Common electrical issues in Southwest Austin

Though they lie south of the heart of the city, Circle C, Bear Creek, and Escarpment Village are not immune  to the region’s hard soil and high levels of humidity.

While generally harmless, the humidity in Southwest Austin can contribute to corrosion of electrical components, especially in outdoor or poorly ventilated spaces. Not to mention, the limestone ridden soil can sometimes present higher ground resistance which can affect the efficiency of grounding electrodes.

As a local electrician in Southwest Austin, we take special considerations to ensure proper grounding and to protect against electrical faults.
