Idaho Radon Information

Idaho Radon Program:

Radon Website: Website
Radon Contact: James Faust
Active Radon Program: Yes
Require License for Radon Professionals: No

Idaho is the 14th most expansive state and the 39th most populous. It also happens to be the seventh least densely populated state in the entire US.

The state has a radon program, dedicated to educating citizens about the risks associated with the deadly gas. You can find more information on Radon, testing and mitigation at the official Idaho government page.

As of May, 2010 the radon levels in Idaho are well above average in many areas of the state. That means there’s an increased risk for all homeowners, which is why we recommend testing exposure levels at least twice a year.

Idaho Radon Levels

Map of Idaho 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.

Idaho Radon Statistics

Idaho has 44 counties and 19 (43%) 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. Idaho's state radon zone average is 1.68, which is the average of all county zone ratings the EPA has assigned the state, ranking it 21 among all states.

Idaho Radon Contractor License Information

Does Idaho require contractors to be licensed? No.

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

Idaho Radon Real Estate Requirements

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

However both the state of Idaho and the EPA recommend that a home or residence should be tested before a real estate transaction is carried out. Even though Idaho 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. Idaho radon mitigation is not expensive compared to the dangers and a system can be implemented in a relatively short period of time.
