Reducing  Radon for  more than 30 Years

We've Been Reducing Radon Gas for more than 30 Years

Experience makes the Difference

Hello, I'm Gregg Zetzman. For more than 30 years, I have answered the call to reduce radon in homes and businesses. In fact, I have reduced deadly gases for more than 2000 clients! I have been invited many times to speak about radon as a guest speaker at business gatherings, radio programming as well as print news. Nothing beats experience!

Evaluating Radon System Design for the uniqueness of each building

When choosing the radon removal method in buildings, Radon Authority will determine which methods can be incorporated into the system design of the structure, including both exterior and interior factors. Some buildings will only allow certain method designs, others may allow for a variety of options. The expertise of the FL certified radon specialist matters when designing radon mitigation systems in Florida.   

Just Radon

Radon Testing and Mitigation is our expertise. We specialize in reducing elevated radon safely without causing mold or other environmental safety concerns. Since we do not intend to cause mold issues with our systems, we do not need to offer mold remediation to clean it up. When we design a radon mitigation system, we want to fix a radon problem, not cause another environmental condition

Using Quality Materials, Technique & Technology

Whether we are reducing radon in homes, condominiums, institutions, schools or commercial, we take pride in the materials we use.  Only quality materials and technology will go into our radon reducing systems.  Many techniques and materials used by unlicensed and unfortunately even some certified mitigation contractors fall short. In fact, some materials and techniques can cause other toxic issues

BEWARE: Example of our competitors' fresh air system pictured below.

When installed the unit gives a more sloppy appearance. Gaps can be seen with frayed drywall surrounding it

Due to the design of the product, the rough cut drywall edge will always be exposed.

BEWARE of CERTIFIED  Contractors installing these type of radon fresh air systems

hqdefault

Beware of contractors installing concealed radon systems through the air handler ductwork.  When too much humidity comes in through these type of concealed systems, the air handler may not be able to properly get rid of the access humidity. MOLD GROWS IN HUMIDITY!

NOTE: These systems pictured ABOVE were installed using fans designed for sub-slab mitigation-NOT FRESH AIR systems.

These type of systems are often installed cheaply with no regard to future mold liability. Thay are often installed without permit in those municipalities requiring it. RADON AUTHORITY DOES NOT INSTALL THIS TYPE OF SYSTEMS

Get a glimpse at what radon looks like. Now imagine yourself living in a home with high radon levels and breathing radon into your lungs and into your body every day.

Sub-slab method removes radon before it enters the home.

Radon Remediation Removal Methods

Active Sub-slab Radon Mitigation (Preferred Method)

The most common approach used is known as "Active Sub-Slab Depressurization" or (ASSD). This method involves drawing the radon gas (and other pollutants) from soils that are directly adjacent to the structure. In order for this method to be effective, a sealed barrier between the home and the soil must be available to divert the radon gas away from the home.

The Florida Radon Research Program Recommends Sub-Slab Depressurization Method in Florida:

RECOMMENDED SUB-SLAB DEPRESSURIZATION SYSTEMS DESIGN STANDARD OF THE FLORIDA RADON RESEARCH PROGRAM

Citation:

Hintenlang, D. AND C. Rossler. RECOMMENDED SUB-SLAB DEPRESSURIZATION SYSTEMS DESIGN STANDARD OF THE FLORIDA RADON RESEARCH PROGRAM. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Washington, D.C., EPA/600/8-91/208 (NTIS 92-105626), 1991.

Description:

The report recommends sub-slab depressurization systems design criteria to the State of Florida's Department of Community Affairs for their building code for radon resistant houses. Numerous details are set forth in the full report. Primary criteria include: (1) the operating soil depressurization system shall maintain under the entire building a static pressure less than the outdoor air static pressure; (2) suction shall be provided by a fan rated for continuous operation and having thermal overload protection with automatic reset features; (3) vent piping shall have a minimum slope of 1/8-in./ft (1.04 cm/m) in order to drain any condensation back to the soil beneath the soil gas retarder; and (4) suction points shall be equally distributed a follows: a maximum of 1300 sq ft (120.8 sq m) per suction point, each suction point located not less than 6 ft (1.3 m) nor more than 18 ft (5.5 m) from the perimeter, and multiple suction points shall be located within 36 ft (11.0m) of each other. documentation is presented in support of the recommendations.

 

 

Energy Recovery Ventilation

In a home with an inaccessible crawl space, limited slab accessibility, apartments, condominiums and other scenarios where active soil depressurization (sub-slab) isn't practical, an "Energy Recovery  Ventilation"  (ERV) can be used to treat radon problems. Energy Recovery Ventilation (ERV) reduces radon levels by adding fresh air and creating positive air pressure. Negative air pressure in lower levels of the home creates a force that pulls soil gases, including radon, inside.  By reducing the negative air pressure, Energy Recovery Ventilation can reduce radon levels while delivering fresh air into the home. These two features make the ERV system a great solution for reducing radon and other contaminants in the home's air.

 

Fresh Air Pressurization Method with Dehumidification

Diluting radon while pressurizing the home with fresh filtered air. This system proposed includes a self-contained and self controlled ventilating fan that will be installed through an opening in the wall. The unique ability this system offers is that the system will be controlled separately from the air handler.  This radon reduction method is more beneficial to the resident, because fresh air moving into the home this way, can allow for better control and better monitoring of humidity. 

 

 

Single, Multi-family, Institutional & Commercial

Our radon mitigation services include all buildings throughout Florida. We are uniquely licensed to perform many jobs other radon mitigation companies cannot and are not permitted to do. For instance, having CGC licensing allows my company to work in almost any type of building and contract with any Florida contractor needed to install a proper radon system. Other licensed radon contractors  who do not have a CGC license are very limited and sometimes cannot legally contract all of the sub-contractors needed to complete a successful and legal radon reducing mitigation project. We are also AARST Certified in multi-family measurement and mitigation
