Keeping Cool With Food Truck Exhaust Hood Systems

As we start to reach record high temperatures across the globe, it’s getting harder and harder to operate any outside establishments. Running an outside kitchen or food truck you are forced to operate heating elements that make the unbearable heat even more unbearable. Aside from a portable AC unit, there isn’t much you can do in a food truck to actually cool down the air, but there are some things you can do to help push out the hot air.


One of the best and most efficient ways to get hot air out of any food truck is through an exhaust fan system. The exhaust fan system is designed primarily to remove food particles such as grease, dirt, and smoke out - but what it an exhaust fan is extremely efficient at is removing hot air from a kitchen as well. An upbeats exhaust fan pulls hot air from the cooking area and pushes it out of the kitchen - leaving behind a cleaner, cooler air for the staff to work in.
