How much does a Radon Mitigation System Cost? - RSOW

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW KNOW ABOUT THE COST OF INSTALLING A RADON MITIGATION SYSTEM AND PRICING IN THE MADISON AREA

It’s important to us here at radon Solutions of Wisconsin to educate our friends, family, and neighbors about the dangers of Radon Gas and why it’s important to have their homes tested. We get a variety of questions but one of the first is normally “How much does a Radon Mitigation System Cost?”. So we’ve decided to give our fellow Wisconsinite’s a little more detail beyond our standard answer of “It really depends, if you have a moment can I ask you some questions about your house?”. The fact of the matter is every house from Madison to Dodgeville, to Sun Prairie are all different and without having these important details below, we can’t accurately answer that question.
Here are some of the main questions our team of Licensed Radon Gas Experts at Radon Solutions of Wisconsin ask when determining the price of your Radon Mitigation System installation.
  • Have you tested your house? If the answer is yes, where was it tested and what is the radon level?
  • How old is your house or commercial property?
  • Does your house or business  have a finished or unfinished basement? Does the home have a partially finished basement or is it built on a slab?
  • Does your home’s basement have a sump pump or sump crock?
  • Does your home or business’s basement have a french or perimeter drain?
  • Does your house have an addition with a crawlspace under it?

Overcoming Difficult Radon Mitigation System Installs In Madison


RADON MITIGATION SYSTEM INSTALLERS IN MADISON, WI


  Every Reduction System Installation is different, take your time and hire a Licensed Radon Mitigation Contractor with experience and solid track record.


As one of Madison WI’s Most Recommended Radon Mitigation Companies, Radon Solutions of Wisconsin runs in to some very unique and difficult installations. We install Radon Reduction Systems in new homes, exiting homes, and in this case, an existing home with a newer addition. Just like the interior aesthetics of a brand new home in Madison probably won’t match up with the interior layout and colors of a 35 year old home, we run in to a similar situation when installing Radon Mitigation Systems throughout Southern Wisconsin.

This property, located on the West Side of Madison near Verona was roughly 40 years old with a 6 month old addition. Renovated homes like this can cause some very tricky mitigation problems which is why it’s paramount to use a Licensed Radon Reduction Contractor that is not only experienced and knowledgeable, but extremely thorough when planning out your Radon Mitigation System Installation project.

Challenging Radon Mitigation System Installation Madison, Wisconsin



So when it came to this home in particular, our Mitigation System Installers knew right away that the footing between the addition and the original house could cause air flow issues beneath the concrete slab. Without your Radon Company properly addressing and planing for these factors you’ll end up with a half functional Radon Mitigation System that’s not properly drawing out the dangerous Radon Gas that exists in many of The Greater Madison Area homes. Radon Solutions of Wisconsin’s treats every every job as if it was one of our own homes. We care, we plan, we discuss with you the best option for your home and family, and we follow through!

Compustar Remote Car Starter Facts - Tint Factory of Madison


COMPUSTAR, THE BEST IN REMOTE CAR STARTERS



A remote car start is one of the best additions to install on your vehicle. It is also a very confusing
purchase. Our intent with this post is to help you avoid some of the most common mistakes people make when buying remote car starters.

Buy a remote car starter with enough range

I use the word “range” even though I hate to. Manufacturers have no choice but to put “500-foot range” or “3,000-foot range” on their packaging. It is important to keep in mind that these are absolutely perfect numbers – in environments with no RF interference, no walls, no windows and no buildings to go around… In other words, the middle of the desert! Range is unimportant for most people. Not many of our customers need to start their vehicles from more than 1,000 feet away. Almost everyone wants to start a vehicle from inside a building. This is where transmitter power becomes important. At the Tint Factory, we talk about transmitter power rather than range. The 500ft model is the one that all others are based on. The 1,500-foot model is considered “3X” power (3 times the transmitter strength of our base model). Another model is our 5,000-foot that is considered “10X” power. This gives our customers a better indication of what they are getting. Don’t shortchange yourself with transmitter range (power). You are going to use your starter in more places than your home or workplace. You will want to use it from the mall, sporting events, parking garages, hospitals, restaurants, etc. If in doubt, pay a little more to get a more powerful unit. You want your car to be running when you get to it!

