WPB  Radon  & Vapor Intrusion Mitigation Fan Testing

                   All fans are tested under identical conditions.

Each fan is connected to 10 feet of PVC piping.
Airflow, pressure & wattage are then measured
 as resistance is applied to the intake.

Choosing Best Fan to Use

There is no best fan but there can be the best fan for your situation.
 Generally fans can be broken into Four categories:

       Low Wattage Fans  - good sub-slab gravel and slab sealing.
 Mid Range Fans  -  less than optimal sub-slab aggregate and/or slab leakage
High Flow Fans  -  Lots of slab leaks or very porous soil or multiple foundations to treat  High Vacuum Fans  -  Packed dirt under the slab with likely low system airflow.

Sometimes the mitigation system has both characteristics such as compacted soil under a slab and high airflow sub-membrane suction in a crawl space.  The High Flow fans will generally take care of this situation but there is a noise and energy use penalty.

It is also wise to always choose the lowest wattage fan that will accomplish the job.  Lower wattage fans are almost always quieter and their long term energy costs can be significant.

Pipe size limits the maximum airflow that can be achieved. In the chart below the 20 watt RP140 with 4" pipe moves as much free air as a 120 watt HP220 can move with 3" pipe.  If you need to move air you must have a large enough pipe.
