Abstract

Kitchen ventilation plays an increasingly important role in achieving acceptable indoor thermal environment inside a kitchen. However, currently no standards for the optimized design of ventilation systems in Chinese kitchens are available. This may impact on optimizing system design and energy use for kitchen ventilation. This paper reports on a study where ventilation systems in three Chinese kitchens in hotels in Hong Kong were investigated, with respect to their ventilation rates, and indoor thermal environment. It was found that in general in the three kitchens, there existed problems of over exhaust and over-cooling of kitchen areas. It is suggested that further studies on establishing proper ventilation rates and suitable indoor thermal standards for Chinese kitchens be carried out.
