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
What can an occupant do to reduce cooking emissions, regardless of whether or not they have a ducted range hood? We have over 150 families who have participated in the ROCIS Low Cost Monitoring Project (LCMP), and as such, had the opportunity to get immediate feedback on household particle counts as they cooked. Chime in with what worked, and what did not.See More
