Stop the tc. Radon is easily mitigated.

Depending on which state you live in, maybe all states do this now, but when you build, you will be required to install either an active or passive radon system. We built a house here is PA in 2010 and all we were required to do was install a passive system which is just a series of perforated pipes beneath the basement slab connecting to an exhaust pipe that daylights out of the roof. It was up to us if we wanted to test for radon after the build and have a fan installed to create the suction under the slab that is needed to remove the radon. I always questioned the effectiveness of the passive system so I'll buy this detector and see what levels I get.

This is a ridiculous statement. If it were true, no one would be living in upper half of the US. This map shows that about half of the US has an average radon level higher than 4 pi/l (in red). Anything over that and the EPA recommends you take corrective measures to reduce your exposure to radon gas and like levler24 said, it is easily mitigated.

Do these need to be replaced after a specific amount of time like a carbon monoxide detector?

The mysterious nature of the post got me to click. Low and behold we're building a new home in a radon heavy area and stuff like this I'm actually interested in. No idea if this is a good deal or investment, but might look into it.

According to SD, this was on sale back in November 2017 for $140. While this isn't the cheapest deal, it's a lot cheaper than $200. I have been waiting for a system like this, and I might just take the plunge.

I live in PA, Chester County and just purchased a new construction home without a radon remediation system in 2016. I don't think there's any requirement yet to have one installed in every house, but to your point, I have been told radon is a concern for many areas of the state. I still have not done any analysis on my home as it was suggested to let the house settle for at least a year before doing any reading. We have an unfinished basement with a sump pump installed.

Maybe you had a test before purchasing that was conducted by the home inspector? When we bought our first house that was already built, the test result was less than 4 pCi/L so we didn't need to install anything before closing. And yes, you are correct, radon levels in PA are high on average. My second house they were over 130 pCi/L (prior to installing an active mitigation system).

This is a good unit to have in any house with a basement - especially if it has a sump pump system.
Bought it a few years back and indeed measure a different between before and after an active radon mitigation system.

Note that Radon radiation can fluctuate - highly dependent on the ground types in your area.
It is good to have one around the house.

in my case we did a measurement before buying/move-in to the house. At that time it measure below 2 (per national standard).
then about 9 years later it jumped to 4.5 - 5 .. with no changes in the basement (furniture, finished/unfinished).
