What Is Radon?

Radon is a colorless, odorless, natural occurring gas that is found in soil and released into the air as uranium is broken down. Radon released into the air can build up, causing critical long-term health effects. 1 in 15 homes in the U.S. is estimated to contain elevated levels of radon. The radon risk in New England, along with much of the northeast and some parts of the midwest is generally higher than other parts of the country with predicted average indoor radon screening levels greater than 4 pCi/L.

Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the U.S. after smoking. The only way to discover if you have a radon problem is to test the air or water in your home for elevated levels of radon.

Regular radon testing and mitigation can help you have a healthier, safer home for you and your family.

New England is an EPA Radon Hot Zone!

Zone 1: Counties with predicted average indoor radon screening levels greater than 4 pCi/L

Zone 2: Counties with predicted average indoor radon screening levels from 2 to 4 pCi/L

Zone 3: Counties with predicted average indoor radon screening levels less than 2 pCi/L

What Our Customers Say About Us

"Extremely Prompt and Professional! Responded quickly to the request, set an appointment for the very next day. Arrived on-time and texted me 30 min ahead of time as I requested. Upon evaluating existing passive equipment, the job was lower than the initial estimate provided. Highly recommended!"
Michael P.
Southbury, CT
"Spoke directly to Ed, the owner, who gave me a quote on the spot after a few questions. Had an appt within a week of calling, at my convenience. Installer was pleasant and professional. Called a couple of other companies who either never called back or who decided my oddly laid out basement ( part full, part crawl, part addition with dirt floor) was something they didn't want to deal with. Ed was confident they could do the job, and did!"

"This was not my first home sale, I was selling the house, buyer did a radon test - NE radon doctors offered a competitive rate and was quick to help - but the gentleman that showed up to do the install was a real professional, represented the company well. I will sell other homes and every home in the valley has radon, I know I will use them again."
