One out of five CT homes likely have elevated levels of radon gas

State health officials are urging Connecticut residents to test their home for radon and take other steps to ensure they have a healthy home.

A host of environmental hazards exist in the home that can negatively impact our health. Indoor air pollutants like radon, tobacco smoke and carbon monoxide, contaminated private well water, lead-based paint in older homes, and asbestos-containing materials in our homes put our health at risk. These household dangers can make us very sick, and lead to increased health care costs, poor school performance, and missed days at work and school.
