It’s January which means it Radon Awareness Month. If you are not familiar with Radon you can get the basics on the EPA website here
Radon and radon mitigation were not very well understood until relatively recently. Given our lack of knowledge about radon, many older homes are not well equipped to handle and mitigate radon efficiently and installing mitigation systems into older homes can be a headache and costly. Luckily with our increasing knowledge about radon and mitigation techniques, installing radon mitigation systems into the blue prints for your new construction home, is becoming easier every day. There are a number of techniques that can be applied to the construction of your new home that are both effective and cost efficient. For more information about building a radon resistant home from the beginning check out the EPA’s step-by-step guide. Or schedule a consult with one of our new construction specialists at New Homes of MN.
