Let’s get into detail about chimney installation
1. Chimney’S Size
Chimney’s size plays a very crucial function throughout the installation. A large chimney may suck up smoke from your hob even when little is displaced. But, if your chimney size equals that of the hob, then it’s highly vital to set the chimney precisely above it, i.e., matching it end to end.
If you have a smaller chimney, it matches the duct’s center and hob.
2. Range Between Gas Stove And Chimney
The range between the top of the hob and chimney should be between 26″ to 30″. If the space is below 26″ and the gas stove is turned on without any utensil on the burner, the chimney may catch fire due to the oil in the collectors. And if the range within the chimney and hob surpasses 36″, the chimney cannot take away all the heat and smoke. Thus, the pollutants settle down, making kitchen shelves greasy and dusty.
3. Chimney Duct
Inducted chimneys ensure that the duct should not be greater than 12 feet. The most popular vents are stainless steel and aluminum due to their strength and longevity. Most chimneys come with PVC that quickly melts in extreme heat during suction.
Another factor is that the duct should not have excessive bends. Bends make it harder for the smoke to reach the exhaust. Hence, a short pipe with fewer bends is more effective.
4. Cut-Out For Chimney Duct
Build a 6-inch-wide and circular aperture for the duct in the kitchen’s exterior wall. This cut-out should be made at the height of 7 feet above the floor level on the kitchen’s outer wall. In case of no pre-existing hole, get chimney installation experts to construct the right spot for putting the chimney in the correct place.
Another option might be utilizing the cut-out hole of the external exhaust fan to run the duct through it. If you live in a rented home or apartment, it is best to opt for ductless chimney types to prevent such circumstances.
