Low Frequency EMF Survey

We provide a FREE EMF consultation and our team of highly qualified EMF safety consultants is available to you seven days a week. We love what we do here at EMF testing Ltd and will guide you through the process, answer any questions you may have before the EMF test is conducted, and make sure you have a good understanding of the EMF environment in your home once the EMF test is complete. Our door is always open and we are happy to have chat even if you are simply just interested in learning more about EMF and its impact on our bodies.

The EMF levels are changing every second, so to provide the most accurate readings, we take several readings in each room and any outdoor areas that belong to the property over a certain period of time.

In the EMF safety evaluation report report, you will see all readings taken in each room and the average value, and how the highest recorded reading compares to the international guidelines. We will also advise how the results compare to the SAGE biological guidelines (this provides much stricter reference levels than ICNIRP, adopted by the UK government).

Low frequency (LF) or extremely low frequency (ELF) electric and magnetic fields (EMF) occupy the lower part of the electromagnetic spectrum in the frequency range 1Hz-100KHz. LF EMFs result from electrically charged particles and occurs whenever electrical current is flowing. Artificial sources are the dominant sources of LF EMF and are usually associated with the generation, distribution, and use of electricity at the frequency of 50 Hz or 60Hz. The most common sources of a high EMF near our homes are substations, power pylons, electrical wiring, and home appliances. The electric field is produced by the voltage whereas the magnetic field is produced by the electrical current and is commonly expressed in μT (microtesla) or nT (nanotesla).

For example, EMF produced by high voltage power lines, carried by power pylons, is a very strong source of EMF. Especially properties located within 100m from power lines or power pylons are at risk of being exposed to potentially harmful levels of EMF. Conducting an EMF test will allow you to make a well-informed decision before buying a new property or evaluating your existing home for any potential risks related to EMF. Low-frequency EMF doesn't travel or expand, it rather exists within a specific perimeter from the source. However, low-frequency EMF is near impossible to effectively shield in regular conditions, this makes conducting an EMF survey, before buying a new property, extremely valuable. 

We also offer EMF testing for any wireless EMF sources such as phone masts, radio towers, or wifi in your home, this can be done through our Radiofrequency EMF survey.

If you are interested in a more holistic and in-depth overview of the EMF environment in your home, we would recommend conducting our Comprehensive EMF survey. This kind of survey covers all possible EMF sources a typical home could be exposed to.
