I have a probably stupid question about assembling ventilation pipe for a cooker hood.
I want to vent my cooker hood through the eaves rather than go through the roof as I suspect it's cheaper, less effort and less visually disruptive.
This is in a relatively modern extension of a circa 190 year old traditional stone and slate property.
I could core through the bricks, but I thought that was a more difficult job with the most scope for damage.
The hood has max flowrate at 386m^3/h so a bit of research suggests I can get away with 5"/125mm (or equivalent flat channel).
I was looking at the Manrose catalogue and I can't work out what I need to terminate the flat channel? Can you just cut a hole, use one of the grilles and place the flat channel up against it? Not sure how it connects - if indeed it does.
I know there are 'airbricks' that look like a 'connectable' thing, but I don't have much vertical leeway - just 6cm at the outside edge.
A am thinking of using a flexible or 45 degree flat channel connector at the left hand side is what I was thinking, just not sure if it has to go through an airbrick or can just poke into the 2cm wood of the eave (at number 9 above).
Hope that makes sense - I wish I had a selection of parts to 'play' with to see how these could fit together.
I have a toolstation, wickes, b&q and screwfix handy.
Thanks for any pointers!
