Wanting to switch from downdraft of island vent
Hi there. Long time lurker, first time poster.
We plan on redoing the kitchen completely at some point, but I'm putting it off until we're in a better spot to manage the hassle of a overhaul. We have the original 1980s Jenn-Air down draft range. I've replaced cartridges and clocks since moving into the house 6 years ago, but it's clear that the entire range is about to go kaput.
I really loathe the downdraft in general and Jenn-air in particular. But I still don't feel ready to commit to a complete kitchen overhaul. If/when we do it, it's 95% likely that the range will stay in the same place, so I'm considering replacing the range and trying to get an island vent installed.
Does anyone have a ballpark range of what I'm looking at in terms of cost? Even an order of magnitude would be helpful. The range is the in middle of the kitchen, on the first floor of a two story house. Is it even possible to retrofit duct work?
Thank you in advance for any information you can provide.
