Ultrafine particles (UFP) were measured every minute in 50 randomly selected Edmonton homes per season for 7 consecutive days in winter and summer 2010. Mean indoor number concentrations of 9500 (SE 800) cm3 were about 40% higher than mean outdoor concentrations of 6700 (SE 200) cm3. Winter mean values were higher than summer means by about 10% (indoor) and 20% (outdoor). A major indoor source was cooking. The mean deposition rate was 0.84 (SE 0.03) h1. Mean air exchange rates were 0.30 (SE 0.01) h1 in winter and 0.50 (SE 0.03) h1 in summer.