Does Your Home or Building Need Radon Testing? - Radon Solutions of Wisconsin

Here at Radon Solutions of Wisconsin we do our best to inform our clients and the public of the dangers of Radon Gas and how to deal with this common issue in the Madison, Wisconsin area. Lets be honest, Radon is one of the top causes of Lung Cancer. With that being said we found an amazing article by U.S. News and World Report we wanted to share with you...

Precise and Affordable Radon Testing Company Serving the Greater Madison, Wisconsin areas including Sun Prairie and Dodgeville. Residential or Commercial Radon Mitigation Available.


 "Radon" sounds like a secret supervillain, and you could say that's essentially what it is. An invisible, odorless gas, radon concentrates in homes and buildings, exposing those who breathe it in to the second-top cause of lung cancer in the U.S. The good news is radon testing is simple; high-radon homes can be mitigated or fixed – and free or reduced-cost testing is offered in many areas.

Invisible Carcinogen

"Radon is actually the leading environmental cause of cancer mortality in the United States," says Bill Field, a professor of occupational and environmental health at the University of Iowa. "About 21,000 people die each year from it. People really underestimate its importance."

Lung cancer is the only type of cancer with a proven association to protracted exposure to radon. "We have some suspicions it may be related to other types of cancers, but there are no studies that have conclusively shown that," Field says.

As a cause of lung cancer in the U.S., radon is surpassed only by smoking. And people who smoke are even more vulnerable when exposed to radon. "If you're a smoker and you live in a house with radon, your risk is geometrically higher than just being a smoker without it," says Janice Nolen, assistant vice president for national policy at the American Lung Association. "The two together combine to worsen your risk of developing lung cancer."

A Little Too Airtight

Today's energy-efficient, airtight homes actually pull radon inside and trap it there, says Angel Price, associate director of Cancer Survivors Against Radon. "Your houses suck" is a phrase used in radon-training courses, she says, to illustrate how homes work as vacuums to draw radon in. CanSAR was co-founded by Elizabeth Hoffman, who was diagnosed with radon-induced lung cancer in 2003 and died a decade later. Hoffman became an anti-radon advocate, testifying several times in front of Congress about the dangers of radon and the need for national awareness and action.


Radon Gas can enter your home if many different places. Are you informed about Radon gas levels in the Madison, WI area? Radon Solutions of WI can help.


Each Home Is Different 

The Environmental Protection Agency website includes a map of EPA radon zones, which color-codes counties into zones 1, 2 and 3. The areas in zone 1 have the highest predicted indoor radon screening levels. But the EPA notes that homes with elevated radon levels can be found in all three zones. "The reality is, we do know that high levels can be anywhere," Nolen says. "If you look at that map and go, 'Hmm, I don't live in one the highest-risk zones; I'm not going to worry about it,' you're missing the point. It can be a problem in any home in any neighborhood." Awareness of radon's risk for lung cancer started by looking at miners who had been exposed to uranium, Nolen says. However, it wasn't known that radon was also in homes until the mid-1980s, she says. "The more we learned, the more we know that it is a risk in many, many homes," Nolen says. "It can be in areas where you don't think it's a problem. Your neighbors may have tested and not had a problem. But you test because your situation may be very different, depending on your house." Field agrees: "I've looked at radon readings from every state," he says. "There are homes that have very high radon concentrations, even though the state as a whole may not have a high concentration."

REASONS FOR NEEDING RADON MITIGATION IN WISCONSIN

Wisconsin Radon Mitigation and Testing Facts

The growing knowledge of hazards in a residence are changing how property buyers are looking at residences being thought about for purchase. An analysis is performed to see whether radon mitigation in Wisconsin might be needed. The properties in the state oftentimes do not have a cellar. However, dwellings in northern parts of the state might have a basement which will require an analysis for dangerous gas.



