Can you convert Downdraft cooktop to vented hood?
We are doing a kitchen renovation and have a GE Monogram 6 burner gas cooktop. It still works fine and is not in the budget to replace. We are remodeling the cabinets over it and I would LOVE a hood. Both for aesthetic reasons and function. Since we are already vented to the outside below the cooktop, can we add a hood vent and tie it into the existing vent? We are pulling down the backsplash so the wall could be opened to pipe into the existing vent. Could such a thing work?
