Radon Testing Pricing

The average cost of a home radon test is about $173.60. This rates includes all of the materials and equipment required to measure the indoor radon levels of a typical four-bedroom home. If the test results indicate that the radon levels are dangerously high, you will be responsible for the additional costs associated with installing a radon mitigation system.

There are a few factors that may increase the cost of this service. For instance, the cost may increase if you live in a very large home (over 2,000 square feet). If the radon test is an add-on service to a general home inspection, it may be somewhat less expensive.

Why do we test for radon?

There are several reasons that you might be interested in having your home tested for radon.

1. Maybe, you recently purchased a DIY test kit and you want to confirm the results with a professional. Although do-it-yourself testing is a good starting point, you can never be too sure. Hiring a certified radon inspector is the best way to determine if your home is safe.

2. In many cases, a radon test is conducted as part of a real estate transaction. If you are buying a home, you may request to have a radon testing done as part of the home inspection. In some cases, your mortgage lender may require the testing. If the radon levels in the home are too high, the seller may cover the costs of installing a mitigation system.

3. Has your neighbor recently installed a radon mitigation system? Many homeowners decide to test their homes after a neighbor discovered that the radon levels in their home were too high. It’s important to note that this does not guarantee that your home will have radon problems.

4. Are radon problems common in your county? The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) publishes a map that indicates which areas of the United States are more likely to experience problems with radon. The United States is separated into three radon zones: Zone 1, 2, and 3. As a general rule, Zone 1 has the highest potential for elevated radon levels, whereas Zone 3 has the lowest potential. However, it’s important to note that this map is provided as a general guideline. Homes with potentially dangerous radon levels can be found in each zone and in each state.

5. It’s possible that you are just worried about the health and safety of your family. Prolonged exposure to high levels of radon can have very serious health consequences. New home and older homes are equally vulnerable. Additionally, radon levels can fluctuate over time. For this reason, your radon inspector may recommend short-term and long-term testing.
