If all else fails, refer to this sticky note when hiring a professional radon mitigation provider.

Most homeowners don’t find high levels of radon in their home and get excited. In fact, most probably panic. This is a time when you want to find someone to solve the problem, while not emptying your bank account. But, before you start your search, remember that you need to work with a reputable, licensed radon mitigation professional.

We put together a few no-brainers that you should expect from your contractor:

  • Your provider should be willing to provide licenses, references from past customers, and proof to support his system and claims.
  • A comprehensive presentation by a skilled professional which includes information about what is causing your particular problem allowing you to make an informed decision about resolving the issue.
  • A verified radon mitigation system that performs as the contractor says and provides a permanent solution to your radon issue by reducing radon levels to meet EPA protocol or lower.
  • A reasonable and consistent price, comparable to other professional radon mitigation companies – remember, there is only ONE local and licensed radon mitigation professional – Radon Systems of Indiana!
  • The opportunity to examine the work after it’s complete and give your approval before you pay.
  • A warranty to support the system that’s been evaluated to meet all Federal Trade Commission recommendations. And, even better, check to see if your systems is protected by an industry-leading, five-year, transferable warranty on Radonaway™ System Fans (made in the U.S.A.) and a lifetime warranty on all other components. (Hint, hint…Radon Systems IS!)
  • A provider that is willing to answer any questions after the system has been installed.
  • And, most important-the system should keep your home safe for the life of your family and friends.

If you want a contractor that provides all of this and more, call Radon Systems of Indiana at 812.842.0728 to get started today!

 

Radon and Real Estate

We know that buying or selling a home is a stressful time where you need to be mindful of so many factors. But, perhaps one of the most important – that is left off most people’s checklist – is radon. Homeowners looking for a quick sale and buyers wanting a safe house should both consider the importance of a radon inspection. And, if the test finds that the levels are high, don’t panic. It doesn’t have to be a deal breaker for either party. The buyer and the seller can work together to ensure the home is safe for all involved.

There are even some federally insured mortgage programs, such as the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) and Housing and Urban Development (HUD), that strongly urge that radon tests and radon mitigation are done before a house with their mortgage guarantee is bought or sold. In addition, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the U.S. Surgeon General and the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) all strongly recommend checking for radon and having radon mitigation done before a sale. Most states do not require – but strongly suggest – that radon testing and mitigation be a part of any real estate transaction. With so much interest in radon, and with so much at risk in terms of your family’s health and financial investment, radon testing and mitigation should not only be on your list, it should be at the top of your list.

If you are planning to sell your home, call Radon Systems of Indiana to provide speedy, precise radon testing. More likely than not, the levels will be within the EPA guidelines. But, if high levels are found, fear not, we can install a radon mitigation system that will resolve the issue and give your house a passing score from any home inspector. Showing a prospective home buyer that you have taken the time to test for radon and have taken the necessary steps for mitigation is a positive selling point.

If you are a buyer and find the house of your dreams, we can test for radon before you close the deal. If we find elevated levels of radon, you don’t have to keep looking. Call us. We can install a mitigation system in the house and keep your dreams intact.

The most important thing to remember, is to make radon testing a part of any real estate transaction.

You Get What You Pay For

We’ve all heard the saying, “you get what you pay for,” at some time or another in our lives.  Unfortunately, it usually rings true when dealing with service providers and we’ve found it already in the radon mitigation services field. 

While Radon Systems of Indiana (RSI) is the only local, licensed in the State of Indiana radon mitigation services provider south of Indianapolis, we certainly aren’t the only providers available.  And, we are sure that you can find a competitor that will undercut our price and provide the same service – or at least he says he will provide the same service.  But, we want to tell you about why that isn’t always a good idea.  Below are just a few of the discerning differences in the way we do business. 


Company

Pipe Used

Electrician

Testing

Radon Systems of Indiana

4” pipe, schedule 40.  More volume, less noise, less wear on the fan.  The schedule 40 has more durability.

Licensed electrician installs all fans.

Third-party tester for post mitigation testing to prove systems works properly by someone that doesn’t work for RSI.

Competitors

3” pipe, cheaper, less durable.

They wire fans themselves – not licensed.

They give you a kit when they leave and tell you to test for yourself.


And, while these are definite differences, they might not be that concerning to you.  But, in addition to the above, other service providers don’t use the EPA’s protocol when providing radon mitigation services either.  That begs the question, why provide radon mitigation services at all if they aren’t going to follow the guidelines?  And, to the homeowner, if you are going to spend the money to have your home tested and fixed, why not spend a few more dollars and have it done right?  If you are in the market for radon mitigation services or know someone who is, please remember…you get what you pay for. 

Whether you have a just want to test your home, have a current problem, or want to take charge of your indoor air quality before an issue arises, RSI can help.  RSI works with owners of single-family homes, commercial buildings, multi-family residences, and everything in between.  Call 812.842.0728 or visit www.RadonSystemsIndiana.com.com today and schedule a free estimate.
