Testing your home for radon is easy and inexpensive. You can choose to test your home using a short-term charcoal test; a long-term alpha track test or you may decide to hire a certified radon professional to run a tamper-proof test with a continuous electronic monitor.
There is no safe level of radon. However, the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) states that, if your test reveals that your home’s radon level is 4.0 pCi/L (picoCuries per liter of air) or above, fix it.
A radon gas removal/mitigation/remediation/abatement fan system not only offers protection from radon but also improves ventilation, providing your home with dryer, cleaner, healthier air. The cost of a system depends on the specific characteristics of each home, but a typical system costs between $1600 and $1900 to install.
