Radon in NH Homes

Indoor radon gas is the second-leading cause of lung cancer in the United States.

Breathing it over prolonged periods can present a significant health risk to you and your family.

Radon is a class A (known human) carcinogen and is estimated to cause about 21,000 lung cancer deaths per year in the US alone.

Radon is a colorless, odorless and tasteless gas produced by the decay of uranium and radon.

Testing is the only way to confirm if you have a radon problem or not. Even very high levels of radon can be reduced to acceptable levels through a radon-reduction system.

EPA recommends that you know the indoor radon level in any home you own or consider buying.

Radon is a radioactive gas that comes from the natural breakdown of uranium in soil and rock.

Radon typically moves up through the ground and enters your home through small cracks in your foundation.

Radon gas can also dissolve in your well water and be introduced to your home through showers, sinks, dishwashers and washing machines.

Nearly 1 out of 15 homes have an elevated radon level of 4pCi/l or more.

Radon levels cannot be predicted by comparing to other homes in the area, neighboring homes can have drastic differences in levels.
