Thank you so much for the information. I will look into getting a test.

Do you know how often you should test for it?

The problem with the electric companies is that they deny that the electromagnetic fields that come from transformers have any ill effects, BUT THIS IS NOT THE ONLY DANGER COMING FROM ELECTRIC TRANSFORMERS:-

Transformers were constructed using highly toxic chemicals such as Polychlorinated Biphenyls, which can cause cancer. Whether Polychlorinated Biphenyls are still used in modern transformers, I do not know, but many older existing transformers certainly contained such chemicals, and may still be leaking this toxic stuff into the local environment.

So the ill-health or cancer clusters around transformers has probably more to do with the leaking Polychlorinated Biphenyls from transformers, rather than any electrical or magnetic disturbances that the transformers create (but these electric and magnetic effects may contribute too).

All homes built in the county after 1993 HAVE to have had a passive radon mitigation installed. Radon testing still recommended and the passive system can be made active with a fan or additional mitigation. We bought a house that was at 3.7; fan lowered to 2.2.

The DHEC site lists certified radon inspectors.
