  • Maryland homes have higher than average radon levels.

  • Pennsylvania homes have even higher levels than Maryland.

  • Every home should be tested.

 

Radon testing is simple and unobtrusive. At Greenlight Home Inspections, we use the Radalink AirCat system to test for Radon. The monitor not only measures Radon, but also temperature, barometric pressure, and relative humidity. In addition, the monitor has a battery backup and tilt sensors to virtually eliminate any chances of tampering with the results. The test requires a minimum of 48 hours of placement. After the test is complete, the inspector, uploads the data to Radalink. The data is analyzed by expert technicians and the results are text messaged to the inspector usually within that hour. A comprehensive report is then emailed to the client, and by request, to the clients agent.

Greenlight Home Inspection is PA-DEP state certified to perform Radon testing in Pennsylvania
