To learn how Radon Mitigation Systems, LLC can lower the Radon levels in your home, call us for a free in-home estimate.
We will design a radon reduction system as an integral part of your home. The system will be designed so as not to create additional environmental, health, or safety hazards, nor will it compromise the integrity and comfort of your home environment. Installation, operation, and maintenance cost will be determined and discussed during the design stage.
The most cost-effective of the approaches we use is sub-slab depressurization. This system integrates PVC pipes with an exhaust fan. We connect a PVC pipe to the soil either through a hole in the slab of your basement floor, a sump pump lid, or beneath a plastic sheet in the crawl space. This system creates a lower pressure in the soil both in and around the structure when compared to the indoor pressure, thus preventing the transference of radon and other soil gases to the inside of your home.
Additionally, we seal cracks, holes, and other openings to the substructure of the building to reduce the amount of flow necessary for controlling the pressure difference between house and soil. This increases system effectiveness, while also reducing thermal losses and fan requirements.
After completing the installation, a professional independent testing lab should re-test your indoor Radon levels. This post-completion test provides proof that we have done our job correctly, and will remove any conflict of interest (from both Radon Mitigation Systems and the homeowner).
Answer: Above roof eave - 12 inches is good practice and a minimum of 10 feet from any opening, less than 2-feet below exhaust to prevent re-entry of radon into the home.
Answer: Schedule 40 reduces noise from air turbulence.
Answer: This is possible because the system vent moist air out of the home prior to it entering your home.
Answer: All home structures are different and designs vary. We want to install the most efficient system. One that is custom designed for your home. Costs will vary with design.
Answer: The physics of Radon takes 24 hours to stabilize to a testable level after a mitigation system is installed.
