How close is too close when living near transmission power lines

People are often concerned when considering the purchase of a home near high voltage power lines. Could they be bad for our health?

IMG_1334

If you’re looking to purchase a home near high voltage power lines, you might ask yourself:

“What is the safe distance for living near high voltage power lines? How close is too close?”

You can’t be certain without doing an actual measurement with highly accurate meters. According to most trustworthy safety guidelines, you want levels BELOW 1 mG in the home and below that in bedrooms. You can do this yourself initially Here’s a good meter for this: ME 3030b available here. You may be shocked to find out how many homes are affected by this and that many of those homes are nowhere near those ‘big’ high voltage power lines.

Once you find a home where the values are under the 1 mG and ideally under about 0.75 mG in bedrooms, it seems to be giving you the ‘green light’. The smart thing to do, is to then get a professional to do a pre-purchase inspection and reconfirm your good findings before buying or renting a property. Just like you wouldn’t think twice about ordering a structural building inspection before buying a home.

We do EMF inspections in Toronto, Chicago, and all surrounding areas. We also have a network of inspectors across both Canada and the U.S.

EMF Testing services in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), Hamilton, Burlington, Oakville, and beyond

Updated January 17, 2020

EMF testing and inspections

EMF Home Inspections offers a wide range of testing services to detect EMF and EMI. Our professional research into Building Biology and Geobiology has brought us to the forefront of the field. Our inspectors are trained and certified by GEOVITAL Academy, the world’s leader in radiation detection and protection.

We use professional meters from Geovital Academy to measure electromagnetic frequencies. We also use selected Gigahertz meters. Testing is done in magnetic, electrical and radio frequencies.

EMF testing is available for residential homes and your place of work. Our EMF measurements are taken at strategic points throughout the home or office. Based on the information we gather, we can then implement solutions that will protect you, should they be required.

Contact: Paul Singer at (905) 719-7030 or Email Us

Residential or Commercial EMF Testing

Our methodology for residential customers is to use our EMF meters to measure your home or workplace top to bottom with particular focus on the sleeping areas and areas you spend a lot of time in.

We test for harmful effects from:

  • high voltage power lines
  • proximity to cell phone towers
  • transformers
  • household wiring and poor grounding
  • appliances
  • lamps and clock radios
  • lighting
  • household wiring
  • dirty electricity
  • stray currents on gas and water pipes
  • cordless phones
  • Wi-Fi
  • cellular phones
  • dimmer switches
  • computers
  • home entertainment systems & TV

The Equipment We Use:

We have professional grade meters for MAGNETIC and ELECTRIC Fields, and others for high frequency RF. We’ve steadily upgraded our meters over the years, spending thousands of dollars in the process. Geovital Field Probes are our most important meters, as they measure how your body reacts to the EMFs in your environment, something that regular meters can’t do.

For DIRTY ELECTRICITY, we use Greenwave’s Broadband EMI Meter, which is highly advanced. This meter 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.

An important part of our onsite visit is to give you a brief overview of EMF and help you understand how your readings compare against the most trusted safety guidelines. A full written report is also provide.

EMFMeter-ME3851A-L (1)

We do EMF inspections and testing in the Toronto area. This includes the surrounding GTA such as Mississauga, Oakville, Burlington, Richmond Hill, …

When you are thinking of buying a home, give us a call. Or if you’re concerned about your current residence, give us a call. We’ll measure the EMF radiation and help you make a good decision on what to do about it.

To make an appointment with one of our EMF consultants please email Paul or call / text him at 905-719-7030.

Note, in addition to the Gigahertz meter pictured above, we use Geovital field probes, the most advanced meters in the business.

If you have health concerns about nearby power lines, cell phone towers or about the invisible EMFs in your home, then this is for you. Employers may wish to evaluate employee workspaces for Health and Safety purposes. We will identify electromagnetic fields, radio frequencies, and dirty electricity. We use professional EMF meters to track EMFs to their source. First we will give you a verbal summary of our findings. Then we’ll provide the results of the survey in a written report. It will show the location and intensity of EMFs within the property and give practical steps on how they can be eliminated or avoided at minimal cost. One of the solutions we will recommend is the installation of Greenwave dirty electricity filters. They filter out much of the dangerous high frequency energy. We’re getting reports of health changing results from our clients.

Our consultants inspect houses, apartments, townhouses, and condominiums.

The typical inspection includes examinations of the entire dwelling from an electromagnetic standpoint. We use professional meters and measuring devices to find out where the “hot spots” are.

