Honeywell has been in the indoor air quality business for three decades. In response to the need for reliable radon testing and mitigation, the company offers screening and testing equipment and is training heating and air conditioning contractors nationwide in effective radon testing and mitigation techniques. Honeywell manufactures three radon screening devices: the ''First Screen'' carbon canister, the ''At Ease'' digital radon monitor and the ''Professional Radon Monitor.'' All three devices are offered through Honeywell radon distributors and have been EPA-evaluated and accepted. Honeywell also offers comprehensive radon seminars to heating, air conditioning and ventilating contractors entering the radon detection and mitigation business. The courses are offered in conjunction with local and state environmental and health agencies and meet national EPA standards for training. The courses qualify graduates to take a national EPA certification examination. Radon is an odorless, colorless gas produced by the natural decay of radium and uranium in rocks, soil and water. It was first identified as a problem in underground mines in the 1930s, and since then its effects on people have been carefully studied by state and national health agencies. According to the National Cancer Institute, radon gas is a major health risk, second only to cigarette smoking as a cause of lung cancer. In September 2003, the U.S. Surgeon General issued a national health advisory stating that most homes should be tested for radon. Currently, the EPA is also conducting tests on radon exposure in schools. Honeywell is an international control company that provides products, systems and services for the home and building, industrial, space and aviation, and defense and marine markets.
