Suggestions on venting existing range hood blower


I wanted to upgrade my existing range fan, as it is loud and doesnt do much. I was surprised to discover it was only vented into the cabinet.

So now I can vent out the wall?

Does your cabinet go all the way to the ceiling? If it does, I'd run it up through the ceiling and either out the roof or turn in the attic and bring it out to the soffit.

It does not go to the ceiling. And there is another floor above the kitchen.

Through the cabinet, through the wall.
