November is radon awareness Month. Look up 2017 11 06 Telegraph journal C6.
Radon, just like air temperature, is a natural condition however, lungs are not equipped with such sensitive nerves. As a consequence, many more people die from indoor air radon induced lung cancer than from cold indoor air. Our properly designed radon mitigation systems will cost like a heating system to install, yet will consume as little electricity as a light bulb, so around $5 to $10 per Month. Most houses can be efficiently mitigated for radon with an energy efficient system and most clients disconnect permanently their dehumidifier after our mitigation system is running as it will also eliminate a lot of moisture also present in sub slab gas. That amount of energy is then no longer spent.
Protect the vulnerable lungs of yourself, your family and your pets. Methods exist to reduce the concentration of radon indoors.
In the Maritimes, where this natural health hazard is much more severe than the average level in Canada, we launched the program:
Radon, kNOw MORE
The less you breath in,
... the better.
In a nutshell what you need to do:
Step 1: Call a professional to have your dwelling or workplace checked for nuclear radiation level, because this is how to know for sure what level of radon concentration is in your dwelling. Radon does not smell, shine, taste or ring a bell. Unless you are confident that you will operate the test carefully, Radon concentration measurements should be left to a certified specialist using the right equipment and up to date protocol. This measurement is your first step to know if the occupants of your dwelling or workplace are exposed to the long term risk that level of radon presents. Though every level of radon level is unhealthy, 200 Bq/m3 is the threshold as currently set by Health Canada. 100 for the WHO.
Step 2: If your measurement is reliable and reads over 200 Bq/m3, then radon mitigation work is recommended to address this issue. Again, call a Health Canada / C-NRPP.ca or firstname.lastname@example.org or call 506 850 5510
Our goal at Enviroporta is to have as many dwellings, workplaces, schools and similar public places tested so as to recommend to reduce the risks of lung cancer wherever necessary. Fee depends of the building layout. We match certified competitor's fees. We aim at safer dwellings and workplaces in NB and PEI.

Do you know how many women or men weekly die in New Brunswick with lung cancer after exposure to radon? Radon seeps unnoticed in their home or workplace. They do not make the front page news, neither does radon.
Do we die for being too cold in our houses in winter? No, because we do whatever we have to do to remain comfortable. Skin has many nerves to inform the brain when heating is required for comfort. Unlike our skin, our lungs send no noticeable signal to our brain. Radon is an issue that we have to learn: Health Canada / radon is an excellent source. When seeking professional to come at your place, C-NRPP and CARST provide you with certified professionals. Jean Dallaporta, Enviroporta is also certified as NRCan Energy Efficiency Advisor and will also minimize energy loss.
This recent scientific publication will take you a little further in the detail of radon impact on health and on correlation between better sealed constructions and indoor air radon concentration level.
'' ConclusionOur findings show that radon, an established carcinogen, is of genuine concern in southern Alberta and legitimatize efforts to understand the consequences of radon exposure to public health. Roughly 2000 Albertans are diagnosed with lung cancer annually, of whom about 15% are never-smokers. We have shown that 48% of area homes had indoor air radon levels of 100 Bq/m3 or higher and 12% were at or exceeded the maximum acceptable limit for Canada of 200 Bq/m3. Although homes built in 1992 or later contained significantly higher radon levels than older homes, signifying an increasing public health hazard, remediation methods were effective at reducing radon concentrations. This suggests that radon testing and mitigation are likely to be impactful cancer prevention strategies. ''
