Radon FAQs

What is radon?  

Radon is a tasteless, odourless and invisible radioactive gas that results from decaying uranium, and is a leading cause of lung cancer. It is prevalent in many homes in Calgary and area.

How do I know where to place the test?

The kit will come with proper instructions or if you buy the test kit from us we will install it for you.  Choose a space in the lowest level of your home (basement or main floor) with a room where you spend 4 hours per day or more (bedroom, office, family room).  Health Canada has provided guidance on the proper location with minimum distances from walls, windows and other objects.  The directions included with the radon test should be clear to guide you on this.

How long should be test for? 

Long term testing is the most accurate: 3-12 months.

My new home already has a radon pipe in the basement.  Do I still need to be tested for radon?

You still need to test for radon.  New homes could have either a radon rough-in stub pipe or a radon rough-in extended pipe.  Both of these pipes are intended to make reducing radon easier once the home occupant has tested for radon and determined if radon reduction is required.

My neighbour tested and their levels are low. Should I bother testing? 
Yes. Levels can be drastically different from house to house. There are many factors that influence radon levels whether radon is getting into your specific home. They include but are not limited to: Weather (wind, rain & air pressure) influences homes differently depending on yard grading, height and airtightness. Inside your home high CFM exhausts, unbalanced HRV/ERV’s, gas vented appliances, foundation cracks and gaps, sub slab soil conditions and temperature of home all affect radon.
