Common electrical issues in Central Austin

From the University of Texas to Hyde Park, to Hancock, communities in Central Austin are subject to the city’s hard soil and humidity.

Humidity in Central Austin can contribute to corrosion of electrical components, specifically in outdoor or poorly ventilated spaces. Moreover, abundance of limestone in the area makes for hard soil which may present higher ground resistance compared to other soils. This can affect the efficiency of grounding electrodes. In such cases, special considerations might be needed to ensure proper grounding of electrical installations to protect against electrical faults.

As a local electrician in Central Austin, Terrapin Electric is familiar with these challenges and works to ensure your system is equipped to withstand the elements.
