measurements of radon concentrations were performed. The measurements were accompanied by weather parameter observations. The paper presents first results of radon concentration changeability in one of the buildings. Seasonal changeability of indoor radon concentrations in one-family house Maria Karpińska, Zenon Mnich, Jacek Kapała, Krzysztof. Here is a link to a most interesting and sad story from a radon professional on the radon list serve who observed, over a 5 year period, a family who moved into a multi-million dollar house, who followed the rules, observed state water standards, relied on the knowledge and integrity of their builder, but still were exposed to high radon levels.

Given typical water usage rates and radon concentrations found in wells, this entry mechanism only accounts for about % of the radon that enters homes in the U.S. Most indoor radon comes from the soil. Thus, most remediation efforts concentrate on reducing the . “According to the US census in , approximately 25% of Americans live in multifamily buildings that include condos or apartments. AARST members have found that risks associated with radon gas (radioactivity) in single family homes are also found in multifamily buildings in those same areas. That is a large portion in the United States.

"Radon entry into houses having a crawl space." Health Phys no. 3 (): Abstract excerpt: The transport of Rn from soil, through a vented crawl space, and into the living space of single-family residences was studied.

Two houses were monitored in detail for periods of 5 and 7 weeks. The next step was the experimental investigation of the radon sources and entry paths in each house.

The quantities representing the radon situation of a house are primarily the radon concentration (Bq m −3), the entry rate (Bq s −1), and the ventilation rate (l s −1).

However, these simple quantities cannot be determined exactly at all Cited by: Nearly one out of every 15 homes has a radon level EPA considers to be elevated 4 pCi/L or greater. The U.S. average radon-in-air level in single family homes is pCi/L. Indoor radon levels are very important because of the percentage of time we spend indoors.

The only way to determine how much radon is in the area is to test for it.
