Are you constantly running your kitchen exhaust fans?

Demand control kitchen ventilation (DCKV) systems ensure your exhaust fan is only operating when necessary and are ideal for commercial kitchens found in restaurants, retail malls with food courts and cafeterias in schools, offices and hospitals.

  • Reduce cooling and heating costs by optimizing the use of your ventilation system.
  • Customers who have installed DCKV have seen annual natural gas bills reduced as much as 20 per cent*.

Take advantage of increased incentives on retrofit installations when you upgrade your existing system to DCKV**

Inspect and detect—avoid carbon monoxide poisoning

Carbon monoxide (CO) is a toxic gas that can build up when any fuel-burning equipment, such as your furnace or water heater doesn’t burn or vent properly. Because you can’t see or smell CO, it’s extremely important to inspect and detect to keep your employees safe.

The best ways to protect yourself and employees from CO poisoning:

  • House Icon

    Have all fuel-burning equipment inspected annually by a Technical Standards and Safety Authority (TSSA) registered contractor.

  • Hands Icon

    Clear outside exhaust vents, flues and chimneys of nests, leaves or other debris.

  • Alarm Icon

    Install CO alarms on every level of the building. Detecting a natural gas leak requires a natural gas or combined natural gas/CO alarm.

What are the symptoms of
CO poisoning?

  • Headaches, shortage of
    breath, fainting.
  • Dizziness, nausea, vomiting.
  • Mental confusion,
    drowsiness, weakness.
  • Unconsciousness.
These dangerous symptoms can be fatal.  If you suspect CO is the cause, call 911.
