Abstract
The U.S. EPA's Integrated Air Cancer Project (IACP) conducted a field study in Boise, Idaho during November 1986 - February 1987. As part of the study, samples were collected in ten pairs of homes, one with and one without a woodburning appliance. Paired homes were located near each other and concurrent sampling was conducted inside each home and outside the home not burning wood. A different pair of homes was sampled each week during the study. Averaged data from all homes showed total non-methane organic carbon (NMOC) and total carbonyls to be higher inside either home type relative to outside. Average formaldehyde concentrations were slightly higher inside homes with woodstoves, but several non-woodburning homes had concentrations exceeding many of the woodburning homes. Benzene concentrations inside homes seemed related to mobile sources and were similar to outdoor levels.
