Radon Mitigation and Removal in Santa Fe, NM

The expert radon technicians at Roadrunner Air Conditioning, Heating & Refrigeration provide free, in–home consultations to assist with radon removal and mitigation. This consultation typically takes about an hour, allowing our radon mitigation specialists enough time to thoroughly conduct a design survey and structural analysis of your home.

Ask us for more details on effective radon mitigation techniques. Our methods, some of which include soil suction, air filtration with a Breathe EZ air cleaner, and energy recovery ventilation have been proven to have a 99% success rate! And when it comes to cost, we understand that radon mitigation is not typically a planned expense, so we offer payment options for your convenience. 

Is Your Existing Radon Mitigation System Keeping You Safe?

Schedule your existing system inspection to ensure that it is keeping you safe. Your radon mitigation system should be tested every 2 years to stay on top of potential system malfunctions, such as:

  • Fan Failure: Most radon system fans are warrantied for about 5 years, and may wear out before then, given that this moving part runs consistently.
  • Foundations Change: If you’ve had a remodel or renovation done, your household changes may affect the performance of your existing mitigation system.
  • Gaps and Cracks: Damage affects the airtight pipe system that extracts radon gas from the soil beneath your home. 

Having your system inspected offers you affordable protection against the dangers of radon exposure, and can even help improve your home’s value should you plan to sell.

Effective Techniques to Remove Hazardous Vapor from Soil

Radon gas occurs naturally, but it is not your only soil vapor intrusion risk. Hazardous vapor can enter the soil via a number of man–made industrial activities and incidents, leading the nearby constructed buildings to be exposed to volatile organic compounds (VOCs), carbon tetrachloride, tetrachloroethene (PCE), trichloroethene (TCE), methylene chloride, and gasoline derivatives such as benzene. 

There are a number of soil vapor intrusion mitigation techniques that we can execute as a National Radon Defense dealer:

  • Sub–Slab Depressurization (SSD): The EPA defines this technology as "a system designed to achieve lower sub–slab air pressure relative to indoor air pressure by use of a fan–powered vent drawing air from beneath the slab."
  • Sump Pit Depressurization System (SPD): This is a viable option for homeowners who have a high water table in the ground.
  • Sub–membrane depressurization systems: These systems create a negative pressure under the property so vapors don’t get sucked up into the property with lower pressure than the subsurface.
  • Pressure field extension training (PFE): Diagnostic testing typically used in radon and soil vapor extraction. This test is also conducted after the installation of a radon mitigation system to ensure its effectiveness. 

Managing Radon in Condo and Apartment Communities

Thanks to the work of agencies such as the Dept. of Housing & Urban Development, the Dept. of Energy, the EPA, and the Dept. of Health and Human Services, federal requirements are in place to minimize the risks of radon exposure for multi–family housing such as condominium and apartment communities.

To be in compliance with these federal regulations, and to make condos, apartments, and multifamily housing safer, contact Roadrunner Air Conditioning, Heating & Refrigeration to inquire about our multi–family mitigation systems. Our comprehensive radon mitigation services for multifamily housing include:

  • Radon Inspection & Testing
  • Free Estimates for Radon Mitigation
  • System Design and Consulting
  • Radon Mitigation for Existing Multifamily Units and New Construction
  • Passive Mitigation System Activation

Introducing the Breathe EZ Air Cleaner for Radon Filtration

Radon is a noble gas, and cannot be filtered out of your indoor air. However, Breath EZ air filtration can reduce the health risks associated with radon. As radon decays, it produces decay products—solid elements such as dust particles—that stick to surfaces. When you breathe in these dust particles, you increase your risk of lung cancer.

A Breath EZ air cleaner filtration system, however, reduces up to 98% of radioactive elements in the air according to clinical trials. This system is easily integrated into your existing HVAC system and works whenever you’re running that system.

Our team is specifically trained to install this system into your HVAC system, and we have numerous options no matter what type or size of central system you have for your home. We’ll also show you how to change the filter media, which should be done every 3 months. 

Have an Energy Recovery Ventilator Installed

If a traditional active soil depressurization wasn’t a viable and/or cost effective method to remove the radon risk from a home, National Radon Defense has alternatively installed an energy recovery ventilator (ERV) as a solution.

Tightly sealed homes prevent fresh air from getting in and circulating through the interior. This is great for HVAC efficiency, but exacerbates the problem of trapped radon and other harmful indoor air particles. An ERV, however, removes stale and polluted air from your household and replaces it with fresh outside air.
