Radon

Radon is a radioactive gas found naturally in the environment. Radon is invisible, odourless and tasteless and emits ionizing radiation. When radon is confined to enclosed or poorly ventilated spaces, it can accumulate to high levels. Radon levels are generally highest in basements and crawl spaces because these areas are nearest to the source and are usually poorly ventilated. In the open air, the amount of radon gas is very small and does not pose a health risk. In the last several years Health Canada has made it a priority to educate the public on the long-term health effects of radon gas in your home.
How To Manage Radon

Radon gas originates in the earth and is found in just about every building to some level. However, it is a concern when it reaches unacceptable levels.

Flow can design and install Radon mitigation systems in your home once it is proven that it is present. Such testing programs should measure multiple locations in the home and observe the data through multiple season changes (9 – 12 months) to properly inform the design of a system that will address the issue comprehensively. These systems may include:

  • 1.

    Sub-Slab Depressurization (SSD)

  • 2.

    Home Ventilation

  • Sub-Slab Depressurization (SSD)

    The most common form of radon mitigation is sub-slab depressurization. Suction pipes are inserted through the floor and into the concrete slab beneath the home in order to draw out radon gas and vent it outside of the home. This method is very effective although requires more work to drill into the foundation of your home. If radon levels are high in your home this method is the best option to reduce radon gas in your home to a safe level.

  • Home Ventilation

    You can have a radon mitigation fan installed in your home that pulls radon from the air in your home through ductwork that leads to an outside vent. Proper installation with high quality vents is important to ensure that the radon vented outside does not seep back in.

Evict Radon

For basic testing and monitoring needs, Flow endorses the Evict Radon program accessible to eligible Citizen Scientists through the University of Calgary. This program is easy to sign up for and will allow you to monitor the presence of Radon in your home for an affordable price. Should you have time sensitive or more demanding requirements than the Evict Radon program can serve, Flow will be happy to connect you with a proven Air Quality specialist from our network of active trade partners as we work to ensure your home is free of this serious health concern.

Thermostats

If you keep forgetting to turn down the thermostat when you leave for vacation or while you're at work, call our certified thermostat installers of WI-FI programmable thermostats and “smart” thermostats and learn more about how you can control the temperature of your home from your phone or computer while you are away. A programmable thermostat or smart thermostat can reduce your power usage when used correctly. This can help you save on your utility bills and save energy.
Thermostat Installation

We remind our customers that before installing a programmable thermostat yourself, remember not all thermostats are compatible with your furnace. Call Flow to find out more about smart thermostat options that are compatible with your current home heating system.

Thermostat Technology

Your thermostat controls half your energy bill! Flow can source a wide range of thermostats-including the latest in smart technology like the Nest, Ecobee, Emerson and AprilAire thermostats, which are compatible with most heating and cooling systems and pair with Alexa and Google Home systems.

The advantage of a smart thermostat, like the Nest, is it learns your behaviour and programs itself so you can save energy just by living life. You can also adjust the temperature from your phone so your home will always be comfortable.

Smart thermostats are excellent but their Wiring can be tricky so let Flow expert technicians perform the installation and your thermostat will be up and running in no time!
