Abstract An exploratory study was performed to assess the semivolatile and nonvolatile organic-compound emissions from unvented kerosene space heaters. A well-tuned radiant heater and a maltuned convective heater were used for the study. Each heater was operated in a 27-cu m chamber with a prescribed on/off pattern. Organic compounds were collected on teflon-impregnated glass filters backed by XAD-2 resin and analyzed by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry. Pollutant source strengths were calculated using a mass-balance equation. The results show that kerosene heaters can emit polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), nitrated PAHs; alkyl benzenes; pentachlorophenol; phtalates; hydro naphthalenes; aliphatic hydrocarbons, alcohols, and ketones; and other organic compounds.
