Is there any reason to do vertical venting?
After 105 years of being range-hood-less, our kitchen will finally being seeing its first vent hood in the near future. Our home is one storey with an attic. Our range (electric) will be located on an external wall. The hoods we are considering have the option for vertical venting with either round or rectangular ducting, or horizontal venting with rectangular ducting only.
Is there any reason we should vent vertically through the attic instead of going horizontally right out the back? I have heard that round ducting is preferable to rectangular, but is there any reason to do vertical (with round) when the horizontal option (with rectangular) would be *many* times shorter? Thanks!
