Installing a variable-speed hood can generate significant energy savings in the 35-40% range. A variable-speed fan changes the airflow through the hood to match the heat, smoke or steam coming from cooking appliances. This makes it possible to avoid blowing too much warm air outside, and reduces the quantity of cold outside air to be heated.
Replace your ordinary hood with a variable-speed model, and get a rebate of up to $1,800 from Gazifère.
