    How many watts does the APE130SS use at 440 CFM, 300 CFM and 100 CFM? Thank you!

    What parts would need to be purchased in order to install this with exteriod duct work?

    Asked by: tia
    Thank you for your question on the APE130SS range hood. The APE is a ducted only range hood that uses 3 1/4" x 10" duct. This hood can use a horizontal or vertical duct. We recommend using rigid, metal duct work as straight as possible. You would also require a wall or roof cap for termination to the outside.

    Will this range hood fit under a cabinet that is 15 inches deep

    Asked by: Pj
    Thank you for your question on the model APE130SS range hood. The APE130SS is designed to be installed underneath a standard 12 inch cabinet. If you install it underneath a 15 inch cabinet, you will have approximately three inches between the back of the hood and the wall.
