Radon Testing New Home Construction Westerville, OH
Do you need radon testing or mitigation for your new home construction? Radon Systems provides radon protection services for new homes in Westerville, OH. These include installing a passive radon system in your new construction. Our radon testing and mitigation services for your new home construction are available to Columbus, OH and the surrounding areas, including Raymond, Mt Vernon, Fredericktown, Centerburg, Delaware, Powell, Grove City, London, and Marysville, OH.
Regulatory bodies like the IRC now require that new homes must have radon protection. This is especially true for homes on sites exposed to radon pollution. This requirement was put in place after researchers found radon to be the second leading cause of lung cancer. Radon is a colorless and odorless gas that naturally occurs in areas where commercial buildings were previously located. Radon mitigation systems should be put in place in new constructions to ensure that the radon gas levels are non-toxic.
Our company offers radon mitigation services for new constructions. In addition to radon testing, we will also install a passive radon system in your new home construction.
Passive Radon System New Construction
One of the important services you may need for your new home in Westerville, OH is the installation of passive radon systems. Compared to active radon systems, a passive system is affordable but still effective. It helps by proactively keeping radon levels from becoming toxic. The homeowner has to first test the site to ensure that the levels of radon are not toxic. That means that one would need to install a passive radon system in the new construction. The system will offer radon protection to the new home by making the building radon-resistant.
If you need radon testing services for your new home construction, you’re in luck. We’ve done this for decades, and have built a solid reputation doing so. In some cases, the radon levels increase even with the installation of the passive system. When that happens, we simply add a fan and a performance indicator to turn the radon mitigation system in your new construction from passive to active. This will effectively lower the amount of radon in your construction in Westerville, OH.
Radon Protection in New Homes
You should only hire radon mitigation experts for radon protection in your new home. Sometimes a new home construction in Westerville, OH will have its radon testing and installation done by building contractors and plumbers. The installation of active and passive radon systems in new construction may look simple, but only a licensed radon professional can properly install a system to function optimally.
For instance, a licensed radon protection expert will advise the electricians on how to wire to allow for proper installation of the fans. Our radon professionals work with other contractors during the construction. This is to make sure that the new home construction supports the installation of a radon mitigation system.
Radon testing in any new home construction is usually done more than once after the installation of a mitigation system. Homeowners in Westerville, OH can buy do-it-yourself kits that allow them to monitor the radon levels in their property. However, the kit is a secondary radon protection measure. That is because a passive radon system installed in new home construction can help the homeowner keep track of radon levels. Ultimately, a DIY kit only allows one to confirm the readings from the passive system.
Radon Mitigation in New Construction
After radon testing in your new home construction, the next thing you need is mitigation services. Apart from the passive and active mitigation systems, we also have other options for radon protection in new homes. Our contractors will design a suitable system based on the layout of your property and the levels of radon gas.
