Radon Gas Mitigation Systems
If you have got to the point where you need to invest in a radon gas mitigation system because the levels in your home are way to high. Then we can help you out with that problem with the fitting of one of our mitigation systems.
Depending on the foundations of your home it will determine what type of system you will need. If your home is sitting on a slab of concrete or if you have a basement or crawl space then this will determine what type of system we will need to install.
- Sub slab depressurization is a very common and effective method to reduce radon. A few suction pipes will be laid through the concrete slab from outside your home. The higher the radon the more pipes that will be laid. All of the pipes will be fed back to one suction source. An efficient radon gas fan will be connected to the suction pipes that will pull the gas from under the home and vent it away from the house through a pipe up the side of the house.
- We can utilize your existing drain pipes if they are present in the home. Drain tiles and perforated pipes that drain water from your home to keep foundations dry can have suction applied to reduce the levels of radon greatly.
- Our basement sump hole suction systems are often used for not only emergency water pumps in case of a flooding but also we can have the radon suction pipe located here.
- We can install block wall suction in basements that are built with breeze block very easily. This will remove radon from the affected area and depressurize the block wall which is like the sub slab suction method. The two methods are normally combined to create a radon free environment.
- If you have a crawl space under your home then we suggest laying a plastic sheet first that is thick enough to trap the gas and use soil suction to extract the radon gas from under the sheet and away from your property.
- There is also another method of having a fan vent out the gas but the crawl space needs to be well ventilated. It will force the gas out of additional vents we can install to stop a buildup. This is not ideal because it can increase your energy costs to run the fan but it is a solution.
- Sealing any cracks in the foundation of your home will help reduce the gas levels and it is not that expensive to do. It can lower levels dramatically and it’s a simple task.
- We use a fan to blow air from the home into the basement which is called home and room pressurization. The aim is to circulate air and pressurize the home to keep radon out but you need to make sure all the windows on the downstairs floors are shut. It’s not an ideal solution but it’s one that can help in the efforts of radon reduction.
- HRV is known as a heat recovery ventilator and this is a good mitigation technique for radon. We can install this system to help increase ventilation. They are ideal to ventilate all parts of your home and are perfect when installed to ventilate a basement.
