The good news is remedial measures to control the penetration of radon are both proven and remarkably simple. The most effective method of mitigating the problem is to install a heavy duty plastic-type membrane during the construction of the dwelling. For existing buildings a more practical proposition is the introduction of a Positive Input Ventilation System (PIV).
PIV systems are proven to be effective units in significantly reducing radon gas levels, the system works by gently supplying fresh, filtered air into the property. This process changes the airflow direction within the dwelling to force the air contaminated by radon out of the home.
In addition, PIV systems can also overcome poorly installed membrane systems or compensate for potential tears and cracks which may appear at a later stage. What’s more these systems even save on heating bills and provide whole home ventilation solutions for all year round good indoor air quality.
Our Mr Venty Range of Positive Input Ventilation Systems have proved to be effective in the mitigation of radon gas emissions where radon readings are below two hundred becquarels creating a healthy atmosphere in which to live, free from the harmful effects of radon gas.
They are continuous running ventilation units, which imperceptibly supply filtered air throughout your home. This process changes the airflow direction within the property to gently force the contaminated air out of the home.
