How the Cold Affects Radon levels

Most don’t know how winter affects radon levels! When it comes to winterizing, you may want to think about radon testing.

Lower Temps, Less Ventilation

The cold weather has an impact on radon. In the winter, windows often stay closed, not allowing proper ventilation into the home. In addition, the frozen soil forces the gas to find a new route through, and this is often through a warm home. Your home serves as a vacuum that pulls air from lower levels.

Your home can stay protected all winter long by testing for radon gas. If the results are higher than normal, then a little radon mitigation can help keep your home safe from radon all winter long.
