So, you just got a new EMF meter and are walking around the house measuring things. The meter is beeping, lights are flashing, numbers are appearing on the screen and you are asking yourself,

What is a high meter reading?” or “Are these readings at an unsafe level?” These are brilliant questions, and in this article, we want to break them down and explain what a high EMF reading is and why you should be concerned when you get numbers above these readings.


Regardless of the type of EMF radiation you and your family may be exposed to, investing in an EMF protection product will go a long way in helping to protect you and your loved ones from the potential dangers you are exposed to. To summarize the entire article, here are the numbers that we think represent high EMF readings for the following forms of EMF radiation:

  • Electric fields:> 10 V/m (volts per meter)
  • Magnetic fields:> 1 mG (milliGauss)
  • Radio frequencies:> 1 mW/m² (milliwatts per square meter)

In this article, we will explain in more detail why we came to these conclusions, what sources we get information from, and why many regulators are unrealistic about safe radiation levels.

What is Considered a High Level of EMF?

So let’s first break down what we mean by “high EMF reading”. There are several EMF meters on the market and they all have different peak values ​​and many even use different units of measure. So, for the purposes of this article, we will actually only talk about detrimental levels of electric fields, magnetic fields, and radiofrequency radiation. Of course, those levels will drop well below the maximum level on your meter, but it is helpful to know at which level to start worrying so that you can take action and reduce your exposure.


Let’s talk about each one individually. However, it is important to note that it’s somewhat difficult to determine how much damage from electromagnetic radiation occurs, as many regulators, organizations, researchers, and governments at these levels disagree. We will talk about it even as we move forward.

Readings for High Magnetic Fields

Magnetic field values ​​in living spaces greater than 1 mG are considered high.

When it comes to magnetic field safety guidelines, most regulators base their decisions on either the IEEE recommendations or the ICNIRP guidelines. The ICNIRP guidelines are stricter than the IEEE as they recommend a 2000 mG maximum exposure limit. Let’s give that a bit more perspective.

The Bioinitiative report was a report drafted by 14 scientists around the world that summarized the results of hundreds of studies on the biological effects of electromagnetic radiation on the body. In 2012, a total of 29 scientists updated the report after 1,800 additional studies were reviewed, and ultimately published an almost 1,500-word report on these potential dangers. Although the Bioinitiative report drew many conclusions, one of them was a recommendation of 1 mG for magnetic fields in living spaces. If you have a high-quality EMF meter, you will possibly notice readings in your living space between 0.1mG and 1mG. These are the ambient levels you are likely to expect in a modern home.

So you can see how easy it is to be exposed to levels above the safety recommendations of the Bioinitiative report when you approach electronic devices that generate magnetic fields. The reason the 1 mG recommendation is more reasonable than the outrageous 2000 mG recommendation from agencies like ICNIRP is that it’s based on objective research by almost 30 scientists around the world who have conducted more than 2000 studies on the harmful biological effects of electromagnetic radiation.

After reviewing these studies and working hard to develop the report, they resolved that 1 mG is the upper limit your body should be exposed to. New research, such as a study by researchers at McGill University, suggests that biological damage to the body can occur even at concentrations below 1 mG.

So at this point, it seems like the most credible reading for dangerous magnetic fields is probably just over 1 mG. We would also like to point out that this recommendation is based on the ambient levels of the living spaces, that is, where you spend most of your time. If you take your EMF meter and bring it close to an electronic device, especially those with motors, you will get much higher readings. For instance, your computer could give you readings well above 100 mG if you are very close to it.

Readings for High Electric Fields

Electric field values ​​in living spaces greater than 10 V/m are considered high. We are talking far less about dangerous levels of radiation from electric fields than we do about magnetic fields and radiofrequency radiation. This is because magnetic field radiation is more common and somehow more penetrating than electric fields.

Since this is a less-discussed form of electromagnetic radiation, there is less information about it, but we want to summarize why we concluded that ambient readings above 10 V/m are probably high. If you walk through areas of your home away from electronic devices such as your television or computer, you will probably get values between 1 and 5 V/m. Let’s take a look at the analysis of what is called a high electric field value by a few research groups.

German Building Biology Group

According to a report from the German Building Biology Group, you will find the following:

  • <1 V/m – No Concern
  • 1 to 5 V/m – Mild Concern
  • 5 to 50 V/m – Serious Concern
  • <50 V / m – Of Great Concern

To make clear what this means, here is the description of these categories.

No Concern – This category offers the highest level of precaution. It is a reflection of the unexposed natural conditions or the usual and almost unavoidable background level of the modern living environment.

Mild Concern – As a precaution, and particularly for sensitive and sick people, corrective action should be taken whenever possible.

Serious Concern – The values ​​in this category aren’t acceptable from a construction biology point of view, they require action. Corrective action must be taken soon. In addition to several case studies, scientific studies indicate health problems and biological effects within this reference range.

Of Great Concern: These values ​​require rigorous and immediate action. In this category, international recommendations and guidelines for occupational and public exposures can be met or even exceeded.


Now, for comparison, let’s take a look at a version of electric field readings from a regulator that you should be concerned about: 5000 V/m. Think about the extreme of this difference. If you position your EMF meter on a working iMac, you will get electric field values of about 400V/m. This should tell you that the limits of these agencies are far from a level of protection.

