Using EMF meters to measure EMF levels in your home or office

Which EMF meter?

As EMF inspectors, we get a lot of questions about which meters people should buy to test their home or office. Unfortunately, there are no affordable consumer meters that are accurate enough to give you a useful reading. RFMeterThe best solution is simply to have a professional inspector come to you and do the measurements with professional meters that are calibrated and certified to be accurate. We’ve spent thousands of dollars on our meters and we’re happy to come to your place of residence or work to perform the testing. You’ll benefit by 100% accurate readings. Even that $150 model a lot of people buy from Amazon only covers one of the 3 EMF types you need to test, and in the higher ranges, it is often as much as 80% off in accuracy!

Here are a few additional things to think about when contemplating doing your own measurements:

  1. How to use the meter. They need to be held a certain way, and depending on the type, may need to be pointed in different directions. Then with several readings per location, what do you do with the numbers? Average them? Use the highest number?
  2. What do the numbers mean? They have to be compared with authoritative guidelines by trusted authorities. Which authorities do you trust? The Canadian or US government? No. Think again. Canada has outdated guidelines and the US has no guidelines at all. You have to go elsewhere for the best information.
  3. What are the remediation options? It’s a jungle of products out there. Which ones are effective?

In contrast, by working with a professional EMF inspector, you get:

  • Top of the line accurate EMF meters
  • The meters will be used properly
  • The results will be compared to the best guidelines
  • The benefit of years of experience with the most effective remediation options, such as filters, shielding, etc.

Notes:

You need at least 3 meters to do a proper job. The minimum cost for 3 useful meters would work out like this: 1 meter for magnetic and electric fields (5 hertz to 100,000 hertz) $500.00; 1 meter for radio frequencies with an extended frequency range of 200 MHz to 8.0 GHz minimum $480.00; 1 power line frequency tester $140.  Total: $1,120.00Prices in Canadian funds. These are very good meters. We’ll likely call upon even better ones, and have several additional meters available, should the situation warrant them.

Electromagnetic Field (EMF) Testing for your home, pre-purchase, or workplace. Toronto and GTA inspectors.

We perform EMF measurements, home or office testing and assessments for a wide range of customers, both residential and commercial.

meter_generic2There is growing proof that exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF) cause health problems. The human brain, blood, and breast are the most succeptible to sickness due to harmful EMF radiation.

We do EMF related testing and measurement in the Toronto and Greater Toronto area (GTA). We also schedule appointments farther afield, including Southwestern Ontario and Northern Ontario. UPDATE: We can now make arrangements right across Canada.

Be sure you know the levels of EMF radiation in your existing home, a home you’re planning to purchase, or in your workplace.

We also offer protection from exposure to high frequency, electrical and magnetic fields by various means of mitigation, including Stetzerizer filters. Two additional areas of concern are cellular and wireless (WiFi). During our visit to your site, we conduct a mini-education session on the whole topic of EMF and on the safest ways to use mobile technologies.

Following are some of the ways your home or office may be gradually making you sick:

  • proximity to high voltage power lines
  • proximity to cell phone towers
  • household wiring and poor grounding
  • appliances
  • lamps and clock radios
  • lighting
  • cordless phones
  • Wi-Fi
  • cellular phones
  • dimmer switches
  • computers
  • home entertainment systems and TV


The following process of EMF Home Inspection covers all of the above and more.

We measure for:

  1. Harmful magnetic frequencies
  2. Harmful electrical frequencies
  3. Harmful radio frequencies

Source: Building Biology Institute, Germany

A complete EMF Consultation

We give you down-to-earth useful data concerning EMFs after the home survey. This is the educational part of the visit. The inspector shows how EMFs are produced, how they can impact your health and gives you tips on reducing exposure.

A Complete EMF Report

Your inspector gives you a complete report with readings throughout your home (or office). This includes tips on avoiding EMF exposure, and a reference list of studies and reports.

Residential EMF inspector and consultant in Toronto, Ontario. We do EMF inspections.

EMF Radiation Detection and Prevention Services

Updated July 27, 2018

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) emanating 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.

Testing for EMF radiation before you purchase a new home or for your existing home. What you need to know.

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.

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.”
