radon gas entering home

Radon levels vary from house to house. The only way to know if your home has high levels of radon is with testing.

Radon is an invisible, odorless gas that can have a big impact on the air quality in your home. Radon is responsible for lung cancer deaths in Delaware & E. Shore Maryland and all over the United States. Testing is the only way to know if you and your family are at risk from radon exposure. 

Radon testing is easy and affordable, and Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva offers several options for testing. If a radon problem is found in your home, we can provide safe mitigation to reduce the levels in your home.

If you have questions about radon testing or mitigation, or you'd like to schedule an in-home consultation, call us at 1-877-304-9769 or click below.

Why is Radon a Problem?

Radon is a radioactive gas that comes from the natural decay of uranium and is found in nearly all soils. Radon moves up through the ground and into your home through cracks and openings in the foundation. Your home then traps the radon inside, where it can build up. Studies have shown that prolonged exposure to radon can significantly increase your potential for lung cancer. Any home can have a radon problem, including new and old homes, well-sealed and drafty homes, and homes with basements, crawl spaces and slab-on-grade foundations. Luckily, a radon problem is easy to fix and Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva offers effective systems and professional installation.

Our Radon Mitigation Method: Sub-Slab Depressurization

Radon mitigation and testing in Dover

Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva's radon mitigation system uses sub-slab depressurization to reduce radon levels.

How sub-slab depressurization works in radon mitigation:

  • PVC pipe collects soil gasses
  • Radon is piped upwards in the building through the stack effect
  • A radon depressurization vent forces radon gas out of your house

As a full-service radon mitigation contractor, Dr. Energy Saver Delmarva can install a radon mitigation system that is compatible with the current waterproofing system in your basement or crawl space.

We provides multifamily radon mitigation in compliance with the HUD Radon Policy. If testing confirms radon levels above 4 picocuries (pCi/L), mitigation must be performed by a radon professional reduce the level of radon gas in the air to a safe amount.
