When do you need Makeup Air

If your kitchen range hood system capable of exhausting 400 cfm of air or more, you need a makeup system. Its rate should be approximately equal to the exhaust air rate.

The 2015 IRC® states that "such makeup air systems shall be equipped with a means of closure and shall be automatically controlled to start and operate simultaneously with the exhaust system".

Advantages of Makeup Air System

  • Automatic, infinitely modulating air flow in proportion to the exhaust
  • Particulate matter is filtered from the outdoor air before it is delivered to the home
  • Since it is fan-forced, makeup air can be ducted to where it can be most suitably delivered to the home
  • Cold outdoor air can be tempered with optional MUAH heater kits
  • MUAS can be set up by the installer for a variety of pressure schemes: slightly negative, slightly positive, or balanced
  • MUAS provides the EXACT amount of air needed - no more, no less
  • Complies with the building code
