As far as I can tell, a range hood can't be installed where my stove is located because the wall behind it (apparently the chimney stack) juts out about 3", and measures only 16-7/8" wide, while the stove is 30", so I don't see a method for physically attaching it (I don't know if I should cut screw holes into the chimney stack). I suppose I could run the venting (from a range hood) up the wall into the attic, but that would be so "out there", visually. There are no cabinets. Moving the stove left or right to get against a flat wall isn't feasible in my case either.
This is a duplex house with a concrete wall between the two apartments, and, of course, the stove sits against that wall
I would think that the Nutone 8310, if its CFM is high enough, should work to take out smoke if it's directly over the stove?? Again, I'm not concerned with catching grease at this point.
What do you think?
