Heat duct under kitchen cabinets heating up cabinets

Sweet stuff
2 years ago

I recently had construction workers add kitchen cabinets and change heat ducts to go under cabinets (no other way around heat ducts in small kitchen). I noticed that the cabinets over the heat duct and around it (three cabinets) are heating up. I had oil in one of the cabinets and it was heated. So anything I put in those three cabinets will spoil. One is an under sink cabinet where I put dish soaps and dish washing items. I'm afraid the soaps will spoil and the powder detergents will melt. Any way to prevent the cabinets from heating up? Did they do anything wrong during heat duct installation to cause this? Thanks for any help in advance.
