What is Radon Mitigation?
If you find that your home has high radon levels, there are ways to reduce the concentrations. Even very high levels can be reduced to acceptable levels. There are several methods that can be used to lower radon levels in your home. Some techniques prevent radon from entering your home while others reduce radon levels after it has entered. EPA generally recommends methods which prevent the entry of radon.
One method that prevents the entry of radon into your home is called active soil depressurization. This system consists of PVC pipe connected to the soil either through a hole in the slab, a sump lid connection, or beneath a plastic sheet in a crawl space. Attached to the pipe is a quiet, continuously operating fan that discharges the radon to a safe location outside of the home.
- Average installation cost: $1,200
- Average operating cost in Colorado: $4.00/month
- Expected life span of fan: 12 years
- Fan replacement cost: $145 - $200
