This design guide provides information that will help achieve optimum performance and energy efficiency in commercial kitchen ventilation systems by properly selecting and sizing exhaust hoods.
The information presented is applicable to new construction and, in many instances, retrofit construction. The audience for this guideline is kitchen designers, mechanical engineers, code officials, food service operators, property managers, and maintenance people. This guide is intended to augment comprehensive design information published in the Kitchen Ventilation Chapter in the ASHRAE Handbook on HVAC Applications, as well as Design Guide 2: Improving Commercial Kitchen Ventilation System Performance – Optimizing Makeup Air (previously published in 2002 by the California Energy Commission under the title Improving Commercial Kitchen Ventilation Performance).
This guide reviews the fundamentals of kitchen exhaust, describes the design process from the perspective of exhaust hood application and concludes with real-world design examples illustrating the potential for energy efficient design.Download: Selecting Hood Sizes
