How Active Soil Depressurization (ASD) Works?
Active Soil Depressurization (ASD) is a proven and effective way to reduce radon gas in buildings. It works by creating a negative pressure under the foundation of the building, which pulls radon from the soil and venting it to the outside. This is done by installing a radon fan and PVC pipe system in the lowest part of the home.
The fan creates a vacuum under the foundation, which pulls the radon-filled air up the pipe and away from the home. The fan is then connected to a pipe that runs from the basement to the roof, allowing the radon to be vented outside. When the fan is running, it constantly pulls air from the soil and prevents radon from entering the home. The fan should be tested periodically to make sure that it is running properly and providing the best level of protection.
ASD is an effective way to prevent radon from entering a home or building. It is important to have your home tested by Radon Systems LLC (a radon mitigation professional) for radon levels before and after the installation of an ASD system to ensure that it is working correctly.
