The paper gives results of a series of emission tests on a residential oil furnace to determine emissions from two types of burners. A number of analyses were performed on the emissions, including total mass, filterable particulate, total extractable organics, and mutagenicity. Preliminary results are also presented on oil furnaces tested by the EPA in Roanoke, VA, during the 1988-89 winter under the Integrated Air Cancer Project field study. These data are compared to data in the literature.
