Should you Do-it-yourself or Call an EMF Specialist

Surveying Your Home: Contact an EMF Pro or DIY?

If you’ve decided that you want to survey your home to learn if there are any irregular EMF levels, the next step is deciding whether you want to hire an EMF professional, try to go about the investigation alone, or a mixture of the two.

In the end this decision depends solely on you, your budget and your available time.

When to call an EMF Expert or Building Biologist

  • If you’re experiencing uncertainty about the entire process.
  • You’re not as curious about the science or the accumulated data and simply want to make sure your family is safe from the possible biological risks of EMFs.
  • You just don’t have the time to purchase or rent a meter, do the survey yourself, and lead any subsequent mitigation efforts.
  • If you don’t want to take a chance with the survey readings and want to ensure that professional-grade meters are being utilized.

Who may want to DIY

  • A person who enjoys DIY activities and would enjoy the process and technical aspects of taking your own EMF meter readings
  • Someone who has the time and inclination to properly do the surveys and research what the results mean to one’s home and office environments
  • Someone who will use the tools for subsequent surveys of loved one’s and friends’ homes, can afford to add the tools to their collection of useful instruments, or feels comfortable reselling the meters on the secondary market when no longer needed.

When to utilize both

  • There’s nothing stopping you from taking your own readings and then consulting an EMF specialist. Most EMF specialists will consult with you over the phone/skype/facetime for a reasonable hourly fee.
  • This is an effective means of surveying a home that isn’t in practical traveling distance from the service area of the EMF specialist.

It’s important to reiterate that Electromagnetic Radiation Specialists and other EMF professionals, beyond having hundreds or thousands of hours of specialized training and experience, also utilize professional grade meters.

The discrepancy in readings from the lower-end meters and these professional meters can be significant and this can mean that homeowners won’t receive the full picture of EMF exposure.

Read an example of this from Dave Green, a Building Biologist and EMF Consultant in Michigan.
