3 Major Benefits of Energy-Efficient Commercial Kitchen Ventilation

Grease. It’s a favorite among movie buffs but a detriment for foodservice operators. And the number one cause for grease in commercial kitchens is inadequate ventilation. But that’s not the only consequence.

Increased air pollutants, equipment downtime, and an overall uncomfortable work environment can all be factors of a foodservice operation with inefficient ventilation. It not only hurts your kitchen staff, it can affect your bottom line.

You wouldn’t want to work in a confined space with poor air quality for 8-10 hours a day. And neither should your kitchen staff. Here are a few reasons why you should consider an upgrade to your commercial kitchen ventilation.

Increased Productivity

Whether you operate a large cafeteria or a small restaurant, the kitchen staff is the lifeblood of your operation. Proper ventilation can lead to a more productive workforce. How? With a ventilation system that operates quietly with less air volume and reduced turbulence, the entire kitchen staff can effectively communicate and maintain a streamlined, efficient workflow.

Environmentally Friendly

Cleaner air means a cleaner kitchen. An energy-efficient ventilation system captures more pollutants while also using less energy. That benefits your food, your kitchen staff, and your planet. With tougher environmental standards put in place, commercial foodservice operations find themselves looking for new solutions to save on energy now more than ever.


Not only does an energy-efficient ventilation system cut down on energy costs, it can reduce installation costs and operating costs. A design with smaller fans, duct work, and an on-demand system that adjusts based on the load of the cooking equipment and process all put money back in the operator’s pocket.  So the question you may have now is, “Does a commercial ventilation system like this exist?”
