Consumer Reports is the only place to find unbiased, independent radon test kit reviews. A radioactive chemical element, radon is a top cause of lung cancer. Unfortunately, there are no symptoms of over-exposure to radon and no treatment for radon exposure. So testing for residential sources of radon is a good idea. Radon in the home can be mitigated, and the process is much simpler than fixing environmental lead in the home.
We can help you decide whether to buy a long-term radon test kit or a short-term radon test kit. Our experts at the Consumer Reports National Testing and Research Center have evaluated nearly a dozen different radon test kits at our on-site testing labs. Our radon test kit reviews will provide you with Ratings, where you will find the exact numerical score our experts have assigned to the reliability of each of the tested kits. We review such brands as Accustar, RSSI, Kidde, RTCA, Pro-Lab, AirChek, First Alert, and others. Our radon test kit review Ratings chart makes it easy to compare different types and brands so you can find the right kit for your needs.
After reading the reviews, you can compare models, review our list of the features and specifications, read user reviews, and submit your own review. We also tell you how to find a trained testing professional.
