    Stupid trying to recover the energy from a cooktop fume hood. It's probably a gas stove top too, so it's ideal to have some venting anyway.

    Can't you use a hinged damper on the end of the vent pipe just like on a clothes dryer vent? That would reduce most heat less when it's not running.

    The best part is when someone says " are you thinking about connecting it after the heat exchanger, maybe not so crazy then"
    Umm... that would be the same as venting it outside!
    If at first you don't succeed; charge, charge, charge again.
