What does Radon Mitigation involve?
Essentially the purpose of a Radon Mitigation (aka Radon Reduction System) is to draw Radon from the ground under your home and expel it to the outside of your home. Once it is outside it is safe as the Radon particles are dispersed into a way lower concentration in open air.
Diagnostic testing is done by our C-NRPP professional which will determine the size of fan that your home will require to adequately vent the radon out of your home.
The Mitigation professional will then drill into the foundation of your home (in as convenient and well-placed area of your home as possible, usually your furnace room or an area that has been approved by the homeowner) in order to direct the Radon gas out and away from your home.
All pipes as well as the fan will be placed and the system will be sealed in order to produce maximum system efficiency. This includes sealing any visible radon entry points in your home.
Your Radon Mitigation system will then be tested and checked to ensure it is running properly and you will be given an on site digital scan to show the radon reduction in real time. Your system will be installed to C-NRPP standards which is what is recommended by Health Canada.
If you don’t already have your own Radon measurement device we can provide you with a long term Radon test (Alpha Track Kit) that will need a minimum of 91 days of data. Once the testing period has concluded you can send it for testing (lab analysis and return envelope will be included). This test should verify that your Radon levels have been drastically reduced and your home is now much safer for you and your family! Congratulations!
My home is roughed in for a Radon system, it should now cost substantially less right?
While this is true in some situations, it may not be true for all. While coring into the foundation seems like it would be a lot of work, on the scope of installing the whole system it may not be the largest part of the work that needs to be done. And since many home builders don’t have on site Radon mitigation experts consulting during the building process there are times that the mitigation rough in is placed in an incorrect spot, or has been filled with incorrect materials etc. While sometimes this step being done can save some time, having this step completed incorrectly can actually add time to the project by having to fix the mistake and then install the system. This is why having your free quote is essential to knowing the true cost of the work that needs to be completed.
Why is there such a difference in pricing for Radon Mitigation quotes?
There can be a variety of reasons for this! In some cases, maybe a few things can be missed in a quote, such as dual furnaces, higher grade exteriors, in floor heating, sealing of floors in an undeveloped basement, quality of materials/fans used etc. There have also been some reports of companies sending certified professionals to do the measurement and quoting and then having uncertified labourers come to complete the work. This is not ok!
Whoever you choose to do your work, should be able to provide you with their mitigation certification on site or at least in advance of the work being done. Having uncertified labourers complete your work can decrease price as the labor costs are reduced due to lack of training and education in that field. Pricing can also be dependent on the quality of materials we use schedule 40 PVC pipe, top of the line fans and really plan the routing of the pipe and the entire system placement to ensure highest quality performance as well as the most aesthetically pleasing install.
