Radon testing offered in Central Oregon

Service provided in Crook, Deschutes and Jefferson counties

Radon testing offered locally

Clean Energy Works has added radon testing and mitigation to the services it offers Oregon homeowners.

The Portland-based nonprofit has been providing energy upgrades to eligible homeowners in select Oregon counties since 2009, according to a news release. It provides a free home-energy assessment, connects homeowners with approved contractors to make upgrades and helps with financing. The agency offers services to those who own and occupy single-family homes built before 1993 in Crook, Deschutes and Jefferson counties.

For its radon testing, Clean Energy Works provides a test kit and will have an adviser discuss the results.

Radon, an invisible, odorless and tasteless naturally occurring gas, is the second-leading cause of lung cancer after smoking, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, which also has information about radon testing.
