EcoQube is an affordable measuring instrument who want to measure changeable radon levels during the day. EcoQube provides real time insights into hourly fluctuations of radon levels.
- The first measurement result is obtained within 10 minutes, with a more reliable result acquired within one hour. Other instruments that can take up to 24 hours to reach the same precision level.
- More accurate than other instruments for home use with an industry-leading sensitivity of 30 counts per hour per 1pCi/L (15 times more sensitive than industry standards).
- Connects to Wi-Fi router in the home. No other wireless equipment is needed.
- Smartphone App (Android, iOS) makes it possible to monitor radon levels in real time anywhere, anytime.
- Ideal solution for monitoring how radon levels vary following a radon reduction measure or a change in ventilation.
EcoQube is a cube-shaped instrument that fits in the palm of your hand. The patented detection technology provides fast and reliable results. Measurement results and warning messages are delivered directly to your smartphone through a Wi-Fi connection. EcoQube constantly monitors to provide accurate radon level measurements and displays real-time status using a 3-color LED display on the front.
Frequently Asked Questions About EcoQube
Do continuous radon monitors work?
Long-term radon test kits and continuous radon monitors provide you with more accurate readings. These kits cost more than short-term tests but take into account a longer, more accurate average for your home’s level of this harmful gas, which is crucial when making decisions about your health and whether taking action to mitigate radon is something you may need to consider.
What is EcoQube’s power supply specification?
The EcoQube uses an external power supply adapter which is rated as: 5V 1A DC Adapter.
What time of year are radon levels highest?
The radon levels in our homes vary depending on the season. The highest concentrations generally happen during cooler months due to furnaces recirculating air from basements/crawl spaces and tightly closed-up homes. Research suggests testing for radon year-round, especially in newer, more energy-efficient homes that are extremely airtight and designed to not let heat out during the winter or air conditioning out during the summer.
How do I know if I should test for radon in my area?
Radon maps can provide areas where radon concentrations are shown to be higher and lower. However, radon levels vary from day to day and these maps do not show local variations. Radon levels also vary between houses and even between apartment neighbors in the same apartment building. The only way to get a reliable radon exposure level for a residence is to test.
How long do you have to be exposed to radon before it becomes a problem?
According to the EPA, there are no immediate symptoms from radon exposure but it has been found that radon-related lung cancer would occur between 5-25 years after exposure to higher than recommended levels of radon over long periods of time.
