The 2 most common types of radon detectors used for testing houses are short term and long term detectors. The short term detectors can be used for a period of 2-7 days, the long term detectors can be used for a period of 3-12 months. Since the radon concentration inside a house varies over time, measurements gathered over a longer period of time will give a more accurate indication of the radon level in a house. Health Canada recommends that houses be tested for a minimum of 3 months, ideally between September and April when windows and doors are typically kept closed
