Abstract: Combustion by-products are a major source of indoor air pollution and have been measured in homes at levels above typical outdoor concentrations, and at levels which approach or exceed outdoor air quality standards. This paper provides an overview of the factors which influence, and methods which mitigate, the impacts of combustion devices on indoor air quality. This paper focuses on three major combustion pollutants: NO//2, CO, and respirable suspended particles (RSP).
