In my small (1400 sq ft), single-story 1953 ranch home in Zone 5 CT, I have recently turned a 132 sq ft, W-facing sunroom (on slab with slate flooring) into a kitchen. The room has a sloped ceiling, ranging from 12′ on the interior to 8′ at the exterior, window-lined (to the ceiling) wall. It has two skylights that open and close manually, and will be heated with Runtal baseboard radiators. It is isolated from the rest of the home by a door into the living room that has a Hearthstone wood-burning insert.
The kitchen stove, a Blomberg 24″ electric range, is on the interior, high wall. We do not eat meat, do not fry anything but eggs and onions (though never together!) (yet). Thus, I do not want a bulky, overpowered exhaust/ventilation fan on the wall, nor do I need this much power. Can I install an exhaust fan (such as a WhisperGreen), on the wall for odors and ultrafine particles?
There is a kneewall in the attic (well-insulated!), as well as an opening behind the stove in the interior wall that hasn’t been enclosed, yet.
Also, Martin has suggested the Lunos eGo in the past, but I do not have an exterior wall except the small space between the top of the baseboard radiators and bottom of the windows.
