Power Points

Are your power points looking a little worse for wear? Or maybe you’re interested in upgrading to a more modern power point or adding in some extra ones? Whatever your reason for wanting a new power point, the team at Upside Down is here to help.

Installing a Power Point

Do you have enough power points in your home? With more and more gadgets and devices in the home, many of us are finding that we need extra power points than we initially thought. Installing more power points is a simple and easy process a qualified electrician can do to enhance your home.

Power points should only ever be installed by fully licensed electricians. A licensed electrician from Upside Down can perform any and all power point services:

  • Repair existing power points
  • Upgrade old power points
  • Install additional power points
  • Test power all power points for safety

With many of us making the move to work from home, there’s never been a better time to upgrade to new power points. There’s more to power point upgrades these days than simply going from a single to a double power point.

Modern power points come in a range of different finishes so you can style them to suit your home. They come with more than just a place to plug the standard cord in too, with USB-A and USB-C points for easy use.

An electrician from Upside Down can install any type of power point to meet your electrical needs.

How to Install a Power Point

Only a licensed electrician can install a power point. When it comes to live electricity and wiring, there’s a lot of room for error if done incorrectly. By incorrectly, we’re talking about electrical fires and electrocution, so this job is best left to the professionals.

Here’s how a skilled and experienced electrician will install your new power point:

  1. Turn off power to the circuit where the new power point will be installed.
  2. Conduct a live electrical test to ensure no power is running through the circuit.
  3. Remove the existing wall plate if upgrading an old power point.
  4. Identify the current wiring setup so the new power point is installed appropriately.
  5. Connect the new wiring.
  6. Install the new power point to the wall and secure it in place.
  7. Conduct a safety test to check all is working correctly.
  8. Reconnect power back to the circuit.

You’ll be left with a safe and compliant power point that will last you for years to come.

Powerpoints FAQ

Do you have any questions about power points? We can answer all your questions.

You should replace a power point at the first sign of damage or electrical fault. If the outlet cover is cracked or there are visible scorch marks around the socket, replacement is necessary. If you notice sparking when inserting a plug, contact a licensed electrician at Upside Down to investigate the issue further. Your wiring could well be damaged or faulty.

A faulty power point outlet is one of the most common causes of an electrical fire. Age can be a contributing factor as the wiring breaks down and becomes hazardous. Overloaded power points, powerboards or old appliances are also a serious risk. Damaged, worn or frayed appliances, power points and power cords should never be used. The risk of an electrical fire is too high.

Socket and outlet mean the same thing. Essentially they are two sides of the same coin. Some would say a socket is where you plug in another object. That’s why there are power sockets and light sockets. But an outlet is something electricity comes out of - hence the power outlet. Both meanings are used for the same power point. It can certainly be confusing but both words refer to the same object.

Definitely. All new devices such as mobile phones, tablets, smart watches and more require USB points to charge. They are also increasingly not coming with adapters. The addition of a USB power point (or several) to the home provides an easy way for you to charge devices. There’s no need to hunt for an old adapter which is shared around, or to unplug the laptop which is on 10 per cent. Instead, you can charge a phone alongside other appliances, fast and efficiently.
