Alabama Radon Information

Alabama Radon Program:

Radon Website: Website
Radon Contact: James L. McNees
Active Radon Program: Yes
Require License for Radon Professionals: No

Alabama is the 30th most expansive state and the 23rd most populous. From December 1986 through May 1987, the State Department of Public Health and the EPA conducted studies to determine the probability of elevated radon levels in Alabama homes. These studies consisted of 789 tests that were carried out in residences of volunteers throughout the State. Additionally, a random sampling of residences resulted in an additional 1326 tests. Nearly 2500 of those tests have been 4.0 pCi/l or higher. Of those, 245 have been between 20 and 100 pCi/l, and 9 have exceeded 100 pCi/l. As more test results surface, it has become apparent that radon is a significant problem everywhere in Alabama.

The state also has a very commendable Radon program, with a wide variety of resources and information available on the official site.

The radon levels in the state of Alabama are above average. That means there’s an increased risk for all homeowners, which is why we recommend testing exposure levels at least twice a year.

Alabama appears to be more susceptible to increased Radon levels in certain areas thanks to a type of carbonate rock called Karst. Karst is prevalent all over the United States - so it’s not just Alabama affected by them. Karst rich fissures serve as conduits for Radon, channeling the dangerous gas in unpredictable ways. Because of this, it’s difficult to determine which areas of Alabama are more likely to see elevated radon levels - every resident in the state should have their home or business tested.

Alabama Radon Levels

Map of Alabama Radon Levels

Zone 1 (1): Potential for radon levels above 4 pCi/L according to EPA
Zone 2 (2): Potential for radon levels between 2 pCi/L and 4 pCi/L according to the EPA
Zone 3 (3): Lowest EPA level with expected radon levels at or below 2 pCi/L
Disclaimer: It is strongly recommended that all households, schools and office spaces test radon levels individually. The EPA Radon Zone data is not an indicator of individual test results, but a guideline for strategic planning. Toxic radon levels can be found in all counties, regardless of their zone rating. While we make efforts to keep this information up to date, it is derived from third­party sources which may not be accurate or reflect the most current statistics.

Alabama Radon Statistics

Alabama has 67 counties and 13 (19%) have been assigned Zone 1 counties by the EPA. Zone 1 counties have the highest potential to have homes test higher than 4 pCi/L. Alabama's state radon zone average is 2.12, which is the average of all county zone ratings the EPA has assigned the state, ranking it 33 among all states.

Alabama Radon Contractor License Information

Does Alabama require contractors to be licensed? No.

What are the licensing requirements? There are no state mandated requirements to become a licensed radon contractor in Alabama. Those looking for a radon certification can take qualified third party courses that are offered through the NRPP or AARST.

Alabama Radon Real Estate Requirements

Does the state of Alabama require radon testing for all real estate transactions? No

However both the state of Alabama and the EPA recommend that a home or residence should be tested before a real estate transaction is carried out. Even though Alabama does not require radon testing, we certainly recommend you have a test performed before you purchase a home. If you decide to perform a test after and find elevated levels, there is no reason to panic. Alabama radon mitigation is not expensive compared to the dangers and a system can be implemented in a relatively short period of time.
