Radon System Installation Greendale WI
There are two basic ways to run a radon system with accordance to the EPA regulations and state building codes. With every home, an exterior style radon system is always an option. With this style the piping starts in the basement coming out of the sump crock, or directly out of the drain tile from the floor, or in cases where the home doesn’t have a sump crock the pipe runs from the floor and a suction pit underneath the slab. The pipe then runs up the basement wall to the exterior of the home where the specialized radon fan is set and then the piping has to continue up the exterior to vent above the roofline in accordance with EPA standards.
We understand the worries about aesthetics when it comes to outside systems, but we can assure you that we will work to find the best possible placement to fit your home. The other style of radon system we can install in Greendale is a garage system. Garage installations start the same way as exterior installs, but instead of the piping being visible from the exterior of the home the piping is run through the garage instead. If possible on your home, this is the style we most recommended because of its limited visibility, and it’s inherited long lifespan of the fan from the protection of being in sheltered area. Many companies charge extra to do garage systems because they are more labor intensive, but at Lifetime Radon garage systems cost about the same as exterior systems, and sometimes can be even less if you have existing outlets to plug the fan into in the garage.

Radon Companies Near Greendale
Radon mitigation in the state of Wisconsin is not regulated heavily compared to our surrounding states like Minnesota and Illinois. This has resulted in radon companies popping up that are uncertified and inexperienced, trying to get as much money as possible before they get shut down or lose interest. Always check if the company you are receiving quotes from has certifications for radon mitigation and radon testing before moving forward. The biggest certifications are AARST and the NRPP. Companies certified by those organizations have to follow a strict protocol when installing radon mitigation systems to ensure that every homeowners is receiving a safe and effective system that will also pass every inspection. When you risk going with an uncertified contractor, you risk your entire home, not just the effectiveness of the radon system. Not following the correct protocols can result in fires, damage to your foundation, and flooding. Additionally, never ever let a radon mitigation company do their own electrical work if its needed on your home, unless they are also licensed master electricians, or work with master electricians. This is something companies try to do to undercut other companies on price, but in this case, going cheap can be expensive. If the inspector comes around and sees that a permit wasn’t pulled for electrical work on your radon system you will be hit with fines much greater than the money you will save going with an uncertified contractor.
