Step 3 – Identify the Center Point and Install the Range Hood Ductwork

Next, attach the aluminum vent pipe or ductwork to the place where the flappers were installed earlier. Wrap the stuck part to this ductwork tube with stainless steel tape so that there is no gap. Don’t forget to make sure the joints are solid and tight. By using aluminum ductwork or vent pipe, you will be able to exhaust the smoke from your kitchen and keep it smoke-free.

First, measuring with a tape measure, measure the distance between the bottom of the chimney and the bracket hole. Second, measure between the range hood’s current location and the actual location where it is. This measurement takes this equal measure and draws a long horizontal line ascending through a level ruler. Next, placing the other bracket on top of the ceiling, mark the holes with a pencil. Lastly, use a power drill to drill the marked areas.
After that, place the wall anchors inside the hole with the help of a mallet. The bracket should be placed in the same spot and screwed to the wall using the same two screws as in the first step. Next, place the chimney at the top of the rangehood slide and attach it to the upper ceiling bracket. You should tighten a bracket with screws to hold the chimney firmly in that place.
