Don’t panic about elevated radon levels in your home

ELEVATED RADON LEVELS FOUND IN A HOME SHOULD BE NO REASON FOR PANIC

Radon can be reduced! Much like any other problem that can be present in a house, such as a leaky roof, or a water drainage concern, a radon reduction system can be installed and successfully lower high radon levels. In fact, out of all the potential problems a home may have, radon is one of the easiest to discover and fix!

Radon gas can enter a home in many ways and does so without being detected because we cannot sense it. Radon is a naturally occurring odorless gas than can’t be seen, often times accumulating in dangerous levels inside homes without notice. The only way to know if your home is safe from radon gas is to have your home tested.

We’ve installed thousands of radon mitigation systems all throughout West Michigan.

quality work

Installing radon mitigation systems in residential homes is our specialty. Every home is as unique and different as the person who lives there. We pay very close attention to detail and respect the property of our customers. We strive to be professional in every aspect of our work.

Radon mitigation work often requires tedious planning and preparation. We hold a certified builders license so we can route radon systems in tricky spots, hiding them in discrete areas for aesthetic reasons.

We have the experience to install radon mitigation systems wherever possible, exhausting every option to meet the needs of our customers.

Radon is the number one cause of lung cancer among non-smokers, according to EPA estimates. Overall, radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer. Radon is responsible for about 21,000 lung cancer deaths every year.

HOW EXPENSIVE ARE THESE RADON SYSTEMS TO INSTALL AND OPERATE?

In some cases trying to estimate the cost of a radon mitigation system can be very difficult. Often times we need to look at the property in person in order to give an accurate quote.

A reduction system consists of plastic pipe connected to the soil either through a hole in a slab, via 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 outdoors.

Typical installation cost: $600 – $1,500 (dependent on many variables)

  • Average operating cost: $3.00/month

  • Expected life span of fan: 11 years

  • Fan replacement cost: $145-$300

  • Periodic maintenance: None
