DID YOU KNOW RADON GAS IS THE LEADING ENVIRONMENTAL CAUSE OF LUNG CANCER IN CANADIANS?

Radon Testing Calgary

Radon is a radioactive gas found naturally in the environment. Radon is invisible, odourless and tasteless and emits ionizing radiation. When radon is confined to enclosed or poorly ventilated spaces, it can accumulate to high levels. Radon levels are generally highest in basements and crawl spaces because these areas are nearest to the source and are usually poorly ventilated. In the open air, the amount of radon gas is very small and does not pose a health risk. In the last several years Health Canada has made it a priority to educate the public on the long-term health effects of radon gas in your home.

What is radon?

How to Reduce Radon in Your Home

Radon gas originates in the earth and is found in just about every building to some level. However, it is a concern when it reaches unacceptable levels. According to Health Canada, the acceptable level of radon in the average home is 200 becquerels per cubic metre (200 Bq/m³), while the World Health Organization sets the acceptable level at 100 becquerels per cubic metre (100 Bq/m³).

There are two options to reduce radon levels in your home:

  1. Sub-slab depressurization (SSD)
  2. Home ventilation

However, the first step is to determine the radon levels in your home. This will help you decide which course of action to take.

Sub-slab Depressurization

The most common form of mitigation is sub-slab depressurization. A pipe is inserted through the floor and into the concrete slab beneath the home to draw out radon gas and vent it outside of the home. This method is very effective although requires more work to drill into the foundation of your home. If radon levels are high in your home this method is the best option to reduce radon gas in your home to a safe level.

Home ventilation for radon with a radon mitigation fan

Home Ventilation

You can have a radon mitigation fan installed in your home that pulls radon from the air in your home through ductwork that leads to an outside vent. Proper installation with high quality vents is important to ensure that the radon vented outside does not seep back in.

Arpis’ offers Airthings Wave Plus to test for radon and make recommendations on how to reduce radon to safe levels in your home and maintain healthy indoor air quality.

Adam came out to address our concern with a whistling sound when the furnace was running. His service was exceptional! He was very thorough and took time to explain to me what he was looking at and why, as well as provide great suggestions to help improve air flow and reduce overall noise in our home. He was very personable. Even the cats enjoyed their attention from him! I was appreciative that he kept watch for them trying to escape too!! Service from Arpi’s has been great so far, keep up the great work :)

Habte, the technician, was very thorough in his inspections and adjustments. We went over everything, discussed replacing a defective part on the humidifier (which we did). Overall, good service.
