Hi. We’re fitting a new cooker and would like to add a cooker hood, there isn’t one at the moment. I’m just wondering if there’s any way the cooker hood can share a flue with the gas boiler so we wouldn’t have to put a new hole in the external wall. If not, I think there’s an old chimney behind, can we direct it out there somehow?

100% no.

You can get cooker hoods that don’t need to vent externally I believe, possibly charcoal filtered.

Only useful for removing some of the grease and smells, useless for getting rid of steam and the moisture created by cooking.

Current regs require new installation to vent externally.
