Short-cycle kitchen hoods

Short-Cycle (Energy-saving) hoods introduce untempered outside air directly into the hood, reducing room air exhaust and lowering energy usage. This concept may be used when code requirements for exhaust air exceed the amount required to fully exhaust the smoke, heat and grease generated by the cooking equipment.
