Continuous Home Radon Testing from 0 to 999.9 pc i/L Electronic Radon Gas Alarm
Safety Siren Pro 3 HS71512 digital radon gas alarm for home safety: know your radon gas levels. Radon gas causes lung cancer . Plug in. 48 hours later, you see the first radon level reading. Learn if a house needs radon mitigation . This electronic radon monitor is the only EPA evaluated radon gas alarm , the Safety Siren Pro 3 Electronic Radon Gas DetectorHS71512 from Family Safety Products.
Note: current EPA recommended indoor radon readings are below 2 pci/L. "Because there is no known safe level of exposure to radon, EPA also
recommends that Americans consider fixing their home for radon levels between 2 pCi/L and 4 pCi/L. The average radon concentration in the
indoor air of America's homes is about 1.3 pCi/L. It is upon this level
that EPA based its estimate of 21,000 radon-related lung cancers a year
upon. It is for this simple reason that EPA recommends that Americans
consider fixing their homes when the radon level is between 2 pCi/L and 4
pCi/L. The average concentration of radon in outdoor air is .4 pCi/L or
1/10 th of EPA's 4 pCi/L action level." from the EPA website.
This Safety Siren 3 Radon Gas Alarm is a so called "closed type" or "filtered" detector, i.e only radon gas from ambient air is detected regardless of the amount of radon progeny that may be present.
As seen on TV , this continuous digital radon gas monitor displays from 0.0 pci/L to 999.9 pci/L. This is not a single use radon tester detection kit. Indoor air quality about radon gas is updated hourly with this radon gas monitoring device. Important Notes: The Safety Siren Pro 3 cannot be sold to nor shipped to Iowa. Contact the Iowa Department of Public Health for further information. Per
Iowa Department of Public Health rules, Chapters 43 (136B) and N.J.A.C.
View short term radon levels and long term averages on a digital display.The Safety Siren Pro 3 electronic radon monitor gives its first radon reading after 48 hours of radon gas sampling.
Radon gas comes from uranium breaking down in soil. Continuous home radon monitoring is recommended in high radon areas or when radon mitigation systems are used. Radon gas levels change according to humidity and season. See "Radon Facts" below the radon monitor information.

Final accuracy test for each Safety Siren Pro 3 radon detector is comparison against a professional SUN Nuclear radon testing unit.
Notes: The Pro 3 radon monitor requires 48 hours sampling time before first accurate reading displays. Always clear the memory before beginning a new radon measurement in another room or level of your home or building. If you plan to compare against a radon canister test, clear the memory and begin and end the tests at exactly the same time.

Radon is a colorless, tasteless and odorless radioactive gas produced by uranium breaking down in soil. Radon testing is important as high level accumulations of radon gas are hazardous to long-term health. According to the Iowa Department of Public Health, the Iowa radon survey indicates that Iowa has the largest percentage (71.6%) of homes above the US Environmental Protection Agency standard of 4pCi/L than any other state.
The Surgeon General states radon is second to smoking as the leading cause of lung cancer deaths in the United States.
The EPA and the Surgeon General recommend radon testing from the lowest living level through the 2nd floor.
Radon gas decays into radioactive particles that can be trapped in lungs as you breathe. As particles break down, small bursts of energy release that can damage lung tissue, leading to lung cancer. Not everyone exposed to elevated radon levels develops lung cancer. Time between exposure and lung cancer onset may be many years.
Home radon gas levels are not stable. Over a one-month period, radon gas readings can vary from safe to dangerous. Radon levels change due to humidity, temperature, ventilation and season.
EPA currently recommends corrective action if radon levels are between 2 and 4 pCi/L (4 Pico-Curies per liter) on a long-term basis.
Radon gas detection requires sensitive radon test equipment.
