I have been wanting to buy a continuous radon monitor (CRM) since I started my inspections business. The problem? They're $1200. Each. I need to have multiple machines as they are sometimes in homes and sometimes out for calibration.
I finally went for it and ordered a brand new Sun Nuclear 1028 that should be here in a couple weeks. I have lost 4 jobs due to not having a CRM and I do not want to lose any more. I can start offering radon stand alone tests now as well.
The issue I forsee running into now is that I need to do a LOT of radon testing to make buying more of them viable. While I want as many radon tests as I can book, I can only book one at a time for now due to the single machine. It will be nice to have one for placing during home inspections though and that alone should help to secure me work from the agents that did not use me due to not having a machine.
I plan to purchase another monitor in the near future and build up to 10 eventually. That will give me the ability to perform multiple tests at a time as they sometimes need to be in the house for 60 hours.
