🌬️ Cooking with your range hood on?

Your range hood removes harmful moisture and contaminates from your living space.

Why it matters: Cooking is often the number one cause of air pollution inside our homes. 😱

  • Releasing small particles from cooking oils (VOCs)
  • To carbon monoxide and nitrogen dioxide from gas ranges
  • To formaldehyde released from cabinets and countertops that heat up while we cook

The bottom line: Run your range hood on high every time you cook and for a few minutes after to improve your Indoor Air Quality (IAQ).

  • Cook on the back burners for best air movement.
