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

"See list of Easy Ways to Reduce Exposure (and in some cases, toxicity) in the ROCIS Range Hood best practices guide and the NAPHN 18 slide show. Cooking outside also helps keep the house cooler in the summer, but can add to outdoor air pollution and…"

Linda Wigington replied to Don Fugler's discussion Choosing a range hood in the group Kitchen Ventilation
"One of our ROCIS cohort participants did that. Their gas stove is on an island. They put the exhaust behind and slightly above the stove.  I tested it with a flow hood, and it was a pretty high flow rate - 500 CFM as I recall.  The d…"

Don Fugler replied to Linda Wigington's discussion Good Eating with Reduced Cooking Emissions in the group Kitchen Ventilation
"What we did see, anecdotally, in that 150 house sample is that range hood use did correspond with lower indoor particle peaks, as measured by the Dylos instrument. We did not have enough of a controlled experiment to do quantification. "

Don Fugler replied to Linda Wigington's discussion Good Eating with Reduced Cooking Emissions in the group Kitchen Ventilation
"I found that I was less likely to prompt a large spike when I started the pan on medium heat rather than high. It did delay the cooking somewhat and I wonder if I was seeing reduced particles due to this delay rather than any absolute emission…"

Have only very limited data from one project.  For 3 months, electric use is about 20Jean%20May-July%202011%20Electricity%20Use.docx% more than predicted and 38% less than estimated pre-retrofit.  However, it's been a very mild summer. see attached.
