Kitchen Hood VAV Controls

TEL’s Kitchen Control System can detect both smoke and temperature rises, increasing the airflow only when full performance is needed, significantly reducing energy costs and carbon emissions of your kitchen hood.

Roughly 25% of a food service’s energy costs are to condition outside air brought in to keep a kitchen comfortable and safe. According to estimates from the American Gas Association, the US food service industry wastes more than $2 billion each year because of this type of excessive ventilation. TEL’s kitchen control system has revolutionized kitchen costs, reducing energy usage by up to 75%.


Energy and cost savings
TEL’s kitchen control system controls the amount of ventilation required in the kitchen depending on cooking loads. This considerably reducing energy costs and carbon emissions.

Noise reduction
TEL’s kitchen control system reduces the need to run fans at full speed all of the time. This virtually eliminates kitchen noise when not in operation, and creates a more pleasant environment for employees and guests (especially when hoods are located next to guest rooms).

Extending equipment life
TEL’s kitchen control system can extend the life of your kitchen equipment – especially the belt, filter, and compressor.

Reducing cleaning costs
Excessive fan speeds send grease up the duct, into the fan and out to the building roof. Slowing down the exhaust fans and reducing the air duct velocity allows the grease to drain back to the hood and into grease cups for easy disposal. This reduces the frequency that the hood and ducts need to be cleaned.
