Kitchen Demand Ventilation Control

Kitchen ventilation exhaust hoods with demand controls on the ventilation motors use temperature and/or smoke sensing to adjust ventilation rates. This saves energy comparing with the traditional 100% on/off kitchen ventilation system, and you can get a $700 per horsepower incentive.
