NY State Free and Discounted Radon Kits

For example, where I live in New York State, if time is not of the essence, residents can obtain a radon test kit from the New York State Department of Health, please print this “Radon Detector Order Form”, fill it out and return it with $8.50 per detector ordered (New York State Residents ONLY). NOTE: Please allow 6-8 weeks for processing and delivery (perhaps longer depending on demand. I have heard from some people that it can take a month to get your kit and 3 months to get your results, and that was before recent state lay-offs).

If you need or want radon test results quickly, you may want to purchase a radon test kit from Lowe’s (who usually have the best local price) or a local hardware store like Ace or True Value, Home Depot or similar store.
