Other Safety Information

Some organizations and media outlets have recently raised questions about the impacts of residential natural gas cooking on indoor air quality (IAQ). While many of the sources cited in these articles agree that more research is needed before drawing definitive conclusions, electrification advocates are using these reports to drive public policy that would limit or outright ban the use of natural gas.

Gas Technology Institute Special Report released in Fall of 2022 tested the emissions resulting from cooking with different fuel sources and concluded that “cooking emissions were more a function of the cooking vessel and food product cooked than energy source.”
