Wall vent vs. roof vent
We are installing a custom wood range hood and can’t decide between venting through our wall or heading through the roof. The duct is 6″ round. Going through the roof the run would be about 3-4′ straight up. Roof is pitched about 5-12 and the vent cap would land right around 30″ from the eave.
The range sits on an exterior wall, so heading though the wall would give the run a 90 degree turn and about 2′ of ducting. The siding is 4″ lap fiber cement. Any pros or cons or suggestions to persuade me one way or another?
