Are you buying or living near high tension overhead power wires?

Buying or Living Near Power Lines

If you are considering buying near high voltage power lines or currently live in a house near a power corridor and need to know whether it’s safe or not, you’re in the right place.

Despite under-informed naysayers, the fact is, high levels of Electric and Magnetic fields are generated by the power lines and studies are coming in to indicate long term proximity to power lines can cause cancer, childhood leukemia and other diseases.


EMF radiation is all around us

Electric and magnetic fields are generated wherever electricity is used – they are around us all the time in today’s world. Overhead power lines are one source but they are only one part of the picture. The wiring in your dream home may also be generating high levels of magnetic and electric radiation. The best solution is to have a professional test the home or condo with professional meters and interpret the results against the latest EMF research and guidelines.

What sort of overhead line is near me and how close is too close?

Overhead lines range from lower-voltage lines (“distribution lines”) on wood poles to higher-voltage lines (“transmission lines”) on lattice steel towers. Dangerous levels of  magnetic and electric radiation could exist at distances of 200 m to 800 meters. If in doubt, have us come out and do a measurement. Then you will know for sure!

Living near, or buying a home near ComEd powerlines? Safety guidelines and testing services.

What distance from power lines is considered safe in the Chicago area? Recent studies indicate health problems where the distance is in the 300 to 600 yard range. But sometimes less… The only way to be sure is to have a test done.

We test for power line safety. Our EMF inspectors can come to your location to test the radiation levels and whether there is potential harm.

We are located in Chicago. Our EMF consultants measure and test the magnetic and electric energy radiating from ComEd high voltage powerlines. We can tell you whether the measured readings are considered safe according to the latest EMF safety research. Depending on the amount of power flowing through the lines and the distance, a safe distance could be relatively close or might be farther away than you expect. The only way to know for sure is to get a test done.

Studies have shown that living too close to high voltage power lines power transmission networks can cause cancer and other health issues. We measure harmful EMF radiation near power lines and do EMF home inspections in the greater Chicago area and all over norther Illinois and Indiana.
