What is Radon?
Radon is a colourless and odourless gas that is common throughout North America. It results from the radioactive decay of Uranium. Radon comes up through the soil and can concentrate in homes and buildings. While increasing ventilation can help reduce harmful radon concentrations, the associated energy penalty is often too much, especially in winter months. This is why we generally install specially designed radon reduction systems in houses with high radon levels.
