The festive season

The dark and colder months of winter are upon us, coinciding with the festive season. This year it should be much better than over the last three years, as inflation continues to fall and the pound in our pockets goes a little further.

This is traditionally the busiest period of the year for most catering establishments, and, hopefully, you’re going to be working flat-out, with solid bookings throughout this period.

However, there is a change in the kitchen environment, because now more doors and windows will be closed against the outside elements. This brings its own issue that may have been disguised through the warmer months when you had the doors and windows open.

Your air input system may not be working properly.

When was the last time you checked your air replacement system?

As you, no doubt, already know, when air is extracted from a commercial kitchen, fresh air needs to be drawn into it from outside to maintain an air balance.
Otherwise, a negative air pressure will be created which causes poor working conditions and inefficient extraction in the kitchen.

What is the best thing to do?

If you’re unsure whether the air balance is right call 01733 230378 and talk to us at CK Direct so that we can give you our best advice.

Two additional things you could do to make your kitchen perfect

While you are ensuring that everything in the kitchen is in best condition it might be the right time to do two more things:

  1. Extend the life of your Extraction system by installing the CK Direct Airteck G64.

    This prevents the build-up of grease residue in the ductwork and prevents failures in the fans. This highly efficiency ozone generator unit also reduces odours by oxidising pathogens in the exhaust pipes,

    It is easy to install and maintain as it is installed external to the ductwork between the extraction point and the exhaust fan.

  2. Reduce your energy costs by installing the CK Direct Heat Recovery System.

    This is easily and quickly retrofitted, without the need for any cookline alterations, and with no effect on the extraction system. It will provide all your hot water needs by utilizing waste heat from the cookline and gives you significant cost savings and a fantastic ROI.
