Adapting 6" duct to 8" flex duct?


We are getting a stove fan with a 6" exit duct. Our house has a larger flex duct installed over the stove, leading to the roof. It is probably 8 or 10". Is it feasible to adapt a 6" hard duct to a much larger flex duct?

Thanks

is flex duct legal to use for a range hood???? I dont think it is... plus cleaning the grease from it would be a nightmare.....

you might want to check your local building codes.
