Is You’re System Working

From time to time I will get calls from customers asking if there is anything they should do regarding their Radon system. The good news about Radon systems is that if they are running and quiet, there is not much to really do for maintenance. But you still need to make sure the system is working properly.

What should be done on a semi-annual basis though is to conduct a home Radon test, just to make sure Radon levels have not crept back up somehow. Most of the time levels will still be low, but there have been rare occasions when we had to go back and address an issue that a customer was not aware of to bring levels back down. Their system was working but, a crack developed in the basement slab or a gap opened up at the cold joint. One home owner had taken his sump pump pit lid off and forgot to put it back on the pit and re-seal it.

So, remember to do a Radon test every couple of years to make sure your Radon system is doing it’s job. Chances are the test will come back low. If it doesn’t then give us a call, whether it is our system or not we can take care of it.

Attention Home Buyers

This blog is directed to home buyers. I would like to comment on what is going on in the real world. We go to sellers homes every day for estimates on Radon systems. We get calls from sellers every day about Radon systems. The first statement is we tested high for Radon, now we have to put in a system, (they are not happy).  Do you want to know what the first question is? It is, “what is your least expensive system, or how cheap can you put a system in”? Of course we go through how our reputation is that we do it right, and stand behind our work, and that the buyers will be happy with our system. More times than I care to say the response is, “I don’t care about quality, how it looks, or where it is as long as we get one passing test”.  I understand that the economy is still down, and that many sellers are losing money when they sell their home. Now they are stuck with putting in a Radon system. They will get no benefit out of it, they are moving out. (to bad they were not informed about Radon when they purchased) As nice as we can we go over the quality issue and explain that if it were them buying the home they would want the best system possible to protect their family. Many times we lose the sale on price. Sometimes it’s a $100 difference or $25 or $50.  My competitors prices bounce all over the place, where as ours are posted on our web site. If you are a buyer, and you want the best system for your family, you can request that we install your system. You may have to pay the difference in price. You should have a say in who installs your system, you are the one buying the home. Don’t get stuck with what the seller was willing to pay for, and with a Radon company who is willing to do it wrong to get the job.

Radon System Display

Just to let everyone know we have a working Radon System Display of an inside and outside Radon system. We built this when we opened our office/shop in 2005. You can also see video clips of system installs under our media gallery.

I was told that this might be the first working Radon system display every built. We have shared what we did with other mitigators in other parts of the country so they could do something similar.

We are always working to be the leading Radon company.
