Radon Mitigation on Existing Homes

The process in which radon entry is controlled is referred to as mitigation. Radon can effectively be controlled and lowered in homes with elevated methods. Though there are many different ways to mitigate the house, Active Soil Depressurization (ASD) is the most common and very effective.

The Active Soil Depressurization concept is quite simple. In the lowest level of the home a penetration is made into the sub-slab. Soil and/or stone is removed through the cored hole.

Active Soil Depressuraztion

A series of pipe is run vertically and exits the conditioned area.

Once entering unconditioned space being the exterior or the attic, a fan is installed in series with the piping and is exhausted in a safe manner. (according to the EPA Requirements.

In addition radon entry points will be sealed, and post testing will be done to ensure that the mitigation system is drawing only the gases beneath the slab.

Active Soil Depressuraztion

An Active Soil Depressurization system is quite affordable. Most systems are installed from $1100-1600. The ASD will lower radon levels 99.9% of the time.

Building a new home? Passive mitigation system can be installed quite inexpensively while under construction. A passive mitigation system will prepare you to activate (install a fan) inexpensively and effectively.

First a hole is cored though the lowest level slab.

Then a series of piping will travel through the stud walls into the attic.

In the attic, space will be made for the fan, and electrical provisions will be left (optional), and the pipe will exhaust through the roof
