Does a basement kitchen require a extractor fan?


Hi,

We recently bought a house with a basement apartment, there's no extractor fan in the kitchen (there is one in the bathroom). We are about to rent the apartment but i worry we need to install a extractor fan. Is this necessary or required? I live in Canada.

thanks

Call your local codes office. Even if it's not required, it's a very good idea. Cooking vapors are a source of a lot of poor indoor air quality.
