Radon Mitigation 

Radon mitigation systems can be installed in several different ways depending on the layout of your home, including in the attic. When determining which option will be best for you, a licensed Radon Mitigation Specialist will offer their professional option on which route will be most efficient for your home. With that being said, there are often a couple of options for each home.

Typically the two most common installations are either an interior or exterior. When deciding between the two, both options are useful to reduce radon levels; it comes down to homeowner preference.

Here are five reasons why homeowners prefer to have a radon mitigation system installed in the attic. 

  • The Radon System is Hidden: Instead of having the fan and venting pipes on the outside Benefits of Installing a Radon Mitigation Systemof the home, the only visible component on the outside is the vent stack that rises through the roof. 
  • Electrical components are out of reach: When a radon system is installed in the attic space, the fan and all electrical components are also located in the attic. This makes it more inaccessible to children or animals to get at. 
  • Less Noise: Even though an exterior system will have minimal sound, installing the fan in the attic will prevent all noticeable noise from the system. 
  • Visually Pleasing: If you try to sell your home after an installation, often having the system installed internally is more aesthetically pleasing to potential buyers because it is not a noticeable component on the outside of the house. 
  • System Performance Gauge: Many attic installations are routed through the garage, which means the system performance indicator is placed on the PVC piping right in the garage. This gives the homeowner a perfect view every day to make certain that the system is on and working properly. 

As indicated above, whether you decide to go with an interior or exterior mitigation system, both are effective ways to remove the radon from your home, which is the goal of the radon mitigation system. 

If you are unsure if there are high concentration levels of radon gas in your home, the first step is to have your home tested for radon. Once you know the levels, a certified specialist can walk you through the best installation options for your particular home.
