International Green Construction Code
references the same standards as detailed
in 90.1-2010 and IES Standard 189.1-2011
along with the requirement in LEED v4
EA Credit 1. In 2014, California's Building
Energy Efficiency Standard (Title 24)
adopted similar language for compliance
and the U.S. Department of Energy set a
compliance mandate by September 27,
2016, across the United States.

Factors in determining

colder climates will garner greater
heating savings.
By combining most of these factors,
the financial investment in DCKV
increases in appeal.

Implementation of
demand control kitchen
ventilation systems
DCKV systems can be implemented
into commercial kitchens either during
the new construction process or via
retrofit into existing systems. Explained

below are the important considerations
to factor in when using control strategies
in both scenarios.

New construction
When specifying a DCKV system,
open communication between the
foodservice designers and mechanical
engineering team is essential to ensure
the kitchen ventilation system meets
all applicable codes and life safety, and
functional performance standards on
commissioning. As buildings become

To determine whether these systems
can save money, a facility manager must
not only recognize how energy intensive
the commercial kitchen space is, but
also understand the key factors that
contribute to accelerated energy savings
and financial paybacks. The following
four factors are the primary drivers in
energy savings:

"With the AcornVac system, if a physician
needs a different setup, the infrastructure
is such that moving a sink from one side
of the room to the other is probably an
evening job."

SUCCESS IN SEATTLE

Location

The Polyclinic, serving the greater Seattle area, wanted to
open a clinic in a building that didn't have the plumbing
infrastructure to accommodate their medical requirements.
With AcornVac, The Polyclinic was able to:

* Total fan horsepower: The higher
the fan horsepower (HP), the more
opportunity for kWh savings. Five or
more HP is ideal.
* Run time: Longer facility run times will
reduce payback and increase savings.
Twelve or more hours is ideal.
* Utility cost: Higher electrical and
heating costs will lead to shorter
paybacks. More than $0.07 is ideal.
* Geographic location: The more
extreme the temperature ranges are,
the bigger the effect on heating and
cooling savings. Tropical climates
will yield more cooling savings while

* Easily route water & waste piping to accommodate any clinic layout
* Provide a facility that can quickly adapt to changes in patient and
physician needs
* Deliver a simple, low-cost and reliable plumbing solution
All with little to no disruption to the clinic's daily operations.
AcornVac delivers simple, low-cost and reliable
plumbing solutions - a cure for all space planning
& plumbing challenges.
