Radon Mitigation Hartford WI
Living in Hartford and most of its surrounding cities in Washington country comes with an elevated risk of having high radon levels indoors. A study done by the Wisconsin DHS from 1995-2016 showed that 62.5% of homes evaluated in Hartford had radon levels at or above 4.0pCi/L which is the EPA action level for radon. However, there’s no reason to be deterred from buying a new home because it has an elevated radon level. Radon gas is a problem that can be solved, and the cost of a radon mitigation system is far less than the cost of lung cancer in the future. Lifetime Radon has installed thousands of radon mitigation systems in Hartford and its surrounding cities in 21 years of business, and we are eager to help you as well. Going with an experienced and competitively priced radon mitigation company is crucial no matter the reason you are looking to have a system installed. Going with the cheapest option will end up being costly in the long run, even if you are simply having a radon system installed to sell the house. If you want to close on your house on time and radon mitigation is the only thing in the way, don’t mess around, go with a company that can schedule you fast, install a quality system, and produce good results in a timely manner. If you are having radon mitigation work done for you and your families health, it’s even more important to choose the right company. Choose a company that truly cares about producing optimal results while also doing everything they can to maintain the aesthetics of your home. We understand that this process is new to a lot of people and can be frustrating when it comes up for the first time in a home sale, but we are designed to make the entire installation and testing process fast and painless.

Radon Testing Hartford WI
We offer a bevy of radon testing options in Hartford contingent on what type of testing report you are looking for, and how long you want the test to run. Short term testing is the most popular option and can be achieved in 2-7 days with a full report. The charcoal testing kits that we offer are only $25 and can be run 3-7 days before being sent to a 3rd party lab for analysis. The digital testing monitor can get you results in as little as 48hrs with a very detailed hour by hour report for only $110. So, if you are looking to test for the first time to see where your homes levels are at these are two good options for you. The digital monitor is most popular with real estate transactions because of it’s quick turnaround and detailed report, but also can be a good first step for initial testing and retesting. If you have done a radon test in the past that came back below 4.0 pCi/L but still was above 2.0 pCi/L, we would recommend doing a long term test to see a year round average. Long term canisters can be set for as long as a year. Obviously we don’t recommend this test for real estate transactions, but if you plan on being in the home for more than a few years, this is a good testing option. For homeowners that want to see their levels constantly with the ability to generate weekly, monthly and yearly averages on their smartphones, we offer the AirThings Wave. The Wave is $220 and is a very cool device to have. The reports cannot be used for real estate transactions, but it does an excellent job of keeping you aware of the radon gas levels in your home at all times.

Radon in Water Hartford WI
We get a lot of questions about the potential of high radon in well water. Testing for radon in water is possible and is an option that we do offer at Lifetime Radon, however it is quite rare to have radon levels in your water high enough to affect your health in the state of Wisconsin. Radon is harmful when inhaled over a long period of time, and for radon from water to get into the air at levels above 4.0 pCi/L, the water would have to measure at 40,000 pCi/L. For every 10,000 picocuries of radon in water, the amount that will escape into the air is 1.0 pCi/L. Radon gets into water from wells that are dug into bedrock containing radon gas, so if you have city water there is minimal risk. It’s best to test for radon gas in the air first before looking into testing for radon in your water. Currently there are no enforced EPA standards for radon in drinking water, but if you do a test on your water that comes above 10,000pCi/L you should look into getting an aeration system to help mitigate the radon from your well. If you have questions about radon in water or would like to set up a time to have one of our technicians test your well, give us a call!
Radon Mitigation Cost Hartford WI
When it comes to cost for radon mitigation systems in residential homes, it isn’t one price fits all. When you are calling around for estimates for radon mitigation be very way of companies that don’t ask questions before simply giving out a flat rate. This will lead to unexpected charges on the day of installation and possible installation issues. Every home is unique, and there are a few factors that change the price. Typically systems cost anywhere from $800-$1500 if there isn’t a dirt or gravel crawlspace present. This is what you will find when calling around, but if you get a quote lower than that start asking questions, because there are companies that will use a low price to get homeowners to book, but then drop on hundreds of extra dollars once they are out at your home. Be prepared to answer some fairly simple questions about your home such as, “do you have a sump pump?”, “what year was the home built?” “what kind of roofing do you have?”, etc. If you aren’t being asked questions, or scheduling an in person estimate, then you may be taken for a ride.
