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.

Would you like us to measure the EMF radiation coming from power lines near your home or pre-purchase? Contact us here or call / text us at 905-719-7030

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.

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.”

How to shield against cell towers and other RF radiation. EMF shielding solutions!

EMF / RF / Shielding Solutions for your Home

Updated January 9, 2020

rfshieldgraphic

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 …

Shielding Products

  1. Geovital T-98 Shielding Paint (with grounding tape)
  2. GPA Shielding Mesh (for floors)
  3. Geovital NOVA Shielding Fabric (variety of deployments, mainly as curtains)

Installation

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.

Results

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.

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.

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.
