Extra Power Point Electrical Outlets

With ever increasing technology, our demand for electrical outlets has also increased. A common mistake is to overload a socket with too many devices and this trend results in our electrical systems being under great stress as each device fights on another for power. Adding additional power sockets to key areas of your home such as your living room makes for a safer more appliance friendly home – not to mention having to ask if you can remove a phone from charging to charge your own!

Power Point Installation FAQs

When should one replace their power point sockets?

Power point sockets should be replaced when you notice that they are not performing properly, such as holding the plug securely or being visibly damaged. Power points have a life expectancy of around 20 years, but this can always differ depending on how the plug has been used. Always contact an electrician for power point installation if you think your socket requires replacement.

What are the different kinds of power points?

We have various power points in Australia, with some common ones being single power points, and double power points. Single power points may be installed when size is an issue, while double power points are often more common and are designed for two appliances to be connected at the same time. You may also have power points with an additional switch to turn a light or fan on, which can help reduce clutter. Our electricians are happy to advise you which kinds of power points should be used for your purpose.

What should I do if my power outlets aren’t working but my lights are?

If your power outlets are not working but your lights are still on, you should check for a tripped circuit breaker. If the circuit breaker has tripped, try to reset it by turning it off and then on again. If this does not fix the issue, call an electrician for an electrical inspection. 

What are the standard power outlets in Australia?

The standard power outlets in Australia are 3-pin power outlets rated at 10Amps. This is the most commonly used type of power outlet in Australia and is suitable for most household appliances. Our electricity normally runs on 240V and 50Hz in Australia as well.

What are extension leads?

An extension lead is an electrical cable with a plug on one end and one or multiple sockets that can be used to extend the reach of an existing power outlet. An extension lead, or an extension cord, can be used to provide power to appliances that are out of reach of a power outlet.

How many electrical power points do I need?

The number of electrical power points required depends on the size and layout of the house, as well as how many appliances are needed. An assessment of the house and an electrical plan will help determine the number of power points required to be installed.
