Radon Test Report
Interpreting Your Results

At the conclusion of your radon test, East Coast Home Inspection will provide a detailed report of your radon analysis. The results will be presented in a Radon Screening Report with an indicator of either “green”, “yellow” or “red”.

Green Test Result

A Green Test Result indicates a Radon Screening Assessment of 75 Bq/m3 or less during the Heating Season and 50 Bq/m3 or less Outside the Heating Season. If a Green Test Result is achieved, then the Radon Screening Report shall be defined as “Green”, and no further action with regard to radon testing is recommended or warranted prior to purchase. It is important to note that a “Green” test does not guarantee that the annual average radon concentration in the dwelling is below 200 Bq/m3. A follow-up long-term radon measurement conducted during the next heating season must still be carried out. 

 

Yellow Test Result

Your Radon Screening Assessment reported as “Yellow” - (greater than 75 Bq/m3 during the heating season or 50 B/m3 outside the heating season and up to and including 400 Bq/m3) indicates that a radon remediation may be warranted and consideration should be made for a long- term follow-up test and installation of a radon mitigation system. Purchase negotiations should take the potential cost of a mitigation system into account (for example; setting funds in escrow). 

 

Red Test Result

A test reported as “Red” - (greater than 400 Bq/m3) indicates a strong possibility that a radon remediation may be warranted and consideration should be made for a long-term follow-up test and installation of a radon mitigation system. Purchase negotiations should take the potential cost of a mitigation system into account (for example; setting funds in escrow).
