The Benefits of DCKV
Kitchen exhaust hoods have traditionally been an on or off proposition. The hood was turned on when the crew came in and turned off, (hopefully), when the crew left. When you stop to consider how much cooking was going on under the hood during that time, it is obvious that this practice wasted a lot of energy.
Energy to power the exhaust fan at full speed all day, as well as energy in heating and cooling the air in the kitchen, only to throw it out into the atmosphere. Demand Control Kitchen Ventilation (DCKV) controls the exhaust and supply fans automatically in order to provide the correct amount of exhaust at the correct times, based on the amount of cooking being performed, saving you energy and money.
An investment that will save you money
A proper and well designed DCKV system can save money for the operator every single day. Consider the fan operating as low as 30% of its capacity for all of the hours when there isn't any actual cooking. If that's even as little as 5 hours a day, you've saved 70% of your fan power for 5 hours! Not to mention that for those five hours only a small fraction of your (paid) precious conditioned air stays where it needs to be- inside.
Your fan doesn't work as hard and therefore will most likely last much longer. Not to mention that your electric bill will be smaller as well.

Working with KES was such a great experience. Last year we went through a very large project of installing the ECOAZUR systems on our kitchen exhaust hoods. Cameron and team were incredible. They were onsite way ahead of time creating our install plan and worked with me on scheduling with the client. The areas that we were installing this equipment has very little room for downtime.
My experience with KES was great. Shop drawings were provided very quickly, with the detail that really showed what was needed so that we were able to clearly read it and pick up all needed connections for our design drawings. They provided a ROI estimate which was key for a client to understand the value of a product like this and how it can affect their bottom line.
