EMFs at My Property in the UK – All Your Frequently Asked Questions Answered

If you’re concerned about electromagnetic fields (EMFs) at your property in the UK, you’re not alone. EMFs are generated by electronic devices and appliances, as well as power lines and other sources of electrical current. And while there’s no definitive proof that EMFs can cause harm to humans, there is evidence to suggest that they could be a contributing factor to a range of health problems, from headaches to cancer.

To help you understand more about EMFs at your property, we’ve put together this comprehensive FAQ guide. Read on to find out everything you need to know.

What Are EMFs?

EMFs are a type of radiation that’s generated by electronic devices and appliances, as well as power lines and other sources of electrical current. They’re present everywhere in our environment, and we’re exposed to them on a daily basis.

While there’s no definitive proof that EMFs can cause harm to humans, there is evidence to suggest that they could be a contributing factor to a range of health problems, from headaches to cancer. This is why it’s important to take steps to reduce your exposure to EMFs wherever possible.

What Are the Sources of EMFs at My Property?

There are many sources of EMFs at your property, including:

  • Power lines and transformers
  • Electrical wiring and appliances
  • Wireless devices, such as mobile phones, Wi-Fi routers, and smart meters
  • Electrical equipment, such as computers and TVs
  • Radar and microwave ovens

How Do I Know If I’m Being Exposed to High Levels of EMFs?

The only way to know for sure if you’re being exposed to high levels of EMFs is to have an EMF survey done. An EMF survey will measure the levels of EMFs at your property and identify any sources of high EMFs.

What Are the Health Risks of Exposure to EMFs?

While there’s no definitive proof that EMFs can cause harm to humans, there is evidence to suggest that they could be a contributing factor to a range of health problems, from headaches to cancer. Other health problems that have been linked to EMF exposure include:

  • Sleep disturbances
  • Fatigue
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Memory loss
  • Concentration problems
  • Infertility

How Can I Reduce My Exposure to EMFs?

There are many ways to reduce your exposure to EMFs, including:

  • Keep your distance from sources of high EMFs, such as power lines and electrical transformers
  • Use wired devices instead of wireless devices, where possible
  • Turn off electrical appliances when they’re not in use
  • Use shielding materials to reduce EMF exposure
  • Limit your use of mobile phones and other wireless devices

Why Should I Get an EMF Survey Done?

Getting an EMF survey done is important for several reasons. Firstly, it will give you peace of mind and help you to identify any sources of high EMFs at your property. This can be particularly important if you’re concerned about the health risks associated with EMF exposure.

Secondly, an EMF survey can help you to reduce your exposure to EMFs by identifying areas where you can make changes to reduce your exposure. This can be particularly important if you’re experiencing health problems that you think could be linked to EMF exposure.

Finally, an EMF survey can be useful if you’re planning to sell your property. By having an EMF survey done, you can demonstrate to potential buyers that your property is safe and free from high levels of EMFs.

How Does an EMF Survey Work?

During an EMF survey, a trained professional will use specialist equipment to measure the levels of EMFs at your property. They’ll then provide you with a report that identifies any sources of high EMFs and makes recommendations for how you can reduce your exposure.

The survey may take a few hours to complete, depending on the size of your property and the complexity of the EMF sources. The cost of an EMF survey can vary depending on the provider, the size of your property, and the scope of the survey.

It’s important to choose a reputable and experienced professional to carry out your EMF survey. Look for someone who has relevant qualifications and experience, and who uses state-of-the-art equipment to carry out the survey.

Can I Do an EMF Survey Myself?

It’s not recommended to do an EMF survey yourself, as it requires specialist equipment and expertise. There’s also a risk of inaccurate readings if the equipment is not calibrated correctly or used properly.

It’s best to leave the EMF survey to a trained professional who has the expertise and equipment to carry out the survey accurately and safely.

What Can I Expect from an EMF Survey Report?

An EMF survey report will typically include:

  • A summary of the findings
  • A list of sources of high EMFs
  • Recommendations for reducing your exposure to EMFs
  • Information on safe levels of EMFs
  • Details of the equipment used during the survey

The report may also include diagrams or photos to help you understand the findings and recommendations.

What Can I Do to Reduce My Exposure to EMFs?

There are many steps you can take to reduce your exposure to EMFs, including:

  • Keep your distance from sources of high EMFs, such as power lines and electrical transformers
  • Use wired devices instead of wireless devices, where possible
  • Turn off electrical appliances when they’re not in use
  • Use shielding materials to reduce EMF exposure
  • Limit your use of mobile phones and other wireless devices

It’s also important to practice good sleep hygiene, as exposure to EMFs can disrupt sleep. This means establishing a regular sleep routine, avoiding screens and bright lights before bed, and creating a comfortable sleep environment.

In Conclusion

EMFs are present everywhere in our environment, and we’re exposed to them on a daily basis. While there’s no definitive proof that EMFs can cause harm to humans, there is evidence to suggest that they could be a contributing factor to a range of health problems.

If you’re concerned about EMFs at your property in the UK, the best course of action is to have an EMF survey done. This will give you peace of mind and help you to identify any sources of high EMFs so you can take steps to reduce your exposure.

Remember, reducing your exposure to EMFs is an ongoing process that requires awareness and effort. By taking steps to reduce your exposure, you can protect your health and wellbeing, and create a safer and healthier environment for yourself and your loved ones.

Thank you EMF Inspectrions Ltd for doing our Low Frequency EMF Survey. We had Galin who came to do the survey and he was brilliant. Not only was he polite but very informative and knew his stuff. We were in the process of purchasing a propery next to an electrical sub-station and was worried that the EMF could be penetrating the property. Galin went round the entire property inside and out, down the alley and in the garden and took readings. He explained the different levels of readings and reassured us that all of our readings were below the government guidelines. We are so pleased with the service. We booked on a Monday and had the survey on Wednesday (we could of had Tuesday if we wanted). The report was with us on Thursday which is brillianty written out to explain the readings for people who are not "experts". Would highly recommend using EMF Inspections Ltd to anyone. Thank you again!
