About as low as it gets for this really highly reviewed detector that rarely goes on sale. $149.99 "with deal" at Amazon. If you're quick, Amazon Warehouse Deals has 6 left of the Used - Like New for $134.99.

While I cannot speak to ADHD, there's evidence that supports the argument that the EPA chose an arbitrary level they deemed "unsafe"

The studies they used to arrive at the 4pCi/L weren't entirely appropriate - with their strongest research having been a study about miners and lung cancer ( who sure as hell were breathing in a lot more than just radon )

There's also evidence that low level radiation levels of radon can stimulate the immune system and actually have a positive effect on overall health (radiation hormesis). Not recommending anyone NOT remediate, but I think the "safe" level is probably higher than 4 pCi/L provided you don't LIVE in your basement 24/7

So in summation - showing there's a link with lung cancer and *really really high levels of radon* does not intrinsically prove that there's a risk with LOW levels of radon. Poison is the dosage, and a multi billion dollar industry has thrived on ignorance. I see tons of morons on Facebook who started their own company as "radon specialists" because any idiot can buy a test kit

I have one of these detectors - found that my basement idles around 4-5 in the summer, and 3-4 in the winter. Constant readings helped me know if my own remediation efforts had an effect (they did). But I certainly don't lose sleep over it

Radon levels fluctuate all the time (temperature, humidity, precipitation). It's good to have a meter for peace of mind. I personally haven't used this device but instead have a Radon Eye. I ended up having a mitigation system installed after discovering my levels were a bit higher than I was comfortable with. BTW, the house passed the Radon test when I purchased it.

What do people use this for? I feel like most people get their home tested before buying, so you either have a mitigation system installed or your levels are good and you don't need to worry right?

How do you like the Radon Eye detector? Did you compare it to this one before choosing it?

I have no problems with the Radon Eye. I did compare it with this unit (specs) as well as a side-by-side comparison with my Father-in-law's Safety Siren.

I ended up purchasing the Radon Eye because of the 10 minute sample window, AC adapter, and Bluetooth log downloading capability. Nice to get the logs and graph data points in Excel for very long-term tracking.

Thanks for the info - spent some time evaluating both and ended up getting the older one which has better reviews and less complexity ... I just want a reading, don't need cloud integration, etc.

I highly recommend the AirThings Wave $159 lightning deal. The app and bluetooth connectivity make monitoring/tracking/trending very easy. I've been running it since May when it launched and I'm amazed at swings in the radon levels. I too had the radon tested when I bought the house, over a 72 hour period and looking at the week/month readings is a whole other story. I'll be installing a mitigation system soon and look forward to tracking it's effectiveness with this unit.

I got this for $160 not too long ago. Too bad I didn't wait. Readings are in line with the professional unit the home inspector used.

I was surprised by how much radon fluctuates. Most days we're in the 4-5 range, but last week it spike over 12 for a day before dropping down below 4.

The real reason for me buying this is for doing my own mitigation so I can corrrlate my improvements to a reduction in radon. If I wasn't planning on changing anything the mail away tests would be sufficient.
