Radon mitigation refers to methods used to reduce the levels of radon gas in a home or building.
The most common method to reduce radon gas is through a process called sub-slab depressurization, or occasionally referred to as soil suction. This process involves drilling a small hole in the concrete floor of your home, and then running a pipe with a fan on it to the outside. This pulls the air containing radon gas out from under the concrete slab and allows it to exit to the outdoors while by-passing your house.
The fan is specialized for radon mitigation use and your certified mitigation professional will carefully analyze the soil under your house and other conditions to determine which fan is most suitable.
In Canada, the code allows for the fan to be installed in the basement, due to our harsh climate. The fans are very quiet and use about as much energy as a 60-watt light bulb. They are designed to run continuously.
