Does RRNC Work? – A Florida Case Study
Jorge Laguna, M.S.
Florida Radon Program
Tallahassee, FL/United States of America
 The US Environmental Protection Agency and states encourage building radon resistant (ready) new homes (RRNC). The Florida Radon Program evaluated a home built following RRNC practices in Tallahassee.  The home in question was measured with the passive system in three occasions.  Once with the passive system operating normally; next, with the system capped; and finally simulating a fan on the system by using a shop-vac at the end of the radon exhaust pipe on the roof.  Data indicate the system is producing reductions on the radon levels from 25% to 99% depending on the method used.
