Advice on Range Vent w/ external blower in High Snowfall area
I'm looking at employing an external blower on the roof to vent my very powerful 48" Capital Range. My concern is that we live in an area of Vermont where 2.5 feet or more of snow on the roof is not uncommon. The roof is pitched but not overly steep so it may hold snow for a while before sliding.
What is generally done to ensure that the blower and vent will not be obstructed by snow?
Any advice you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
An in-line system could probably be used instead if necessary, but still concerned about the vent pipe (likely round 10" duct).
