As an investigator, I think it's my responsibility to try and find any natural cause for what constitutes a haunting or ghostly activity. I am looking into getting equipment that can help me test a location for the presence of toxic gases and other possible contaminates.

Have any of the members here found some quality yet affordable ways of monitoring these contaminates? I am looking at some CO detectors, Radon detectors, CO2 detectors, and some HVAC equipment right now, and wanted to know if you have any suggestions.

This is the kind of outside the box thinking that I like to see. I've thought of many different factors in determining paranormal activity. Why not gases. I actually have a wish list from my professional equipment catalog and there are a lot of meters on it that measure such things. I don't think things such as carbon monoxide or possible radiation leaks should go unchecked. It think the more we can measure and the more we can rule out the greater the possibilty there is to be questioned when something actually does happen.

Ok professional equipment tends to be a bit on the pricey side. But it's a good starting point to at least see what you would want to get. At least if you get an idea you can always search other outlets to gain this equipment.

Omega Instruments makes a comprehensive line of test equipment for various gasses and other contaminates. It is an area we should consider if we intend to do a thorough research on a location. I agree with obtaining such equipment to the extent needed. What is needed will vary between locations though, not every contaminate is present at every location, especially if it is well ventilated or outside.
