with
a remote blower. Use only Dacor models REMP3 or
Use only duct work constructed of materials deemed
acceptable by state, municipal and local codes
DO NOT install an additional in-line or external blower to increase the length of the duct run. Even small
differences between blower air flow rates can greatly
reduce the air draw by the hood.

When connecting the duct work to the back of the unit,
the customer must supply a 3 ¼” X 10” rectangular
transition to make the connection.
For side and bottom exhaust connections, use the supplied ATD2 transition to connect the duct work to the
unit. It transitions between the narrow exhaust outlet on
the unit and a 3 ¼” X 10” rectangular duct connection.
On bottom exhaust installations cut a hole in the floor
to allow the transition and/or duct work to pass through
the floor.
On side exhaust installations, allow five inches of space
on the side for the ADT2 exhaust transition plus additional space for the duct attached to it (X).
The ERV raised vent can be configured to exhaust
through the back, the bottom or either side.

All duct work materials (including screws and duct tape)
must be purchased separately by the customer.
When planning new duct work, always look for the
shortest, most direct route to the outside.
You can increase the duct size over the duct run if
desired. To prevent a back draft, never decrease the
duct size over the run.
Do not rely on duct tape alone to seal duct joints.
Fasten all connections with sheet metal screws and
tape all joints with certified silver tape or duct tape.
Use sheet metal screws as require to support the duct
To prevent back-drafts, a damper at the duct outlet may
also be required.
Make sure duct work does not interfere with floor joists
or wall studs.
With concrete slab construction, “box-in” the duct work
to prevent it from collapsing when the wet concrete is
poured. Also allow room for electrical conduit from the
remote blower.
Cross-drafts or air currents caused by adjacent open
windows or doors, heating/air conditioning outlets, ceiling fans and recessed ceiling lights reduce vent efficiency.
Installation Specifications
Duct Work Design Tips
Wherever possible, reduce the number of transitions
and turns to as few sharp angles as possible. Two
staggered 45° angles are better than one 90°. Keep
turns as far away from the hood exhaust as possible,
with as much space between each bend as possible.
For best performance, use round duct instead of rectangular, especially when elbows are required.
If multiple elbows are used, try to keep a minimum of
24” of straight duct between them. Avoid “S” or “back to
back” configurations of adjacent elbows.
In regions where the weather gets extremely cold,
thermal breaks, such as a short section of non-metallic
duct, should be used to avoid indoor heat loss. The
break should be located as close to the pass through
point to the outside as possible.
Do not use flexible metal duct.
Calculating the Maximum Duct Run Length
Do not use duct work that is smaller in cross-sectional
area than the required duct sizes in the table to the
For best performance, keep the duct run as short
as possible and never exceed the maximums stated
The maximum straight duct length for the raised vent
system depends on the model of remote blower used
with vent system and the number of elbows and transitions used. The equivalent number of feet for each
elbow and transition must be subtracted from the maximum straight length to compensate for wind resistance
To determine the maximum allowable length of the duct
work, subtract all of the equivalent lengths of the elbows
and transitions listed below from appropriate Maximum
Equivalent Straight Lengths.
For example, for a raised vent system using 10 inch
duct, a REMP3 remote blower and three (3) 90° elbows:
From the Maximum Equivalent Straight Lengths table,
the maximum length without transitions and elbows is
40 feet.
The total equivalent length of the three (3) 90° 10 inch
elbows is
3 X 5 feet = 15 feet.
The maximum amount of straight duct that can be used
with a REMP3 and the elbows is: 40 feet - 6 feet = 34
