Convert ducted extraction to recirculation

Postby Kateaudrey » Thu Jun 11, 2020 11:10 am

Hello, I've recently moved into a house with a Fagor oven extraction hood. It is currently a ducted extractor, but it extracts upstairs into a blocked up chimney flue in our bathroom, not ideal! I'd like to change it to a recirculation model. Are you able to advise what products I should buy, or if this is actually possible? Thank you for your help. Best wishes, Kate

Hi kateaudrey
You will need to establish whether the hood can be recirculating - if you haven't got a manual go to the Fagor web site.
If your hood can be recirculating seal up the hole into the chimney, make sure there are exposed vents and fit charcoal filter(s).
