Island cooktop ventilation?

user-4145989 | Posted in Mechanicals on

I am looking for a 300 cfm hood with remote fan for the island-mounted cooktop of my new home. Cooktop is a 36″ induction; house has closed cell with HRV. I thought finding a small boiler to heat the house was a pain – this is worse! Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Here's one:

    If you want a remote fan, you can choose almost any hood you like, disable (or remove) the fan that comes with the unit, and install a remote fan in the ductwork.

    Our home down here in Kittery Point has turned out great thanks, in part, to your sage advice.
