What does code say about the proximity of a range hood exhaust, for an electric range (i.e., there will be no exhaust of natural gas or carbon monoxide, just cooking odors) to a window. I live in a condo building that has a open vertical chase on the back of the building. It is approximately 6’ x 25’, going from 6’ below grade to the roof. All the units on my side of this chase have a double hung window that opens on this chase. I would really like to run an exhaust vent out of the apartment, but wonder about whether code permits it, and if so how close to any window, either horizontally or vertically must the exhaust be to comply with code.
If I’m allowed to put a fan in this kitchen window to vent the kitchen, and I’m not allowed to put an exhaust vent, can someone explain why.
