Fantech’s Rn2 EC Radon Fan Offers Increased Energy Efficiency, Lifespan While Lowering Noise and Vibration
Fantech, a pioneer in radon-mitigation solutions, 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 level.”
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.
The Rn2 EC can be specified with the radon-specific LDVI (Low-Durometer Vibration-Isolating) couplings. Designed specifically for radon-mitigation applications, the couplings are molded with a softer, more flexible material than standard plumbing couplings, easing installation while providing superior vibration isolation to dramatically reduce noise. LDVI couplings are designed to work with both 3” and 4” PVC pipe connections and can be used to enhance the performance of any radon fan on the market.

For more than three decades, Fantech has been focused on being a leader in the air movement industry, researching, designing, and bringing to market
ventilation solutions that ensure better indoor air quality in the buildings where we work and live. Fantech’s 115 product families include in-line fans for
bathroom exhaust, dryer boosting, and radon mitigation; indoor air quality equipment such as heat and energy recovery ventilators and whole-house
HEPA filtration; and larger CFM fans for commercial applications such as in-line centrifugal fans, exterior-mounted centrifugal fans for wall and roof,
multi-port centrifugal fans, and air curtains. Products are available through 3,600 distributing locations in the U.S. and Canada, with 48-hour shipment for select products. Fantech’s strength and stability come from its alliance with Swedish parent company Systemair. With a global network of 58 subsidiaries on four continents, Systemair Group is one of the largest air movement companies in the world.
