EcoHood uses patented opacity and temperature sensors to monitor smoke and heat generated while cooking. As a result an EcoHood system generates incredible energy savings (up to 50%) while improving the overall comfort level of any restaurant.
The EcoHood system is easily installed on any new or existing hoods.
o EcoHood automatically controls exhaust systems in commercial kitchens with patented sensors that detect temperature levels, as well as smoke and vapours.
o Automatically modulates exhaust from the hood in proportion to the levels of smoke, steam or heat detected, to capture and contain all effluent efficiently.
o EcoHood automatically stops all air exhaust from the hood if no smoke, steam or heat is detected and starts up as soon as smoke, steam or heat is detected .
o Complete system includes the opacity (smoke and steam) and temperature sensors, a control panel with keyboard and an LCD display.
o The optical sensors can be adjusted for accurate monitoring for hoods from 3 to 45 feet
o Reduced Energy costs (gas/propane/oil/electricity) up to 50%
o Qualifies for energy and GHG (Green House Gas) reduction grants
o Simple cost-efficient system that will maximizes profits, and minimize the Carbon Footprint, while keeping clients and staff comfortable in all climates.
o Back-lit, easy read display, and retains historical operational performance data for energy management.
o Needless hood exhaust results in fewer drafts and better air balancing from the dining area to the kitchen
o Staff experience less noise, better climate control and increased comfort in the kitchen.
o Extends exhaust motor life
o Fast and easy installation to existing or new hoods - all types.
o User friendly programming using LCD screen.
o 1-2 year Payback in most cases – Incredible ROI (Return on Investment).
o Noveo’s optical infra-red sensors feature 100% modulation to meet the exact demands for evacuation and guarantee maximum energy efficiency.
o Fully sealed, stainless steel optical sensor heads are easy to install on new or existing hoods.
o Self calibrating optical sensors, impervious to grease and moisture and wipe clean in seconds.
o No Air purging is required with the optical sensors.
o Temperature sensing across the entire hood permits the most precise and lowest permissible exhaust at any given point during the cooking process.
o Automatically stops all air exhaust from the hood if no smoke, steam or heat is detected.
The past two years have taught our industry the real value in energy management. The bottom line is Noveo has shown us the way to increase profits even in rough economic times
Energy audit/management companies, recommend EcoHood as the first step towards
energy efficiency with a fast and continuous Return on Investment.
It was so obvious that energy was being needlessly wasted during the times throughout
the day when food was being prepared for cooking, but the big surprise was the
increased comfort in the kitchen.”
"The exhaust fans on the kitchen equipment are equipped with variable drive motors that are
controlled by the Noveo EcoHood sensors to determine the rate of the fan speed. As the demand increases, the sensors react automatically. When equipment is not in full use, the exhaust fans run at only a fraction of their speed thus saving energy by less heated or conditioned air being emitted from the building while still maintaining proper air quality. "
Our installation technicians were impressed with the ease of installation
and our customers are very happy with ease of operation. Our customers
have also noticed a significant reduction in energy costs over a short period of
time and the payback will be very quick.
