EMF Survey for prospective home buyers in the UK

Buying a house can be an exciting adventure and a big investment. There are often plenty of unknowns. For peace of mind, it is protocol for prospective buyers to hire inspectors before any decision is made for components like plumbing, structure, grounds, electrical system, and more.
In addition to those important factors, many prospective buyers should also consider getting an Electromagnetic Field Protection (EMF) Survey to measure exposure to electromagnetic waves. Research shows that long-term exposure to high levels of EMF affects your health. Possible symptoms may be headaches, insomnia, and fatigue. The elderly, pregnant women and infants are particularly vulnerable. Many studies even suggest a link between EMFs and brain cancer.

We naturally have our own electromagnetic field. Our nervous system communicates with the rest of our body through electronic impulses. Because of this, artificially generated EMFs can disrupt your bodies metabolism, compromising your immune system.

It is hard to completely avoid artificial EMFs. Levels of EMFs have gone up steadily as use of electricity in homes and businesses has become universal. However, you can minimize danger to you and your family by making sure your prospective home is within safe limits. That can be done with an EMF survey. The detectable magnetic field from a substation is anywhere from 3 to 15 metres away but you can also be affected by waves from power lines and a power pylon. In short, because EMF waves are impossible to detect on sight, you need an EMF survey to give you a measurement to assess the danger. Also, make sure to inquire whether the power company regularly conducts substation testing so that the EMFs stay within safe limits.

And if health isn’t enough of a motivating factor for you to pass up a dream home with high levels of EMFs, consider the financial outlook of that purchase. Given the health implications of EMFs, the resale value of the home will likely be lower than desired.

Keep you and your family safe from harmful EMF levels. If you are interested in buying a house, it is important to get an EMF survey beforehand.
