Hi rodriguezm,


It sound like you are trying to install a range hood as you mentioned a cabinet above it. It that correct?


There are several types of kitchen exhaust fans, some mount in the ceiling, others under a cabinet.


If a range hood is what you are installing, the typical style are mounted to a cabinet above the

cooktop or range in the kitchen.


Range hoods come ducted (with provision for a duct leading to the outside) and non-ducted, where the air is filtered and sent back into the room.


Normally the hood is sized to the range or cooktop; a 30 inch cooktop will use a 30 inch range hood, etc.


An electrical outlet in the cabinet above the range hood is required to power the fan and light.


I have included a link below showing a typical range hood.
