[Amazon.ca] Radon Detector - Corentium Home by Airthings - $179.99

I added this Radon Detector to my wish list on Amazon and it has consistently been $229.00 at both Amazon and BestBuy.
Today I noticed both places have it on sale for to $179.99. Good deal if you are in the market for one.

Be sure to buy an Amazon or Best Buy gift card from Shell first with their current 10% promo.

Edit:
Amazon deal is dead, but Best Buy still has the same price of 179.99.

Damn. Just bought this off amazon. Wish they did price matching to their old prices. Now I will have to return I guess.

Btw. This is the most accurate consumer radon detector on the market. No special gadgetry or wifi features. It just works.

Thanks OP.

I bought the Airthings wave last Boxing Day and I’m glad I can follow the radon level with time. 2nd cause of lung cancer so if you or you’re children spend a lot of time in the basement, I think it’s a great tool to have. Just make sure you can open some windows/ have the ability to install a radon pipe with fan. Just knowing you have a radon problem and not being able to do anything isn’t super helpful!

I bought one of the other Airthings radon monitor and I am sure glad I did.

Radon is bad staff.

Nice offer to have available, but 28 days isn't really enough time to ensure that your home will have safe levels of radon year-round is it? I get that there are only so many units available and lending them out for months at a time to one household isn't very efficient, but for someone who might think that they have no radon issues after 4 weeks of monitoring, it could be a different story several months later for them.

Ordered. Had a bunch of Amazon credits from surveys so only had to play $55 out of pocket. Been meaning to buy one since we moved into our new place last December. Now can test and see whats up. Tried the pucks in the past when they were free, but we moved before we could test the old house

I've had mine (this exact model) for two years, and the readings have only fluctuated by a max or 20 or 30 units throughout the year. In 28 days you could easily find out if your house is unsafe, imo. If you get a reading of say 400, you're not going to assume it'll go back down to safe levels in 6 months, you need to act.

Not sold by Amazon. Probably better to buy from BestBuy.

An interesting map, but a lot of BS in it (not surprising since a Radon testing company has provided it)

As if anyone has properly measured all of Canada. We have crews up in the Arctic Islands right now?

(And for the record, I have extensive cartography and geophysical experience)

Reading the Amazon ad:

Designed in Europe, and tested in Japan

That's great...as if tested in Japan means something more than say tested in the UK, or Canada , or USA or ...ad nauseum

I've had my eye on that one for a while. It has better specs and they claim better accuracy and some degree of certification. I like the fast measurement which is nice if you want to quickly spot check in multiple areas in your home. What I don't like is that it looks like North American support is non-existent so if you have issues you're on your own.

Gotta agree with that. Ability to data log is essential.

No it's good for 10 years I believe and needs to be calibrated every year. The batteries are good for 3 years.

For radon, you really need to remove radon gas from the source (i.e. under your concrete slab) since it comes largely from the soil beneath. Actively venting the air from the living space seems to have very little measurable effect, from my experience (i.e. I measured radon levels before and after putting in a large fan to blow air outward and to create a vacuum (to detect leaks), and radon levels were virtually unchanged -- in my case in the 200-300 Bq/m^3 range). Once I installed a radon fan, values dropped to the 0-20 Bq/m^3 range.
