My new home came with a builder-installed passive radon system, is that good enough?

When it comes to Radon Gas, you want to be sure you're not living with dangerous levels in your home. 

Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States, and the leading cause for non-smokers has home buyers concerned, and rightly so. 

Many people who are having a new home built will just have a builder-installed passive radon system installed, and they will be good to go.
