Berkeley Lab scientists have spent decades investigating how everyday activities affect indoor air quality. We study pollutant sources in homes and develop effective controls. Our recent study found that cooking without proper kitchen ventilation often produces air pollutant levels in homes that exceed outdoor air quality standards.
We need your help to learn more. Berkeley Lab’s Range Hood Roundup is gathering information about cooking patterns and kitchen ventilation in U.S. homes. Please join our science team by completing a short survey. We will use the information you provide – along with data from thousands of others across the country – to develop recommendations for improving indoor air quality and health through better building codes and product standards.
