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.

Answer: 
Hello,
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. If the fan is mounted horizontally a pool of moisture can form in the low part of the fan and Read More

Radon Mitigation fans should only be mounted vertically. The vertical mounting allows moisture that condensates in the pipe to flow through the fan. If the fan is mounted horizontally a pool of moisture can form in the low part of the fan and impact the fan blade.

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.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 47 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. April 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good product, good price Installed with bypass as required in northern climate. Radon went from 7pC/l to 0.7pC/l three days after installation. I had to add elbows in condensate bypass to use included wall brackets. It was the only one I found for sale with the pressure indicator included. That helped me choose Suncourt over others. January 26, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by so far so good easy to follow instructions and worth the safety and value May 3, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by the fan is quiet but need some work on electrical power connection The fan runs very quiet and smoothly. Everything is fine except the electrical power connection. Need a power cord with the plug to connect the power. April 27, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good solution to the problem Some of the negative reviews that I had read were due to excessive noise. I installed the fan per the instructions and it is rather quiet. It came with a pressure indicator so you can see that it is pulling a vacuum. February 25, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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). June 25, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good product Cost effective product. Recommended For future use. February 10, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Does the job Having a complete kit made installation made things easy. Local code requires a cutoff for the fan so I attached a cord with a molded plug instead of hard-wiring the unit. The only other thing needed beyond what was included was a sealant required when installing the flow gauge. It reduced my radon level from 4.7 pC to 0.3 pC which was at the background radiation level at my area. The only negative is that the unit produces a bit more noise that I would have liked. I think that if the couplings were softer they wouldn't transfer so much from the fan to the pipe. Since the pipe runs through all floors you can hear it anywhere near that pipe. To be fair it's not loud enough to be annoying. On the good side you can easily tell if it's still running. Doing this work myself saved me several hundreds of dollars over using a professional installer and was trivial. I ran an outlet to the area for the fan in the attic, cut the existing pipe and inserted it. It did require submitting plans for approval by our township (kind of overkill for a plug-in fan in my book) and I was required to use an independent tester to certify the radon level was properly mitigated. Expect to spend up to a couple hundred over the price of the fan if you have the same requirements in your area. December 10, 2013
