Not true that new builds would have outside venting.

You need to be talking with the architect, not the builder, to get the vent hood venting to the outside. My architect had me specify all major appliances before the plans were put out to bid. I chose all appliances, (washer, dryer, stove, frig, plumbing fixtures and dish washer) and all lighting. The architect specified heating components and air recovery system.

My sister did not specify nor get an outside vent for her stove, and it caused problems. She has a LEEDS platinum house and the stove had to be vented to get that certification. The house was finished and they had to have the outside venting installed for the stove which was not against an outside wall.

That's really surprising to me Beth. What architect in his right mind wouldn't automatically include outside venting over a stove? I guess one who's only interested in cutting corners, although it seems pretty darn easy during the build.

Kayelle, I believe that for many families where cooking is not a priority, the standard setup of not venting to the outside is all they want.

Andy, I'm guessing those are the same folks who wouldn't care about bathroom vents either.

I know I'm in a cooking forum, loving the new kitchens and appliances.
Now besides yourself, how many people do you know in real life that actually cook?
Not just open boxes and cans.

I loved having a bathroom window to open. Sadly, most modern homes don't these days.
