There are good reasons to install a radon system during construction:
The state-wide building code does not require radon-resistant new construction. Local officials, on the other hand, may have adopted this portion of the building code. Calling your local municipality will tell you what is required.
Although the work is straight forward, there are many pitfalls to avoid. A builder doing this work should carefully look over the available material and gain the necessary knowledge. Hiring a Pennsylvania certified mitigator during construction is not required but would certainly be beneficial. Any person performing radon work after the home’s occupancy requires Pennsylvania certification. DEP certifies radon mitigators in Pennsylvania.
Radon testing is recommended shortly after occupancy to determine if the system is to be activated with a fan.
RRNC Training is available. This training is designed for code officials and builders and can be used for continuing education.