Testing for certain types of gas is necessary to ensure a home is safe. If harmful gas is present, then the home will need a mitigating before any residents can move into the residence. Home buyers often have a gas test performed for a residence. If the test comes back positive, then mitigating may be performed or the health risks may be low and no action will be taken.

Auto Window Tint? We are NOT the cheapest! We are the BEST!

QUIT FALLING FOR THE CHEAP TINT ADS ON FACEBOOK, INSTEAD GET THE QUALITY PRODUCTS AND INSTALLATION YOU AND YOUR VEHICLE DESERVE.




You’ve likely seen a bad tint job before.

Perhaps the tint was bubbling or peeling off the car that passed you, giving it a less-than-desirable look. As is often the case, you get what you pay for — and auto window tinting is no exception. DIY tint kits, which typically cost under $100 and less than professional tinting services, are available to buy online, but applying tint requires precision and skill. “A lot of people lay film down properly on the glass and it looks good at first, but within a year it starts to come off the glass,” says Kyle Bushaw, owner of the Tint Factory in Madison, WI “And secondly, trying to get a hold of the film [can be difficult].”

Cost to tint car windows

There are a number of businesses on across the state of Wisconsin that offer tint services for just about any vehicle. Most places typically charge $25 to $50 per window, but offers discounts for tinting the entire car, which typically takes about two hours for a standard car and longer for larger vehicles. A basic tint for an average-sized car using standard film may cost $99 for the entire vehicle at some places.  However, when looking at these costs are you really getting a professional?  Most shops, especially in Madison are run by someone who is not a professional, who then turns around and hires more help that has no experience. Without referrals, without dealerships, without valuable customers giving them business, they turn to selling CHEAP TINT at CHEAP PRICES with POOR QUALITY and the finished look reflects this and bad things start to happen. The proper way to tint a vehicle is right here at The Tint Factory.  We are using higher quality tint which costs between $199 to $400 for the entire vehicle on average, depending on several factors. That’s the price for heat rejection tints and a quality install. The more heat rejection it has, the price goes up. Prices also vary depending on the type of vehicle, how many windows it has and whether dyed, metalized or ceramic tint is used. We only offer tint that has high heat rejection, and isn’t going to fade.  We then back up our products by the most experienced staff in the State.  

Benefits of window tinting

It’s estimated that window tinting blocks up to 99 percent of UV rays and cools the car down by 60 percent or more, which protects people from the sun and your car’s interior from fading or cracking. A lot of people have their cars tinted because they want to block the heat and some want it for privacy, too. Another benefit to having a professional tint your car is reputable companies should know the law when it comes to local or state regulations regarding tint and how dark windows are allowed to be. States have different laws, and it’s important to check your state’s law before getting your windows tinted. Professionals like Kyle and his staff at The Tint Factory also use higher quality film and guarantee the tint is applied evenly without any bubbles or debris. It’s a skilled labor that’s typically done with a heat gun that contours the film to the glass. There’s a chance someone with less experience can scratch the glass or damage the car’s paint. "The benefits of having a professional installation done primarily is the warranty and secondarily the quality of the installation,” Bushaw says. “Most manufacturers offers a lifetime warranty against color change, bubbling and peeling with proof of purchase from an authorized installer.”

Why You Need A Remote Car Starter & Installation FAQ's

REMOTE CAR STARTER BENEFITS - THE TINT FACTORY OF MADISON


WHY DO YOU NEED A REMOTE CAR STARTER?

What You Need To Know About Remote Car Starters

The snowy terrain and freezing temperatures have finally arrived in Madison Wisconsin– and from the looks of it, the winter weather is here to stay. For most of you, that means cold mornings and even colder drives to and from work. A remote car starter from The Tint Factory will make your commutes easier on you and your vehicle this winter. Here are a few reasons why:

Comfortable Drive

Who wants to sit in a freezing cold car after it has spent the night outside in freezing cold temperatures, or in the parking lot all day at your office, or during your workout at the gym? Using a remote car starter allows the inside of your car to heat up before you have to get in and drive it, creating a more comfortable ride for both you and your passengers.

