Determine Vent Length
1. Select the route that will provide the straightest and most
direct path outdoors. Plan the installation to use the fewest
number of elbows and turns. When using elbows or making
turns, allow as much room as possible. Bend vent gradually
to avoid kinking. Avoid 90º turns.
2. Determine vent length.
The maximum length of the exhaust system depends upon:
The type of vent (rigid metal or flexible metal).
The number of elbows used.
Type of hood.
Recommended hood styles are shown here.
1. Louvered hood style
2. Box hood style
