We can all understand the need to install a radon mitigation system if elevated radon levels have been detected. But what about being proactive in the first place? Installing passive radon systems in new commercial construction like apartments and low-income housing can save time and money, and protect tenants’ health. And the best part is that passive radon systems are easy to install in the construction phase.
Installing a simple, cost-effective passive radon system is truly a public service because it will reduce building occupants’ exposure to radon and reduce their risk of lung cancer. A passive radon system will also contribute to better overall indoor air quality and provide a more comfortable environment. It will also reduce the risk that a costly radon mitigation system need to be installed in the future. And, even if high radon levels are detected in the structure later on, having the passive system in place will make it easier and less costly to install a full radon mitigation system.
