Benefits from a variable speed hood

Primarily used in commercial kitchens and restaurants, the variable speed hood extracts air automatically when it detects grease and steam from cooking. Its control system modulates both the air exhaust and the air intake flows from the fresh air supply unit, reducing energy losses caused by the continuous operation of the supply unit. More effective than a standard hood, the variable speed hood is ideal for improving your kitchen’s energy performance.

Consume less, spend less

Save money and energy right away! The variable speed hood enables air extraction to be modulated, resulting in a reduction of up to 50% in the energy used to heat fresh air, saving you money on your energy bill.
