The Radon Reduction Sweepstakes is a Canada-wide contest run by Take Action on Radon (TAOR) in conjunction with the Canadian Association of Radon Scientists and Technologists (CARST). The contest provides 10 prizes of up to $1,000 each to homeowners who have tested their home for radon and used a C-NRPP professional to reduce levels to below Canada’s recommended guideline of 200 Bq/m3. A key part of TAOR’s mandate is to encourage Canadians to take action on radon, and the Sweepstakes does just that with the possibility of a cash reward.
The Sweepstakes is an excellent source of actual mitigation effectiveness and cost data and compelling testimonials from participants. Being able to reference actual numbers when estimating the cost of a radon mitigation system is very helpful, both to homeowners and to policy-makers. The data comparing the pre- and post- mitigation radon levels in homes mitigated by certified professionals shows that they are routinely reducing radon levels to well below both Health Canada and the World Health Organization’s guidelines.
The Radon Reduction Sweepstakes is continuing for it’s third year in 2019-2020. To find more details about the upcoming Radon Reduction Sweepstakes or to enter the contest for 2019/2020 click here.
The Radon Reduction Sweepstakes is an opportunity for our Take Action on Radon Stakeholders to provide an encouragement to homeowners who have take action to reduce their radon risk and so we have developed some tools to help our Take Action on Radon Stakeholders to communicate with your homeowners, previous testing clients or mitigation customers.
