      The U.S. average radon-in-air level in single family homes is pCi/L. Indoor radon levels are very important because of the percentage of time we spend indoors. The only way to determine how much radon is in the area is to test for it. The EPA states that any radon exposure carries some risk; no level of radon exposure is always safe. CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): The percent of homes with indoor radon concentrations greater than or equal to 4 pCiA is being estimated for the towns and cities in New York State. A methodology is being developed to combine indoor measurement data with radon potential estimates based on surficial geology.

        Radon causes lung cancer, and an estimated one in 15 homes has elevated levels of the invisible, odorless the American Lung Association .   New York residents can get radon test kits from the New York State Department of Health, for a fee of $ To learn more about radon and radon testing, fixing your radon problem, radon .
