Home Health and Safety

 

Radon is a radioactive gas that you cannot see, smell or taste.

 

Radon gas causes lung cancer.

 

The presence of Radon can be measured by a simple test.

 

Two small detectors, about the size of an air freshener, are placed in your home.

 

After three months you post them to the Radiological Protection Institute of Ireland.

 

Economic implications of big or small to be examined

 

Ballynagran Energy Plus has organized radon tests in many of the local homes
