An experiment with depressurization tests as indicators of radon availability in 6 New Jersey houses

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

This note describes an analysis of data from short-term (2 hours to 6 days) monitoring of indoor radon concentrations and other related parameters in six New Jersey houses before and during application of depressurization with blower doors. We examine the data for consistency, and analyze them to assess the usefulness of this short term test for identifying houses that could expose their occupants to high levels of indoor radon. The analysis shows that the short term testing of houses with application of depressurization with blower doors may have the potential of being developed into a useful screening technique. However, the ... continued below

Description

This note describes an analysis of data from short-term (2 hours to 6 days) monitoring of indoor radon concentrations and other related parameters in six New Jersey houses before and during application of depressurization with blower doors. We examine the data for consistency, and analyze them to assess the usefulness of this short term test for identifying houses that could expose their occupants to high levels of indoor radon. The analysis shows that the short term testing of houses with application of depressurization with blower doors may have the potential of being developed into a useful screening technique. However, the data from the present experiments do not conclusively demonstrate this potential. More careful experimental tests are needed for this purpose. Recommendations are made for improving future experiments. 10 refs., 7 figs.
