Governor Edward G. Rendell has proclaimed January as "Radon Action Month," and is urging all homeowners to test for radon.
An estimated 40% of Pennsylvania homes have elevated levels of radon. The only way to know for sure, however, is to test your own home.
Kits are readily available either through hardware stores or by contacting a Pennsylvania certified radon laboratory.
The cooler months are the best time to test because your home is likely to be closed and radon will probably be at its highest concentrations.
