Most modern commercial kitchen ventilation systems have an expected lifespan of between 15 and 20 years. However, conditions in the kitchen can have a fairly dramatic impact on how long a ventilation system can be expected to last. That’s why it’s a good idea for commercial restaurant owners to check out the following warning signs that it might be time for a new Kitchen Ventilation System Installation in Massachusetts RI.
Grease buildup almost always occurs over time, but it can usually be ameliorated through a thorough cleaning. If the unit hasn’t been maintained appropriately, though, it may not be possible to remove all that grease without compromising the system’s safety and effectiveness. When this is the case, it’s typically necessary to replace the unit entirely.
Excessive airflow can lead to higher HVAC bills. It can usually be attributed to outdated system design, so replacing that old system is often enough to reduce excessive airflow and the higher cost of operation often caused by this problem.
Back-of-house renovations should always involve an assessment of the kitchen’s requirements and its current ventilation system. If it isn’t running at maximum efficiency, this is a great time to look into a new kitchen ventilation system installation in Massachusetts RI.
If equipment starts failing frequently, it may need to be replaced. It just doesn’t make sense to continue having to take these systems off-line for servicing, as this causes unnecessary downtime. Given that increasing frequency of equipment failure is typically an indication that it is outdated and in need of replacement, to begin with, it just doesn’t make sense to continue making repairs to the aging system.
It’s not uncommon for menu changes to require shifts in production. When these involve accommodating an increased volume of food, it may be necessary to install a larger ventilation system to ensure continued kitchen safety.
