    Default Rangehood with a non centered exhaust

    Hi,
    I have an existing slideout rangehood that needs replacing which should be fairly easy, however, the old one had its exhaust on the left side. Our cabinets are built around this so it will be a bit painful to use a unit in with a centered exhaust (all seem to have their exhaust vents in much the same place).

    I've looked around (googled) for a unit that vents off to the side, but I'm not able to find any.
    Has anyone come across a unit that offers different venting options?
    I could also go with a non-exhaust unit, but, I'd really like to vent to the outside of the house if possible.
    Thanks,
    Luke

    Cabinetmaker here. The centred exhaust is commonly a flexible hose that can go anywhere really, winding into another room even. Venting off to the left side is possible too, but the cabinet (I imagine) would need to be modified or remade, to allow the hose to turn left, and perhaps to cover it with a cover panel. This is what I imagine anyway, based on common range hood cabinets I've made at work. Hope that helps!

    Bit late to the conversation but Bosch make a decent lefthand outlet slide out rangehood.
