I guess your saying it should go through the roof, not the soffit.

"My range hood is vented to the soffit on my roof eave, is this acceptable?" --------- Possibly....

Needs to terminate outside, 3' minimum away from any openings into house (doors, windows, air supply, etc.) and property line. Requires a backdraft damper, very hard to do in a soffit application.

A good idea? NO- the soffit intake vents will bring the greasy/moist air into the attic to settle on the insulation. Check with your LOCAL B.D.

While it may be "fine", it certainly isnt the way I'd do it in my house or my customers houses. Its not just the grease but the humidity from the pot of pasta you're boiling.

In most cases I would opt to go thru the side of the house. The problem here is the need for a soffit to hide the ductwork.

Rooftop vents are reasonably priced and can be installed in less than an hour.
