    Hello
    Not a qualified electrician (full re-wire being done by certified firm) but a general all-rounder. Renovating a 150-year-old cottage.
    I've just removed an old Rayburn and want to vent the fan-assist cooker hood up the flue which is cast iron and looks to go all the way up to the chimney from ground floor through the roof (2 storey house - 4-meter run?). It's approx 150 mm diameter.
    I'll install a suitable cowl on the chimney.
    Is this possible?
    Thanks, Joe

    If the flue is redundant now then I see no reason not to make use of it for the cooker hood.

    Thanks. It's a round clay pipe, straight run through chimney. Should I put a moisture trap in do you think. Slightly worried about condensation.

    Absolutely needed a condensation trap. If it were me I might think about an inline fan higher up the flue so pulling the air out rather than push it from the bottom. Ask the manufacturer for a solution for such a situation you might get a better answer.
