Kentucky Radon Information

Kentucky Radon Program:

Radon Website: Website
Radon Contact: Clay Hardwick
Active Radon Program: Yes
Require License for Radon Professionals: No

Kentucky is the 37th most expansive state and the 26th most populous. The state has an active 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 page.

The radon levels in Kentucky are above average in many areas of the state. This is due to an abundance in karst geological formations, comprised of limestone, dolomite and gypsum. That means there’s an increased risk for all homeowners, which is why we recommend testing exposure levels at least twice a year.

Kentucky Radon Levels

Map of Kentucky 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.

Kentucky Radon Statistics

Kentucky has 120 counties and 30 (25%) 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. Kentucky's state radon zone average is 1.49, which is the average of all county zone ratings the EPA has assigned the state, ranking it 17 among all states.

Kentucky Radon Contractor License Information

Does Kentucky require contractors to be licensed? No.

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

Kentucky Radon Real Estate Requirements

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

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