Why You Shouldn’t Rely on Trifield Meters to Measure EMF Radiation in Your UK Property: Get an EMF Survey Instead

Concerns over electromagnetic fields (EMF) radiation have been increasing in recent years, and it’s not hard to see why. With the rise of wireless technology and electronic devices, we are constantly surrounded by EMF radiation. This has led many people to start using Trifield meters to measure the amount of EMF radiation in their homes and workplaces. However, there are some limitations to these meters that make them unreliable, and it’s better to get an EMF survey done instead.

What is a Trifield Meter?

A Trifield meter is a type of EMF meter that measures the amount of EMF radiation in a given area. It’s a handheld device that can detect magnetic, electric, and radio waves.

The idea behind using Trifield meters is that they allow people to measure the amount of radiation in their homes and take action if necessary to reduce their exposure.

Limitations of Trifield Meters

While Trifield meters can be useful in some situations, they have several limitations that make them unreliable. Firstly, they only measure a limited range of frequencies. This means that they may not detect all types of EMF radiation in your home, which could be a cause for concern. Additionally, Trifield meters can be affected by other electromagnetic fields in the environment, which can make the readings inaccurate.

Another limitation of Trifield meters is that they only give a snapshot of the radiation levels at a particular moment in time. EMF radiation levels can fluctuate depending on a variety of factors, including the number of devices in use and the time of day. Therefore, relying solely on a single reading from a Trifield meter may not provide an accurate picture.

Trifield meters are a popular choice for measuring electromagnetic fields (EMFs) due to their versatility and ease of use. However, there are several limitations to these devices that users should be aware of:

Limited frequency range: Trifield meters are designed to measure the magnetic and electric fields in the frequency range of 50 Hz to 1 MHz. They are not suitable for measuring higher frequency fields, such as those emitted by Wi-Fi routers or cell phones.

Directional sensitivity: Trifield meters are directional, meaning that the readings can vary depending on the orientation of the meter relative to the EMF source. This can make it difficult to obtain accurate and consistent readings.

Non-selective measurement: Trifield meters measure the total magnetic and electric fields present in an area, regardless of the source. This can make it difficult to identify specific sources of EMF, especially in areas with multiple sources.

Inaccurate readings near other objects: Trifield meters can be affected by nearby objects, such as metal or electrical wiring, which can cause inaccurate readings.

Calibration issues: Trifield meters require regular calibration to maintain accuracy. Failure to calibrate the meter can result in inaccurate readings.

Limited data storage and analysis: Trifield meters do not have the ability to store large amounts of data or perform advanced data analysis. This can make it difficult to track changes in EMF levels over time or identify patterns in the data.

Overall, while Trifield meters are a useful tool for measuring EMFs, they do have limitations that should be taken into consideration when interpreting the results. It is important to use these devices in conjunction with other methods of EMF measurement and to seek professional advice when necessary.

I had been in contact with EMF inspections LTd for the past few months while were were searching for a house to buy. They were incredibly professional and obliging and always happy to answer my questions. The survey itself was done in a very professional and friendly way. They have the option of next day booking. I received the report the following day, it was comprehensive and very informative and easy to understand. I would highly recommend their services to anyone. Thank you!

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!
