A-1 Radon the Wisconsin Radon Mitigation Experts

Affordable Pricing, Lifetime Radon Mitigation System Guarantee, Fast Quality Installation, Free Radon Mitigation Bid

If your home has high radon levels, don’t worry. Our team has installed thousands of radon mitigation systems all over Wisconsin since 1988. A radon mitigation system can be installed quickly and affordably in less than a day. Our radon mitigation systems significantly reduce the radon levels in your home – guaranteed. Our systems will lower the radon levels in your house to below 3.9 and in many cases, our radon removal systems will bring a house down to under 1.0 pCi/L at no extra charge.

Installed by our experienced and certified technicians, a radon removal system creates ventilation in the soil under the foundation. The suction created by a specialty radon fan carries the radon and other soil gasses through a series of pipes and exhausts them into the air outside the house.

A-1 Radon Advantages:

  • Very competitive priced systems using the highest quality certified parts and radon fans
  • Lifetime warranty on system parts and labor, (fan carries the 5-year manufacturer’s warranty)
  • Lowers the radon levels in your home to 3.9 pCi/L or less – guaranteed. Most homes will be below 1.9 pCi/l
  • Reduces the humidity under your foundation, which in turn can reduce both mold and moisture from the basement
  • Reduces other dangerous ground gases (VOC’s) such as methane and formaldehyde in your home

A radon mitigation system installation can generally be scheduled within a week and takes less than a few hours to finish. A-1 Radon goes the extra mile for our customers – including installing systems in the most discreet location possible, whether exterior or interior, and doing all clean-up once the job is done.

Professional mitigation of high radon levels is extremely effective and a proven method of reducing your radon exposure by up to 90%. Even homes with abnormally elevated readings (above 15 pCi/l) can be safely mitigated to acceptable levels (below 4pCi/l). The design of your home greatly affects how we fix the problem, but we will provide an outline for the basics of radon mitigation. Radon enters the living space after concentrating in the drain tile that runs below the foundation of the home. As this is the source of the overwhelming majority of your in home radon exposure (small amounts can be present in ground water), the most efficient form of mitigation involves exhausting this air outside the home and away from any potential inhalation. A PVC pipe installed into the foundation of the home and connected to the drain tile will provide the radon gas a way to bypass the living space. A fan installed in-line with the pipe will continually exhaust this air from the drain tile to the outside of the home (this is air from below the foundation, not air that you pay to heat or cool in the winter or summer).

EPA And World Health Organization Recommendations:

Radon is measured in picoCuries per liter, or “pCi/L”. While the EPA recommends that you take action if the radon level in your home is 4.0 pCi/L or higher, the World Health Organization (WHO) actually recommends that your home not have levels above 2.7 pCi/L. So you’ve had your house tested and the level is above the WHO recommendation. What now?

I Have Tested my Home for Radon and the levels are High…

EPA recommends that you take actions to reduce your home’s indoor radon levels if your radon result is 4 pCi/l or higher. If elevated levels are found during the real estate transaction, the buyer and seller should discuss the timing and costs of radon reduction. The cost of making repairs to reduce radon levels depends on how your home was built and other factors. Most homes can be fixed for between $800-$1,200.
