I am new to learning about this but am trying to fix some of the issues at our house. My Dr found that I might be electronically sensitive. I have improved my insomnia by shutting off our wifi at night. I also bought two stetizer filters to see if they would help. My husband, unfortunately, does not believe that this is an issue and is very upset and irritated at me for trying to remedy it. I figure getting a meter would be a great way to show him that this is an issue. However, I’d like to only get one meter at this time. I looked at the tri meter and looked at a lot of the info on this site. Can I use stetizer filters with one of these meters? I’d rather not have to get an additional meter.
Also any thoughts on old wiring in houses?
Most of our outlets do not have a ground? I’m not sure what we can do other than having an electrician rewire everything which I don’t think we can afford right now. I thought about having someone come out to do an emf check instead of buying the meter but if I’d have to rewire the house first I’d rather start saving for that. Not really sure how to proceed here…

Hi Kelisk8s and welcome to the forum. My first comment would be that it is impossible to place Stetzer filters where they are effective without a dirty electricity (DE) meter. There are a couple I know of – the Stetzeriser meter and a slightly different one by Greenwave, which is sold on several sites. I’ve found that dealing with DE and installing the filters is more of an art than a science, and I’ve never managed to get my DE levels down to a really satisfactory level with a reasonable number of filters. There’s a good article about this in the Powerwatch article library here https://www.powerwatch.org.uk/…../index.asp
under ‘Your Low EMF Home’
Note the warnings about older house wiring….. Also the DE filters can create a high current on the wiring, which older houses particularly may not be able to handle.
There are several other filtering options available depending on the severity of the problem and whether the DE is generated by your own appliances or is coming in from outside. I’ve found the standard capacitive filters to be quite effective for DE from appliances (where they can be plugged in adjacent to the offending appliance) but less so for DE coming in from outside.
The other solution advocated by some building biologists is to focus on reducing the power frequency electric field levels. This will reduce the DE intrusion into the living space, as the DE rides on top of the power frequency. But this may involve rewiring….

if you get your wiring renewed get BRAIDED or SCREENED mains cable, it is more expensive so it is best to make sure the bedroom walls are done first, it is like RF coax wire used for your television.
I have a BRAIDED or SCREENED mains extension lead cable running under my bed, I turn the the wall switch off near my bed just after getting into bed (like I should be now, in bed)
Also the most cost effective tools to check for dirty electricity is a AM radio, that is not tunned to a radio station.
Radio have a AVC (Automatic Volume Control) or AGC (Automatic Gain Control) in the radio, when the radio is not on the radio station the RF(Radio Frequency) & IF (intermediate Frequency) section of the radio has the highest gain for best amplification , as it gets tunned into a radio section or a stronger station the AVG or AGC section reduces the gain, So this is why the radio has to be detuned so it can pick up the RF dirty electricity given off by the electrical wiring.
