Anyway, I was wondering . . .how noisy is this set-up. (I've
asked before, but I don't recall receiving an answer!) I'm
wondering if I would be better off having a sheet metal hood
made, with the motor (fan) part outdoors, so I could hear the
"books on tape" that I'm usually listening to . . . Any
thoughts or suggestions?
There is a product that does just this … several, in fact. I
can’t remember the brand, but there is a venting system similar
to the Jenn Air stoves, but where the fan is remoted to the end
of the duct work, and sucks air through the stove or hood,
rather than pushing it out. Jenn Air, or one of their
contractors, supplied something similar for a TV studio where I
I also saw a bathroom vent system on TV the other day that uses
a fan suspended from the rafters of the attic and a flexible
hose to the vent in the loo, to minimize noise. This is the
one I vote for, and will likely use sometime in the future.
