Radon fans are designed to circulate radon-laden air as the fan blades spin. Over time, the fan’s motor bearings begin to fail, and a replacement is necessary. If you notice audible noises coming from the fan, it’s likely time to replace the fan.
What you should know about Radon mitigation?
Radon Fan Replacement are available in a wide variety of sizes and designs. Choose the right one for your needs. A radon fan should be rated for continuous operation, and should be able to withstand high humidity. It’s also important to select the proper model for your home. This will allow you to maximize the value of your new installation.
Older fans can still be replaced. Look for stickers with “Radon Mitigation” on the fan and on the pipe. A replacement service call costs about $250 to $350. A half moon piece of aluminum can be used for caulking, and a vinyl pipe can be run from the upper fitting to the lower brass fitting. You can use pipe insulation to protect the pipes from radon.
If you don’t have the time to call a radon mitigation company, consider replacing the fan yourself. It’s a simple task that can save you $1,000 or more. Proper preparation and follow-through will ensure a successful replacement. A well-maintained system will lower radon levels to safe levels and save you time and money.
