How to install Rustica Copper Range Hoods

Posted by Rustica House on

Since some of our buyers are not contractors nor professional kitchen appliances installers we decided to extend our hand to individual home owners in helping them to save money by installing Rustica copper range hood by themselves. Even though, do-in-yourself is not what we would recommend and instead suggest looking for a tradesman experienced with a copper range hood connection, the following are rustica copper range hood installation instructions.

  1. If your Rustica copper range hood was delivered with the insert installed, remove it by unscrewing screws holding it inside the hood. 
  2. Using a stand finder pin point location of your kitchen wall studs if it is a wall mount hood. In case of kitchen island hood style, look for the ceiling joints immediately above the range where the hood is going to be positioned. 
  3. With a drill make holes in an iron range hood frame exactly where studs were found. 
  4. Using minimum four heavy duty screws mount the hood on the wall or ceiling. That is under the condition you house is wood frame. If the building has been made out of concrete or bricks, you can drill holes in the range hood frame in any location it is convenient for you. 
  5. Connect the ventilation unique with the house exhaust system that is going to push air from the kitchen outside the house. Plug in the electric cord of the insert to regular 120V/60Hz plug installed immediately behind or above the range hood. 
  6. Reinstall the insert and check whether it is working correctly.
