A typical radon system takes one full day to install. The process for setting up and installing such a system is outlined
1) After discovering high radon levels in their home, the customer contacts Rand's Perk and provides details related
to the house specifications (e.g. How many stories tall is the house? Is the basement finished?). For a typical home Rand's
Perk does not need to inspect the house prior to providing a quote, although under certain conditions a no-cost inspection may be
required. Typically the price quote is provided immediatly over the phone, although an in-writing quote will be provided, upon
2) A special sealant is used to close all of the cracks and gaps that are present in the basement floor. Closing
these gaps ensures the system will properly remove the gas from below the basement floor before it enters the living space.
A small hole is drilled in both the concrete
flooring and in the side of the house in a discrete
location. These holes are large
accomodate a 4" pipe, which expunges the radon
gas from the building.
4) The piping is installed with an in-line fan
that is specifically designed to draw the air from below the basement floor, to out of the house and away from the living space.
This fan runs continuously, but is energy-efficient in that it draws about the same amount of energy as a 100W light bulb.
The house will be re-tested using a certified radon mitigation tester at no cost to you. The radon levels in your house are guaranteed
to be reduced to less than 4.0 pCi/L or we will fix it at no additional charge.
