Client has a gas oven installed against a party wall with his dining room, not an outside wall. There is no provision for his range hood to vent to the outside. He plans to upgrade and wants to vent outside. The only way I can see is to go down behind the stove, into the basement and then run it to the exterior.

I've never seen that kind of a setup, though. We'd be trying to force hot air to go down about 7 feet and of course there will be condensation to deal with. Thoughts?

What's a party wall????......Kinda like a half wall???? There are vent hood systems that hang down from the ceilings that vent to the outside, whether thru the roof or along the rafters/floor joists .................More input ...What is over the ceiling in the kitchen, another floor???...an attic????

A full wall that separates kitchen from dining room. There is a second floor, we can't go up very easily. The range hood must be "under cabinet". The one he has now merely recirculates the air.

He considers it unsatisfactory.

Yes, typical metal mesh business.

Where I am the local gas code does not allow a gas cooking appliance without an outdoor vent installed

That's the way it should be IMHO.

I won't pretend to understand these recirculating hoods. What good are they?

My re-circulating hood does pretty well at keeping grease out of the rest of the kitchen. The cooking vapors are pulled through the filter and the grease "condenses" on the cool metal filter. If I burn something though, the smoke is blown right through. I have an electric range and venting outside would be a huge PITA :)

My Condo complex is 3 stories high and we have 12 units in each building, that would also be a huge PITA if they were vented outside, and we have gas cooking here.

Well, it was definitely too much PITA here as well, and I sent the client an email declining to bid. I hate doing that but I've also learned to stay away from this kind of thing. Stock out of the box, maybe a little tweaking within reason, but that's as far as I go.

Good idea, smart move, you are an appliance technician, not a house builder.
