To calculate the length of the system you need, add the
equivalent feet (meters) for each vent piece used in the system.
Maximum equivalent vent length is 50 ft (15.2 m).
Example Vent System
The following example falls within the maximum vent length of
35 ft (10.7 m).
Electrical Requirements

conformance with National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70 (latest
edition), or CSA Standards C22.1-94, Canadian Electrical Code,
Part 1 and C22.2 No. 0-M91 (latest edition) and all local codes

Prepare Location
It is recommended that the vent system be installed before
hood is installed.
Before making cutouts, make sure there is proper clearance
within the ceiling or wall for exhaust vent.
We recommend the hood be installed 30"to 36" (76.2 cm to
91.4 cm) above the countertop.
Check your ceiling height and the hood height maximum
before you select your hood.
To avoid damage or dirt, place a thick, heavy covering over
countertop, cooktop, or range.
