Help with kitchen vent
The builder 5 years ago terminated the kitchen range vent in a cabinet. While legal in my area, it's both a fire hazard and creates an odor problem.
It's on an outside wall and the outside wall is brick and not near a patio, etc. In other words I can vent there.
I hate putting holes in roofs - just more potential for leaks and other problems. I'm going to have to caulk several areas as it is. So I see my options as (1) a hood with grease shield recirculating into the room, (2) cut a hole in the exterior wall for a vent. But it's number (3) I'd really like advice about. Can I go up, into the attic, make a U-turn, and vent out of an under eave soffit vent?
