Radon Awareness Month

After my previous post about Michigan's free Radon Kits, I did some research and found some other states are having promotions for this month. Radon Awareness Month is January 2008. Check for your state below for more information. Update 2/16/08-Now that Radon Awareness Month is over, most of the offers I listed here are no longer valid. Today I am deleting all expired offers. If you do not find your state listed below, it is because they are no longer offering free test kits.
A coupon for a free test kit may be obtained HERE. I am unsure whether this coupon will be honored, but it is worth a try.
Delaware-Free radon test kits are available to all Delawareans and can be requested by calling (302) 744-4857. These test kits consist of a canister or envelope containing charcoal. To begin the test, the homeowner simply opens the canister, exposing the charcoal. The charcoal absorbs radon gases which exist in the home. In four to seven days, the container is sealed and mailed (postage is even pre-paid) to the laboratory for testing. Results will be sent to the homeowner in approximately one week.
