Radon is a health hazard with a simple solution

Family home with a radon fan

Radon is everywhere! You can’t see radon and you can’t smell it or taste it. But it may be a problem in your home. According to the EPA radon is estimated to cause 21,000 lung cancer deaths per year!

Radon comes from the natural (radioactive) breakdown of uranium in soil, rock and water and gets into the air you breathe. Radon is all over the US in every type of building, however you and your family are most likely to get your greatest exposure at home, where you spend most of your time. 

Testing is the only way to know if you and your family are at risk. Testing is easy and inexpensive; most hardware stores carry Radon Test Kits. The EPA recommends that you mitigate your home if the radon level is above 4 Picocuries per liter (4pCi/L).

The good news is that reducing the levels is not hard but requires the technical knowledge of a qualified mitigator. Check with your state Radon office for names of qualified or state certifiedradon contractors in your area.

For over 30 years Fantech a leader in the ventilation industry have been providing Radon mitigation fans for family homes. You can trust Fantech to provide a ventilation solution for your Radon problem.

Did you know

...radon mitigation standards require that the fan to be placed outside of the living space of the home?

In other words, anywhere that is outside the conditioned air space of the heating and air conditioning system. An exterior wall is a commonly acceptable location for the fan placement.

Sometimes it might seem impossible to find an aesthetically pleasing location on an exterior wall, so the attic can be an acceptable location for fan placement.
