Many homes do not have sufficient power points. Or live in a more aged home or business. You will find this particularly true, especially in rooms such as the kitchen, office and home theatre, which have multiple appliances reliant on power.
In addition, older properties often have only one outlet per power point, restricting the number of appliances that can be secured at any time.
With the amount of gadgets and appliances in the ordinary property ever increasing, many owners find that there aren’t sufficient powerpoints in their property – in fact, the average new home needs 30-40 power outlets, businesses and commercial properties need even more.
This is especially prevalent in older homes and properties but also occurs in new builds. We’re here to help with powerpoint installation in Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast.
Suppose you don’t have sufficient powerpoints or find that they are in awkward places. In that instance, you might opt for the quick fix of attaching extension cables and plug adaptors.
Nevertheless, these look messy and unattractive, as well as being possibly dangerous. Moreover, powerpoints are especially important when it comes to selling your property.
The best answer is to have new powerpoints installed precisely where you want them.
Types of powerpoints
There is an overabundance of different powerpoint choices to pick from, with several styles, sizes, and configurations. The most prevalent types of powerpoint comprise:
- Single GPO
- Weatherproof GPO
- Double GPO
- USB GPO
- Double with switch GPO
- 15a powerpoints
You can also pick from various colour options if you want your powerpoint to mingle into the background or pick push buttons or glass for style purposes. It all depends on your individual requirements and taste. Our licensed electricians are delighted to discuss your choices with you.

Factors affecting powerpoint installation cost
The overall powerpoint installation cost is reliant on several circumstances. For instance, the position of the powerpoint within the property or exterior garden may influence the number of supplies required for the job, and consequently, the price.
The price of powerpoints and wiring elements also varies, which will influence the overall powerpoint installation cost.
Moreover, suppose your powerpoints are being installed in a place that is challenging to reach or inaccessible. In that case, it will take longer to perform the work, driving the price up. Lastly, an electrician may ascertain that your switchboard needs to be replaced or upgraded or your property needs to be rewired to install the new powerpoints.
