Texas-Sized Heat Brings Texas-Sized Electrical Problems

Mister Sparky Electrician Houston dealing with electrical problems during Houston Texas heat.

Because Texas is so large, energy consumption is well beyond any other state in the nation. As a result of electrical use being so high, there are similar problems that many residents face.

Precious Lone-Star humidity

If there’s one thing southeast Texans don’t miss when they’re out and about traveling, it’s the ridiculous humidity we suffer from year-round. Not only does this weather effect our sweat glands, it’s also considered a culprit to A/C issues. Mugginess builds up and eventually jams up the condensate drain in your unit, which of course leads to air conditioning problems (and who wants that?).

System overloads

Once again, the Texas heat is proven guilty to common home electrical issues. What happens during our hot seasons (which sometimes seem never ending), air conditioning units are, like you, sweating their vents off. They’re working their hardest to keep your house warm and boom, they overload. This problem is avoidable by using other appliances such as the washing machine during non-peak hours, and avoiding excessive, unnecessary use of electronics.

We’re just too large for our own good

Sounds like a broken record, but Texas’ size has come with many cons. Because energy demand is so high in our state, we have to utilize different conservation methods such as thermal energy, which stores ice used for air conditioning during “non-peak hours” and saves it for the next day’s high-peak demand hours.  This method helps Texas’ homeowners by finding new, efficient strategies to maintain energy during high-demand hours.
