Hi I am building a new home with a newly converted (professionally) 1906 cook stove. The stove top is gas and the oven is electric. The unit will be in the kitchen with a powder room wall on the left and a half wall in back, no wall on right. I want to place a downdraft vent behind the stove out of site with the motor and venting into the basement. The ceilings are 11 feet tall down there and I think it will be fine for odors. Is this a doable option for me? Otherwise I can't figure out how to do the venting. There is no hood above the cook stove. The ceilings in the main part of the house are also 11 feet tall. Thanks for your advice.

You mean exhausting the vent air *into* the basement air??? or just the motor in the basement but the exhaust still going outdoors?

Hi and thanks for the question. I found out that it is not really code to have the venting bad air down into the basement. So I would have to have the motor doen in the basement ceiling and the pipe go out to the outside. Is this possible with about 15-20 feet to the outside and using the motor from the downdraft system and not having to buy another motor? Man am I learning a lot.

No, I wouldn't image it would be. It could easily be a fire hazard in addition to possible health implications.

** Is this possible with about 15-20 feet to the outside **

That will depend on the specifications of whichever system you purchase. With no bends, it might be Ok.

** and using the motor from the downdraft system and not having to buy another motor? **

That too would depend on the system you purchase and how it was designed. I would suggest you discuss it with the dealer or manufacturer first because if you install the appliance in a way it is not designed to be installed, you could very well void any warranty on the product not to mention reduce its life expectancy and effectiveness.
