UPDATED TALKING POINTS ON GAS STOVES AND INDOOR AIR QUALITY

Earlier this month, major media outlets reported on a study from Stanford University linking gas stoves with unsafe levels of nitrogen dioxide (NO2) emissions. Studies of this nature are likely to continue, and PERC is committed to providing accurate information in response.

The bottom line remains the same: the act of cooking itself reduces indoor air quality, regardless of the energy that powers the stove. Proper ventilation using a hood and even opening a window is the best solution to maintaining indoor air quality.
