Syracuse Radon Mitigation and Testing ServicesServing Syracuse and Central New York - For Service or Free Estimate call: 315-439-1103
Tom Francis – I founded A Best Radon Systems in 2008 to fill the need for a reputable Syracuse radon mitigation company. I’ve performed more than 2000 home inspections since 1997 and for most of those I also tested for radon. I’ve tested dozens of homes with radon mitigation systems that “failed” the radon test, meaning the radon tested above 4 pCi/L, sometimes very much so. I came to find out many radon mitigation companies never perform a post mitigation radon test to confirm the proper operation of their system. Homebuyers assumed with the system installed the radon was reduced, unfortunately, not always the case, and they sometimes don’t realize it until the house sells again. A Best Radon Systems has built a reputation as one of the premier radon companies in Central New York. We have above 99.5% success rate lowering radon below 4 pCi/L in several hundred homes and businesses since 2008. And we do tough jobs others turn down – old homes with dirt floors and crawl spaces, etc. Most of our systems reduce radon below 2 pCi/L to as low as zero. Guaranteed results and transferable warranty. You can rest assured that we can fix your radon problems.
My emphasis is on QUALITY – not quantity or speed; most Syracuse radon mitigation systems are installed in one day but done with care and attention to detail. I’ve earned a reputation among realtors as the go to company for fixing radon problems, for difficult mitigation jobs other contractors turn down and for fixing failed radon mitigation systems. Allow me to put my experience at work for you. Mission Statement: My goal is to provide great customer service and fine craftsmanship at an affordable price. I Guarantee to stand by my work. It’s my business to keep your family safe!

I don’t recommend shopping by price alone. I’ve inspected hundreds and repaired dozens of Central New York radon mitigation systems installed by other radon contractors and homeowners. Well above 10% of these systems have significant safety issues and more than 25% are improperly installed, using substandard materials. Unfortunately some of the most “experienced” radon contractors are those who cut corners to cut costs as much as possible and get the job done in the least amount of time. Most importantly you want a quality radon removal installation that safely reduces radon to a very low level.
Some of the safety defects I’ve found on improperly installed radon mitigation systems include: Fans installed in living areas, the use of inferior quality fans and pipe not designed for radon gas, improper and unsafe wiring or switching, vent pipes joined without glue, loose and leaking vent pipe joints, vent pipes that have become disconnected and fallen apart inside attics, walls and ceiling cavities, serious back draft of gas heating appliances causing carbon monoxide leakage into home due to improper air sealing on active fan mitigation systems.
