Commercial Vent Hood Installation Cost
Commercial Vent Hood Installation Cost explained.
NYC Restaurateurs need all kinds of equipment, and the type of equipment they purchase will vary widely depending on what they are cooking and serving.
Sometimes it all comes down to exhaust. It is imperative that there is enough clearance for city building inspectors to give your restaurant a passing grade on inspection.
Buying, installing, and maintaining an exhaust system will often be the most critical component of a commercial kitchen exhaust ventilation system NYC restaurant owners will have to consider.
Regardless of the menu, every NYC restaurant kitchen needs proper venting. It sounds simple but the cost of every exhaust system will be affected by the length and complexity of the duct run, not by the hood make or model and the mechanical parts themselves.
On average, top of the line systems (such as Gaylord or Captive Aire), can cost anywhere $1,000 to $1,500 per linear foot (and the average is 10 to 12 feet), must not only funnel smoky, grease laden vapors out, but also bring an equal amount of fresh, clean air in (make-up air).
There are two different types of hoods. A Type 2 non-grease hood is for restaurants that are only producing water vapor during the cooking process. A Type 1 grease hood is for all the others. We suggest only designing a commercial kitchen line with Type 1 UL hoods as opposed to the Type 2 non-grease NFPA (National Fire and Protection Association) hoods.
When your Type 1 exhaust system is up and running, it will need to be regularly cleaned by a company that specializes in duct cleaning. Master Fire Prevention is your one-stop call from design, to installation, inspection and service of your commercial kitchen hood and exhaust ventilation system.
