In the age of COVID-19, indoor air quality is more important than ever before. The National Library of Medicine (NIH) conducted a study that found roughly 90% of Americans spend the majority of their time indoors. Meaning, the quality of the air we breathe inside our homes is of great importance to our health and wellness. One part of this story that most of us never think about is how cooking can affect indoor air quality. But just because we don’t think about it, doesn’t mean that it doesn’t exist. Indoor air quality testing reveals a wealth of gaseous byproducts that are emitted into our home’s environment through cooking with gas. The Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) released a report, pouring over two decades’ worth of peer-reviewed studies, about how gas stoves may be exposing Americans to indoor air pollution at levels that are considered illegal by outdoor standards. That should be alarming to everyone. Let’s take a closer look at indoor air quality testing and how cooking can affect indoor air quality.
