    Selecting the Ideal Spot for Your Exhaust Fan

    If you're setting up a new kitchen or planning to enhance your existing kitchen space, installing a new exhaust hood system is a crucial consideration. While the visible exhaust hood in the kitchen holds significance, the unsung hero of this system is undoubtedly the exhaust fan. The exhaust fan plays a vital role in maintaining optimal air quality and is responsible for removing smoke, grease, odors, moisture, and hot air from the kitchen. Taking the right steps before the exhaust fan installation can ensure a seamless and hassle-free process.

    Crucial Components: Curb, Mounting, and Inspection

    A curb is necessary because the fan will be installed on the rooftop. This structure covers the opening cut into the roof during installation and secures the fan unit in place. Once the curb is in position, securely mount the fan onto it. Subsequently, thoroughly check key components such as the fan wheel, pulley, and belts to ensure proper functionality. After confirming these elements, install the exhaust fan hinge kit, a requirement according to NFPA 96 fire codes. This kit enables easy access for inspections, maintenance, and cleaning.
