    First of all, welcome to the site.

    On the heater, they are not intending for inside. That said, I grew up with one at home and know they can kill your lungs. However, there may not be many options they have so do the best you can.

    On the other hand, you father has 100% of the control about whether he smokes or not. This is not a question, he needs to stop or you need to move somewhere safe. If people can kick heroin & meth, you father can quit. To refuse is saying his family is not worth it. Sorry if that is harsh, but the truth often is.

    I agree 100% about the Heaters and Smoking !!

    I can not stand to be in a room with a Kerosene heater, back in the early 90s
    they became popular , I bought one, I used it one night, I woke up so tight
    that I could barley breath.I never used it again.

    I will never be or go around smokers. In fact I just threw two
    people out of my house that refused to stop smoking in my basement.
    It has been 2 months now and my waking O2 sats have gone up. Even with
    the cold and dry heat in my house ( nat gas furnace ) <<they are vented .

    Smokers do not realize how bad they smell, I had a friend
    who smoked for 15 years, I stayed away when he smoked and never let him smoke in my car.. He quit and after he got
    his sense of Smell back and was around a smoker he would
    remark, " Did I Smell that Bad ! " Yes he did, just his
    nose was so full of all the Carcinogens He could not smell
    it.. So Your Father does Not Understand or Realize How
    bad it smells.

    Good Luck, you may want to try and have a talk with Your Father.

    Kerosene heaters are no good. We had one of those to heat the house when I was little. I don’t remember this but I sat on the heater and got 2nd degree burns on my butt! Yikes!

    All around bad thing to have in the house.
