I am so happy with my new hood
This whisper quiet hood does an excellent job of extracting odor and includes several power levels. I don't usually use the most powerful unless extremely odorous. I like it so much more than the vent-a-hood I have in another property.
I wish I had found this before.
It is very attractive against the wall and the S/S looks to be very durable and cleans well. It vents directly out an exterior wall which always helps.

Does the unit come with a non-ducted kit for indoor exhaust ventilation
Thank you for your question on the model RME5030SS range hood. The RME5030SS is only designed to be vented outside. There is no option for a non-ducted installation.

When installed non ducted should the vents be visible near the ceiling?

Our current duct is 7 inches, but the specifications say 6 inch. Is this a problem?

Decorative vents or functional?
When non ducted can the vents that are exposed towards the ceiling be covered with crown molding? Are the only decorative or serve a purpose?
Thank you for your question on the model RME5030SS range hood. The RME5030SS can only be installed ducted to the outside. When installed with a nine foot ceiling, you will see the vents in the chimney. They can be covered with crown molding.
