What Should I Do If the Radon Level is High?
a. High Radon Levels Can Be Reduced
EPA recommends that you take action to reduce your home’s indoor radon levels if your radon test result is 4 pCi/L or higher. Additionally, it is better to correct a radon problem before placing your home on the market because then you have more time to address a radon problem.
The cost of making repairs to reduce radon levels depends on how your home was built and other factors. Most homes can be fixed for about the same cost as other common home repairs, like painting or having a new hot water heater installed. The average cost for a licensed radon mitigation professional to lower radon levels in a home can range from $800 to about $1200.
b. How To Lower The Radon Level In Your Home
There are several proven methods to reduce radon in your home, but the one primarily used is a vent pipe system and fan, which pulls radon from beneath the house and vents it to the outside. This system, known as a soil suction radon reduction system, does not require major changes to your home. Sealing foundation cracks and other openings makes this kind of system more
effective and cost-efficient. Similar systems can also be installed in houses with crawl spaces. Radon contractors can use other methods that may also work in your home. The right system depends on the design of your home and other factors.
