But, the most accurate test is a long term test which lasts 90+ days. The longer test will give a more accurate AVERAGE level under normal living conditions in the property
Mass Radon
Answer: There is no significant difference.
Explanation: This seems to be a matter of opinion, I haven't seen true data in my testing to say it's a certain time of year. Due to it being a gas, the barometric pressure can dictate the levels. If your performing a long term test, I recommend doing it mid spring or mid fall. Testing during those times gives a balanced test in my opinion.
