Radon is an invisible, odorless, naturally occurring gas that can cause major health issues, such as lung cancer, if it accumulates in your home. Many homeowners install detectors to identify radon levels in their houses. Here are three of the most common forms of radon mitigation systems to consider if you need help removing radon from your home.

Sump-Hole Suction

The sump-hole suction system, also known as a passive sub-slab depressurization system, is particularly beneficial for homes with basements that have sump pump cavities. These spaces often become entry points for the radon.

Radon mitigation system installers will create a suction point in the sump hole and set up a pipe and pump to control the flow of the gas. This negative pressure zone pulls radon gas from the soil and vents it above the roofline, where it disperses outdoors. You could add an in-line fan to amplify the process for more significant radon reduction.

Active Soil Depressurization

Active soil depressurization (ASD) is another common form of radon mitigation systems. Many homeowners prefer this versatile system because they can tailor it to fit the unique construction of their homes.

Installers will route a PVC pipe from the basement or a sub-slab to the exterior, with an in-line fan creating suction to draw the radon gas from below the home. You can mount the fan in different configurations, including inside the attic or exterior wall, depending on your house’s layout and your preferences.

Crawl Space Ventilation

Crawl space ventilation can be a cost-effective and practical method for reducing radon levels in your crawl space. This system maintains consistent air circulation and provides an exit route for radon gas that may accumulate in the space beneath your home.

Installing vents is an easy, cost-effective, and low-maintenance way to create airflow within the crawl space. If your radon detector indicated high levels, you should guide the gas out of the vents with the aid of fans or similar devices.
