Product Description

Product Description

About The Kidde 442020 Radon Detector KitThe Kidde 442020 Radon Detector Kit is EPA registered and makes testing for radon easy. Included in the Kidde 442020 Radon Detector Kit are instructions, an information card, a return mailer envelope, and an activated charcoal radon sampler bag. To test for radon place the radon sampler bag in an ideal location for three days, and then just mail the bag in the enclosed envelope to Alpha Energy Laboratories for testing. Then the lab will mail the results back to you with the information about their findings. The price of the Kidde 442020 Radon Detector Kit includes the lab testing and report. The cost of mailing the bag is not included but only requires two postage stamps.Radon gas is an invisible, odorless, widespread radioactive gas that is a natural byproduct of uranium decaying in the ground. The EPA has said that radon gas is the second leading contributor to lung cancer. Radon gas exists naturally outdoors in low concentrations that are not a health concern generally. In areas such as basements that are not ventilated well radon gas can accumulate and be a cause for concern.

Kidde 442020 Radon Gas Detection Test Kit

Kidde's radon test kit analyzes the amount of radon, a carcinogen, in your home with an EPA-registered facility. Radon is estimated to cause thousands of lung cancer deaths in the U.S. each year and exposure to radon in the home is responsible for an estimated 20,000 lung cancer deaths each year. Radon is a health hazard with a simple solution.

How it works

Place the enclosed radon sampler bag in the test location for two to three days. Then mail the radon sampler bag to Alpha Energy Laboratories in the kit's self-addressed envelope. Test results are mailed back to you by the lab.

Analysis fee

Analysis included, no additional fees to pay except New Jersey residents EPA charges $10

What's in the box

What is Radon?

Radon comes from the natural (radioactive) breakdown of uranium in soil, rock and water and gets into the air you breathe. Radon can be found all over the U.S. It can get into any type of building — homes, offices, and schools — and result in a high indoor radon level. But you and your family are most likely to get your greatest exposure at home, where you spend most of your time.

Waste of time... I followed the instructions for the Kidde Radon Test Kit and received my results in a reasonable amount of time via email.

In the U.S. there is a fairly easy way to see if you are at a higher than normal risk for radon. First, just type "EPA Radon Map" into Google. Go to the top address. From there you should be able to access a county-by-county map of your state's radon potential. There are three zones. Counties in red are "red zones" with an average radon level of greater than 4 pCi/L, which is the lower threshold for needing to repair your home. These are the counties with the highest risk. Generally, if your home has a basement, especially if it is finished and people inhabit it on a regular basis, you should really check your home. Also, don't assume that because you had your home tested when you moved in or several years ago that everything is still OK. I tested my home in 1998, and it was in the 2-4 pCi/L range. I did a test last week and the radon level had doubled in eight years!

About the product itself, it has clear instructions on how to start and stop the collection test. Also, you can mark on the return form to have your results emailed to you so you don't have to wait for the mail. We sent our results off in the mail on a Saturday and had the results back via email on Wednesday. The returned report not only contains your home's radon level but also a section on radon health risks - its much higher if you smoke, state radon contacts, and what you should do next depending on the radon level. I highly recommend this product.

Waste of time... I followed the instructions for the Kidde Radon Test Kit and received my results in a reasonable amount of time via email. However, my lab result was a 5 with an accuracy range of +-5!!! So, I could have a score of between 0 and 10? Their recommendation was to buy another kit and test again! No thanks. If I would have known that there was a +-5 accuracy range, I would not have bought it in the first place. I checked online and found that the leading consumer magazine ranked the Kidde Radon Test last out of all test kits. After much consideration, I paid the money for a Safety Siren Radon Detector which I'll review after a couple of months. After 2 days, it has a reading of 2.7, which is normal for my area.

Read this story and decide for yourself if you want to order this Kidde Radon Testing Kit.

I bought this, read the instructions, followed the directions perfectly as to the test conditions, and mailed the product to the testing agency at the proper address. In the paperwork that I sent, I requested that the test report be mailed to me "Via US Mail."

I mailed the package EXPRESS MAIL, overnight delivery. I have a copy of the USPS **signed receipt, ** confirming delivery on September 9, 2008.

I tried their website, entering my zip code and the serial number of the test kit as their website asks. I made sure that my Pop-up Blocker was off, as their website suggests. Their website did not give me the test results. According to their website, I was a total stranger. There were no test results or even an admission that they had received my test kit. I repeated this process almost daily. No success.

I sent them an email about two weeks later. No answer.

Four weeks later, I sent a letter of complaint with copies of all my documents. I received an email reply and I also got a full letter with a full report. The letter also stated that they had already sent me a letter two weeks earlier. (I have a problem believing that, judging by their lack of response to my email. It was only when I sent that letter of complaint with all the supporting documents that I got an answer.)

As I said, decide for yourself if you want to get mixed up in a time-consuming and money-consuming project like that.

I ended up buying the Safety Siren Radon Detector from Amazon. It is working now.

I'm not sure why there have been so many complaints about this product. I followed the instructions, sent the kit in, and received results. I did notice that the email containing my results went to my spam folder. I'm assuming all of these people that say they never got results requested an email and never thought to check their spam folder!! I would definitely use this product again, and have already recommended it to my friends.

I live in an area where Radon is not a major concern, but I watched a news report locally that mentioned that some areas in my region were susceptible to the gas. This kit is easy to use. I recommend sending your kit in using a priority service to guarantee delivery (as you can track it) and to get the results back faster. I did not have a problem using this kit or with customer service as some of the other reviewers have complained.

We purchased this radon kit and used it exactly per instructions. My results were emailed to me in were extremely high (20pCi/l). We ended up paying for the hourly reading (Radalink Radon Monitors)from a home inspection company licensed with the equipment. The results were much different - luckily low levels of radon(1.2 pCi/l). I'd say save your $20, heartache over possibly having to purchase the radon fans, and call a home inspector for a more accurate reading the first time.
