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…"

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

Good Eating with Reduced Cooking Emissions

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

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.
