Just like finding out that cholesterol levels are a little high, discovering that your home has more-than-optimal levels of radon isn’t the end of the world. In both cases, the solution is to ask a professional for suggestions that help. When it comes to radon, experts may recommend using active or passive radon mitigation to take care of any issues. What’s the difference?

Passive vs. Active Mitigation

Passive radon mitigation systems help vent any radon in the home naturally. These systems are often used in new home construction, and they use air currents to get rid of excess gases. In contrast, active systems use quiet electric fans to give radon the boot. Combining both passive and active radon mitigation gives you the best of both worlds: a classic home appearance and the power to remove radon quickly, reliably and easily.
