Radon Test Equipment: Why Would I Want a Digital Radon Detector for My Home?

When most people think of a digital radon detector they tend to think of a piece of radon test equipment used by a measurement professional. This type of digital radon detector is typically used during a radon inspection that is being conducted as part of a home sale.

A professional grade digital radon detector, sometimes called a continuous radon monitor (CRM), usually has most of these features:
  • The professional digital radon detector is capable of printing the test results out in a paper report type format.
  • The digital radon detector is sensitive enough to print out accurate results on an hourly basis.
  • The professional digital radon detector not only measures radon gas, but also measures other environmental conditions such as ambient temperature, barometric pressure and relative humidity.
  • Most professional radon test equipment will come into secular equilibrium within 2 to 4 hours. This is necessary because most real estate radon inspections only last for 2 days.
In general, a professional digital radon detector will cost at least $1000 and some will cost many thousands of dollars. A professional digital radon detector requires regular calibration.

Radon poisoning sounds so awful. It would be worth the money for me to install radon detectors, so that my family and I wouldn't have to deal with this terrible illness. I didn't know they had to be calibrated so often.
