Subvention pour une hotte à débit variable (Variabe-Speed Hood Grant)

By mmuise

Thanks to its control system, a variable-speed hood vents only the air volume required to remove kitchen fumes and grease. Énergir offers a grant for the installation of a variable-speed hood system in existing buildings. With the variable flow hood, you could reduce your energy consumption by 35% to 40%.*

Comments on Funding:

Funding takes the form of a fixed amount of $3,350 in addition to the variable amount of $0.45 per CFM (cubic feet per minute) of the exhaust system.
The financial assistance may not exceed 50% of the actual purchase and installation costs of the variable speed hood or the control system.