Safer Commute

A warm car can make for a safer commute. The heat from the car melts the ice on the windshield as well as the windows, making it easier to scrape away, tremendously increasing your visibility. A warm car also melts any snow and ice that may be covering your headlights and brake lights, so you can be better seen by other drivers.


Warm Engine & Motor Oil

Cold temperatures effect your car’s engine and its motor oil. Running cold is harder on an engine than running warm, and because oil is thicker when it is cold, it is more difficult for it to flow through the engine’s parts. A remote start gives your vehicle extra time to reach normal operating temperature, warming the engine and making the oil more viscous, allowing it to flow freely through the engine.

Although there is no doubt a remote start will make your drive warm and comfortable, the accessory is not for everyone. Idling your vehicle can have negative effects, as well.

Unnecessary Waste

It is important to only let your car idle for a short amount of time. When a car idles for more than 30 seconds, it increases air pollution, wastes both fuel and money, and can cause excessive wear on the engine.

Motor Oil Type

Instead of heating the oil in your car by idling, you can replace it with an oil that can better withstand cold weather. Refer to your owner’s manual to select the proper viscosity oil for the winter temperatures.

Vehicle’s Make & Model

Particular idling practices may depend on your car, its make, and its age. Idling wears on older cars much more than newer vehicles, but older cars may need it more than newer ones. Again, consult your owner’s manual to see what, if anything, it says about idling.

In the end, a remote start is about personal preference. Not only is it convenient, but it is a good investment as well. In addition to getting good use out of a remote start in the winter, you can use it in the warmer months to cool your car down before driving it. Does a remote car starter sound like it might be for you? Purchase yours today at The Tint Factory of Madison!

PicoSure Laser Hair & Tattoo Removal Now Available in Naperville, Illinois

LASER HAIR & TATTOO REMOVAL COMES TO NAPERVILLE, AURORA, CHICAGO


For Immediate Release

Solutions Laser Studio Now Offers Advanced Aesthetic Laser Treatments


Cynosure Inc. Premieres PicoSure with Solutions Laser Studio

Plainfield, IL & Chicago, IL December 12th, 2015 – Solutions Laser Studio now offers PicoSure, the world’s first and only picosecond aesthetic laser for multiple aesthetic applications including tattoo removal, acne scar treatment, removal of pigmented lesions and wrinkle treatment. This unparalleled breakthrough in laser technology delivers ultra-short pulse bursts of energy to the treated area in trillionths of a second.


This unprecedented advancement in laser technology erases tattoos with fewer treatments and better results. Even tattoos that have been treated previously but failed to clear can be removed. PicoSure’s ultra-short pulse duration goes beyond photothermal action creating an intense photomechanical impact, resulting in greater disruption of the target for better clearance with fewer treatments.

“This is an opportunity to treat unwanted tattoos more efficiently with far less recovery time” states Jeff Kohl, Owner of Solutions Laser Studio. “After evaluating the treatment and clinical studies, there’s no question that PicoSure’s innovative technology provides us with the most advanced tattoo removal treatment on the market.

If it’s a more youthful appearance you’re looking for, the PicoSure laser also offers a quick and easy non-surgical, non-invasive option that provides impressive results without the typical discomfort and downtime of traditional laser skin treatments. Unlike lasers in the past that relied on intense heat energy which may have caused pain and led to significant skin redness and downtime, PicoSure’s gentler treatment offers a unique combination of leading-edge technologies. Our light-based treatment targets all three layers of photodamaged tissue, epidermal pigment and mid-dermal wrinkles.

“We’re excited to offer this new laser treatment to our patients for treating acne scars, wrinkles, and removing unwanted pigment in fewer treatments. The results are impressive and patients are satisfied with the treatment experience.”
