inline, external, remote, etc Confused about vent hoods

posted by: Peke on 01.17.2013 at 08:27 am in Appliances Forum

Please help with explanations of vent hoods. I read about it then promptly forget it and have to go looking for it again. So I thought I would ask and maybe get the info in one place. Wish a sticky could be made.

1. external- outside, but where?
2. internal-
3. inline-
4. liners- just the metal part? inside a wood outside hood?
still need to buy blowers and ????
5. blowers- understand cfm but that is all.
6. rear venting- does it say horizontal ?
7. anything I left out?

I understand the heights, widths,depths, capture area, etc. for why you choose a vent hood.

Isn't it more expensive to buy the blowers and liners and hood separately? What is the reason for doing that? Maybe wanting a custom wood hood? If I am wanting S.S. would I save money by buying it as an all-in-one?

Confused mind here! Please help! Thanks, Peke

Thank you everyone who posts on these forums. You are all helping along our whole house gut reno more than you will ever know!

I have been reading the threads but can't find my answer to my current dilemma, so here is my first post. It's time to buy the range hood. I plan on buying an Abbaka Hy-ex blower. I want a 42" SS, wall-mount, chimney style hood. I do not have upper cabs. The hood must have room for 10" ductwork. My rangetop is a 36" Capital Culinarian. Prefer baffles to mesh for the filters. Don't need heat lamps. Any thoughts? Thanks so much in advance!!!
