What Does NFPA 96 Say About Fire Protection for Commercial Kitchen Exhaust Systems?

Last year we provided an overview titled, “Getting Educated About Kitchen Exhaust Cleaning." Today we’re going to provide some of the key points from the document which sets the standard in Illinois for ventilation control and fire protection of commercial cooking operations, published by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and referenced in the Illinois Life Safety Code, and best known as NFPA 96.

Time to clean your coils?

Keeping condenser and evaporator coils is critical to the efficient operation of an HVAC system. Over time, coils accumulate dust, dirt, pollen and other contaminants. This gets expensive in three ways: The buildup serves as an insulator, cutting down on the effectiveness of the coils. It also cuts down on the air flow. Both of these cost you money by making your system work harder. That, in turn, runs the risk of accelerating the need for repairs and maintenance. Cleaning coils is a tricky business. If you’re not careful, you can pack in the dirt, and or damage some of the parts.
