how to go from otr mw fan to range hood exhaust?
I'm moving into my new house soon. Currently there is a microwave over the cooktop with a typical exhaust fan that blows the air right back into the room. There is no vent or pipe in the cabinet above the microwave.
I have this in my current house, and I'm SO sick of my house smelling like last night's dinner for days on end.
I'm not sure how pricey a proposition it is to install an exhaust fan that actually moves the air outside. Ideally, I'd like a wood hood and to move the microwave elsewhere. I assume some venting would have to be run to the outside (through the roof? out some other way?) and that just sounds expensive and scary to me.
Say it ain't so?
