Ceiling fans or any type of fan that circulates air should generally be avoided when conducting a radon test, since their movement could affect its accuracy by introducing outside air or altering airflow patterns within your home.
To achieve accurate radon test results, it is vital that tests be conducted under closed house conditions; that means keeping all windows and doors shut except those required for entry/exit purposes. This ensures a stable indoor environment, and ensures that test results accurately represent typical levels in your home.
If using fans during a radon test due to extreme heat or other factors, it’s crucial that their use does not create significant air movement that could compromise test results. You should consult a professional radon testing service or certified mitigation contractor for guidance on how best to utilize fans during this process without altering accuracy of results.
As a rule, it’s advised that ceiling fans or any other form of air circulation fan are disabled during a radon test in order to achieve accurate results.
