Installing Exhaust For Your Kitchen
An exhaust for a kitchen helps draw out the air inside towards outside. It is usually placed on the top of the stoves or sometimes inside the range hood. Installing might be hard, but if you follow the manufacturer instruction carefully, you will eventually succeed. Here is some helpful information in installing exhaust systems for your kitchen.
• To ensure safety, you need to turn off all the power sources in area where you are working.
• Use a proper drill (usually a 3/8 spade bit) to make holes in the ceiling where you like to put the exhaust. Measure the size of the exhaust intake port and make it as your reference in making a hole in the ceiling.
• Above the ceiling, connect a duct elbow to the fan’s housing side, and tape it using foil duct tape. Then attach the connector cable that comes with the exhaust when you purchase it. Then put the vent fan into the hole you have made in the ceiling. Metal brackets are extended to make contact with the nearest joist. Stabilize them in place using screws.
• After attaching the exhaust in the ceiling, now you need to make a hole where the exhaust fans could vent the air outside. Choose the place on the wall of the attic that is near the exhaust. If you are satisfied with the location of air exit, bore a hole on the wall using hole saw.
• In the attic, connect the connector duct to a wall cap (using foil duct tape). Slide it to the hole you made in the wall. Use rubber gasket and an adhesive made of silicone then screw to the siding of the house. Attach the ducts to the wall cap using foil duct tape.
• Go back to the kitchen and connect the proper wirings that are connected to the fan. Turn the power on to test your fan.
You can also get fans for kitchen hoods and install these, but they are not as effective as fully ducting the air out of the room itself - which is what a commercial system achieves.
