Solving appliance ducting concerns, makeup air, and island installations

Unique Appliance Problems Solved with Jenn-Air Downdraft

Contractor and Designer Creative Problem Solving with Jenn-Air

Sometimes you run across design and construction issues with appliances that just seem to defy solution. You think and think, and ask all your sources for suggestions and nothing seems to be a good solution. Here are two issues that seem to come up when it comes to locating and installing ranges and cooktops.

Island Installations of Cooking Appliances

Locating a range or cooktop on an island is perfect for an entertaining kitchen. Yet it seems quite rare (especially in Arizona) to find ranges or cooktops on an island. Advanced planning to get the 220v. electric or a gas line to the island is important. Doing floor cuts after the fact may be expensive, and impractical, and suspending an overhead hood from the ceiling can also be problematic.

However, one way to simplify these issues is to install a Jenn-Air downdraft range or cooktop. The proximity center ventilation eliminates the need for an overhead hood and clears the sight lines as well. In addition, Jenn-Air now offers a duct-free kit with a replaceable filter that eliminates the need for any external ducting. It's perfect for an island installation.

Makeup Air Issues Disappear

Recent changes in building codes require makeup air to replace the air removed from a home by powerful overhead hoods. Fortunately, because downdraft center proximity ventilation is close to the source of the vent air, high CFM motors are not required. The new Jenn-Air downdraft range vents at only 283 CFM. And, with a duct-free kit there is no air exhausted from the home so no concern with makeup air whatsoever.

Considering a new build or a remodel? Look into Jenn-Air downdraft to make ventilation challenges go away!

Builder Distributors

What is a builder distributor? Why should you care?

Answers from one of Arizona's Largest.

Production home builders, custom home builders, architects, designers, and other members of the construction trade need wholesale builder distributors for much of their supply chain in order to complete their projects on budget and on time. But WHAT OR WHO IS A BUILDER DISTRIBUTOR? To answer this question, we've created a checklist. To really be a builder distributor, your supplier should be able to meet most, if not all, of the criteria on the checklist at the bottom of this page.

QUICK TIP: One test to assess whether a firm fits the description of a contract distributor is to find out how the company describes itself. Look for clues in their name such as words like wholesale, distributor, builder, contract, supply, or supplier in the company name. Check the About Us heading of their webpage. You may be surprised to find that there are some leading so called distributors in town with websites that don't mention their connection to the contract side of the business.

Builder Distributor Checklist:

  • Offers products and brands that the contractor or trade professional needs.
  • Maintains a warehouse facility to store and distribute products.
  • Has a fleet of trucks and drivers dedicated to delivering the products to the jobsite.
  • Employs trained installers.
  • Has billing capabilities.
  • Provides adequate showrooms open to the trade.
  • Can supply references from other contractors.
  • Member in good standing of key builder organizations: HBACA and/or SAHBA.

  • Works with the design community where applicable NARI, ASID, NKBA, etc.
  • Has a dedicated outside sales staff.

Don't make it hard on yourself by having a haphazard and ill-conceived supply chain. Review this checklist and assess your business relationships with your suppliers. Make sure you're trade partners have the capabilities that you need for the future and are a good match for your business model.
