Noise from roof-mounted blower? How bad is it?
Can anyone on the board who has an external blower for their range hood comment on the noise level near the blower itself? Not in the kitchen where the hood is, but in the room below where the blower is mounted, with or without a window open.
We think we have figured out a way to vent to the roof, running the duct up an external wall, but there are two floors of residents above us...the blower would essentially be mounted directly above the ceiling of our upstairs neighbor. I am worried it will be a problem, but can't find any solid information on what to expect.
Any real world experiences would be greatly appreciated. I know it will depend on brand, but any information is better than none..
