Fume hoods are literally huge energy spenders, with each one consuming more energy than three average homes in the US. Depending on climate and system design, estimated energy costs for fume hoods range up to US$9000 annually. The cost of running more than three of this device is certainly not a joke. Video below will show how Esco addressed this problem with the engineering of Frontier® Acela™, a high performance low flow fume hood.
Based on the video shown above, here are the hard facts:
By using Frontier® Acela™ fume hood in your lab, it is estimated for the exhaust volume to be reduced by 58%. This translates to an annual savings of US$ 5,600.
