An effective commercial kitchen ventilation system requires air balance. The designer, installer or operator of the kitchen ventilation system may be the first person called upon to perform a “balancing act” when the exhaust hood doesn’t work. The strategy used to introduce replacement makeup air can significantly impact hood performance and should be a key factor in the design of kitchen ventilation systems.
This course is based on the document “Design Guide – Improving Commercial Kitchen Ventilation System performance”, California Energy Commission P500-03-03AF, 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.
