  • $200 in-city, $250-$300 out-of city (higher amount for distances over 50 km)
  • Rad Elec E-PERM detectors (2); report immediately generated
  • testing fees include detector setup, retrieval, analysis, and explanation of test results. Results available when detectors are retrieved.

  • Closed house conditions* must be maintained prior to and during ST testing to allow radon levels to stabilize

                                          [all fees are subject to HST (13%)]

Real Estate Transactions (3-4 days)*

  • duplicate, concurrent Rad Elec E-PERM detectors; according to C-NRPP, a Long-Term (LT) test is required during next heating season *
  • $200 in-city, $250-$300 out-of-city        (* C-NRPP and CARST Guideline)
  • testing fees include detector setup, retrieval, analysis, and explanation of test results. Results available when detectors are retrieved.

  • Closed house conditions* must be maintained for 12 hours prior to and during ST testing to allow radon levels to stabilize

                                                [all fees are subject to HST (13%)]

Long-Term Testing (91-365 days)

  • recommended by Health Canada and Public Health Departments to better reflect annual levels and for  mitigation purposes
  • in city $200, out of city $250-$300 depending on travelling distance

  • LT tests are usually performed with a Rad Elec E-PERM  system, Accustar AT100 or Radnova Radtrak 2; results are available after testing with E-Perm systems

We endeavour to keep our fees at a reasonable level so that more people can take advantage of having a professional test at an affordable price.

Closed House Conditions:

  • external doors are opened for a minimum time for entry and exit; windows should stay closed

  • fireplaces are not used unless for primary heating

  • limit use of dryers, range hoods, bathroom fans 

  • air conditioners / HRV systems can operate

Do It Yourself (DIY) Applications

I also sell the Accustar AT-100 Long Term test kit itself for "Do-It-Yourself" applications ($54.95. + HST + $15.00-$18.00 for [at-cost] expedited shipping to you (if needed). See my "Web Store" for details and purchase or request one using the Request More Information form, email or phone.

Mitigation of excess radon is NOT part of my mandate although I am familiar with mitigation procedures in general terms. I feel that performing testing, mitigation and followup re-testing services together represents a potential conflict of interest for the client. C-NRPP-Certified contractors specializing in remediation and mitigation have a forte in this area. If necessary, I can refer you to a C-NRPP- qualified mitigation contractor in the SW Ontario area. They will usually offer free estimates on the mitigation system.
