RADON GAS MONITORING DEVICE
Digital Continuous Radon Gas Monitoring:
As seen on TV, this is not like a single use radon test detection kit: this digital radon gas monitor for home testing is a continuous radon tester that performs continuous radon gas monitoring.
10 pci/liter is roughly equivalent to the risk of smoking 1/2-1 pack of cigarettes/day or having 500 chest x-rays/year.
10 pCi/L doesn’t seem to cause the EPA much concern, but from my research, that amount is as unhealthy as smoking. Or equivalent to about 2 chest xrays per day.
When in doubt, assume the indoor air quality is poor, and open the windows as much as possible. Check office buildings, schools, gyms and other places that trap indoor air pollution. The device takes 48 hours to measure and then starts beeping on the hour if over 4 pCI/L.
Epidemiological studies have shown a clear link between breathing high concentrations of radon and incidence of lung cancer. Thus, radon is considered a significant contaminant that affects indoor air quality worldwide. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, radon is the second most frequent cause of lung cancer, after cigarette smoking, causing 21,000 lung cancer deaths per year in the United States. About 2,900 of these deaths occur among people who have never smoked. While radon is the second most frequent cause of lung cancer, it is the number one cause among non-smokers, according to EPA estimates.
The clear, easily read digital radon level display shows short-term radon levels as well as long-term radon level averages.
Our EPA-approved Radon Gas Monitoring Device gives its first radon reading after 48 hours of radon gas sampling.
Radon gas in air or water is a health hazard resulting from uranium breaking down in soil. Exposure to radon can cause lung cancer. Continuous home radon monitoring is recommended in high radon areas or when radon mitigation systems are used. Radon gas levels change according to humidity and season.
