    Kitchen heat load


    Can u please advice whether to consider the heat loads which is coming under a proper Kitchen hood, while selecting the AC equipment.

    I am working on a design of a small size take-away restaurant outlet,(420 sq. feet area).
    Excluding the burners under the hood, the HAP load estimate is coming to 3 Tons, 1400 CFM.

    But, if i am including the burners, then it goes to 7.5 Tons,4400 CFM.

    OR, only a portion of the burner heat load to be considered?

    Any leads will be highly appreciated

    Also in most areas of the country makeup air is required. That will reduce the heat load and save on A/C tonnage

    Isnt a 3 ton system 1200 cfm, unless its heat pump. Heat pumps are usually 450 cfm per ton. And 1400 cfm makes 466 cfm per ton.
