Comment:
Interesting to see all the different variables that change radon levels. It is beneficial to see what causes the radon levels to go up and down. Running the clothes dryer, stove exhaust fan, bathroom fan, with the windows closed or open. I haven't found a good alternative to this unit for constantly monitoring the radon levels.

Soon after obtaining unit it failed to respond to menu<br />requests although it still gave long term radon readings. Eventually the readings stopped appearing.<br />When I phoned the manufacturer I was told, by a machine,<br />to leave a message and they'll get back to me.<br />No response three weeks later.<br />I notified Amazon, where I purchased the unit, and they agreed to return my purchase price,

Comment:
I used this product consistently since purchased. I also ran many test kits side by side to verify installation of a Radon mitigation system. After less than a year, maybe six months, it seemed to go out of spec, giving readings significantly higher than the test kits. I sent the company an email prior to the end of the one year warranty period as stated in the manual but got no response.
