The best value for your home is having an effective radon mitigation system that will reduce the radon level in your home by up to 99 percent.
The radon mitigation system is installed either inside or outside of your home. If it is an inside location, it will look better for your curb appeal and will be required by your neighborhood HOA. But the labor is intensive to find a chase to go through or through the garage, therefore costing more than exterior applications. If it is an outside location, it is more of an eye sore. It will be strategically placed so it is not the first thing the neighbors will see. Outside is typically cheaper and does not require a power source to run the fan. Compared to the interior application the power is more accessible inside the home. Normally, the system is called sub-slab depressurization and it involves installing an approved system with a pipe that is below the slab and a fan that applies negative pressure below to then exhaust the radon gas outside the sideway. Having this installed will drastically reduce the level of radon gas in your house. The only way to know if you need one is to have your home tested.
