My husband loves to cook.
- Between the two of us, he’s definitely the one who would be more likely to be a chef.
He’s pretty good at cooking, but the problem with that is that he loves to make greasy things like fried chicken and fries. He’s constantly cooking things in the kitchen that create grease and smoke. It really brings down the quality of the indoor air quality in our house. The ventilation system that’s above our stove helps to remove smoke, moisture, and stinky odors from the cooking area in the kitchen. The ventilation system is supposed to help improve the indoor air quality in your hour, as well. A good ventilation system in your kitchen is really important to get rid of odors like all of the ones that my husband creates with his greasy cooking. The air filters trap grease and oil from your cooking projects, and the air filters should be changed out often or cleaned in order to make them more functional. If you don’t clean the air filters enough, then you’re going to end up with trapped odors and bad smells, which is what’s happening at our house. I think at this point, we are going to have an HVAC technician come out and clean all of our ventilation ducts professionally. Not only that, but we’re probably going to have to change the air filters and maybe even install a whole home air purification system. I keep telling my husband that if he’s going to keep cooking this way, an air purifier might be our only hope for our air quality!
