Water Valley Escape is a remote area. The closest paved road is about .7 mile away. There are few homes in the immediate area. The closest cell tower is 2 miles away. There are 2 cell towers within 4 miles. The nearest cell antenna is 2 miles away and there are 14 cell antennas within 4 miles of Water Valley Escape. (This information is from www.antennasearch.com in 2014.) People who are electrically sensitive may be able to feel the effects of cell towers. Most cell phones will not work at Water Valley Escape because of the distance from the cell towers and because the hills can block the signals. As more people become electrically sensitive it may be beneficial to be in homes that have much land around them.
The home has no cordless phones, which can give off second hand radiation.
The home has been checked with a Stetzerizer microsurge meter (www.stetzerelectric.com), and where appropriate Stetzerizer filters have been installed. The meter measures undesirable electromagnetic (EM) radiation or dirty electricity, which is high frequency voltage transients, which comes from the power line. (Page 57 Dirty Electricity Electrification and the Diseases of Civilization Second Edition by Samuel Milham, MD, MPH) Dr. Milham is a physician –epidemiologist. The filters improve the power quality. In schools where these filters have been tested 35% of the teachers had significant improvements in their health. People who are electronically sensitive can notice a difference.

The geothermal system has an ultraviolet air sanitizer and a lifetime electrostatic air filter. Because the geothermal system is a variable speed system the home is more comfortable because the system is not turning on and off as frequently.
The Energy Star windows not only are energy efficient but also they reduce outside noise.
