Add-On Services

Energy Assessment

Starting at $150

Take a deeper look at the building's air leakage, insulation and HVAC systems to better understand how much energy it uses. This information can be used to help verify the seller's annual fuel use disclosure, inform future retrofits and qualify for Efficiency Maine rebates.

Radon Air Testing

Starting at $150

Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer. High levels of radon gas occur naturally in Maine soil and water, and can move up into a house from the ground. The house then traps the radon in the air inside. Radon gas can also dissolve into well water, which is then released into the air when you use the water. A simple air test can show whether home radon levels meet state and national safety guidelines.

Radon Water Testing

Starting at $100

Buildings that have confirmed elevated radon levels in the indoor air should also test their well water for radon. Radon in the water supply can increase the indoor radon levels, although radon entering the home through water will be a small source of risk compared to the levels of radon entering through the soil.

Comprehensive Water Testing

Starting at $175

Around 10% of wells in Maine have elevated levels of arsenic, radon, uranium, or other harmful chemicals that can cause cancer. Biological contaminants in well water can also impact physical health. The only way to know if well water is safe to use is to test it.

Test includes Arsenic, Calcium, Chloride, Copper, Fluoride, Hardness, Iron, Lead, Magnesium, Manganese, Nitrate Nitrogen, Nitrite Nitrogen, pH, Sodium, Uranium, Coliform Bacteria & E. coli (enumerated).
