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

Don -

Hope you are doing well and enjoying life!

I am working on an IAQ program for existing homes with the EPA and wondered if I could get you to take a look at a short section on combustion safety.  I think it's covered, but I would welcome your input.

Thanks.  Paul
