The expense and inconvenience of tests are radon myths that keep people from having their homes tested. Thankfully, radon tests do not cost an arm and a leg. Not to mention that these tests take at most a week to conduct with most of it spent waiting.
For about $15, you can buy a short-term radon test to test the air in your home. Over the course of two to seven days, you can test the air for radon levels with very little inconvenience to you. After the test completes, you will have a rough idea on the levels and can determine whether you need a more extensive test performed. These short-term tests can be performed as often as you like for about the cost of lunch.
