Radon enters your home through cracks in the foundation and can become a health risk to you and your loved ones. This naturally occurring radioactive gas can be found in any home. The age or neighborhood of your home doesn't matter and there is no way to predict where it will turn up. In fact, one in three homes in Utah have high radon levels.  The only way to determine if your home has high radon is to have your home tested. Most homeowners first thought is, what will that cost? And if there is a problem, what is the cost of radon reduction?

Cost of Radon Testing

Radon testing can be done in a few different ways. You can purchase some DIY kits for between $15-$40. However, because this is such a serious health concern, it is recommended you get certified results. A home inspector or some services may charge anywhere between $100-$200 to have your home tested. But, guess what, Utah Radon Services actually offers free certified radon testing. What's the angle? There isn't one. 1 in 3 homes in Utah have high radon and not nearly enough have been tested. Utah Radon Services is set up to do thousands of tests each year and have been able to cut the cost dramatically by purchasing tests in bulk. This means testing doesn't have to cost you a thing.

Cost of Radon Reduction

So now you have tested your house for free, the concern is now do you "safe" levels of radon? Unfortunately, there are no "safe" levels of radon. However, the Environmental Protection Agency has determined levels above 2 pCi/l can affect your health, and anything above 4 should be reduced immediately. So what is the cost of having a radon reduction system installed in your house?

There is no flat rate for radon reduction (or mitigation). Each home can come with a variety of challenges that may change the pricing.  However, this is can be done affordably. A state average is around $1500 although if you have a craw space it could be more.
