I lent the detector to my neighbor and he got a reading in the 300s on his top floor! Makes sense since his basement was in the 500s. All his quotes were $2400 so he bought all the stuff off Amazon and is installing it himself.

Wow - I didn't think this was really catching on, it's good to see so many people testing. We're up in Royal Oak and we tested our house last winter. We got a reading of 38 Bq/m3 which seems to be pretty good so we haven't done anything about it.

If we ever sell the place I guess we should advertise it as low radon!

^ yeah 38 is good. These mitigation companies usually guarantee to get it under 50 only.

We got something like 34, measured on the main floor for 6 months (November to April). It really depends on many factors.

when we built my parents house in BC we had to put down a special gravel and seal all holes in the vapor barrier before we could pour on top of it, all because of radon.

I plan to buy the pucks and run them over the next winter when the house is closed up. I missed the window this year.
My husband gets bronchitis quite a lot since we've lived in this house so I wonder if our levels are higher than they should be. I'm not saying the radon is a cause but every year, fall and spring since living here it's been that way.

^ check your humidity levels FIRST. Anything below 30% can cause a HOST of respiratory issues.

After that, check/clean furnace fucts and filters.

After that get something like a Foobot (sp?) air quality sampler (about 200$).

Just got the results of our 3 month test. 101 BQ/m3 +\- 16.

I fully expected it to come back MUCH higher. Since it's under 200 I'm inclined to leave it for now. Our house has a few issues I think could be fixed to help get that number even lower but I'll work on it myself little by little as I have the time then re-test.

I used the pucks for a test last year. The results came back around 70 bq and the company suggested I run long term tests for more accuracy.

Instead, I bought the Airthings electronic tester for $250. I just set it up a few days ago, so I haven't had a chance to really use it yet.

I figure I can move it around the basement and then the main floor and upstairs. Once I'm done with it I can start lending it out to friends/family.
