Worse than Burning the Bird

by

There are plenty of things to consider for Thanksgiving, like making sure you  thaw out the bird properly, and cook it at the right temperatures.  And some guests may have food allergies as well so it’s always good to ask.

Food aside, there are other concerns, and ventilation is an important one. People need it and so do homes.  Over the holidays it can get stuffy with so many people visiting, but if your home is that way without guests, you suffer from high humidity or poor air quality, maybe it’s time to do something about it.   An assessment is a good place to start.  It’s nice to have ventilation systems in place all the time not just for the holidays.

One specific kind of ventilation, exhaust fans in kitchens, help us by removing smoke and odors, and especially if you’re cooking with gas, carbon monoxide.  While it’s not smart to use a grill inside, most people forget that their gas stove is a source for Carbon Monoxide; cooking a turkey in a hot stove for hours without exhausting the kitchen could put your family at risk for CO poisoning, and that is worse than burning the bird!

Thanks,
