Electromagnetic Field Measurement and Risk Assessment of Heat Cost Allocation Measuring Systems
There is widespread application of the central heating system in apartment buildings. It helps to improve energy
efficiency and to promote energy savings. The metering of the energy consumption commercially has been applied in two
ways as hot water measurement or thermal energy measurement. The measurement with remote reading systems provides
great advantages in terms of time and accuracy with Radio Frequency (RF) technology. RF communication technologies
have applications in many areas to make our lives easier. On the contrary, RF devices such as cell phones, Wi-Fi, cordless
phones increases exposure of electromagnetic fields. In this study, radiation level and risk assessment of the heat cost
allocation measurement devices (HCAMD) were measured and discussed. According to the results of the totally 26 points
electric field measurement, the value of the electromagnetic fields that can cause adverse health and biological effects have
not been recorded.
