Energy-Efficient Radon Fan

Fantech’s Rn2 EC Radon Fan offers increased energy efficiency, lifespan while lowering noise and vibration.

Fantech introduced the first EC (electronically commutated) fan for the radon industry more than two years ago and is now expanding its EC lineup with the Rn2 EC.

The EC motor is a breakthrough technology that makes installers’ jobs more efficient by allowing them to easily dial up or
dial down fan speed to reach the precise and optimal fan performance for each unique home installation.
Odorless, colorless, and tasteless, radon comes from the natural decay of uranium, which is present in soil, rock, and
water and infiltrates the air in homes and buildings. Radon is responsible for an estimated 15,000 to 22,000 deaths in the
U.S. each year, according to the American Cancer Institute.

Soil densities vary from house to house, even within the same neighborhood, and different soils require fans with different
flows and pressures. The versatility and flexibility that the Rn 2 EC’s motor provides means mitigators can accommodate
more installations with just one unit, rather than stocking multiple fan models to meet the needs of each application,
delivering tremendous flexibility and the resulting return on investment. The ability to precisely adjust fan performance and
optimize mitigation means the fan motor will not work harder than needed, which increases the fan’s energy efficiency and
lifespan while lowering noise and vibration.

“As the second leading cause of lung cancer, radon remains an invisible yet deadly threat to many Americans, and
Fantech’s lineup of radon fans has been a crucial defense against this silent killer,” says Crystal Lytle, Radon Sales
Manager at Fantech. “The new Rn2 EC fan is a game-changer, elevating our most popular, mainstay fan with optimization
the squeezes every ounce of efficiency, streamlines specification for installers, and takes radon mitigation to the next

With its optimization capabilities, the Rn2 EC meets the needs of not only medium-air-flow, low-suction applications but
also low-air-flow, low-suction applications.
