How much does it cost to install a ducted range hood?
If you want to install a ducted range hood, it must be connected to ductwork and vents outside the home. This usually involves cutting right through the walls outside of the home, although it can also involve running ducts throughout the house. More duct length means more installation work.
The cost varies based on the amount of ducting and its route. It may emerge directly from the wall or ascend via the ceiling. Installing a range hood with ductwork typically costs $300-900.
How much does it cost to install a ductless range hood?
Because there is no ductwork to deal with, ductless range hoods are far easier and less expensive to install, especially if you’re replacing an old range hood and installing a new one.
The typical installation cost of a ductless range hood is around $100-$300.
