EMF Field Guides: The Beginner’s Guide to
How to Test for Magnetic Fields
In this EMF Field Guide we’re going to give you a brief overview of how to DIY test for AC magnetic fields.
To test for AC magnetic fields you’ll need to purchase a gaussmeter. To read our current recommended meter picks, please visit our Recommended EMF Meters page.
Let’s get started:
How to Test Your Home or Office for AC Magnetic Fields
As mentioned above, you’ll need a gaussmeter to do DIY magnetic field surveying.
If you don’t have one already, please see our Recommended EMF Meters chapter.
Gaussmeters are relatively easy to use, but due to the variety of models on the market it can be difficult to demonstrate the use of and address all the possible issues that meter owners may encounter.
Initially, we recommend that people read their EMF Meter manual thoroughly. If there are still issues afterwards, we always recommend searching “How to use + EMF MODEL YOU PURCHASED” in both Youtube and your preferred search engine.
Having said that, we’ve included some instructional videos below that address how to measure AC magnetic fields for some of the EMF meter models that we recommend DIYers purchase.
We hope to have our own video tutorials up on these pages before long.
Lastly, as with all our sections, some of the outbound links may be affiliate links to help our mission of EMF education.
