Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

This is a continuing education course on building radon-resistant homes and buildings. The course provides an introduction to radon and how it emits from soils and accumulates in homes as a dangerous and deadly gas. From the understanding of how important radon resistance is, this course gives a detailed description on the implementation of different types of radon-resistant systems, how they differ, and what system to use where. This course also gives detailed instructions for installing radon-resistant systems in slab-on-grade or basement foundations, crawlspaces, and combination foundations.

Questions this course will answer:

• Does it make sense to build radon-resistant homes?
• What is radon?
