Radon mitigation systems are installed into homes to reduce radon levels. The most common type of radon mitigation system is called ‘Active Soil depressurization'(ASD) system. An ASD system includes a fan that will create a vacuum under a basement floor and send the radon outside before it can enter your home.
It can be scary if after a long term radon test you find out that your home has a high level of radon. Rest assured, knowing that the radon level in any home can be lowed below the Health Canada guidelines of 200 Bq/m3. In fact we guarantee that our systems will be under 100 Bq/m3. You will feel safe in your home again, with a properly designed and installed Radon Mitigation System.
The radon mitigation professionals at Performance Radon Inc are also certified by C-NRPP for radon measurement (testing). Our radon specialists can help you feel safe in your home knowing that the radon levels are reduced. Your radon mitigation system will be unobtrusive, quiet and efficient. Get a radon mitigation system that is fully tested and verified to ensure it is performing as designed and reducing the radon levels in your home.
About Radon Mitigation Systems
Regina homes have high radon levels because of the elements within our soils, combined with a long and cold winter. During the winter the warm air rises and causes your home to pull in the radon from under the basement floor. The colder the outdoor temperature, the more likely your home will pull in radon. By installing a radon mitigation system, a fan will draw the radon from under your basement floor and send it outside before it can make it into your home.
If your radon levels are between 200 Bq/m3 and 600 Bq/m3 then Health Canada recommends that you take action within 2 years. If your levels are above 600 Bq/m3 then you should take action within one year. You can choose to take action as soon as you want, at any radon level you want. These are only recommendations set by Health Canada. Radon, in any amount, is not safe. The best environment for human and animal health is always to have the lowest radon level possible.
A typical radon mitigation system is called an ‘Active Sub-slab Depressurization'(ASD) System. This involves using a radon mitigation fan to create a vacuum under the lowest level. Drawing the air from the lowest level will remove the radon and safely send it outside where it is diluted, before it can enter your home.
Typically it can cost between $50 to $100 per year to run a radon fan continuously .
Every house and situation is different and so each radon mitigation system is different. Every home or business has a unique radon mitigation system that is designed especially for your home. During the mitigation process it is critical to seal up the lowest floor to ensure the system is working at optimal efficiency, saving you money and lowering noise.
