According to a recent report, the commercial kitchen ventilation system market is set for major growth over the next decade. As technological advancements improve, employees demand better working conditions, and environmental regulations tighten, the demand for ventilation systems will only grow.


Proper air flow in your restaurant kitchen

If you already own a restaurant or are looking into setting up a restaurant kitchen for the first time, you are well aware of the importance of proper ventilation. Choosing the right exhaust hood, making sure your HVAC system works with your ventilation system, and placing your kitchen equipment in the right spots are all essential in creating healthier environments, better tasting food, and reducing the risk of fires.


Better working environments

Eliminating harmful fumes in your restaurant kitchen helps provide a better working environment for your staff. Bad air quality can cause mold, mildew and bacteria growth along walls and ceilings, which not only result in failed health code inspections, but can potentially cause health problems for those breathing in the contaminants.


More regulations

Aside from the fact that proper ventilation systems in commercial kitchens are necessary to run better, healthier operations, potential strict regulations regarding VOC emissions are driving restaurants to update their systems. Getting ahead of those regulations now will prevent headaches down the road and in the meantime, you can benefit from cleaner working environments and better tasting food.
