Benefits of Studying Radon Mitigation at our Radon Training Slab
Our radon mitigation training slab is an incredible teaching tool for the students who attend this course. In real time, radon mitigation students will have a chance to see how different radon fans perform and observe how closely the diagnostic testing was able to predict the final results! Students will have the opportunity to observe and participate in live demonstrations that will reinforce their understanding of the following important radon mitigation concepts.
- How a Radon Mitigation System Influences the Pressure Under the Slab
- How Diagnostic Sub-slab Pressure Field Extension Tests are Performed
- How Different Radon Fan Models Perform in Comparison to the Diagnostic Testing that was Done
- How Much Wattage Each Radon Fan Uses
