Free Radon Test Kits - Test, Fix & Breathe Easy!

Gillian Morgan,, Public Health Communication Officer, VT Dept. of Health, Vermont
January is National Radon Action Month, and the Vermont Department of Health is giving away FREE radon test kits! To get your free kit, send an email with your name, mailing address, physical address and phone number to or call 1-800-439-8550.
One out of every eight homes in Vermont has elevated levels of radon, a naturally occurring radioactive gas that seeps into homes from soil and bedrock. Over a lifetime, breathing in air with elevated radon levels can cause lung cancer. About 50 Vermonters die every year due to radon exposure. Homes of any age and in any location can have elevated radon levels.
Because radon levels can change daily, weekly and seasonally, a long-term test of 3 to 12 months is the best way to accurately test for the gas. Open the kit immediately and leave it in place throughout a heating season, and then mail it back to the Health Department to get your results.
Test, fix, and breathe easy.
