I am having a new house built. What are the pros and cons of venting or not venting a stove vent hood. I always thought that you should vent the hood to remove excess heat and odors (and occasional smoke) from cooking on the stove. The other method would be to recirculate the vent. It will cost me $350 to have a vent put in. Not including the price of the vent hood.

Thanks for your expert opinions!
