Radon levels vary year to year; there’s no set season when radon exposure peaks. Certain weather conditions and other factors can have an impactful influence on levels, so it is wise to take steps to lower your home or building’s radon emissions.
Radon levels tend to increase during the winter months when buildings tend to close up more tightly and ventilation decreases, leaving more radon trapped inside the structure and collecting. But other times of the year can also see higher radon concentrations depending on various factors.
Other factors that can influence radon levels include variations in barometric pressure, rainfall and seismic activity. Furthermore, geology and soil composition in an area may influence levels, as can building construction practices and environmental concerns.
To ensure that your home or building has adequate levels of radon, it’s crucial that radon testing be conducted regularly and regardless of season. Radon testing is simple and inexpensive and will help protect occupants against exposure to harmful levels of radon gas. If elevated radon levels are detected, taking measures such as installing a mitigation system could help lower them and ensure their health is preserved.
