High voltage power lines. What distance is harmful?

Looks like a dream home. Just one problem.  It’s right near power lines. You can almost hear crackling electricity when you are in the back yard.  You have young children and are worried if it is safe.  And you’ve read articles that say this could be a problem.

Well, you are right to be concerned. There is an increasing body research and studies that show there could potentially be serious harm to one’s health, especially children. Without accurate measurements to be sure, stay more than 800 meters away from powerlines. Closer than that, please contact us, and we can come out and do an inspection for you. It may still be safe. Only one way to know for sure. Our measurements will tell you whether it is safe or not.

Cancer research body declares RF radiation from cell phones and towers dangerous

The Dangers of Cell Phones and Cell Towers

The International Association for Research on Cancer (IARC) has declared radio frequency radiation to be a possible cause of cancer. Watch the press conference on radio frequency radiation emitted by cell phones and cell towers and decide for yourself whether you should take prudent action or not.

If you use cellular phones excessively or live near a cell tower, this is for you.

Watch video here

Are you considering the purchase of a home near a cell tower or power lines? Do you live near a tower? The question then becomes, “what distance is safe?” The answer varies since it is affected by several factors. If the tower is less than 1 kilometre away, it’s best to have it tested by a qualified professional with a suitable meter.

Call or email us for an EMF inspection. On the spot evaluation on whether it is safe or not.

So how serious is EMF radiation to our health anyway?

emf_spectrum

Good question.  We live in a wireless world, and it gets more so every day. Wireless technology (whether cell phones, wifi, cordless phones, Blu-tooth, etc) produces high levels of EMF. Hate to burst your bubble, but wires can also produce EMF if they have high voltage electricity running through them. But should we care?

The simple answer is “yes.” We should care because, like it or not, our health is being affected. We may not die tomorrow, but the World Health Organization and leading tech-savvy governments and independent authorities around the world indicate strong concerns based on recent studies. Check out this helpful article by the respected Prevention Magazine.

So how can I know if my environment is bombarded with unsafe electromagnetic fields? Give us a call or drop us an email. We’re here to help. We do EMF inspections, both locally and remotely. If you live on planet Earth, we can measure your environment and give you the honest goods on how bad it is and what you can do about it.

We measure for the 3 types of electromagnetic radiation that can cause health problems. Using professional EMF meters, we can tell you whether your property is safe or not and what can be done about it.

EMF Inspection – EMF Testing in Ottawa:

– Residential Properties
– Commercial Properties
– Schools, Colleges, and Universities

Significant recent research has prompted the establishment of increasingly prudent standards for EMF exposure. According to the California EMF Program, EMFs can cause some degree of increased risk of childhood leukemia, adult brain cancer, Lou Gehrig Disease, and miscarriage. Sadly, most of Health Canada’s research is more than 60 years out of date!
(Source: CA EMF Program)

We test the entire house from an electromagnetic standpoint. We use professional meters and measuring devices to find out where the “hot spots” are.

Our team has hundreds of hours of research, and is continually taking courses and training to stay informed on the latest in EMF knowledge.

If you are concerned about overhead power lines, mobile phone masts or about the invisible EMFs of electronic devices, then is for you. We identify electromagnetic fields, radio frequencies, and dirty electricity. And we offer assistance in fixing or reducing the trouble spots.

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 may recommend is the installation of Graham-Stetzer filters in your place. They filter out much of the dangerous high frequency energy. We’re getting reports of health changing results from our clients.

We measure for:

  1. Harmful magnetic frequencies
  2. Harmful electrical frequencies
  3. Dirty electricity
  4. Harmful radio frequencies

The cost of a survey depends on the complexity of the situation and size of property. Based in Toronto, we schedule our Ottawa work to be performed 2 to 3 times per month, so our Ottawa clients get our “local rate.”

EMF inspections start from as little as $249 for pre-purchase and $369 for full surveys, and neighbouring properties may be able to share the cost of a survey.

Electromagnetic Field Inspections (EMF/EMR)

Getting back to a healthier life through Electromagnetic Field Inspections (EMF/EMR)

Headache or other disturbance keeping you up at night? Suffering fatigue, muscle tension or digestive issues?

More and more people are sensitive to electricity and have difficulty sleeping, get headaches, ringing in the ears, digestive problems or experience other symptoms from electrosmog. We help our customers create a healthy living space by reducing artificial electromagnetic fields (EMFs).

Symptoms of electromagnetic sensitivity can reduce your productivity and enjoyment of life. Electromagnetic radiation is invisible. Our EMF meters and other testing equipment helps find the sources. Then we go to work for you on mitigation techniques. Trying to do this yourself can do more harm than good.

Understanding EMF levels in the home or office. This chart explains guidelines in simple detail.

Professional consulting and testing provides you with an accurate picture and peace of mind. We also provide a useful list of EMF reduction strategies that are no cost (for example, turning your cell phone and Wi-Fi off at night). In some situations, additional mitigation may be required to accomplish an optimally healthy home (or office).

Our Housecheck consultants have put in the research and the training. We have the right equipment, and protocols (Building Biology Institute, Germany).

