Need to buy range hood that requires 6” duct but my house has 4” duct?

last modified: last month

I Need to buy range hood that requires 6” duct but my house has 4” duct that is only 10” long through the wall to outside. Can I just buy reducer and use with higher cfm (like 700) hood since duct is very short but I’m afraid it will be very loud and run motor down or should I just buy lower cfm (like 400-450) hood or should I just replace 4” duct that will be an additional expense I’m trying to avoid. I have 30” gas cooktop. Any input is very appreciated. Thank you
