Radon Testing

Testing is the only way to determine whether a home has elevated radon levels. Radon levels are affected by the soil composition under and around the house, the ease with which radon enters the house through cracks in the floors, walls, foundation (including sump pits), and the home's insulation. Radon levels can be higher in homes that are well insulated and tightly sealed. Adjacent homes can have different indoor radon levels, making a neighbor's test result a poor predictor of radon risk. In addition, rain, snow, barometric pressure, and other influences can cause radon levels to vary from month to month or day to day, which is why both short- and long-term tests are available.

There are two types of test to determine radon levels in a home: short and long term. Short-term detectors measure radon levels anywhere between 2 days and a few months, depending on the device. Long-term tests determine the average concentration for more than three months. Because radon levels can vary by day or month, a long-term test is a better indicator of the average radon level.
