Test Your Home for Radon

Radon in the Home

Control your indoor air for radon mitigation

Radon is a colorless, odorless, and invisible gas that comes from the soil. It occurs, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention when radioactive metals such as uranium breakdown in the ground. Radon in the home happens when the gas seeps up to cracks in your home's foundation. 

The only way to know if radon is in your home is to test for it. 

It is the second-leading cause of lung cancer after smoking and it is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers. 

There are ways to mitigate the amount of radon in your home. The cost of radon mitigation can be fairly inexpensive. To rid radon in the home you can open up windows to ventilate the air in your home. 

How Aprilaire Can Help With Radon Mitigation

Adding an Aprilaire ventilation system can help with radon mitigation. Aprilaire uses supply ventilation which brings in filtered outside air and pushes the stale indoor air. This can help reduce the issues that can be present by simply opening a window. It provides greater control for the user to provide more frequent change-outs. While the cost of radon mitigation with a supply ventilation system is higher, it does provide more control in helping make sure the air being supplied into your home is fresh and healthy.
