Retrofit Old open ceiling vent with range hood
I have been trying to research retrofit installs but come up empty. Its an old 1933 open ceiling vent that I want to install a range hood ventilation system.
i am in a rental and the landlord says its up to me to install my own range hood. Its not an ideal install area, I have to put the range hood above a pot rack, its a small space but luckly I have an open ceiling vent I can tap into . I would like to do as little damage to the old plaster with out damaging anything else (see pictures)
I was thinking of mounting the hood and running duct to the opening and sealing it with some type of caulking to seal any gaps?
