Radon Reduction System, Radon Remediation System

in Ohio

Not all radon reduction systems are built the same. Here at A-Z Radon, we take pride in knowing that the system we install will not only reduce your levels to the lowest level possible, but will last for years to come due to the quality materials we use.

  • Better Materials

    Our radon piping is thicker, quieter and more durable than the industry standard. This translates into a system that is almost silent and won’t sweat on a humid summer day.

  • Energy Star Motors

    Cut your operating costs without sacrificing radon system efficiency. By installing an energy star motor you can save up to $50.00 a year in energy bills while doing your part for the environment.

  • Custom Designed Systems

    We design a radon system that blends in with your home’s architecture. We believe this is important because our system will be a permanent part your home’s overall appearance.

Anatomy of a Residential Radon System

Radon fans move air, radon, mold, mildew and moisture from beneath the concrete in your home through a system of pipes where it is discharged outside the building and away from windows. Not all fan motors are created equal and some can have you spending more money out of pocket just one year later if they stop working due to their limited warranty.  A-Z Radon uses RADONAWAY fan motors which are made in America; are more energy efficient than most fan motors on the market today and carry a five year manufacturer’s warranty.

Suction Point

A suction point is where the radon mitigation system piping meets the basement floor.  In most homes with a full basement, the suction point is easily located.  Homes with multiple levels in contact with the ground may require a suction point in each level. It is also technically possible to use the sump pit as a suction point.  This should be avoided at all costs.  Systems installed in this fashion will consume excessive amounts energy, produce an annoying buzzing noise, and can shorten the life of the fan motor.

Almost 90% of the radon systems we install are routed from the basement through the garage and into the attic space above the garage. This design keeps all of the radon system components inside the building envelope which makes for an unobtrusive installation

System Exhaust

All radon systems end somewhere. It is important to remember the exhaust point must be at least 10 feet from or 2 feet above any window, even if the window is around a corner. This keeps the radon from being exhausted out of the system and back into the house through a window

An airtight lid on a sump crock does not keep radon from entering the basement. It does, however, separate the conditioned air in the basement from the air under the concrete which is being exhausted outside via the radon fan. The radon cover should be easily removed when the sump pump needs servicing. Proper resealing is important when the lid is reinstalled.
