Why do I need a plug-in radon meter with an audible alarm?
- All radon systems fail. To make an immediate repair just plain makes sense.
- A plug-in meter works 24/7/365 without having frequent battery replacement
- If your radon system has failed, you will want to get it fixed under warranty. Even a most generous warranty is of no value if you do not know that your radon system has failed.
- Homemade filters are commonly installed on fresh air radon systems. When they clog, radon reduction stops. Homeowners very often forget to service homemade filters every 60-90 days. It is not unusual to see a system that has not worked for 15 years due to a homemade filter that had never been serviced.
- A radon meter alarm will remind you to service a homemade filter every 60-90 days if that is what you have.
Why do I need an electronic humidity controller?
- An electronic humidity controller can prevent high indoor relative humidity and mold from radon system operation.
- A mechanical ventilation system can add large amounts of moisture into a breathing zone each day. In a hot, humid climate, each cubic foot of outdoor air added into a breathing zone for 24 hours adds an annual average of 1.62 pounds of water. Some radon mitigation systems add 50-100 cubic feet per minute of hot humid air into the breathing zone.
- A mechanical ventilation radon system can easily add more moisture than an air conditioner can handle resulting in high indoor relative humidity.
- Building scientists suggest that to prevent mold, indoor relative humidity should be kept below 60% most of the time..
- An automatic humidity controller can temporarily shut down a radon system if it causes indoor relative humidity to rise above 59.9%, thereeby preventing the radon system from causing mold.
