The air in your home can have higher levels of pollutants than the air outside. Installing and using vent fans in the bathrooms and a range hood in the kitchen is a great way to clear the air and improve the indoor air quality in your home.

Make sure the fans are vented to the outside and cleaned frequently. Watch this video to find out more.

Ensuring that your home has proper ventilation is an important part of keeping it healthy, because the air inside your home can have two to five times higher levels of pollutants than the air outside.

To reduce exposure to harmful indoor pollutants, the EPA recommends the use of exhaust fans that are vented to the outdoors in the bathroom and a range hood in the kitchen. Make sure that they are cleaned frequently, too, so they do their job effectively.
