Abstract The paper gives results from Phase I of a three-phase study to characterize and model contaminant emissions from unvented kerosene space heaters. In Phase I (a screening phase), emissions from 12 heaters, covering a range of design types and Btu ratings, were evaluated during start-up, at three steady-state operating conditions (normal, low, and high flame settings), and after shutdown. Aerosol mass, size distribution, extractable mass, bioassay, trace element content, and conventional gas (CO, NOx, etc.) measurements were made for all the heaters tested, while volatile and semivolatile organics measurements were made for a subsample.
