Most energy efficient Radon Mitigation Fan?
Does anyone know which brand/model series of radon mitigation fans are the most energy efficient? It is my understanding radon mitigation fans run continuously, so efficacy and silent operation would seem to be primary concerns, but I’m not finding much info about this.
Unfortunately, Energystar.gov does not have a specific Radon Fan category. Filtering by ventilating fans, and further by In Line single port and multi port fans, returns a list of many fans of the type typically used for radon mitigation. But further investigation indicates not all such fans are ideal for radon.
For example, the NuTone ILF120 has a efficacy of 6.3, pulling 0.2 amps, but the NuTone website Q&A for this model recommends the ILRF for radon. The ILRF is not Energy Star rated, nor is it rated to run continuously, and it pulls 0.7 amps.
