Range Cooker Extractor Fan in Chimney Breast

Postby Revell3r » Sun Nov 29, 2020 5:52 pm

Evening all,

I hope this is in the correct forum. I have searched through and looked at YouTube but cannot find any clear options for our situation.

We have taken out an old boiler from a 1910s fireplace in the kitchen. We have replaced it with a 90cm range cooker and now want to put an extractor fan in the chimney breast.

The height from the oven is over 65cm and the flute is already there from the boiler.

Is there a recommended extractor fan for this kind of thing? I am guessing building a wooden frame inside the chimney breast and screwing it on there may be an option?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

There are loads of fans including those which can take some heat, I know when doing research into wood burners I found some fans for use with flue gases, but it is rather specialist, and the phrase range cooker covers many devices, so would not want to recommend anything without visiting the house. Even then I may past it to a specialist.
