02 Oct How to Maintain Your Radon Mitigation System in Fort Collins
If you’re reading this, then you likely have a radon mitigation system in your home or business (or are looking to get one soon). Whenever you have a new piece of equipment installed, it’s important to know its basic functions so that you can easily spot tell-tale signs of a radon mitigation system that is not working properly. Unlike an air conditioner or water heater, a radon mitigation system that stops working could mean a great health risk for you and your family. Remember to call American Radon or your local radon mitigation company ASAP if you suspect that your mitigation system is not doing its job effectively. Have us maintain your radon mitigation system in fort collins.
Signs of a Malfunctioning Radon Mitigation System
There are several types of radon mitigations systems that we install for our Fort Collins radon mitigation customers:
· Drain tile system
· Sump depressurization system
· Sub-slab depressurization system
· Crawl space mitigation
The most important thing to realize is that regardless of the type of unit you have in your home, there is one essential component that must be working at all times: the fan. As long as your mitigation system’s fan is humming along, then your radon system is doing its job and effectively and removing radon gas from your home. If you hear strange noises coming from the fan (or it isn’t moving at all), then call us immediately so we can repair your system. Theoretically, if our mitigation system brought your home’s radon levels down from 5.1 pCi/L to 1.5 pCi/L, then your home should stay at the new lower level as long as your mitigation system’s fan is in proper working order.
Remember – We’re Only a Phone Call Away
While most of the equipment utilized in your radon mitigation system has a lifetime warranty, fan’s usually come with only a 2-5 year warranty. With proper maintenance and care, your fan can last longer. If in doubt, however, call your local radon mitigation experts right away. We can repair or replace your fan and perform follow up radon testing in fort collins, to ensure that your home has safe levels of radon.
