12 Reasons to Choose “A Best Home Inspection & Radon Services”

To Install Your Radon Mitigation System

1. The reason I started in radon mitigation was to provide “a better service”. After 20 years as a general contractor I became a home inspector, and was trained in radon testing. In the course of inspecting hundreds of homes with radon systems I observed that many were improperly installed, and some were quite unsafe and/or not working. In New York State there is no licensing or certification requirement or regulatory oversight for radon mitigation. Since most homeowners do not know what a proper radon system should include, some contractors use substandard materials and installation methods that do not meet the EPA Radon Mitigation Standards out of either ignorance or more often in cutting corners to increase profits.

2. Results Guaranteed in Writing. I install about 100 radon mitigation systems per year and have a 100% success rate reducing radon to below 4.0 pCi/L, with most radon results below 2.0 pCi/L, and many below 1.0 pCi/L. I strive to get the radon level as low as possible.

3. A 10 Year Transferable Warranty on Active Radon Systems, (fans have 5 yr. factory warranty). Heat Recovery Ventilation systems have a 7 year factory warranty on the HRV fans.

4. We only use the correct high-quality materials, abiding by the EPA mitigation standards.

5. A locally owned, full time business, with quick response time, however our system installation is not rushed, we take the time to do it right. The better the design and installation of a system, results in a better working, more efficient, longer lasting and safer system.

6. Rest assured the same person who designs the system is the one who will be installing it. I install all systems myself; occasionally I will have a helper. I have over 30 years “Real Experience” in every aspect of the building trades. Radon mitigation requires knowledge and skills in Plumbing, Electrical, HVAC, Indoor Air Quality, Concrete, Drainage, Roofing and General Construction.

7. We have many available options for exterior systems to blend in with the house (color and trim, fan enclosures, etc.). See to view system options and available upgrades.

8. Fully Insured, Liability/Medical $1,000,000 coverage. Call my broker, Schuyler Hellings for a current copy of my policy and coverage, his phone is 1-888-400-8087.

9. I perform my own radon tests to confirm the system is operating properly. At job completion, paper work will be supplied to the home owner to receive a one-time “Post Mitigation” free radon test kit from New York State. This ensures there is no conflict of interest from the radon contractor’s test being the only proof the system is working properly. You may do you own tests.

10. We conduct EPA mandated spillage and back-draft testing for all gas heating appliances. An active radon system can potentially overcome the exhaust draft of gas appliances, spilling carbon monoxide and exhaust fumes into the home. This important safety check is often overlooked.

11. You will receive an 11 page system manual which explains how the system works, home owner responsibilities, trouble shooting, fan warranty, etc. Also the system components (vent pipes, sump covers, fans, switches, breakers, etc.) are properly labeled for safety as per EPA.

12. 100% Post-Installation Cleanup: (drilling concrete can be very dusty, we use special slow speed drills, and dust collection systems that greatly reduce dust).

Some of Our Radon Mitigation Pictures

You can see the radon fan with a vent pipe that goes up and through the soffit and terminates safely above the roof deck.

Here the radon fan is placed on the back side of the chimney where it cannot be seen from the front of the house. To the side of a house is usually the preferred placement for a radon fan and vent pipe. Back yards often have decks or patios.
