Kitchen Heating and Ventilation
From DT Online
A certain amount of heat will come from food preparation, but an additional, controllable form will be required to keep the temperature comfortable and safe to work in.
Radiators and electric heaters will take up some space and need to be carefully positioned.
Air in kitchens quickly becomes contaminated during cooking and washing, therefore adequate ventilation should be built into the room. Windows, cooker canopies and extraction systems are all possibilities.
UK Building Regulations require that any new kitchen should be provided with a mechanical extract fan to reduce condensation and remove smells. The necessary performance of these extract fans is normally measured in litres per second (l/s) and for kitchens it is 30l/s if placed over the hob and 60l/s if place elsewhere.
