RADON SHORT-TERM VERSUS LONG-TERM TEST?


RADON SHORT ARTICLES: RADON SHORT-TERM VERSUS LONG-TERM TEST?

Indoor Radon concentrations vary frequently and with the change of seasons, generally having a maximum in winter and a minimum in summer. Therefore a long-term test with a duration of one year is recommended to have a reliable result. However, in some cases performing a short-term test could be helpful. In general, a short-term Radon test should not be less than 2 days, and it can be as long as 90 days.  In the table below, we see what the typical motivations to choose a short term, and a long term Radon test are:

 

Misure di BREVE periodo Misure di LUNGO periodo
Rischio potenziale Valutazione del rischio
Valutazione preliminare e caratterizzazione di un edificio Misura rappresentativa delle condizioni di «abitazione» dell’edificio
Diagnostica e ricerca delle vie di ingresso Valore medio «stabile»
Verifica corretto funzionamento sistemi di risanamento Verifica efficacia sistemi di risanamento
