The article discusses chamber studies of four unvented kerosene space heaters to assess emissions of total particle, sulfate, and acidic aerosol. The heaters tested represented four burner designs currently in use by the public. Kerosene space heaters are a potential source of fine particles (= or < 2.5 micrometer diameter), sulfate, and acidic aerosol indoors. Fine particle concentrations in houses in which the heaters are used may be increased in excess of 20 micrograms/m3 over background levels. Sulfate and acidic aerosol levels in such houses could exceed average and peak outdoor concentrations. Maltuned heaters could produce exceptionally high levels of all air contaminants measured.
