Radon Mitigation System Cost

Radon mitigation system cost can vary depending on the age, construction, and size of the home. The radon mitigation system cost of a crawlspace can be significantly higher than a standard basement only installation. A crawl space radon mitigation system is called a Sub-membrane Active Depressurization system. This system is labor intensive and requires a radon retarder to be installed to cover the entire crawlspace area. Radon mitigation system cost of a standard basement requires less materials and labor and therefore is usually cheaper. Basement ASD systems can vary in price according to the age of home. Older homes will require different higher suction fans while newer homes require less suction more air flow.

The 3 primary kinds of Radon mitigation systems are:

  1. Basement Active Sub-Slab Depressurization systems.
  2. Crawlspace Sub-membrane Active Depressurization Systems.
  3. Floating Slab Active Depressurization Systems.

What everyone ought to know about radon gas and lung cancer

Radon gas

Radon gas

Radon gas

is estimated to cause 21,000 lung cancer deaths in the U.S. Per year. This is more than drunk driving (17,400), falls in the home (8,000), drownings (3,900), and home fires (2,800). Think about all the public and media attention drunk driving  gets. By law Indiana has lead-based paint and lead-based paint hazards forms that are given before the sale or lease of housing built before 1978,  but not for Radon. Why is this? One out of three homes have elevated radon levels in Indiana. We all live in homes and radon gas is the 2nd leading cause of lung cancer.

what is radon?

Radon is a cancer-causing, radioactive gas. It comes from the natural decay and breakdown of Uranium and Radium in the ground . You cant see it, smell it, or taste it but it’s there. This gas permeates up through the soil and accumulates in your home. When you breathe air containing radon the Alpha particles stick to your lung cells and small explosions occur. This deforms the cell changing the DNA structure. What is Radon? A lung cancer risk like smoking.

Can plumbers install radon reduction system?

Radon reduction systemMany times I have gone into newer homes built by local contractors  in Richmond, Indiana and found that the general contractor / builder had the plumber stick a pipe in the basement floor and call it a

radon reduction system

For good reason the state of Indiana has a law that all Radon Mitigation system installers be Licensed , insured, and certified by the National Environmental Health Association and National Radon Proficiency Program. In my opinion this could be considered fraud and open the door to lawsuits when a loved one gets cancer. When installing a passive sub-slab Radon reduction system you must first install some type of gas collection mechanism. There will be some type of gas mat or corrugated piping submerged in the aggregate under the slab. We call this “communication” and this opens the path for Radon gas movement. The stack pipe inside the chase of the home which is usually near the center. This helps create a phenomenon called thermal stack effect. This creates a natural flow of Radon gas that travels through the pipe and then out the roof top. When done properly over half of all these homes will never have high radon levels. Now ask your builder… did he have Dave the plumber install your radon reduction system?
