Trifield EMF Meter
Trifield EMF Meter

In order to properly test for  electromagnetic fields (EMFs), you need a test meter to do the job. Actually, you need 2 or 3 of them. There are three types of EMF you need to measure:

Magnetic fields

This type of radiation is the one that’s linked to serious health effects most often. For example the connection that research has shown between power lines and childhood leukemia. Magnetic fields radiate from power lines, building wiring, lights, appliances — that is, things that are powered by electricity. For this, we measure in units called milligauss (mG). Our meter of choice for this type of EMF is the Trifield Meter Model 100XE. It is a proven leader for magnetic field testing. It is extremely sensitive and accurate. It measures down to 0.2 mG. Note: you want to see below 2 mG and ideally below 1 mG to avoid health problems. 0.5 and below are even better.

Electric fields

These are responsible for the other half of the electro-magnetic equation and also radiate from power lines, wiring, lights, appliances, etc. Electric fields can also affect optimal health in humans and animals. We measure them in units of volts (V), or volts per meter (V/M). For this type of EMF, we use the ESI 24 EMF meter, made in Germany. It tests for all 3 types of EMF fields, so we use it to corroborate our other meters’ readings, and rely on it heavily for the electric and RF readings.

A note about electrosmog: also known as electrical pollution or dirty electricity, we use the STETZERiZER® Microsurge Meter by Graham-Stetzer, which is designed to separate the power line frequency to detect and respond to low level high frequency voltages caused by transients and harmonics on power lines. This meter is plugged into wall outlets one by one to determine where dirty electricity exists. STETZERiZER® filters are installed in the outlets with the highest readings.

Radio frequency

“RF” for short, these are also referred to as High frequency. This includes microwaves coming from cell towers, cellular phones, microwave ovens,  TV, radio towers, cordless phones, WiFi, and electronic devices. RF is usually measured in units of microwatts per centimeter squared (μW/cm²).  For this type of EMF, we use the ESI 24 EMF meter.

What We Do

We can come to your home or office to do an EMF inspection. We use each of the meters described above when we test for harmful EMF fields. We can also rent these meters to you for subsequent needs. Studies are emerging that indicate EMF-caused damage to human tissue, cellular structure and the nervous system. We’re here to help you measure, identify and reduce the potential harms of electromagnetic fields.

We sell and install Stetzer filters and do EMF home inspections in Toronto Ontario and surrounding area.
