Commercial Exhaust Fans Installations

Commercial exhaust fans help to clear the air by removing airborne grease, combustion products, fumes, smoke, heat, and steam. This is done through evacuating the air and filtration. By installing a commercial exhaust fan system, you can maintain air quality levels in your facility while increasing the efficiency of other equipment.

Commercial exhaust fans are available in various sizes and styles to suit any space or application. Depending on your needs, you can choose from direct drive units that use powerful motors for maximum airflow, belt drive systems for quieter operation, or backward-inclined fans for the most efficient air movement. Additionally, many commercial exhaust fans come with integrated humidification systems to help maintain ideal humidity levels in your facility.

Upblast exhaust fan installation

Upblast exhaust fans are an excellent choice for any commercial space looking to maintain high air quality standards. It provides the best energy efficiency and robust performance while reducing noise levels and improving indoor air quality. Upblast exhaust fans are designed to meet the requirements of commercial applications such as restaurants, kitchens, hospitals, schools, offices, and more. With proper installation on your roof and ongoing scheduled maintenance, these fans can provide long-term, reliable performance.

Commercial kitchens often utilise exhaust hoods in combination with fire suppression devices to ensure that fumes from a grease fire are properly vented and the fire is extinguished quickly. A commercial vent hood may also be combined with a fresh air fan that draws in exterior air and circulates it with the cooking fumes. The mixture is then drawn out by the hood, leaving your kitchen smelling fresh.

If you are looking for advice on how to choose the right-sized upblast exhaust fan for your roof space, or if you’re looking to have one installed across Sydney, give the team at Finnley Electrical a call today. We can install popular upblast exhaust fan types including:

  • Belt drive upblast exhaust fans

  • Direct drive upblast exhaust fans

We can also install a wide range of other types of exhaust fans for other areas of your home or building, including your bathroom, laundry and toilet.

Commercial exhaust fan installation considerations

The installation of a commercial exhaust fan system requires careful planning and professional expertise. You need to assess the size of your space and what type of environment you are trying to create. From there, you can begin to determine the best fan system for your facility and how it should be positioned within the space. Professional installation is also critical when it comes to commercial exhaust fans, as this will ensure that the system functions correctly and that it meets all New South Wales electrical codes and regulations. In summary, you want to make sure you consider the following before installing a commercial exhaust fan in your roof:

  • What location in the roof will provide optimal performance?

  • Are there supporting beams that will allow the exhaust fan to be correctly balanced? This is important to ensure the fan can draw air properly.

  • What size exhaust fan do I need to correctly serve the space it’s being installed in?

  • What are the NSW safety regulations that need to be adhered to?

Frequently Asked Questions About Commercial Exhaust Fan Installation

How do you install a commercial exhaust fan?

When it comes to commercial exhaust fans, professional installation is critical to ensure they are functioning correctly and meeting New South Wales codes and regulations. Here is a summary of the main steps involved:

  1. Disconnect the electricity.
  2. If you have an existing fan, remove it from the roof curb.
  3. Install the new fan on the roof curb, using any necessary mounting hardware.
  4. Securely connect the electric wiring to power source and to the appropriate switch or timer.
  5. Make sure that all motor connections are tight.
  6. Check local codes and make sure your installation meets all requirements.
  7. Verify the proper operation of the fan by turning it on and off.
  8. Install a rain cover or other weather protection to protect the fan from water and debris.
  9. Inspect regularly for any signs of damage or corrosion, and replace any faulty parts.

What exhaust fan is best for commercial kitchen?

When it comes to commercial kitchens, a belt-driven upblast exhaust fan is typically the best option. These fans are designed for quieter operation than direct drive units and can move more air with less energy. Additionally, many commercial exhaust fans come with integrated humidification systems to help maintain ideal humidity levels in your kitchen. If your kitchen cooks with oil, fat, grease, or with a wood-burning stove, then an upblast fan is your best choice.

Do commercial exhaust fans need to be ducted?

Yes, most commercial exhaust fans will require ducting in order to vent the air effectively. Ductwork can be made of metal, fiberglass, or plastic materials and should be installed by a professional for optimal results. Properly sized ducts are essential for efficient operation of your fan system and should not be overlooked when planning your installation.

How long does a commercial exhaust fan last?

The average lifespan of a commercial exhaust fan is around 10 years. However, this can vary depending on the type and quality of fan you choose as well as how often it is used and properly maintained. Regular inspection and replacement of any faulty parts are essential for keeping your fan running in top condition for years to come.
