I have a cooktop exhaust vent that is routed to the outside of the
house. On the outside of the house there is a vent with a flat on it.
Unfortunately the flat on the vent never closes - letting cold air in
throughout the winter months.
Where do I find a replacement vent( I didn't see it at the home deopt)?
Is this a job for a hvac guy?
My Home Depot has several shapes and sizes, right by the bath fans.
Most have spring loaded dampers built in.
If you don't feel confident doing this, an HVAC guy or skilled
handyman should be able to do it for you.
FWIW, our Broan range vent has flappers on the onside over the stove
and on the outside wall outlet. The outside flap assembly was in stock
at Lowes where we bought it. A little hard for the clerk to find,
until we gave him the part number from the installation instructions.
