How to install a radon system? The answer to is question is that Lifetime Radon Mitigation has expert civil workers, inspectors and installer. We follow all the rules and regulations of Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and National Radon Safety Board (NRSB). According to EPA, if the level of radon is above 4pCi/L or above then it should be mitigated and we are at your service to do that.
The installation process involves following three steps; Drilling, fan installation and piping assembly.
Step by step explanation of installation system
Firstly, when there is need to install a radon mitigation system, the place is analyzed that what is the condition of ground, how much quantity of gas is possibly present, what fan will be suitable for the smooth flow of the gas and what should be the outdoor drain location? For all these aspects visual survey is planned and everything is deeply analyzed.
After the complete survey, the first step is the location of the hole to be drilled. Suitable location in basement is chosen and the drilling is done. The drilling is done with the help of drill bits. During drilling the cleaning is also induced for the smooth flow of the gas. When drilling is complete, next step is the installation of the indoor piping assembly starting from the hole. Pipe is attached with the hole with glue type material to block any kind of leakages and providing only one path for the flow of the gas. Along with this, the whole basement is searched for any kind of hole or cracks and if cracks are found they are blocked. After this the indoor piping assembly is built along with the wall to minimize the difficulties.
When the drilling and indoor piping is done, next step is the installation of the fan. Fan is the key device in the radon mitigation process as it produces draft for the gases to flow outward. The fan speed is adjusted according to the required value which was examined in the survey report. There is also body for the fan. This body has capacity to resist ultraviolet radiations and can long for years.
Once the fan in installed in the assembly, next part is the installation of the outdoor drain housing. This housing is installed just above the fan vertically up. No cap is installed at the end of the outdoor drain housing. It depends on various factors. Main factor is that if something get into the pipe fan has capacity to blow it back outward. The cap may cause the freezing of the gas which will be a hindrance in winter season.
In this way the radon mitigation assembly is installed and the installation process is less than a week. Cost of the radon system can vary from $1500 to $2500. Our radon mitigation systems are the best and only solution to the radon emission problems and we don’t compromise on any kind of detail no matter how small it is.
