Due to the innovation of technology, radon testing now has a digitalized method where one radon detection device is used for both short-term and long-term radon detection. This method is quite convenient and easy for you, though there are still those who argue that the old school methods work best. This new digitized radon detection test offers flexibility, consistency, longer lifespan, high accuracy, quick response time, continuous testing, and can both be used for short-term and long-term. However, the downside for this new technology is the price, since this digitalized radon detection device is definitely costly.
But if you think about it, the expensive new detector offers more compared to the short-term radon detector that is only good because it is low cost, easy to use, and faster results than long-term radon detector, while the long-term radon detector is beneficial only because it has a relatively low cost, measures average levels, and slight more accurate than short-term radon detector. But both the short and long-term radon detectors are for one time use only, compared to the digitalized radon detector that offers continuous service.
