Why Hinge Kits and Proper Electrical Conduit Are So Important
The Importance of a hinge kit is to allow access to the vertical duct of your exhaust system by allowing the fan to open to a ninety degree angle. This provides proper access to the duct to clean your kitchen exhaust system properly without harming the mechanics or structural integrity of the fan.
Troubleshooting Your Commercial Exhaust Fan
From time to time, issues arise after a cleaning has occurred. The most common call we get after a cleaning has been performed is that the exhaust fan is not turning on, or it is not working at its full capacity. Here are a few frequently asked questions and resolutions.
The Importance of Fan Access Panels
Fan access panels are fairly new to the Kitchen Exhaust Cleaning industry and they play a very important role to the Kitchen Exhaust cleaning process. So much so that fan manufacturing companies are now making fan access panels are part of the design of the fan. This dramatically affects the lifespan of the fan by making the service process easier and more thorough.
Kitchen Air Flow Basics
As a commercial cooking facility manager, it’s important to understand how the air balance in your facility works, or at least enough to recognize that there’s a potential problem. Not understanding the relationship between all three systems can become costly and create other issues within your facility.
Introduction To Commercial Roof Types
In addition to cooking equipment, exhaust systems, and exhaust fans, it is equally important you have a basic understanding of roofing systems. This knowledge will help you to be able to properly assess rooftop issues and help you understand the importance of maintaining greasy waste water to avoid compromising the roofing system.
The Importance of Baffle Filters
Baffle filters are one of the most important pieces of the kitchen exhaust system. The main function of the baffle filter is to act as a barrier from a fire on the cook top and the duct work. In fact, NFPA 96 requires that a vent hood must baffle filters in place when operating the vent hood and cooking.
Preventative Hood Maintenance
When operating your commercial exhaust system, there’s more to maintaining your system than just setting up scheduled maintenance with your kitchen exhaust cleaning provider. It’s important to perform maintenance on the system between service visits and to monitor the build up in your system.
