Difficult retrofits

It is one thing to retrofit a range hood in a single family building with the stove against an outside wall. Conditions will often be more difficult than that. How do you retrofit a range hood into an apartment in a multi-storey building? In a house, what happens if the kitchen is set up to have the cooking surfaces against an inner wall? We have considered suggestions such as tying the range hood ducting into existing exhaust ducting (e.g. a large bathroom fan) or running ducting through a…See More

Kitchen Ventilation

In many homes, cooking is the largest indoor source of air pollutants. Exposures can be higher in the kitchen compared to other places in the home. We can still enjoy the many benefits of cooking by installing and using range hoods that vent to the outdoors. This group will promote discussion about how to select effective range hoods, strategies to improve the efficiency of existing ventilation systems for kitchen pollutants, and what to do in homes that don’t have ducting already installed…See More

"There is a scientific paper that Tom Phillips cited where the researchers are looking at the effects of hood design and flow rate on the capture ratio (how effectively the hood keeps pollutants out of indoor air). Here is the paper: Exposure due to…"
