Indoor exposure to particulate air pollution associated with residential wood combustion was studied in five typical Northwest homes during May, 1980. Particulate mass and polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbon (PNA) species were measured in each home prior to, and during wood appliance use to determine the degree to which indoor particulate mass and PNA concentrations increased. Air infiltration rate information typical of the homes included in the survey were obtained from the literature. Records of wood use and climatic conditions during the indoor sampling period were maintained. Experimental results are compared to other indoor air pollution studies on residential wood combustion and interpreted in relation to typical wood use during cold weather periods associated with greater wood burning activity. Program conclusions relative to appliance operations, design and maintenance are discussed.
