Energy efficient supermarkets - Ventilation

Grocery stores have a great need for comfort heating and comfort cooling to maintain a good indoor environment for staff and customers. Besides, the kitchen has an increased need for ventilation to prevent cooking smells and carry away vapor and excess heat.

One often has a demand of both heating and cooling, many times simultaneously. The heat and cold is often distributed through the ventilation system. This gives greater air flows than those needed to meet the health requirements. Consequently, the use of energy and the construction of the energy systems in the kitchen differ compared to other facilities.

Here are potentials for energy efficiency, e.g. by using recirculated air, choosing the right filter type in the ventilation systems, and recovering the energy in the exhaust air.
