I have a fairly tight house, with a gas oven, and no outside connection for the range vent. The range is fairly new and I believe running pretty well.
Whenever we use the stove/oven, it elevates the CO in the house. In the 12 to 16 ppm range if just the stove top, or up to 25 or 30 ppm if the oven is used. (based on readings from our Kidde digital CO detectors).
We've gotten pretty good at opening windows, but that's a pain and not fun in the winter.
I want to run a vent duct from the range hood to the outside. Questions:
(1) Are daily doses of CO in the teens and periodic doses in the 20s levels to worry about?
(2) Is an outdoor venting range hood likely to solve the problem?
(3) Is this fan powered vent likely to create negative pressure problems for our gas furnace & gas water heater exhaust? That system current works properly based on the make-up air it gets passively from the crawl space.
