Deadly Dangers of Radon in the Family Home: Protection at an Affordable Cost

Wednesday, December 8, 2021


When it comes to protecting your family, I am guessing that you spare no expense. However, if you could have the most effective protection at the most affordable price, why wouldn’t you take that option? That’s exactly what EcoSense’s EcoQube Smart Home Radon Gas Detector provides; the best protection from the deadly dangers of radon gas at the most affordable price.


The deadly dangers of radon gas


When it comes to cancer, no form is more deadly than lung cancer. And the second leading cause of lung cancer death is exposure to radon gas. The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that radon-related lung cancer claims the lives of as many as 21,000 people in the US each year. The EPA also estimates that 1 in 15 homes in the US has elevated levels of radon gas.


Detecting the presence of radon is not easy. It is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless gas that occurs naturally and is found in rocks, soil, water, and plants. As it is released into the environment, it makes its way into homes through small cracks in foundations or holes created for the entry of pipes and electrical wires.


Once radon finds its way into a home, it can be trapped easily. If allowed to accumulate, it pollutes the air that our families breathe. While some gases cause symptoms like headaches, dizziness, or blurred vision, those exposed to radon show no immediate symptoms.


The need for ongoing radon gas monitoring


If radon testing is conducted at all, it typically is done only when you purchase your home. Your inspector may have run a short-term, passive radon test, which took a sample of the air in your home over a few hours or a few days and had the sample tested for traces of radon.


While short-term radon tests are common, recent studies have shown them to provide unreliable results up to 99 percent of the time. They fail because radon levels can fluctuate dramatically from day to day, affected by the weather, activity in your home, and other factors.


To ensure that you are aware of dangerous radon levels in your home, the safest option is ongoing monitoring that provides accurate readings over extended periods. Relying on short-term tests can result in a false positive, which can lead to unnecessary stress, or a false negative, which can lead to unnecessary long-term exposure to a cancer-causing toxin.


EcoQube: the affordable, professional radon gas monitor


The EcoQube was designed to provide families with the highest level of protection at a fraction of the cost charged for most reliable long-term radon monitoring devices. Its patented technology gauges air quality once every ten minutes, which is 15 times the industry standard. And while most detectors need up to two days of exposure to get an initial reading, EcoQube utilizes ion chamber technology to get highly reliable results within an hour.


The EcoQube was also designed to be easy to use and easy to understand. It's the size of a coffee mug, allowing it to be placed anywhere in your home inconspicuously. Once plugged in, and connected to your Wi-Fi, easy to understand LED lights on the front of the EcoQube report the level of radon in the air — green for acceptable, yellow for concern, and red for danger. You get an initial reading from EcoQube within 10 minutes.


In addition, EcoQube comes with the EcoQube app which allows you to view current reading and historical radon trend on your smartphone. Wherever you are, you will know if there is a radon problem at home thanks to EcoQube’s smart technology.


It’s easy to see why EcoQube was named to TIME’s list of the Best Inventions of 2021. And with it’s affordable price of less than $200, it’s easy to bring the life-saving technology into your home.
