Can a micro/fan combo be easily swapped out for a range hood?
The house we're about to buy has a microwave/exhaust fan combo above the smoothtop range. Luckily the exhaust fan IS properly vented out through the roof, LOL (we've seen a few that weren't!).
We're planning on replacing the smoothtop range with an induction range, probably the GE Profile. It's a small house and so I want to be able to get rid of as much of the cooking odors etc as possible and am concerned that the micro/fan combo might not be all that effective.
Since there is ductwork already there for the combo unit, is it a relatively simple matter to swap out the combo for a good over-the-range exhaust fan? Or are the duct requirements different for a dedicated exhaust fan than for one of these combination units? Thanks!
