Tom Francis radon mitigation professional“I founded A Best Radon Systems in 2008 to fill the need for a reputable Syracuse radon mitigation company.” – Tom Francis, Licensed NY State Home Inspector and Radon Mitigation Contractor

Experience – I’ve performed more than 2000 home inspections since 1997 and for most of those I also tested for radon. I’ve tested many well over 100 homes with radon mitigation systems that “failed” the radon test, meaning the radon tested above 4 pCi/L. A lot of those radon tests were performed in homes that had active radon mitigation systems. I learned early on that many radon mitigation companies never perform or provide a post mitigation radon test to confirm the proper operation of their systems. Most times a home seller or buyer assumes when the radon system is installed, the radon is sufficiently reduced, unfortunately this is not always the case. Oftentimes they don’t realize until years later when the house is again for sale and retested for radon and the radon test fails. They are surprised and upset to find high radon levels even though they have a radon mitigation system that was operating with fan running yet unacceptable high levels of radon present.

Success Rate – We have above 99.5% success rate lowering radon below 4 pCi/L in several hundred homes and businesses since 2007. The 0.5 percent of homes where radon levels were not reduced below 4 pCi/L was due to the homeowner(s) not wanting to proceed with the second phase of additional work that was required because they were satisfied with the level that was achieved very close to 4.0 specifically in a basement that was not a living area.. 

Reputation and a Warranty we back up – A lot of our radon mitigation experience and proprietary mitigation techniques were learned as we did tough jobs other companies turned down, such as old homes with dirt floors and crawl spaces. We have mitigated about 10 homes with radon levels above 100 pCi/L. We are refularly called on to remedy failed radon systems where other installers had given up because they were not able to reduce the radon to below 4.0 pCi/L. The vast majority of the radon systems we install reduce radon below 2 pCi/L and many to as low as zero. We guarantee radon results below 4 pCi/L and our radon mitigation systems have a 5 year parts and labor, transferable warranty. You can rest assured that we can fix your radon problems.

We’re Here When You Need Us – I might add I’ve been doing business and servicing our clients honoring our warranties in central New York since 1997. Dozens of other radon contractors have come and gone during that time, most were general contractors or home inspectors who did occasional jobs as an aside of their regular work. I’m only aware of one company in the area that has been doing radon mitigation longer, and they currently have no online reviews. Interestingly it seems their older reviews have been scrubbed away.

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.
