What Is A Low Voltage Radon Fan…And Why Do You Care?

Low Voltage radon fans have garnered growing interest because many jurisdictions do not require installation by a licensed electrician. The primary factor for making that determination has to do with ability to cause harm or injury.

Residential housing voltage (also known as line voltage) is typically between 100 and 250 VAC. For homeowners, this is considered high voltage, and requires a licensed professional when working on any part of the system. This electric power has the potential to cause harm or injury directly, not only as a result of the voltage, but the availability of a large amount of current. These two elements, voltage and current, define the amount of power available.  Read Full Article>

Are RadonAway Fans Safety Certified?

All RadonAway fans are ETL Listed. ETL Certification and UL Certification, apart from the company that provides the designation, have no marked difference between them. Both companies that provide these certifications use the same criteria to independently test products to the same standards. RadonAway is proud to have listed our fans for over 20 years with ETL (a division of Intertek, founded by Thomas Edison), known for their efficiency and quality.  Read Full Article>

Will Radon Fans Change Color When Installed Outside?

Introduced on May 1, 2017, all RadonAway Pro Series fans with our engineered Stay-White™ housings are built white, install white, and stay white. Before the Pro Series launch, the thermoplastic/fire-retardant formulation of the fan housings could result in the plastic surface developing a natural patina when exposed to daylight conditions over time. Contrary to popular belief, this is NOT an indication of the plastic degrading, rather a reaction of the fire retardant to UV light.  Read Full Article>

The Truth About Where RadonAway Fan Motors Are Made

At RadonAway, our Engineering team knows that different homes require different fans, and different fans require different motor specifications - that's a fact.  We have four sources for our motors, which come to us from Germany, France, England, and China. Currently between 15% and 20% of our fans employ motors from our Chinese supplier, Chikee, which has been widely used and recognized for quality and efficiency within the HVAC(R) industry. We are proud to partner with Chikee, as we are proud to partner with all four of our expert motor manufacturers. Ultimately, our fan motors are selected based on which manufacturer best meets our engineered specifications for a particular fan.  Read Full Article>

What Do RadonAway Fan Temperature Ratings Mean?

Occasionally we're asked to clear up some confusion regarding the meaning of RadonAway's fan temperature ratings. The "Normal Operating Temperature" – as listed in previous RadonAway fan instructions – is based on ambient temperature conditions that can be expected throughout most of the U.S. for a fan installed outside, NOT the temperature where the fan trips the thermal overload relay. All RadonAway fans are equipped with thermal overload relays rated to operate up to 266°F or 302°F (depending on the motor specifications for each fan model), before cutting fan power. Read Full Article>

Why Are RadonAway's Electrical Boxes Designed The Way They Are?

Every element of a RadonAway fan is the result of careful research, thorough testing, and skilled engineering – the electrical boxes are no different. RadonAway engineers design every aspect, from how we secure our electrical box covers, to the number of cover attachment points, to adding a condensate drain hole near the bottom of the electrical box. All of these fan characteristics are logical design choices, rooted in sound engineering.  Read Full Article>
