A passive sub-slab depressurization mitigation system pulls radon from the home through the basement and up to the roof, but without the use of a radon removal fan. Instead, these systems count on the “stack effect,” allowing thermal differences in air pressure to push the radon gas downward, through the installed system, and toward the exhaust vent.

Because passive sub-slab depressurization mitigation systems rely on changes in air pressure to function properly, however, they’re not considered as effective as other radon mitigation systems. Even still, many homeowners and business owners do utilize them with success.

If a passive sub-slab depressurization mitigation system sounds like it might be the right solution for your home or business, contact Nordic Radon Mitigation to learn more about the installation process. We have years of experience in working as a radon mitigation contractor in the Fargo area, and we have the experience and expertise to help you select the right system for your needs.

Passive Radon Mitigation System

This image shows a passive radon mitigation system installed in a residential setting. The system includes components designed to reduce radon levels without an active fan. Features may include vent pipes, a radon barrier, and other structural elements aimed at allowing natural radon gas dispersal.

Activated Passive Radon Mitigation System with Fan

The second image shows the same passive radon mitigation system after activation with a fan. The addition of the fan enhances the system’s efficiency by actively drawing radon gas from the soil and expelling it outside. The graph or measurement data in the image may indicate a noticeable reduction in radon levels, demonstrating the system’s effectiveness when in operation.
