Residents are encouraged to purchase radon test kits for only $5 this month to test their homes for the potentially harmful gas. January is National Radon Action Month, and the Oakland County Health Division recommends testing homes for radon during the winter months since windows and doors typically remain closed due to cooler temperatures allowing radon gas to collect inside. The Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) recommends testing for radon every two years due to homes settling and new cracks forming in the foundation, potentially causing radon levels to change.
