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.
