CS Ventilation has licensed technicians that would be happy to offer any assistance with the decision making process. We have been installing commercial kitchen hoods for years and handled the process in all types of restaurants.

The exhaust hood serves as the entrance to your kitchen ventilation system. A hood needs to be installed directly above any cooking equipment that you have and should overlap the edges of the equipment by 6 inches. A professionally installed hood is a necessity for any establishment that uses a kitchen.

Once the hood is installed it can be turned on to suck up any hot air, grease or other vapors that are coming off of your grill. This will help keep your kitchen cleaner as well as prevent any obnoxious odors reaching your dining area from the kitchen. A cleaner kitchen is a better kitchen to work in and your staff will be sure to thank you for providing a clean workplace.

Having an exhaust system in place also significantly lowers the risk of a grease fire from happening in your establishment. Regular cleanings should be scheduled in order to ensure your ventilation system continues to keep your kitchen safe.

Kitchen Exhaust Design

When determining the best way to layout your ventilation system there are a few key points to remember:

  • Kitchen hood should be placed over cooking appliances
  • Kitchen exhaust filter needs to be easily accessible
  • Make-up air is readily available
  • Ducts carrying air out should go to a discrete outdoor location

By following these tips you can ensure the ventilation for your commercial kitchen is performing at an optimum level.
