House wiring, dirty electricity and household appliances

House EMFsHouse wiring can produce high levels of powerfrequency (low frequency) electric and magnetic fields. The UK uses a different way of wiring houses to many countries, which makes high fields more likely.

Dirty electricity (DE) is electromagnetic noise being on the mains wiring of a house, when it isn't supposed to be. DE can come into your house on the local electricity supply, or it can be generated by devices in your home. Solar panels (such as ones on the roof, feeding electricity back to the electricity company) create high levels of DE. Research has suggested that DE can be responsible for major health problems.

Many commonly used electrical appliances generate high levels of powerfrequency (low frequency) EMFs. It is worth identifying which ones do so and avoiding them, or keeping them away from children, convalescents, or people with poor immune systems. EMFs have been found to give health problems to these people. Some appliances like microwave ovens also give off radiofrequency (high frequency) EMFs.

The best way to check power frequency exposure levels (caused by the distribution and use of electricity) is to hire or buy a suitable instrument such as an EMFields ELF meter, which measures both electric and magnetic fields. You can also buy another, cheaper (but still highly accurate) alternative such as the MagneMeter, which measures magnetic fields only, but these are the fields which have been researched the most with respect to health effects.

The best way to check for "dirty electricity" in your house is by hiring a dirty electricity meter. If you find you have elevated dirty electricity levels, a simple solution is to install as many DE2 dirty electricity filters as you need.

The best way to check for radio frequency exposure levels (caused by most wireless devices) is to hire a suitable instrument such as an Acoustimeter. You can also purchase this instrument or another, cheaper (but still highly accurate) alternative such as the Acousticom 2.

We hire out and sell instruments to measure electromagnetic field exposure from sources such as electricity substations and transformers, powerlines and mobile phone masts, and offer a number of protective shielding solutions for those who find themselves highly exposed. We also provide a list of some EMF Surveyors on our surveys website.

We have designed all of our own instruments which are manufactured in the UK and have a 2-year return-to-base warranty. We are able to zero-rate UK VAT on certain items, if you complete an exemption form, or have selected that you are Electrically Hypersensitive in your profile.

We can ship most of our products world-wide.
