DOE Supports Research On Improved Air Quality In The Kitchen
Kitchen contaminants can compromise a home’s indoor air quality (IAQ) and consequently, the health of the occupants. The U.S. Department of Energy is taking steps to improve IAQ by supporting research aimed at creating an integrated, balanced whole-house ventilation system where kitchen exhaust ventilation solutions are consistently rather than erratically implemented. A report published by the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory identifies several strategies for encouraging wider adoption of effective kitchen-exhaust ventilation.
