While these by-products may simply sound like nuisances, studies have shown that cooking without proper ventilation is one cause of poor indoor air quality that can negatively affect your health. That's why the International Residential Code and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency strongly advise homeowners to install a vent hood to capture, filter, and then expel the fumes outside through a vent in an exterior wall or on the roof.
Every time an exhaust fan removes air from your house, an equal volume of air must enter. The air that enters cracks in a home’s envelope to replace air that is exhausted is called “makeup air.” Two trends affecting makeup air are causing increasing problems for homeowners: homes are getting tighter, and range-hood fans are getting more powerful.
Traditional window designs work for most homes but allowing yourself to think outside the box can really spark your creative ability and pay off in the long run. Instead of using a cookie-cutter treatment sometimes using everyday materials in unexpected ways can change the style of your kitchen from looking like a affordable feature to an expensive one without breaking your bank. We put together a few ideas for kitchen window treatments that might help you make your decision.
