If you just had a Radon Mitigation System installed in your Ohio home, you may be wondering, How Long Will My Mitigation System Last? 

For those of you who may have just moved into a home with an already installed radon mitigation system, you may also be wondering the same thing. 

Or maybe you need to have a radon mitigation system installed, but you want to make sure you aren't going to need to turn around and replace the system a year from now. 

Perhaps your home was built with a radon mitigation system and you are wondering if it is still working. Read our blog post: “My new home came with a builder installed passive radon test.

To determine the lifespan of a Radon Mitigation System there are a few factors that may make a difference in how long you can expect your system to last.

For example: 

Was your System Installed by a Licensed Company? 

This is important to know if you are wondering how long your system will last. If the removal system was installed by someone without the proper license, there will be no warranties or guarantees associated with the system.

This means, if your fan breaks down after a year, it will be up to you to replace it. 

Having your mitigation system installed by a licensed company will ensure that your system's fan comes with a 5-year manufacturer warranty and the rest of the system will be warrantied by the company. 

What do you mean the System will be Warrantied by the Company? 

When a licensed company installs your radon mitigation system, the system itself will come with a lifetime warranty. 

That being said, the fan is separate from the system warranty. The fan is warrantied by the manufacturer for 5 years. If it breaks after the 5 years it up, so say in year 6, you will be responsible for paying to replace the fan. 

Once the system has been installed and the radon levels are below the EPA recommended level, Radon Eliminator guarantees the system's life as long as you have a working fan. 

So if you need your fan replaced 20 years from now, the system will still be effective as long as you replace the fan. You will not need to relocate the initial suction point or reroute the piping just because you need the fan replaced. 

How much Longer after the Manufacturer Warranty will my Fan Last? 

Although we cannot guarantee that your fan will last 5,10, or 15 years past the manufacturer warranty, we can say that as a company, we have not replaced a fan until it was at least 12 years old, however some were much older. 

We have seen some cases where a system fan will stop working shortly after being installed, which has to do with a manufacturing problem. In this case, you will be given a new fan at no additional cost to you.
