Common electrical issues in Southeast Austin

Communities in Southeast Austin including Airport Area, Del Valle, Pilot Knob, and Moores Crossing are subject to the hard soil and humidity of Austin’s climate.

​​The area’s humidity can contribute to corrosion of electrical components, especially in outdoor or poorly ventilated spaces. Additionally, heavy limestone areas may present higher ground resistance compared to other soils, which 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.

Our Southeast Austin electricians are familiar with these challenges and work to ensure your electrical system is equipped to withstand the elements.
