The report describes Phase 1 of a two-phase investigation to: (1) further optimize the design of a prototype low-emission residential furnace that was derived from earlier EPA-funded studies; and (2) obtain field verification of its emission and performance characteristics. It gives details of: (1) analytical and experimental studies to optimize the furnace design and its nominal operating ranges, and to ensure conformance with appropriate safety standards; (2) planning all aspects of the Phase 2 field test investigation, including selection of test locales and host homes, provision of local installation and service support, and all logistic and scheduling considerations; and (3) studies of the integrated furnace's capabilities to function properly with such alternate fuels as natural gas and methanol. The prototype furnace, with a cast iron firebox, met all emission goals (i.e., NOx less than 0.65 g/kg, CO less than 1.0 g/kg, UHC less than 0.1 g/kg, and a Bacharach smoke number less than 1) at low excess air (20%). Based on climatic characteristics and available support services, Albany and Boston were selected for field verification of furnace performance.
