Thorough EMF Testing Services Dedham MA
James Robinson Home Inspections conducts EMF Testing Services Dedham MA. EMF stands for Electromagnetic Field Testing so is also known as EMF testing services. We are based in Dedham MA but serve Massachusetts, Northern Rhode Island, and Southern New Hampshire.
What is EMF Testing?
We measure different types of EMF fields both inside and outside your dwelling. Using professional electromagnetic field testing equipment- we help you become aware of EMF levels so you can pinpoint potential safety issues, make more educated purchase or living decisions, and take the proper precautions.
What Are Electromagnetic Fields and Why Should You Be Concerned?
Interestingly, Electromagnetic fields, otherwise known as EMF’s are often referred to as radiation, and are present everywhere in our environment so most people are exposed to them on a regular basis. Electromagnetic fields (EMF’s) are a combination of electric and magnetic fields of energy that surround any electrical device that is plugged in and turned on.
Natural Sources of Electromagnetic Fields
Electric fields are created by thunderstorms where there is the local build-up of electric charges in the atmosphere. The earth’s magnetic field causes a compass needle to orient in a North-South direction and is used by a range of animals, birds and fish for orientation and navigation.
Sources of Man-Made Electromagnetic fields
Some sources of electromagnetic fields include hair dryers, microwaves, mobile phone base stations, television antennas, and radio stations.
Sources which have a number of different types of high-frequency radio waves are X-rays used to diagnose broken bones. Also, the electricity that comes out of every power socket has some low-frequency electromagnetic fields.
EMF Exposure-How Much Is Too Much?
Measurement of EMF’s
Magnetic fields are measured in milli-Gauss or mG. EMF testing services uses high-quality equipment, and have area-specific knowledge with many different types of buildings and situations.
The electromagnetic field lessens as you move away from the source and is highest closest to the source. Electromagnetic energy has the ability to influence particles at great distances.
Virtually all EMF researchers agree that more research is necessary to determine safe or dangerous levels. However, when purchasing a home we recommend avoiding homes with levels above the 2-3 mG magnetic field level. This level is not necessarily a safe level but considered a level of risk that is acceptable, given what the research shows at this time.
Avoid EMF Information From Untrained Sources
We do not recommend requesting EMF measurements from the local utility company or electricians because they oftentimes have limited knowledge of how to measure EMF.
