Radon Testing Devices


Through extensive radon testing experience Algoma Radon Testing recognized that Rad Elec E-perm Radon detectors were the most reliable, efficient, accurate and environmentaly friendly testing detectors available. Rad Elec E-perms are true integrating detectors that measure radon concentration regardless of extreme temperature or humidity. E-perm Radon Detectors can be used for short term testing that can range from 2 to 7 days or long term testing up to several months.


Algoma Radon Testing also employs the Continuous Radon Monitor. This radon monitor, data logger has special features which include parameters that indicate hourly measurements for radon concentration, temperature, atmospheric pressure, relative humidity and motion sensing. This testing device can be used for compliance testing (Building Code requirements), post radon mitigation testing (showing system mitigation performance) and for real estate transactions. The testing period can range from a few days to several weeks. Radon test results can be available in a short period of time.


When home owners require quick results Algoma Radon Testing recommends initial radon screening measurements over a period of 2 to 7 days or longer to determine the presence and concentration of radon. If the radon results exceed the Health Canada action level of 200 Bq/m3 a further follow-up test may be required. This follow-up measurement is to provide the owner with enough information to make an informed decision on whether to mitigate to reduce radon levels.



Rad Elec E-perms are recognized worldwide as the gold standard for accurate and reliable radon testing results. They are known as true intigrators because they are constantly collecting and registering the ions generated by the radon decaying inside the chamber. Rad Elec electret ion chamber technology consistently outperformed all other radon testing methods in the USEPA Radon Measurement Proficiency Program.
