    While the EPA has some recommendations to radon testing it generally leaves requirements up to individual states. You'll need to check with your state radon board to see if licensing is required.

    Lowest cost? See your still thinking like a builder.

    The best equipment and programs don't come cheap.

    Spend some time checking the rules/regulations that home inspectors have to follow in Ohio. Goes for radon testing as well.

    As RH noted ... 'cheap' does not cut it when it comes to providing a quality service.

    If you approach this profession with 'cheap' in mind you will become just another of the many "drive-by" inspectors selling services for $199.00.

    Don't even think about going there if you take pride in your work and this profession.
