The GE Profile Microwave provides up to 400 CFM of ventilation through the soffit, discharging through the wall. We selected a panel instead of a cabinet over the range due to the size of the required duct.
The soffit allowed us the option of venting the third bedroom bath fan out the wall instead of through the roof. Using a section of flex duct in the attic helps to quiet the exhaust and allows for an easier sweeping turn using rigid thinwall PVC for the powder room fan. Kevin used Zip tape to attach the flex duct and PVC and applied fire retardant spray foam around the fan unit in the attic, and also around the penetration through the wall and ceiling.
There is a learning curve when installing automatic door switches. Carving the door jamb and jack frame is tedious, however, with a little patience and by only bringing a single switch cable into the box, the wiring process is simplified. The extra time to install is worth it. There is nothing better and safer than opening a door and having instant light.
