What are the steps involved in reducing my radon?
The most common type of mitigation system is called Active Soil Depressurization (ASD). This system works by sucking air (and therefore the radon) from beneath the foundation of a home and exhausting it outside. Installation of an ASD system generally consists of drilling a hole through the concrete basement floor, and then attaching a pipe so that air can be moved from the gravel and soil beneath the home. This air is pulled by a fan, and ducted out of the home through more pipe. The entire system is sealed, so that there is no communication between the system and the inside of the home.
What are the costs involved in the system?
A Radon Mitigation system can be compared to installing a heating system into your home and the cost can vary depending on the installation requirements of a house. Typically an install can range from $2,500 to $5,000.
Data from our Radon Reduction Sweepstakes Reports has shown that, for hundreds of mitigation systems installed from 2013 through 2021, the average cost is approximately $2,700.
