Factors That Determine a Radon Mitigation System CostFactors That Determine a Radon Mitigation System Cost
There are a few factors that determine a radon mitigation system’s cost. This cost can range widely depending on the location, contractor, and brand of equipment used. The cost will also depend on aesthetics and the location of the home. Most homeowners prefer to have their radon mitigation system hidden out of sight, but if this is not possible, an extra layer of insulation may be necessary. A properly installed radon mitigation system can save you money by lowering your energy bills.
Poor Installation Can Also Be Dangerous
While there are several factors that determine a radon mitigation system cost, you may be able to install the system yourself if you have the time and know how to do it. However, the most important aspect is installation. This is because the effectiveness of the system depends on how well it is installed. Poor installation can lead to liability issues for homeowners, companies, and individuals. In addition to resulting in a less effective system, poor installation can also be dangerous.
The EPA recommends that homes with radon levels of four parts per million (pCi) per liter or more not install a radon mitigation system. But this level is not the limit and requires repeated tests to determine if a home needs a mitigation system. If your radon level is below four parts per million, you can reduce the concentration of radon by sealing cracks in the walls, covering the sump pump openings, and applying waterproof paint to walls.
