My kitchen has an older style exhaust fan (not currently working) - celiing cut out above the stove, duct work through the attic exiting to side of the house. The fan motor seems to be installed at the wall. I think these usually worked via a pull chain - none apparent now although there is a hole in the cabinet at ceiling level where I could imagine the chain running.
Appears that there is wiring in place.
Can I make use of this with a new over the range hood? Or start all over venting through roof?
