The key component in a radon test is the measurement device.
The accuracy of the monitor can have a big impact on the test results.
Our monitors have an accuracy of 7% compared to 20% used by other testers.
A continuous radon monitor provides data on how radon levels vary with time.
Modern units contain environmental sensors for tampering evidence.

As a certified radon tester, Tom knows how to set up equipment for accurate results.
AARST requires monitors be calibrated and cross-checked as part of a Quality Assurance Program.
Radon tests simulate winter "closed-house" conditions.
This is difficult to achieve in other seasons.
Opening windows and doors or moving the monitor can affect measurements.
We increase compliance by using tamper evident equipment.
Often, interference is accidental because the occupant simply forgot the test was in progress.
We remind occupants that a test is in progress with door handle signs and information cards.