General Consensus

From our research, the general consensus (especially in Europe) seems to be that living spaces should be maintained at ambient levels below 10 V/m. any reading above this is certainly not an immediate problem, but you should use your EMF meter to determine where the highest levels are coming from so that you can resolve the exposure. Fortunately, electric field values are very consistent, stable, and constantly fluctuate with distance.


Therefore, locating a source of electric field radiation in your living space is similar to the cold and hot game you may have played as a child. If you walk around your house and see levels above 10V/m, start moving in one direction and if the readings increases, keep moving, otherwise go back to the start and try another direction. With this method, you should be able to locate electronic components that emit large amounts of radiation.

Readings for High Radiofrequency

Radiofrequency values ​​in living spaces greater than 1 mW/m² are considered high. Now, let’s take a look at one of the most harmful and ubiquitous types of electromagnetic radiation, radiofrequency. This is the type of EMF radiation cell phones, cell phone towers, Wi-Fi, and many more expose you to.

It is important to note that if you are using an EMF meter to measure radiofrequency radiation, pay attention to the peak value, not the primary value on the top left of the screen. The reason is that when data is sent over radiofrequency, it is sent in packets and is not consistent, like electric or magnetic field readings. So you need an EMF meter that displays and measures these peak values to really understand how much radiation you are exposed to.

So let’s now talk a bit about why we chose 1 mW/m² as the high measured value for RF radiation. First, this is the current recommendation of the Bioinitiative report. Indeed, in their conclusions, they state the following:

“At least 5 new studies on cell phone masts report biological effects between 0.003 and 0.05 µW/cm2 with values ​​lower than those reported in 2007 (0.05-0.1 µW/cm2 was the range lower than levels where no effect was observed in 2007). Researchers report headaches, behavioral problems, and difficulty concentrating in adolescents and children; and concentration problems, headaches, and sleep disturbances in adults. Public safety standards are 1,000 to 10,000 times higher than what is commonly reported in studies of cellular base stations for biological effects.”

To be clear, 0.1 µW/cm2 equals 1 mW/m² just so you can understand the conversions. This quote indicates that new studies report biological effects in the range of 0.003 to 0.05 µW/cm2, which would correspond to 0.03 to 0.5 mW/m². Unfortunately, most regulators set safe levels for RF exposure that are 1,000 to 10,000 times higher than these levels.


You are possibly more familiar with the specific absorption rate or SAR, which we have mentioned in several articles. In essence, SAR is the only government guideline that manufacturers of electronic devices that emit RF radiation (for example, cell phones) must comply with. For instance, in the United States, all mobile phones must have a SAR of less than 1.6 W/Kg. This means that the body cannot absorb more than 1.6 watts of energy per kilogram of body weight.

Many cell phone manufacturers produce devices that are just below this benchmark. However, a growing number of researchers and scientists find that these values ​​are far from protective values. If you hold an EMF meter close to a cell phone, you will notice spikes of around 10 mW/m² even while browsing the Internet. This is way beyond what most scientists and researchers would consider harmless.

How to Protect Against Exposure to EMF

The bottom line is that in excessive amounts, all forms of EMF radiation are extremely dangerous. If you have any electronic device in your home that you use frequently, there are steps you can take to reduce your exposure to EMFs depending on the type of radiation that is affecting you.

Low to Medium Frequency EMFs

Remember that this category of electromagnetic fields includes extremely low-frequency electromagnetic fields (ELF-EMF) and radio frequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMF). This type of radiation is generated by any electrical device. These devices range from vacuum cleaners and refrigerators to computer monitors (when turned on) and televisions.

The intensity of electromagnetic fields near household appliances decreases rapidly with increasing distance. At one foot, the magnetic fields surrounding most devices are more than 100 times lower than the ICINRP guideline limit for the general public.

Do not sit or stand near the household appliances. One of the smartest ways to avoid exposure to EMF in your home is to keep your distance from household appliances. You need to get closer to turn on the TV, open the microwave or fridge, and load your washing machine. Just keep these close encounters as short as possible and don’t sit near these appliances or allow your kids to do so.

Put down your phone. Particularly when you are not using the cell phone, place it away from you. Take it to another room at night when you are sleeping.

Do not carry your phone in your pocket. Try to carry your cell phone in a purse or briefcase when you are on the move.

Occasionally disconnect from electricity and electronic devices. Take an electronic day off or even several days. Your body will thank you!

High-frequency EMFs

Remember that this is the type of radiation that is potentially harmful to your health. High levels of high-frequency electromagnetic fields can damage cells and DNA. Small amounts of this radiation come from medical devices such as x-ray machines and ultraviolet rays from the sun or tanning beds.

To reduce your exposure to high levels of these EMFs and the risks associated with them, try these tips:

  • Limit the time you spend in the sun. You need a little sunlight for your health, but not too much. Additionally, avoid the sun during lunchtime when the rays are strongest.
  • Limit X-rays. Receive only medically necessary X-rays.
  • Limit your time in the solarium. If you need to get a quick summer tan, limit your time under the light.
