    Default Electrical conduit installed over kitchen exhaust fan vent

    Hi guys, we had a sparky out recently to install a few air conditioners, the conduit was placed across the kitchen vent which is connected to the fan exhaust, we’re in QLD - is this up to code?

    Not a problem with AS3000 but looks a bit messy. Next time use the forum image uploader for images.

    Post a pic standing further back so we can see the complete install.

    rabes, please use this site's image uploader for personal pics. You may need to reduce the file size as there is a size limit around 1mb.

    Cheers Bros - I’ve uploaded an image above (sideways from mobile for some reason) - the install was the air con on the left. The right air con has been there for a while ta

    Happens all the time. On thing I noticed was the pipe insulation on our AC fell to bits after a couple of years so I suspect it is not UV stabilized.

    Knowing what I know now I would have painted the insulation with exterior water based paint.

    i normally use galvanised saddles and screws so they don't leave streaks of rust down the wall, more valid on light coloured walls though.

    That aluminium vent cover looks quite restrictive for a fan vent and suspiciously clean looking ��. Does much air come out?
