Radon is a radioactive gas that is produced by the natural breakdown of uranium in soil, rock and water. Radon typically moves up from the ground through your sump pit and cracks in your foundation.

A simple radon test can help keep you and your family safe.
Yes, depending on the style and floor plan of your home there are a few options for air conditioning. Smaller homes can be easily cooled with a ductless mini-split air conditioning system. Larger homes might be better suited with an attic style central air conditioning system.
The biggest reason you should have your ductwork cleaned is to improve your indoor air quality. It’s the air you breathe every day. Not only will it reduce the amount of airborne dust it will potentially increase the efficiency of your heating and cooling equipment.
An HRV system also known as a heat recovery ventilator will remove the excess moisture along with significantly improving the indoor air quality of your home. The air in your home can be up to 70 times worse than outdoor air. Poor indoor air quality can aggravate allergies and asthma and cause headaches and fatigue. An HRV replaces indoor stale air with an identical amount of fresh air. This balanced ventilation is critical to prevent moisture buildup in your home during the heating season which can lead to expensive rot damage and hazardous mold.
