Common electrical issues in Northeast Austin

Communities in Northeast Austin are subject to the city’s abundance of limestone, hard soil, and intense heat and humidity.

Humidity can contribute to corrosion of electrical components, specifically in outdoor or poorly ventilated spaces. Additionally, hard soil may present higher ground resistance compared to other soils, which can affect the efficiency of grounding electrodes. In these cases, special considerations might be needed to ensure proper grounding of electrical installations to protect against electrical faults.

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