Electromagnetic Field (EMF/EMR) Success Story

A lot of our customers say they sleep better and have less muscle tension after our EMF inspection and mitigation. One couple with electromagnetic sensitivity was considering the purchase of a dream home north of Toronto. But our inspection of the potential new residence identified it as unsuitable due to high magnetic readings. We asked the couple to work with their real estate agent to find 2 or 3 alternate homes that would also suit them. We came back two days later and tested 2 more homes. One was marginally okay, the other some of the lowest readings we had every seen. They now live in that home, and with our guidance on how to use their computer equipment, electronics, cell phones, and wifi, they’re living comfortably in their dream home.

If you’re concerned about overhead power lines, mobile phone masts or about the invisible EMFs of your electrical appliances, then this may be 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’ll 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 may recommend is the installation of Graham-Stetzer filters in your residence or office. They filter out much of the dangerous high frequency energy. There are health changing results for our clients.

Using a custom-developed methodology based on leading EMF scientists’ and experts’ input, we can find and remediate much of the harmful EMF energy in your building, thus reducing health risks.

EMF protection is a science and a bit of an art

In the process of the EMF Home Inspection, we will measure for *:

  • Harmful magnetic frequencies
  • Harmful electrical frequencies
  • Harmful radio frequencies

Note: Many homes we test give readings that are of serious concern. This is why you should consider a home inspection.

Once we’ve measured the AC Magnetic, AC Electric, and Radio Frequency (RF) field strengths in your home or office we’ll assist in the process of remediation. Full report, and recommendations are provided.

One essential aspect of fixing the problem is almost always the installation of DIRTY ELECTRICITY FILTERS. These affordable units absorb the harmful effects of your wiring (more below).

Other Concerns

Nearby high-voltage lines, power lines and transformers are often of concern. We measure for high levels and recommend a course of action. Inside your home, we measure readings from computers, monitors, appliances and power cords. These can also produce strong EMFs. We show you how to reduce the risks to yourself and your family.

RF frequencies come from cell phones, cordless phones, wifi and cell towers. We measure and report findings and recommendations for each of these.

Dirty Electricity (electro-smog) – We use a special meter to measure for high frequency “Dirty Electricity” in your home’s electrical wiring. Dirty electricity can be caused by poor installation techniques and the growing use of electrical devices and appliances.

There’s more:

  • dimmer switches
  • treadmills
  • TVs & entertainment systems
  • energy-efficient lighting
  • Dirty Electricity radiates a meter or two into a room, even when power is off.

A complete EMF Consultation

We supply you with the most useful scientific data concerning EMFs after the home inspection. We call this the educational part of the visit. We show you how EMFs are generated, how they affect your health and provide tips on minimizing exposure.

A Complete EMF Report

We provide a comprehensive report with readings throughout your home. The report includes a wealth of suggestions on EMF avoidance, and an up-to-date list of links to studies and reports. Other corrective measures might be required. Electricians or other contractors may be needed to deal with some issues.

One of our EMF testing devices – the Trifield 100XE EMF meter

Trifield 100XE EMF Meter

One of the meters we use in our EMF home and office inspections is the exceptional Trifield meter. It measures the three main types of electromagnetic pollution: AC magnetic fields, AC electric fields, and radio/microwaves.514OHKWTWaL.01_SL500_

  • AC magnetic and electric fields are 3-axis, allowing quick accurate readings regardless of meter orientation.
  • Two magnetic ranges detect 0.2-100 milligauss. This meter is calibrated for 60Hz
  • The Trifield is sensitive enough to detect background fields in most situations and can measure up to very strong AC fields
  • The Radio/microwave spectrum covers 10 to 1000 microwatts/square cm

However, the Trifield meter is best suited for magnetic measurements, not for electric and radio frequencies, because its range is limited for those fields. We use two or three other meters to assist us in determining an accurate map of electromagnetic issues in a home or office we’ve been invited to inspect.

You can buy the Trifield meter at Amazon (landed cost in Canada is about $200 to $225) if you’d like your own unit, or you can ask us to bring our complete inventory of testing equipment to do a professional job and to give you the full benefit of our thousands of hours of testing and mitigation experience plus our comprehensive 8 page report. The complete package ranges from $200 to $350.

We use a full range of EMF meters to track EMFs to their source. We will give you a verbal summary of our findings on the spot. Then we’ll provide the results of the inspection 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 might recommend is the installation of Graham-Stetzer filters in your space. They filter out much of the dangerous high frequency energy. We’re getting reports of health changing results from our clients.

How close can I live to power lines and still be safe? Distance from power lines and harmful EMF radiation

High voltage power lines. Safe distance?

Power Lines: what distance is safe

Updated May 4, 2017

As EMF consultants & inspectors, we get a lot of questions about the safety of buying a home near high voltage power lines. What distance is safe? How close do you have to be for it to be harmful to your health?

The simple answer is: “don’t buy a home near power lines.” The health risks are far too great, particularly for children. You should start to be concerned if the power lines are closer than 500 metres. I have 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 ranges from 150 to 500 metres. Less than that, forget it! But 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.

Pertinent Research

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.*

The best way to be sure about a healthy distance from power lines is to have us come out and measure the electrical and magnetic fields near the power lines you’re concerned about.

We measure harmful EMF radiation near power lines and do EMF home inspections in Toronto Ontario and surrounding area.
