Chimney range hoods--replacing under cabinet vent

maxee123July 3, 2013

So new at this....
Doing on my own. Would so love to replace under cabinet range vent with chimney style hood. Will need to remove an upper cabinet and soffit. What should I be aware of as I begin to explore this kitchen update.
Any suggestions are so appreciated! Thanks!

Plumbing lines, uncapped electrical wires (i.e., freely hanging), vent ducting opposite what you imagined, to name a few.

Until you get that soffit down (a little at a time rather than a plunge), you won't know what's up. I'd hope you at least have some friend with you when doing this to help out.

How big is your current vent hood duct aperture? That may help you a little-it's sometimes easier to re-route or re-place a 6" round than a bigger 10".

Good luck.
