Radon Testing

There are several radon testing methods, most of which are fairly inexpensive, easy to use and minimally invasive. Alpine Building Performance uses a small electronic radon testing machine which is placed in the lowest living space of a house(basement or lowest floor) and takes an air sample every hour for 2 days. The machines require no extra input or maintenance by the customer and provides an instant reading when picked up by an Alpine Building Performance technician.

 If the radon levels detected by the tests come back high, a radon mitigation system can be installed by certified contractors and usually costs $1500 dollars or less.
