  • Free Accurate Estimates with a Price Match Guarantee
  • Guaranteed to lower Radon levels below the EPA Recommendation

 

Radon Mitigation FAQ

How Much Does Radon Mitigation Cost?

The cost to install a radon mitigation system varies based on the complexity of the job. There are over 20 fan variations that we choose from depending on soil conditions and building types. On average, our systems cost $1200 for the complete install which includes post-mitigation testing with lab results.

What Maintenance is Required?

We design our systems to be maintenance-free and the only thing that will need replacement is the fan about every 10 years. We have seen fans last 20 years or more but when they do fail, a new fan can be installed for around $250. Our systems use all stainless steel fasteners to assure longevity of the system structure.

How Much Does it Cost to Run a System?

Using Central Hudsons average of $0.13/kilowatt, the normal 60 watt fan will cost $68 per year to operate. We prefer to use Energy Star rated fans on our installs.

How Long Will it Need to Run?

Generally we tell customers to leave the fan running all the time but in certain situations we are able to install a programmable timer. Limiting the fan use could provide benefits to longevity and noise control.

How Long Does it Take to Install

Most of the installs take around 6-8 hours and can be completed in one day. In basements with multiple levels or crawlspaces it could take 2-3 days depending on complexity.

Are There Benefits Other Than Reducing Radon

The overall air quality of the home and basement should improve after a system is installed. Fan manufacturers indicate up to 2 gallons of water vapor per day can be pulled from the soil. We have also found buried building materials and other problems producing odors which the system does a great job pumping out of the structure.

Radon Mitigation System Types

Sub-Slab Depressurization (SSD)- This mitigation method involves drilling a hole in a basement slab and creating a vacuum point to extract radon from beneath the slab to release it above the structure’s roofline via installed piping. Communication tests are performed to optimize suction points for better air flow.

Sub-Membrane Depressurization (SMD) – A high density polyethylene sheet laid on earthen crawl spaces and edges are sealed on the foundation walls with polyurethane. This creates and airtight seal under the sheet where we can install the radon system to create depressurization. This method has the added benefit of reducing moisture in the crawlspace.

Sump/Drain-Tile Depressurization (DTD) – The process of using an existing sump pump or drain tiles. By applying a vacuum to these areas one can very effectively collect radon laden soil gas without effecting the integrity of the systems ability to collect and divert water from the home.
