Recirculating OTR range hoods & washer/dryer ventilation
I’m installing an electric range in a small house, and am considering a microwave with a built-in recirculating over the range hood (with filter). The house is very small (500 s.f.) and pretty tight, and California T-24 code requires continuous exhaust ventilation, which I plan to have in the bathroom (Panasonic WhisperGreen), but I’m afraid if I put an additional exhaust fan in, I’d have to provide ventilation in from outside. How effective are these OTR recirculating hoods?
I’m also putting a stacked washer/dryer in my pantry closet (natural gas dryer). Would this need supply air or ventilation? May keep some clothes in there as well, and not sure if the W/D would introduce moisture into this walk-in. I’m in Sacramento, zone 3, mostly cooling loads. Will be using 3/4 ton ductless mini-split for cooling and heating.
Thanks for any recommendations. I’ve never done a house this small before.
