Working with Your Electrician to Remedy EMFs in Your Home

Are you concerned about the effect that electrical pollution and dirty electricity may be having on your health and that of your family? Chronic headaches, digestive issues, heart palpitations, fatigue and insomnia can all be symptoms of illness caused by exposure to EMFs, which seems to be part and parcel of modern life. Thankfully, there are ways working with an electrician that can help you to take back your health and reduce exposure to dirty electricity.

Working With an Electrician
Using an EMF detector is a relatively simple task which can have definite benefits for your family. An EMF detector will allow you to pinpoint problem areas and find things which your electrician should address. While it is wise to check your home for high EMF activity on a fairly regular basis, it’s not advised to take matters into your own hands. Improper wiring can and does create problem areas with EMFs, but attempting to rectify the situation without proper training can also create a wide array of dangers as well. The most pressing concern for do-it-yourself projects relates to fire hazards and the risk of electrical shock during an attempted repair.

After you've determined which areas of your home are sources of high EMF activity, it’s important to work with a licensed electrician to address the problem. There are many methods I employ to reduce your exposure to EMFs and dirty electricity, but it helps if you know the right talking points to address the issue properly.

Smart Meters
Electric companies are in the business of providing you with power, but they’re also in the business of making money. One of the ways they’re starting to lower spending is through the installation of smart meters, which do not require a technician to read them each month. Instead, the data is reported back to the utility company via wireless signal. While these devices are more efficient, they may also be putting your health at risk by exposing you to electromagnetic radiation. My advice would be to have your electrician reduce exposure risk by creating a grounded shield.

Professional Upgrades
Older, low-quality switches, fixtures and outlets can be a significant source of electrical pollution in your home. Working with an electrician to replace and upgrade them is wise, as it’s not advised for the average homeowner to tackle wiring issues on their own. Be sure you’re working with an electrician who understands EMF sensitivity, and will ensure all of your outlets and switches are side-wired, rather than back-wired. In the case of clients who are EMF sensitive with clients consent I remove all the halogen lights and dimmer switches throughout the home, replacing dimmers with three-way lights, which are a healthier alternative.

It also pays to discuss the installation of demand switches with your electrician, which will shut off the electricity on certain circuits in your house until it’s needed. Not only do they help to prevent exposure to electrical pollution, but can also lower your energy use overall. Working with an electrician to address your concerns may also help you to uncover new areas where improvements can be made, thus safeguarding your health and well-being.
