Southern California Edison – Creating an Effective, Code-Compliant, Commercial Kitchen Ventilation (CKV) System in Vented and Ventless Applications – (1.5 CEUs)

April 18 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

The purpose of an exhaust hood in your kitchen is to capture all the heat, smoke, and grease generated by the cooking equipment. If it fails to do its job, the grease and other particles will spill out making the kitchen less comfortable for your staff. And in many cases, undesirable odors and excess heat will make their way into the dining room and tax your HVAC system. New green building and heat illness regulations have introduced challenges to designers, environmental health specialists, and operators, who want to create effective and safe kitchen ventilation systems while remaining true to building and fire codes. Only well-designed and optimized exhaust systems will meet all standards.

Learn how to optimize your kitchen exhaust system - whether vented or ventless, know when and how to use ventless exhaust, understand how kitchen electrification will affect hood requirements, and design systems that meet the energy and CalOSHA codes and standards.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Research findings on indoor air quality in kitchens and dish rooms.
  2. See how space design and troubleshooting differ for various hoods, including with typical exhaust hoods, recirculating hoods and unhooded equipment.
  3. Understand upcoming revisions to Title 24 of the California Code of Regulations and Cal OSHA regulations and how they affect the design of commercial kitchens, both new and retrofit.
  4. Find utility programs and services, cost savings and rebates for qualified energy-efficient equipment
