Radon Mitigation in Naples, Fort Myers, and all of South Florida

Found A Home You Want To Buy, But It Has Radon?

For Peace of Mind, Install a Daisy Ductless, the PREMIUM Radon Mitigation System and RELAX

Our Goal is to keep you and your family safe, automatically, with little for you to do other than exchange the air filter every 18-24 months.

The DAISY Ductless Decimates Radon and Delivers Unexpected  “Fountain of Youth” Health Benefits too. (See Below)

WHY DOES THE HOME YOU LIKE HAVE RADON?

  1. This radioactive gas comes from the concrete, especially the concrete blocks used to build exterior walls even in penthouses in  high rise condos
  2. This toxic substance comes from the soil beneath the home through a construction defect that was not well-sealed. Often, air conditioners are able to “Mine” this carcinogen and blow it into the breathing zone. We call this a “Radon Fountain,” and they should always be sealed. When the level is above about 8 pCi/l, a radon fountain is always suspected.
  3. SURPRISE! Because the home probably does not have a FRESH AIR SYSTEM. A fresh air system was not installed when the home was built BECAUSE FRESH AIR WAS NOT REQUIRED until July 1, 2016. 

BUT TODAY, a Fresh Air System is MANDATORY. ASHRAE Standards 62.2-2016, 2017, and 2019 as well as the Florida Building Code REQUIRE all new homes to have fresh air systems. But even now, some builders are not installing functional fresh air systems.

Installing a Fresh Air Radon Mitigation system with MERV 13 or better filtration will deliver these surprising and well-documented Breathing Zone Health Benefits: (and bring the  home up to Code too)

  1. Greatly Reduced Risk of Lung Cancer (Radon Mitigation)
  2. Improved Sleep
  3. Improved Cognitive Function
  4. Delay of Onset of Alzheimer’s, Dementia (Exclusion of toxic, heavy metal, radioactive PM2.5 accumulating in YOUR Brain)
  5. Reduced Allergy and Asthma Triggers
  6. Exclusion of toxic aerosol particles of Red Tide and Blue Green Algae
  7. Increased Indoor Oxygen Level

CONCLUSION? An elevated Radon level probably means that the home is Well-Constructed, Air-Tight and Energy Efficient but needs fresh air in the correct amount.

Adding Fresh Air? A Truly Great Idea (But include a MERV 13+ filter and automatic humidity control)

Radon is surprisingly common in Naples and Collier County, Florida in both low and high rise buildings.

The highest radon we have mitigated was in a 23rd floor penthouse of a high rise in Naples. 35 picoCuries Per liter. Fixing it did not require a dehumidifier because we found and blocked the radon entry pathway using micro pressure and unintentional airflow management. Our 16 channel data acquisition system allowed us to collect data from sixteen points simultaneously and to view them on our computer screen simultaneously.

Radon is even  more common in Fort Myers and Lee County, Florida.

Radon shows up in upper floors because it is emitted from building materials and collects in wall cavities on every floor. We have developed a radon extraction system that extracts radon from those exterior and demising wall cavities before it can enter the breathing zone. I  presented SmartVentilation’s radon extraction technology  at the AARST International Radon Symposium in Denver in September, 2019

SmartVentilation’s R & D Has Produced Mature, Well-Proven Products to Keep Your Family Safe and Comfortable

Type III MERV 14-15 Filter SuperCleans Air like an N95 mask for your whole home for 18-24 months. Easily serviced from indoors (as required by ASHRAE Standard 62.2-2019) or outdoors. Designed and manufactured by SmartVentilation to deliver a superior radon mitigation / indoor air quality result.
As Described
5/5
Humidity Controller, Radon Level Control
Humidity Controller / Mold Preventer prevents indoor relative humidity from rising above 59.9% from radon system operation. Designed and manufactured by SmartVentilation to deliver a superior radon mitigation result

The aluminum Daisy is 9.25" long. It fits entirely within an exterior wall. It includes an electronically adjustable motorized impeller (salt spray protected) and the MERV 14-15 Type III filter. Designed and manufactured by SmartVentilation to deliver a superior radon mitigation and air quality result.

SmartVentilation’s  Type III filter material removes 95% of PM2.5.

PM2.5 carries radioactive, toxic heavy metal hitchhikers that end up in your brain where they remain, poisoning and irradiating brain tissue. 

Emerging evidence links early onset of Alzheimer’s and dementia to such brain  tissue accumulations.

CONCLUSION? To delay onset of Alzheimer’s and dementia for years, filter out PM2.5 and toxic, heavy metal hitchhikers before they can reach your brain by capturing them on a filter

SmartVentilation R&D has been successful in replacing the “technology” below with the custom designed and manufactured  products above

A homemade hog’s hair air intake filter after it received a 60-90 day service washing with soapy water. Unless it is serviced, airflow is soon blocked and radon mitigation fails.

This is a Table Lamp Timer. Some mitigators set and reset these 48 tabs to prevent mold and to adjust radon levels

This unfiltered air intake had been turned off long ago because radon system operation had caused high humidity, serious mold problems and moldy odors.

Radon Mitigation, Super-Clean Fresh Air

A Premium Daisy Ductless fresh air module quietly delivering outdoor air through a MERV 14-15 filter. into a kitchen. Variable speed, 5-70 CFM allows radon level adjustment in seconds.
Fully Automatic humidity controller prevents high indoor relative humidity and mold

A SmartVentilation Air Intake Assembly Also offered as a retrofit kit to replace homemade air intake filter installations

Custom designed / manufactured MERV 14-15 fresh air intake filter kit. Equivalent to an N95 mask for the air entering your home Service evrey 18-24 months

Filter exchange is quick and easy. Air ducts stay clean for years and years.

Polyester fluff cut with scissors from a big roll. MERV unrated, but likely MERV 2-3 . Requires service every 60-90 days. Unless the rabbit cage wire grille is installed, dirty filters are often sucked into the radon fan where they do damage and are tedious to remove.
Cone-shaped Type III MERV 14-15 filter designed by SmartVenttilation and manufacutred of premium components in a modern air filterr factory. MERV 14-15. Compare to Hog's Hair filter on left and Plyester fluff filter on right.

Compare Humidity Control and Radon Level Control

The SmartVentilation Indoor Relative Humidity “Smart” Controller showing the humidity sensing element and a jeweler’s screwdriver adjusting the radon level. This controller constantly senses indoor relative humidity and automatically operates the Daisy to prevent high  indoor relative humidity and mold. This “Smart” device accurately measures indoor relative humidity second by second and acts as needed, automatically. SmartVentilation designed and manufactures this controller in Fort Myers, FL.

A Table Lamp Timer commonly used by others in an attempt to prevent high indoor relative humidity and mold. Mold is prevented by predicting indoor relative humidity over the year and then adjusting 48 little tabs to turn the radon system on and off automatically, hoping that indoor relative humidity will not rise high enough to create mold issues. This device has no idea what indoor relative humidity actually is. This table lamp timer is also the means of adjusting the radon level by setting and resetting 48 little tabs (grey)

 This home did not  have an air intake filter so the filth that got into the air conditioner may have accumulated to an inch depth in this duct and spilled out into the air conditioner closet floor.
