All radon tests are used to understand how our home environment influences our radon exposure.
With your home radon result, we are able to
Better protect Canadians from the harmful effects of radon gas exposure
Understand why certain properties have higher or lower radon compared to others
Work towards solutions that mean lower radon for everyone
Determine what behaviours modify our radon exposure
Determine the best pathway forward for best radon testing in Western Canada
Our research has determined a number of interesting facts. For example, we have found that newer Western Canadian homes have higher radon. We are currently working to understand why. We speculate this is due to much larger square footage of newer properties, and tighter air seal.
18% (or one in six) of homes in Western Canada tested exceeded the 200Bq/m3 Health Canada maximum acceptable radon limit guideline.
Exceptionally high radon readings were observed across the region, all neighbourhoods are at risk. No areas contained homes all below Health Canada guidelines.
Newer homes built in the past 25 years had 31.5% higher average radon levels compared to older homes built prior to 1992.
In Southern Alberta, radon mitigation is highly effective, so there is a straight forward solution to the problem for those homeowners at risk.
Thank you for your interest in Evict Radon. Participation in the 2018/19 study is now closed and Evict Radon kits are now unavailable for purchase.
Extensive research indicates that radon testing is most accurate during the winter months. Because of this, we only accept research participants and sell Evict Radon test kits from October 1 – January 31st. If you wish to join our 2019/2020 Evict Radon research study, please enter your email below to be added to our waitlist. We will contact you when kits become available for purchase in October 2019.
