Radon Mitigation System Installation

Neighbors Heating, Cooling and Plumbing radon technicians are trained extensively on the best practices for properly installing radon mitigation systems to pull radon from within the home and expel it outside the house. Each of our contractors are licensed to perform all radon services, and comply with all the radon gas industry's recommended practices to ensure the highest quality solutions have been provided.

Each radon mitigation system design varies depending on the structure of your home. Homes are generally categorized according to their foundation design. The existence of a basement, crawl space, or slab all determine the proper mitigation system needed. The following procedures are taken in most instances:

Common Radon Mitigation Procedures

As noted above, these procedures vary slightly depending on the type of system installed.

  • Forces need to be redirected from the "stack effect". The stack effect draws air from beneath your home and up into your living space. Depressurizing the soil beneath the structure allows for the radon gas to be redirected.
  • The radon gas is redirected. A hole is drilled into the slab, crawl space, or surrounding earth to create a suction point (sometimes more than one suction point is needed). The radon gas is vented through a PVC pipe that is connected to the hole. The pipe can be installed through the house or outside. Some newer homes have radon control systems installed that run through the home.
  • The radon gas is vented out, away from your home. The pipe is connected to a fan in the attic or to the top of the structure for proper ventilation.
  • Radon entry points are sealed. To resist gas entry, cracks are sealed using a urethane caulking compound.
  • A final system checklist is performed. The checklist makes sure the system adheres to US EPA Radon Mitigation Standards. Proper system labeling and proper fan installation is checked, as well as other key steps.
  • Retesting for radon. Retesting is done within 30 days of the system installation to ensure the system is working effectively.

Neighbors Heating, Cooling and Plumbing can offer a variety of payment options for your convenience. We know that radon gas mitigation is not always a budgeted household expense, and we'll work with you to make sure that you get the best value within your price options.
