About the American Society of Home Inspectors,® Inc.
In 1976, a group of visionary home inspectors with the common goal of building consumer awareness and enhancing the professionalism of their field established the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI). This not-for-profit professional association for home inspectors made its first order of business to establish and advocate high standards of practice and a strict code of ethics for the member community.
The Mission of ASHI is to meet the needs of its membership and promote excellence and exemplary practice within the profession.
ASHI is the most respected professional association for home inspectors in North America. Through ASHI’s continued efforts, ASHI’s Standards of Practice—covering all of a home’s major systems—are now part of many pieces of state legislation and are recognized by consumers as the authoritative standard for professional home inspection.
All Radalink Monitors utilize our pulsed ion chamber technology. Ambient air passively diffuses into the chamber in which the radon atoms (as well as the subsequent polonium decay products) disintegrate, emitting alpha particles.
The alphas (positively charged ions) create bursts of additional ion pairs by knocking electrons from surrounding air atoms. Negative ions will pulse to the positively charged probe; positive ions will pulse to the negatively charged cylinder wall. The pulses are counted by the electrometer and stored hourly by the computer. Detector efficiency is computed by exposures to known radon concentrations to determine the pulse counts per hour per pCi/l.
