There are three distinct types of radon mitigation that can be performed on your Colorado Springs property; Sub Slab Depressurization, French Drain/Drain Tile Mitigation System, Sump Pit/Pump Draw Point System.
There are many factors that determine which system is the best for your home.
This is the most common type of system installed. A Sub Slab Depressurization System creates suction in a pit that is dug out below the concrete slab in the basement of a home. The radon gases are collected in that pit and exhausted out of the home using a low wattage fan and pvc piping that is placed on the exterior of the property or through the garage or attic. This is the preferred method in homes that do not have a French Drain or Sump System, like several in Colorado Springs.
Drain Tile Systems are commonly referred to as Perimeter or French Drains. This is a drainage system that is installed below the foundation of a home to help with water drainage in properties that are susceptible to water problems. With the majority of new homes being outfitted with these drains by the builders, we can access these systems for radon mitigation in Colorado Springs by digging down next to the foundation or even in a basement window well. The drain itself acts as a “ready-made highway” for radon mitigationBy tapping into a water drainage system we can increase the overall effectiveness of the radon mitigation in Colorado Springs. This is a preferred method anytime it is an option and results in the lowest possible post mitigation radon levels.
These radon mitigation systems are similar to a drain tile system since the sump pit is connected to a drain system that is installed below the foundation which directs water to a central basin in the basement. It does not matter if there is a sump pump installed in the pit, we can still utilize the pit as the draw point. We can tap in through the basin lid or the foundation to gain access to the drain. In either case, our radon system installation in Colorado Springs will not interfere with the drainage system in any way.
Colorado Springs is known to have a high content of uranium in the soil. This is a common, naturally occurring condition across the state and the reason there is a need for radon mitigation in Colorado Springs. As uranium breaks down it releases radon gas into the soil. Due to the home creating negative pressure on the soil beneath it, radon and other unhealthy gases enter through the cracks and holes in the foundation.
As these gases enter your home, office, or building they will degrade the air quality of the entire home. The goal of radon mitigation in Colorado Springs is to create a new path for these dangerous gases to bypass the living space of a home. In doing so, the radon gas will not enter into areas that you inhabit and are safely released above your house. With the proper techniques, any home can be made much safer and healthier with no risk of exposure to elevated radon levels.
So what exactly does radon remediation cost? Well, it all depends on your area, your home, and which service provider you choose. There are several factors that you and your service provider will have to discuss, including:
The numbers can quickly add up, especially if your service provider charges you extra for every additional service or tries to upsell you unnecessary equipment and services . At American Radon LLC, we provide FREE pre-mitigation radon tests – INCLUDING the lab fees which saves you between $40-$150 right from the get go. We also provide an industry comparable warranty on all parts except the fan which comes with its own 5 year manufacturers warranty and a life expectancy of 10-15 years. And we don’t hit you with any hidden fees, taxes or permit costs once the job is complete. All your questions are answered, placement options thoroughly discussed, and final costs are fully disclosed BEFORE we start the installation.
Because we want to make sure that your radon remediation costs stay low while also ensuring that your home maintains a safe level of radon gas, we provide free follow up radon test kits once our radon mitigation system is in place. Need a finished exit? Most of the other radon mitigation companies will charge extra for this ($100 or so), but not us. Does you HOA require all exterior piping be a specific color? Other companies will charge you $100 or more just to paint – we’ll do it for free. Want us to go through the garage and exit through the roof? No problem, that doesn’t cost you any extra cash. Our standard sub-slab radon mitigation equipment installation costs $950 out the door. Simple as that.
