Are you looking at buying a new home, but it’s near power lines, or perhaps it’s near a cell tower that looks like it might be too close?
Find out if it’s safe or not. Contact us for a pre-purchase EMF inspection.
We can test for potential issues, provide details on possible solutions, or simply provide peace of mind before making that real estate purchase.
Why have an EMF Inspection before you buy a home or condo?
Our pre-purchase EMF inspections are tailor made for you. We will identify potential issues that may be caused by radiation from power lines or cell towers. Consider your family’s health. This makes good sense!
In addition, less obvious sources of EMF might exist in the residence you’re considering purchasing. Electrical wiring issues can cause “dirty electricity.” We measure for that as well. Sometimes these wiring issues can cause higher levels of radiation than the power lines. The good news is, these wiring issues can be easily corrected with filtering options.
We look forward to serving you with our full EMF inspection services. Montreal is a great place to live. Let’s ensure you’re safe!
There are a lot of products out there that claim to do wonders against RF radiation, such as what emits from nearby cell towers. Buyer beware! Not all products with big claims measure up.
We work with Geovital Academy for Radiation Protection and Environmental Medicine, based in Austria. The academy has been working with tens of thousands of health clients for 35 years. They understand radiation protection! And happily, they’ve developed their own shielding products over the years, culminating in the finest solutions available.
Let’s talk about shielding solutions for your home. Don’t be fooled by inferior products available all over the Internet. Geovital shielding is your best option. Third party tests have shown our products to be up to 400% more effective, even for products that claim more than 99% reduction in EMF.
Following is a simplified explanation on how to protect your home. Because optimal shielding products carry a premium price tag, it is usually advisable to keep your budget in line by shielding just the bedroom(s), where your body needs it the most, while it is sleeping …
Geovital NOVA Shielding Fabric (variety of deployments, mainly as curtains)
Five surfaces are painted with T-98 paint. This includes the four walls and the ceiling. Grounding tape is put in place between two coats of the paint. The mesh usually goes on the floor, and the NOVA fabric becomes the curtains.
Proper application of T-98 produces a shielding effectiveness of 99.999%. When deployed with the other materials mentioned above, your overall results will likely be a perfect or nearly perfect benign environment, safe from RF/HF radiation.

We love our Swannies. You can get the daytime version (clear), or the night time version (orange shade). Many styles available with size options.
Electrical poles and high voltage transmission power lines are part of life. But let’s look a little closer. Are you considering buying a home near power lines?
What is a safe distance from power lines?
Studies have indicated that living close to high voltage power lines & power transmission networks can cause cancer and a host of other health issues.
We’re EMF inspectors. We get a lot of questions about whether it’s safe to buy a home near high voltage power lines. How far away must you be to be safe?

You should be concerned about living near or buying a home near power lines. The risks to health are far too great, particularly for children. Be concerned if the power lines are closer than 800 meters. We’ve been called upon countless times to measure the electrical and magnetic readings near power lines. Results vary, but a good rule of thumb is that the zone for potential concern is for homes less than 800 meters in distance. Testing results vary. Within that range, you might still have a viable home-purchase option. The only way to know for sure is to test the readings with a good EMF meter such as the ME 3030b. You should have magnetic readings below 0.75 mG and electric readings less than 5 V/m in our professional opinion. It should be understood that there are many nuances to doing the measurements properly and understanding the complexities of the big picture. It might be best to have a professional come out to do the readings or buy the 3030b meter we mention above and engage us to do a remote inspection for you by telephone. Then you can know for sure.
Professor Henshaw, a physicist with the University of Bristol, found that if a person spent 10 per cent of his time close to power lines, he would be subjected to up to twice the acceptable level of radioactivity. His study linked power lines to leukaemia. Henshaw says they also cause skin cancer, lung cancer, depression and 60 suicides a year.
In other research from Oxford University, it was discovered that children who had lived within 200 meters of high voltage lines at birth had a 70% higher risk of leukaemia than those 600 meters or more away.
So, what is a safe distance from power lines? Have us come and measure the magnetic and electrical radiation near the power lines you’re concerned about.
We are available to measure harmful EMF radiation near power lines and do EMF home inspections in Toronto, Richmond Hill, Markham, Burlington, Hamilton, Kitchener, Ontario, the GTA, and surrounding areas.
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:
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.
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.
“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.
