Radon Gas Mitigation Photo Album: Radon Mitigation System on a 1700s home, Mason, NH
A homeowner in Mason, New Hampshire purchased a 300-year-old home in 2021. The homeowner purchased the home in July 2021 and since they purchased the home they have created a list of things that have to be addressed. First on the list was installing a radon mitigation system because high radon levels can cause health issues. The homeowner decided to call EFS for a free radon inspection, and our design specialist recommended installing a radon mitigation system into the home.
Our production team began by creating an extraction point by using a core drill on the slab. The team then attached PVC pipe to the extraction points and guided a series of PVC pipes to the exterior of the home where they can install the radon fan to the exterior of the home. After the fan was installed the team vented the radon system above the roofline of the home so radon cannot re-enter the home.
