Kitchen Ventilation Improvement

Steven G. Liescheidt, P.E., CCS, CCPR

An effective commercial kitchen ventilation (CKV) system requires balance - air balance that is. Fortunately, there is no “magic” to the relationship between an exhaust hood and its requirement for replacement or makeup air (MUA). The physics are simple: air that exits the building (through exhaust hoods and fans) must be replaced with outside air that enters the building (intentionally or otherwise).

This course is based on the document Design Guide – Improving Commercial Kitchen Ventilation System Performance - California Energy Commission P500-03-034F Rev. 5.5.03.

This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
