Question on recirculation venting
Not sure if this is the right place to post this or not, but I'll start with it here.
My wife and I are considering a 36" Bluestar range top (as posted in another thread). We live in a townhome and currently have a GE range with a microwave above that vents. We are not sure if it is vented to the outside or recirc.
But we know that with the BS we will need way more venting, and want to do it. We, however, are not sure if the townhome HOA (home owners association) will allow us to vent to the outside if we are not already. I am going to check with them to find out for sure.
So, I am posting to get feedback in a worst case where the HOA won't let us do that. What are everyone's thoughts on a vent hood with a recirculation kit for a BS 36" range? This would NOT be on a island, but on a shared wall with another townhouse unit.
I just spoke to a BS rep about an "event" in my area and he stated they are supposed to have a BS vent with recirc soon. I don't really even know what brand we want, I am just more looking for feedback on the recirc. stuff in general as I really don't know anything about it.
