Heating and Air Conditioning
The air conditioning components will be inspected for condition of cases, electric disconnects, unusual noises, condensation removal, condition of coils, temperature of the coolant lines, temperature differential, thermostat function, condition of the filters and ductwork where visible. 65 Degrees Outside is the accepted threshold, AC units tested only above 65 degrees, Heating system only checked when below 65 degrees.
Appliances
All appliances will be run through their normal cycle and visual inspected.

Radon Measurement / Inspection

What is Radon?
Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas which comes from the natural breakdown (radioactive decay) of uranium. It is usually found in igneous rock and soil but in some cases, well water may also be a source of radon. Radon comes through the soil and enters your home through cracks, vents and other openings in the lowest level of your home.
Why Test for Radon?
Radon is a cancer-causing radioactive gas. When the radioactive particles become trapped in your lungs while breathing, the powerful bursts of radiation damage your lung tissue which can lead to lung cancer. You cannot see, smell or taste radon, but it may be a problem in your home. The US EPA, Surgeon General, and American Lung Association have warned that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer and kills 22,000 each year in the United States alone. According to the US EPA, nearly 1 in 3 homes checked in many areas in the US had high levels of radon. Therefore, it is recommended that all homes be tested for radon. No two homes have the identical conditions.

High Radon levels can be reduced in your home through proper mitigation systems. Visit our Social Media section for articles and more information on Radon Tests.



Testing Method:
EPA recommended Alpha Charcoal Canister. Much more accurate than the most common methods used.
