I live in condo style home. I have kitchen range and microwave is above it and they are placed against interior wall.
Rightnow, microwave fan is not connected to duct work to vent the hot air outside. and cabinets were hanged on the all the walls of kitchen.
the exterior wall is on the left side of kitchen range and microwave within 4 feet.
The only way we can install duct work for range is to run the duct work through cabinets to exterior wall on the left.
Will this type of ductwork to vent the hot air from kitchen range work ?
Is it allowed to run the duct work through kitchen cabinets?
if this design works, Are there any codes that we need to get approval from any authority for this type of work ?
which type of contractor will do this type of work ?
Any input on this will be appreciated.
