This radon kit was so easy to use. Instructions were clear. And really liked the email reminding me to stop test. I paid for a prepaid FedEx label which made returning test for analysis super easy. And then received email to tell me my results.
Was easy to use and arrived quickly.
Very simple to use: just set the tester in the undisturbed house and send in to the company. Got our numbers back in under 10 days.
I’ve used 2 Radon tests of different brands. BOTH use Alpha Energy Labs to process the tests. The testing material is identical in both. This tells me that if you can identify the Alpha Energy Labs items in the product photos, then shop for the low price option because it’s really the same test.
The test is very simple to use and has very clear instructions. First pick a place where you want to perform the test – usually the lowest level of your home. In my case the basement of my New England home. In New England Radon is very common, must be all that granite… Next register your test and choose whether to get the recommended FedEx return label (~$9 additional cost) and set the start date and time then place the test. Wait 2 or 3 days, record the end date and time and ship it off at a FedEx drop.
Once received I got my results in 3 business days. I had made a typo entering one of the dates and got a notification. Their system let me correct my error which I appreciated greatly. Definitely user friendly.
The results came back as a very clear and easy to understand PDF attached to an email. It had a higher level that I was expecting: Yikes! And they recommended getting a second test to confirm the results. I’m waiting to get the results on that test. It is another brand at 2/3 the price but using Alpha Energy Labs just like this one.
The test was easier than I expected and I’m very pleased with the process. The included pamphlet is very informative and educational on Radon. I hadn’t given it much thought before, but I should have. I guess I can say this exceeded my expectations. The price is in line with a number of these tests available on Amazon though there are some for significantly less with the same testing components and processing by Alpha Energy Labs. Price is the only reason I’m giving only 4 stars but it’s enough.
I have used a few other radon kits in the past and this one is very easy to use. The kit comes with well written instructions explaining where the radon sampler should be placed and explains other important information as well to help obtain the best possible results. Be sure to read the instructions carefully before starting the test. A serial number is included on the sampler which is used to register the kit with their website online. You provide some basic information about you and your location as well as the date you started the test. The company will then remind you when the test has reached the end of the testing period then to place the sampler back into the included resealable mailer. A fedex return label may be purchased and printed from their website if you wish, mine cost $9.25. Purchasing the label from them does provide a guarantee that if something happens during shipping they’ll provide you with a new kit.
My kit is currently in the mail on it’s way to the testing center so I should get results back in the next few days. Overall, the kit was very easy to use. The hardest part was finding a good location to place the sampler for 3 days.
This test kit was very easy to use and a great value for the price!
Easy set up and return. You may want to pass on Fed Express and instead send it via USPS. You may save a few bucks.
