What ducting is available for this?


I'm installing a new range hood and I'm trying to figure out what duct items will get me from my 10" hood to my 6" outlet that will in be about 10" of room.

The hood is currently installed rather low, and I'd like to raise it up about 6" from it's current location.

My local store doesn't have anything off the shelf that gets me from here to there in such a small distance. I know I need a 10 to 6 reducer, and something to accommodate the offset of the two.

many thanks for any guidance.

There is nothing that's going to work with that much offset.
Need to redo the pipe some how coming out of the ceiling so it lines up with the vent in both directions.
Looks like that hood is sitting crooked.
How do you plan on covering all that up with the crown moulding in the way?
No Cabinet above the vent?

Well,

1) Can't redo the pipe in the ceiling very much. I can go sideways to cover the 2" or so, but the front/back direction is blocked by a joist.

2) The hood is not crooked, just an optical illusion in the pic with the plastic covering and such.

3) The hood comes with a 3-sided 2-piece matching-stainless cover that extends up/down to fit the size height.

4) There is no cabinet above the vent.

I'm going to make this work. I just don't yet know how. Still searching...

Good idea. That is the route I'm looking at now.

I would look into changing/cutting the part attached to the vent itself so that it's a 6 inch circular vent on top and a rectangular vent on bottom to attach to the vent. Then it will attach cleanly to a 6 inch straight duct up to the in ceiling duct.

Maybe add a fake cabinet with matching holes then sealed.
Maybe a square box with matching holes then sealed.
Make the box so the face is removable.
Would the cover, cover the box.?

Just for future reference, home made reducing connectors are possible. 24" aluminum rolled into a cone (or a offset cone) and approximating the opening sizes. Tab sizes can be taken into account or straight lip added later. Hold it together with screws and foil tape.
