I think it has to be weighed out from a profit based perspective, as well as the needs of your customers. Is there enough demand to support the cost of radon training, licensing, equipment, etc?
After all the expenses to get licensed how many radon tests need performed to break even? How many tests need performed for it to be a profitable addition to your business? Does your current E&O cover you or will you have to pay $100-$300extra to get Radon coverage?
Will you use charcoal canisters?
Will your clients want to wait several days for lab results? (This might determine if you have to use continuous monitors)
Can you afford the expense of buying/leasing continuous monitors?
Does your current E&O cover you or will you have to pay $100-$300extra to get Radon coverage?
Offering radon testing is not a cheap thing to do in areas where licensing is required. If you do a search on the board there are several threads with good information on all that is involved in offering radon testing.
