Pros and Cons of Radon Mitigation

Radon mitigation is one of the methods that is used to reduce radon exposure to people living in homes or in a commercial structure.

The Albany, NY home inspection recommend radon mitigation system as a faster and cheaper process than radon removal. Full removal of radon gas is a very good option for the people who are thinking about selling their property. It also means that the seller is free to sell its property without any hesitation of disclosing the presence of radon. Radon removal is a process that can take months to clean up, while radon mitigation is a short and easy process.

Cons of Radon Mitigation

The cons of radon mitigation involve an increase in the electricity bill because an active design requires electricity to run a fan in the basement or in a radon-contaminated portion. Most of the fans used in this process require 50 watts of energy and homeowner can also feel a slight loss of conditioned air.
