WHAT IS RADONAWAY RP145 RADON MITIGATION FAN?
RadonAway RP145 is a well-accepted radon mitigation fan that intends on working as an active soil depressurization system for plummeting the unsafe radon gas. This mitigation fan is an ideal choice for both new constructions as well as the retrofit radon systems.
HOW IT WORKS?
This RP Series Radon Mitigation Fan can be mounted both indoors as well as outdoors. One should follow the EPA recommendations for choosing the fan location. The fan can be directly mounted on the system pipe or be fastened to a support structure by the means of any non-compulsory mounting bracket. Mount the fan vertically with the outlet facing upwards. Assure that the unit is at level and plumb. Make sure that the radon mitigation fan doesn’t contact any building surface when mounting directly on the system pipe. This avoids the vibration noise, if any.
Also make sure to seal all the major openings, cracks or any sort of penetrations in the building slab while installing active soil depressurization system for radon reduction. And fan sizing for the retrofits may require professional designing and diagnostics.

WHAT’S NOT GOOD
Maximum users are satisfied with the product and it’s functioning. The only minus points (that’s also a positive) is that all the RP series radon mitigation fans work so silently that the user never comes to know in case it stops (due to any reason). You always need to keep a routine check on the fan to ensure that it’s working.
