Broan downdraft with external Fantech duct fan?
I'm renovating a kitchen and adding a downdraft hood to a gas cooktop. It seems reasonable that I could purchase the Broan 283603 without a blower, then purchase a Fantech FG8 duct fan to install inline in my crawl space. Seems that would be fairly quiet (instead of having the blower in the cabinet below the cooktop). Also, much lower price than buying one of the Broan external blowers. I'm making some assumptions that the Fantech could be wired into the Broan controls fairly easily. Anyone see any issues with that approach?
