Default Recommended Radon Equipment

I am purchasing Radon testing equipment for the first time and looking for recommendations. I will be performing inspections in Middle Tennessee, where Radon levels are high and anticipate Radon inspections on almost all of my home inspections. Thanks for the help!!

Default Recommended Radon Equipment

The company I use to do my radon testing uses Radstar monitors. If I ever move back to Nashville and start doing my own testing again, that's probably what I'd buy.

I use Radstar monitors and am pleased with them.

We have 9 Radstars...best service..and the rent option to get started is the way to go. 3 years ago, we only rented 1 unit and owned one. They pay for themselves quickly. Price the service right...not too high and you will sell a ton.

Air-Chek www.radon.com

No cost of monitors, calibration, risk of theft/breakage, etc. Use red ones for RE transactions, cost of $8 each, use two for each test. Overnight them to North Carolina for testing. You then get a great explanation of the results via email for your client; not just a machine printing out a bunch of numbers.
