How to connect the hood?

Have you ever washed the kitchen hood? If yes, then you could see with your own eyes what fat and dirt deposits accumulate on the ventilation grill. If it were not for the hood, then all this dirt would be evenly distributed across the cabinets, tables, walls and ceiling of your kitchen. This means that without installing this kitchen device can not do. First you need to buy it, and in this you will be helped by our article What hood to choose.

Before you connect the purchased equipment, prepare the following tools and read the instructions.

Instruments

From the tools we need:

  • Screwdriver.
  • A simple pencil.
  • Screws and dowels.
  • Level.
  • Drill with a hammer drill (in case the walls are too thick).
  • Roulette.

Instructions for connecting the hood

All installation work can be divided into three stages:

  1. The choice of location, careful measurement, marking and installation of a separate outlet.
  2. Drilling holes, hood fasteners.
  3. Connection of equipment with a ventilation system and power supply.

Stage 1

Install the hood after installing all the furniture to accurately calculate its location. Then you need to measure out using a tape measure and the level where the holes for the screws will be located. Also at the first stage, the laying of a separate electrical cable to connect the hood. If the repair is finished, then it is not necessary to spoil the walls. Wires are easy to hide in special boxes that will not spoil the look of the kitchen at all.

Stage 2

In the points marked with a pencil, holes are drilled into which screws are screwed. They fix the hood and re-check the level, how exactly it is located. There should be no distortions, otherwise it will create difficulties in the operation of the device.

Stage 3

The last stage of work involves the supply of ventilation. For this purpose, corrugations or special boxes are used, which create less noise and look much more aesthetic. If possible, try to avoid frequent bending, as this reduces the performance of the hood.
