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

What We Test For
Our EMF inspectors measure* for the following frequencies:
Radio Frequency / High Frequency
And we’re specialists in testing homes and offices for EMF near high voltage power lines.We always give practical remediation advice to clean up your home (or office) from harmful electromagnetic fields.
How we Fix the Problems we may find (Remediation)
Types of solutions (selected highlights):
Changing room configurations, especially of your bedroom, to allow better sleep (candidates include clock radio, position of bed, etc.).
Possible installation of Stetzerizer dirty electricity filters by Graham Stetzer.
Safer use of cell phones and electronic devices/equipment.

He’s engaged in hundreds of hours of research and professional development in the field, and will be pleased to arrange an inspection expressly for you.
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. The 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:
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?
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.
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.
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: $1,120.00. Prices 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.
Invitation for a Professional EMF Inspection
