Evaluating the impact of energy-saving measures on dwellings radon levels with the AlphaGUARD

Sources: Institute of Medical Physics and Radiation Protection, Technische Hochschule Mittelhessen, Gießen

Context

The reduction of the air exchange rate, as a consequence of energy efficiency measures, results in an increase of the radon activity concentration in indoor air. The goal of this project was to examine the effect of radon activity concentration in 4 inhabited buildings.

Results

After comparing the results of the radon measurements with the AlphaGUARD before and after the energy saving measures, the results showed radon concentrations tended to increase from the previous examined dwellings.
