I was wondering if this is a common experience/mistake.
I used to have a slide-in oven. Gas range and gas convection oven.
I switched during a reno to a gas cook top and an electric wall oven (built into my lower cabinet)
Now I realized that built-in ovens actively kick out heat even when not on convection mode. A lot. Constantly in fact. I find in the winter and when my cooler kitchen needs heating up it's ok but when baking in warmer weather, I can't make icing in my kitchen because it is too hot while the baking is happening and some time after.
Also after I turn off the oven, it kicks out heat for a long time afterwards.
It's noisy and I hate it.
I am really bummed. I should never have invested in a built-in oven.
Unless there is something wrong with my new kitchenaid built-in, I wanted to warn other renovators that wall ovens kick out heat actively with a fan potentially all the time, not emit it passively like a slide in oven does.
I wish I had known.
thanks and best
