Exhaust-Only Ventilation Systems and Radon

first_imgArticles on mechanical ventilation commonly warn builders that exhaust-only ventilation systems can pull radon into a house through foundation cracks. The warning makes intuitive sense: after all, an exhaust-only ventilation system works by depressurizing a house with respect to the outdoors, and it seems obvious that depressurization could pull soil gases into a basement.One thing I’ve learned over the years, however, is that just because an idea is intuitively obvious, doesn’t mean it’s true. Throughout history, many observers have speculated; far fewer have actually made measurements.An exhaust-only ventilation system depends on one or more exhaust fans (usually bathroom exhaust fans) that either operate continuously or intermittently. This type of ventilation system is usually set up to ventilate a house at the rate recommended by ASHRAE 62.2 — somewhere in the range of 50 to 100 cfm for most homes.The air that is removed from a home by an exhaust fan is replaced by outdoor air entering the home through random cracks in the building envelope.It isn’t hard to find authors who warn that exhaust-only ventilation systems can be dangerous. Here are some examples from the Web:Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that is present in some soils. It can enter a house through cracks in the building’s foundation.Indoor radon levels can be tested; if long-term testing shows radon levels above 4 picocuries per liter, it’s a good idea to install a radon mitigation system. (For more information, see All About Radon.)Most experts explain that radon gas is drawn into a house by the stack effect. The stack effect is a function of delta T — the difference between the indoor and outdoor temperature — so the effect is strongest during the winter. Indoor air escapes through ceiling cracks; as a result,… Sign up for a free trial and get instant access to this article as well as GBA’s complete library of premium articles and construction details.

first_imgBronze medallists Samaresh Jung, Jitu Rai and Prakash Nanjappa at the 17th Asian Games in Incheon. Photo: PTI.Indian men settled for a bronze medal after narrowly missing the silver in the 10m air pistol event at the Ongnyeon shooting range, continuing their good run in the 17th Asian Games, on Sunday.Their latest shooting star Jitu Rai entered the eight-man final as the second best qualifier but could not stand on the podium after finishing fifth, a day after clinching the 50m gold.Rai’s precise shooting, that helped him garner 585 points and qualify with a point behind Kazakhstan’s Rashid Yunusmetov, backed up by Samaresh Jung’s 580 (who finished 9th) and Prakash Nanjappa’s 578 (14th), albeit with an injured leg, helped India garner 1743 points, the same as second placed China, for the bronze.India and China were level on points and the silver was decided by the number of Xs (bullseye) in the tens in which the latter tallied one more – 65 to India’s 64.The gold was won by hosts South Korea with a combined tally of 1744, leading Samaresh to later say that “why only silver, we narrowly missed the gold too”.Rai had provided India with their first gold in these Games on day one of competitions on Saturday.Rai’s sequence of hits at the target were 97, 99, 95, 98, 97 and 99 and he even expressed his disappointment despite scoring tens at times.Burly Samaresh, the 2006 Commonwealth Games ‘Gold Finger’, came up with 97, 97, 97, 96, 96 and 98 to finish one slot outside the finals qualification.He later said, “I am pretty happy to finish with a medal and not exactly disappointed (at not making the finals).”advertisement”Why only silver, we missed out on the gold too by one point. But that’s how it goes,” he said.Like all other shooting contingent members, he too had to return to India after the World Championships in Spain to get Korean visas in the absence of their accreditations with them but, unlike a few of the rest, said he was quite happy to spend a day at home after spending several days overseas.Asked about his immediate future, he said, “I am not even looking at the Rio qualifications now. If I get a quota I will go and shoot there. It’s two years away. I will be taking part in the nationals.”last_img read more

Also, this mosquito cannot fly beyond 200 metres. This means, either it bred in your house or the neighbourhood,” Kejriwal said. He said the city reported 60 deaths and more than 15,000 cases of dengue in 2015. In 2018, the number came down to 2,798 and only four deaths were reported. “We need to reduce it further. We should try and ensure there’s no death due to dengue this year,” he said appealing to people to popularise the campaign by posting pictures and videos on social media. The Delhi government on Friday asked all agencies and departments concerned to convert the fight against dengue into a mass movement. A total of 75 dengue cases have been reported in the national capital this year, with 35 of them recorded in August, according to the latest municipal report released earlier this week. At least 131 cases of malaria have also been reported till August 24, the report said.last_img read more