We engage in considerable research, and take training courses to keep up on the latest in EMF information.

The cost of a survey depends on the complexity of the situation, size of property and distance from our office in the GTA. Note, we view the GTA (Greater Toronto area) as “local.”

EMF Radiation Detection and Prevention Services

EMF Inspectors to test your home’s EMF levels.
emf waves

Electromagnetic field radiation detection and protection are my specialty. Have your home inspected for harmful EMF. My consulting services include testing for high levels of EMF in homes near power line fields and for RF (Radio Frequencies) radiating from nearby cell towers, smart meters, etc.

EMF Survey & Measurement Services

Available for both residential and commercial clients. Once I’ve tested the home, I provide an immediate written report and help you understand the findings. I then go over the remediation options that apply to your situation.

I am trained for radiation detection and remediation by the GEOVITAL Academy in Austria. For over 30 years they’ve focussed with great intensity on the cause and effect relationship between radiation exposure and its effects on health. Environmental influences can affect the regeneration of the body and thereby its ability to fight disease. By treating thousands of patients, the Academy has developed their own technology and approach. They teach their consultants how to detect and address the causes, not the symptoms!

RF (Radio Frequency Exposure) Scans and Evaluations

I test RF emissions for intensity in order to determine sources and help with remediation solutions according to the guidelines as determined by the GEOVITAL Academy.

Magnetic / Electric / RF & EMF Shielding Consultations

If you are concerned about possible excessive electromagnetic energy, I am fully qualified to assess, troubleshoot and make sound recommendations to fix or mitigate the situation.

Electrical Wiring Issues from excessive EMF Fields

One of the most common sources of high EMF fields inside the home is improper wiring. I can detect these problems and either assist in fixing the wiring or installing dirty electricity filters that absorb the excessive radiation.

Preliminary Construction Surveys and Pre-Purchase Scenarios

I’m frequently called out to construction sites before a structure is built. I can make construction recommendations for minimizing electromagnetic field emissions for safety and electromagnetic interference concerns.

Another common request is to measure the EMF intensity in potential new homes, apartments, or condos. The team and I check for the potential impact of nearby powerlines, substations, transformers, cell towers and other EMF/RF generating sources.

How to find the best EMF inspector in Toronto and area. What makes them the best qualified?

Finding the Best EMF Inspector

towerwavesgraphic

EMF home inspectors are not all the same. In this unregulated industry, you will do well to have a checklist of what to look for in an EMF professional.

 

Whether you need a pre-purchase home tested or have concerns about your existing home, here are the things to look for in your inspector:

  1. Accurate EMF meters: meters should measure for all 4 types of harmful EMF, and be calibrated.
  2. Who to Trust on What is Safe or Not? The inspector should tell you which authority(ies) they trust for the best safety guidelines. Note, the Canadian or US government do not have the best research.
  3. Are They Going to Try to Force You to Buy Filters? Some inspectors will not come to your home unless you commit to buying filters in advance. We don’t think that’s right. You should have a choice.
  4. Personal Style: Is the personal style of the inspector friendly, empathetic, helpful? Do they seem like they have extremist or balanced views on the topic and wireless lifestyle choices?
  5. On-the-Spot Assessment: Are they willing to give you the verdict on “safe or not” at the time of inspection or do you have to wait for their report?
  6. Remediation Advice: What types of solutions do they have available, should your home have some issues? There should usually (but not always) be quite a few options. Sometimes it takes creativity to apply scientific solutions!
  7. Prompt Written Report: Can they promise to supply you with a comprehensive written report within a reasonable period of time (24 to 48 hours is reasonable).
  8. Will They Allow Follow Up Calls and Emails if You Have Questions? This is a must and a proper courtesy.

EMFs (electromagnetic frequencies) are invisible energy, that on certain frequencies, make us sick. Scientific research links EMFs with health problems. Health problems can be range from nervousness and digestive issues to leukaemia. And a growing percentage of the population are discovering they have a condition called “Electrical Hypersensitivity” (EHS), an allergic-like reaction to exposure to EMF.

We are being btowerwavesgraphicathed in a steady increase in EMF exposure. Additional reactions to EMF exposure include problems sleeping, nervous system disorders, chronic disease (see “autism” here), fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, depression, anxiety, and headaches. 

And yet, the Canadian government is 60 years behind in research and health guidelines when it comes to harmful EMF.

Our team at EMF Home Inspections has put in hundreds of hours of research and study on this topic.
