    Radon is a naturally occurring gas. Albeit radioactive (you receive a lot of natural radiation from foods via the soil and solar radiation from the sun) most of the time the levels of radon are not high enough to be of concern. And even if they were because they are from natural sources such as the phenomenon of temperature inversion (the trapping of gases due to difference in temperature) there isn’t much you can do about it bc it would be your whole area like neighborhood or city wide. Just my thoughts before you waste money on a product that will probably just stress you out for no reason.

      Christine, radon exposure is the leading cause of non-smoking lung cancer. Levels accumulate indoors, increasing individual risk. If you identify a building with high levels, you can mitigate the risk through installation of units and airing out the building. And yes, some people move as is their choice once they know their individual risk levels.

      That being said, many states offer free, disposable kits to test for radon so this expensive unit is probably more helpful for someone who owns multiple properties or works in a property industry.

      there is absolutely something you can do about high levels of radon in your house and it should be taken very seriously! I just purchased a house that tested at over 4 times the safe level. I hired a company to install a mitigation system in the basement to vent it outside of the house(cost was around $900). with that being said, I live in an area of michigan that has known pockets of high radon levels. I dont think it’s something that everyone needs to worry about, but if you live in an area that has problems, I highly recommend doing your research!

    As a licensed Realtor in Iowa, I strongly urge the buyers I work with to have a professional radon test when they are purchasing a home. In my area this normally costs around $100. If the levels are high, radon mitigation costs anywhere between $900-$1200. I personally know of someone who passed away from lung cancer who was not a smoker and it was found they had high levels of radon in their basement. Radon is caused from decaying uranium in the ground. It is odorless and you don’t know it’s there without testing your home. I did have a client who was selling their home and had a portable in home radon device and the readings they had were very different from the professional radon test the buyer paid for. I recommend professional testing only for accurate test results.
