Designed to Serve You.

View the main components of the Intelli-Hood demand control kitchen ventilation system and how our unique design maximizes kitchen energy efficiency.

Now’s not the time to put energy efficiency on the backburner.

Without the Intelli-Hood demand control kitchen ventilation (DCKV) system, your kitchen is wasting energy, conditioned air and money. A self-learning system, Intelli-Hood optic and temperature sensors monitor the level of cooking activity, sensing when you’re slow and continually adjusting. Why run fans at 100% speed when your kitchen isn’t? Slow down exhaust and speed up savings.

  • Save up to 66%-78% on fan energy
  • Save 30%-40% on conditioned air
  • Pays for itself in 1-3 years
  • Release fewer carbon gases into the atmosphere
  • Works with new or existing commercial hood systems
