Radon Fans

Radon Rid uses Radon Away fans. The highest quality fan in the industry.

  • Energy Efficient
  • Designed to allow water to filter through exterior fan housing
  • Five year warranty on performance
  • No air leakage

We use a switch box with a lock for outside radon mitigations. Radon fans are always running and while NRPP requirements call for a turn off switch, the fans should never be turned off. Radon concentrations will go back to normal levels in just a few short hours.

Which fan is chosen depends upon the vacuum pressure needed, based upon sub-slab conditions, and air volume needed which is based upon cavity sizes and tightness of the slab.

A bigger fan is not always the best option. Oversized fans can bring excessive noise and energy loss and problems. Careful attention to the design of the system is more important for homes that may need larger fan systems.

If the Radon mitigation system needs to move large volumes of air, the pipe is more important than the strength of the fan. 3″ pipe moves up to 80 cfm while 4″ pipe moves up to 150 cfm.

The Radon fan needs to be set in an unoccupied space due to the possibility of an exhaust leak. The Radon fan must be outside or in an attic and doesn’t have livable space above it. It can be in a garage if it has exposed rafters/trusses.

TESTING

The first step is to take care of the health and safety of you and your loved ones by testing your home for radon. At Radon Rid, our experts use modern equipment and radon monitoring technology to deliver a report with our findings, that show radon levels as recorded over a 48-hour sampling period.

NEW CONSTRUCTION

Before starting construction on a new home ins is very important to test the soil of the property you will be building on for radon. That’s not all, it just as important to have the home test for radon after it has been built. You should also consider installing a dampness control system in your home that will alert you if there are high levels of dampness.

MITIGATION

If your tests indicate levels of radon that require attention, our team of engineers and technicians will design and install a custom radon mitigation system to effectively and safely move radon and other soil gasses out of your home. We also take additional measures to seal and close gaps in the foundation and drains that could let soil gasses into the home.

NEW CONSTRUCTION

With new home construction projects, it is important to determine the level of radon that could be present in the soil before the home is built. It’s also important to have the new home retested for radon levels immediately following occupancy. We also highly recommend installing an Active Dampness Control System (ADC) with every new build.
