Passive Sub-Slab Depressurization

Passive sub-slab depressurization systems are often recommended for newly constructed homes, since newer buildings tend to be airtight and have the primary components of the system already built in.

What Is Passive Sub-Slab Depressurization?

Periodic Table of Elements: No. 86 Radon

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.
