Hi everyone,

I will be tackling a new project this weekend which is venting a wall mounted range hood. I know that each install is unique to the manufacturer but has anyone done this before?

1. Can you vent this through the wall into a garage at a 90 degree angle at the top or does it need to go through the roof no matter what if you don't want any space to be left between top of chimney stack and ceiling?
2. This product requires a 3 prong outlet behind the chimney but right now I just have my existing wiring to my old under cabinet hood. Do you think I can direct wire?

Product from Home Depot: https://www.homedepot.com/p/AKDY-30...Merch_Ship_Conf_3078558-_-pip_url__W803333909

Best,
Ryan

You need to contact the local building official. Are there any intake air ducts near the exhaust outlet? f so, what is the horizontal distance? Are you going to exhaust the air from the microwave into the garage? Why are you ducting the exhaust air? Even acommercial kitchen do not place a microwave under a hood/duct.
