Answer: 
No, but you can incorporate a light on a switch or you can visually see if fan is running on the vacuum gauge that comes with the fan kit.

Home has 5.8 in the basement. Does the fan have variable speeds so that I may adjust it so that I don't waste power on the fan and lose heat/cooling?

Answer: 
Hello,
When installed as a sub-slab depressurization fan there should be little to no loss of heated or cooled air. The suction side of the fan is sealed under the slab of the home and is not open to the homes conditioned air. We do not recommend a variable speed switch on radon fans for one main reason. If you lower the RPM's, and consequently the suction, to much the fan can not do its job. Lower Read More
Hello,
When installed as a sub-slab depressurization fan there should be little to no loss of heated or cooled air. The suction side of the fan is sealed under the slab of the home and is not open to the homes conditioned air. We do not recommend a variable speed switch on radon fans for one main reason. If you lower the RPM's, and consequently the suction, to much the fan can not do its job. Lower RPM's mean lower suction. At some point the suction effect of the house would pull the radon into the home as if you did not have a radon fan. You also do not change the wattage used appreciably with a fan speed controller. Running watts of the Radon Mitigation fan are 77 watts. If you have any questions about this please contact us at 800-999-3267 M-F 8-4:30 central time. We would be happy to answer your questions.
Thanks,

Radon mitigation fans should not be mounted in a basement or in a horizontal position. Radon mitigation fans should be outside or above all living spaces. Radon Mitigation fans should only be mounted vertically. The vertical mounting allows moisture that condensates in the pipe to flow through the fan.

Answer: 
Sure 4" to 3" will work find. It is really a matter of preference. You might consider doing one penetration and then testing before you do a second penetration. You might not need it.

Had to call an electrician for that. wires in the kit need to be longer, more manageable. But works fine now (quiet) seems to have a good draw and was a good value considering a $800-$1000 visit from a radon repair company

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Suncourt Radon mitigation fan Good product, easy to install. You will need a cord, I cut one off of an old halogen shop light (2 prong with a ground). Unit only pulls about a 1/2 amp so it does not have to be a very heavy wire.

Easy to install (the 3 in is really about 3.5 inch OD pipe) and lower the radon level within a few days to below 3 pCi/L. Wish they'd include the power cord (maybe 15-20 ft).

It is remarkably quiet, quieter than basically any bathroom ceiling fan. Installation was a breeze, just had to cut the passive 4" pipe with a little extra clearance to make sure the fan doesn't touch the existing pipe (to minimize any noise transmission). I didn't bother using the brackets. The unit needs to be level, which is a little bit tricky, but a short hand level seemed to do the job. The couplings seem nice, but are not the right size for most installations, I would think (including mine). But standard black rubber couplings worked fine, and noise transmission doesn't seem to be a problem. As others noted, you will need an old 3-prong cord from something (no need to hard-wire it into a box). The device is only 75 watts, so it needn't be especially heavy-duty. My basement is a typical 4-bedroom size, and the negative pressure per the manometer looks ok (the scale is NOT calibrated; no idea why not. Also note the the fluid is some sort of viscous oil, so water is probably not the best thing to replenish with, if needed). I mounted it in the basement. Rules say don't do that, since if the top connector somehow comes off, or that pipe breaks inside the basement, subslab air will be pumped into the house -- not good. But it is nearly impossible to imagine how that would happen in most situations; consider yours carefully and if it seems more prudent, install it outside (harder to wire, of course) or in the attic. Unfortunately it is too early to comment on its longevity; I'm hoping for the best. It seems reasonably well built. Hence only 4 stars so far, 5 if it lasts 10 yrs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice fresh air fan My goal was to get some fresh air moving in the basement. If this fan could accomplish that goal, I had planned to buy a second fan, to add a full radon removal setup to the sump hole where we have radon. (Radon is only emitted from one of our four sump holes). However, after adding this fan in another area (well away from the radon source), the radon detectors (at the source) now indicate normal radon gas levels. I've checked it twice and our radon problem seems to be gone. Just by adding a little fresh air flow. Currently running the fan 7 hours a day, and the average reading this morning is 1.6 pCi/L (third test). Tested with both detectors hanging 16" above the 'open' sump hole. The 'Before' (fresh air fan) reading was 4.6 pCi/L with the sump hole sealed. (Before flooding necessitated installing the sump pump).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good buy When my house was built 25 years ago, contractor installed 3" ABS piping to roof, including sub-slab perf pipe for future radon mitigation. My radon levels measured over twice the recommended 4 pC/L, so I finally got around to mitigation as a DIY project. I had problem in attic, because the existing pipe was almost all at 45 degrees, with not enough vertical for the fan. I had to modify attic pipes and elbows to get a 22.5 degree angle, allowing a good vertical run for the fan, after which the installation was pretty straightforward. I haven't yet measured my post-mitigation radon level - expect to do that in a week or so. Just a little bit of noise heard in room below.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Radon Mitigation Fan Kit The price was good Fan installed easily Problem with the fan gives off a hum noise thru entire wall. Very noticeable in the garage where the pipe goes up the wall into the attic of the garage, then out thru the roof. I've tried putting pieces of rubber backed carpet behind the mounting flanges but it is still sending the hum noise on the end of the house wall. I'll have to figure out something for the mounting to stop the resonation hum thru the entire wall. More rubber I guess, anyone with suggestions. This is my first time dealing with this type of fan so I'm not sure weather there all this way no matter what brand you get. So can I recomend it, the price was very good for what you received, now lets see how long it runs for. I saved about 750 dollars by installing it myself, plus I hired a person to go up on the roof to install the roof flang. My total cost was about 350 dollars and took about 10 hrs. at a slow and easy pace (over 3 days). The fan seems to be doing the job according to the vacume meter. I'll do another Radon test in a couple of weeks and I hope it goes from 29 down to below 4.
