"EMF-Free" Electrical Wiring — Design & Installation...
New Straw Bale Home in Calistoga, California. We installed shielded EMF-Free wiring for this beautiful wine country home while it was being built — at very little extra cost to the electrical installation. The meter panel and switch is located far away at the entrance to the property, and all wiring to and from the house is underground. Magnetic fields inside the home average 0.1 milligauss or less. Electric fields when measured with the body voltage method measure 0.1 volts or less from the wiring. Combined with the extensive use of natural materials, low VOC paints, and the insulating properties of the straw bales, this new eco-home is a model of modern healthful construction.

A. What is "EMF-Free" Wiring?
"EMF-Free" wiring is a special electrical wiring system which uses specific methods and materials — which meet and exceed the requirements of the current National Electric Code — to greatly reduce the electromagnetic fields (EMFs) emitted from electrical wiring, lights, appliances, meters and panels...
B. Design Consultations...
We offer professional consultations to assist you in the design and installation of EMF-Free wiring for your new construction or remodel project. With proper planning, your shielded EMF-Free wiring can usually be installed at little added cost when compared to conventional wiring systems.
Nationally, we provide consultations via telephone to help guide homeowners, electricians, designers and architects in the proper design and installation of this special wiring system. In California, we provide onsite consultations and detailed written specifications for the installation of EMF-Free wiring for your particular construction project.
All design consultations are performed by Michael R. Neuert, an engineer and
electrical contractor with over 14 years of practical experience in the
reduction of EMFs from electrical wiring, panels and other common sources. To arrange a
site visit, schedule a telephone consultation, or request a quote, please call
our office at 1-800-638-3781.
C. Installation of EMF-Free Wiring...
In the San Francisco Bay Area: We offer licensed, bonded and insured electrical contractor services and install EMF-Free wiring for new and remodel building projects in the the North Bay, and throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. We also offer electrical services to troubleshoot high EMF emissions and repair any wiring problems that are causing high emissions in existing buildings. Please contact our office for information on wiring services.
New Round Home in Penngrove, California. We installed shielded wiring for this beautiful and rustic new yurt home — at almost no extra cost to the electrical installation. The meter panel is located several hundred feet away at the edge of the property. The electrical service wires enter underground so there are no overhead wires to see or emit EMFs, and the main panel is located in a utility area far away from where people sleep or spend a lot of time. Magnetic fields inside the home average 0.1 milligauss or less. Electric fields when measured with the body voltage method measure 0.1 volts or less from the wiring.

EMF-Free Wiring for Home Remodel in Rohnert Park, California. This home in a small town north of San Francisco was dark and crowded before the owners decided to expand the footprint of the building. With most of the walls already open for the remodel, it was easy to install new EMF-Free electrical wiring throughout the home. Added care was taken to eliminate EMFs in the bedrooms. This included the installation of a special shut-off switch at the master bed so that all wiring, radios, clocks and other electrical items near the master bedroom could be conveniently and completely turned off during sleep at night.
Home Remodel and Shielding in Palo Alto, California. We provided a complete package of electrical specifications, installation instructions and shielding materials for this older Palo Alto home. Because of the close proximity of the meter panel to the living room, and of the electric ovens to the children's play area, we installed MuMetal shielding materials to reduce the magnetic fields from the meter and two ovens. We also added shielding for the electrical pumps and controls for the hydronic (hot water) heating system which emitted strong EMFs from the basement. Using our specifications, a local electrical contractor performed the actual installation of the EMF-Free wiring.
EMF-Free Wiring for Warehouse in Graton, California. When a small herbal company purchased this rural warehouse building, the owners needed to revamp the electrical system to accommodate their processing facility, warehouse and offices. The design and installation of their new electrical system using shielded EMF-Free wiring materials added almost no extra cost to the electrical construction budget for the project.
Convenient "Shut Off" Switch for Condo in Santa Rosa, California. High electric fields were measured in the upstairs bedrooms of this condominium end unit. The owner wanted to reduce the EMFs for her family, but did not wish to rewire her entire unit with new wiring. To keep costs low, we installed a special switching system with hand-held remotes. This affordable "shut-off" switch allowed the family members to conveniently turn off all the upstairs wiring from their bedsides with the simple push of a button, thus eliminating the EMFs during sleep.
Minimal EMF-Free Wiring for Home in Lafayette, California. One of the people in this home had been experiencing strong symptoms of chemical and electromagnetic hypersensitivity. The family had been turning off the electricity whenever she was home. While this seemed to help her health, the rest of the family was having difficulty living without power. To avoid the both the cost and the disruption of a complete rewire, we modified the electrical system in two ways. First, the old wiring was left as is, but all the breakers were turned off so that the old circuits were completely dead. Second, we added a bare minimum of new shielded EMF-Free circuits — typically one shielded outlet per room, plus shielded wiring for the refrigerator, oven, etc. In this way, the EMFs were reduced, yet the family had some electricity for normal use. This wiring strategy saved greatly on costs and eliminated the need to open up any walls.
EMF-Free Rewire of Older Home in Santa Rosa, California. The EMFs in this small home were relatively high, mostly due to the old "knob-and-tube" wiring in the building. The owners wanted to reduce the EMFs but did not want to remodel or open up any walls. Amazingly, for less than $2000, we completely rewired this small older city home without opening any walls! New shielded wiring was run through the attic, down the inside of existing walls, and also in conduit along the outside of the building, mostly behind bushes. The project included shielding for the main meter panel on the side of the building, because the panel was very close to one of the bedrooms. The result was a simple low-cost wiring system in which both the magnetic fields and electric fields were greatly reduced.
