Welcome to today’s 1:5:10:365 Tip for becoming a better steward for our home and planet.

1:5:10:130 EcoTip: If you are going to be doing more than a few radon tests or know that your building has a radon problem, you may want to purchase an electronic monitor. Family Safety Product’s monitors look similar to a smoke detector or carbon monoxide detector, but are set to record radon gas.

 Additional Information

The Safety Siren -ProSeries 3 radon detector can be purchased (if you shop around) for about $100.00. It requires at least 48 hours of exposure to provide the first reading (but – so do all the other types) and then averages the readings from then on. You can clear the unit and move it to different parts of your home.

I like this system for buildings where you know you have a radon problem and want to be alerted if the mitigation system has stopped working.
