What You Need to Know About Installing Power Points
The increased demand for Power Point Installation has come from the increase in the number of gadgets and appliances compared to what we had in the past. This has lead to an increase in expectations of power points and an increase in the number of power points required within certain rooms and throughout a house, including indoor and outdoor plug points.
This increase in demand often results in overloaded power points, which can be a major hazzard to your home, business and family. Overloaded power points can result in switchboards tripping or burntout switches and fire hazzards.
One way to reduce this effect is to ensure that a house has the correct number of power points installed correctly across the house. It is also important that the switchboards aree capable of managing the load.
Only a licensed electrician may install power points. Sharpe’s Electricians are all certified electricians and are experienced in correctly advising and installing power points so that you have peace of mind knowing that your power points in your house are safe to use.
Installing one powerpoint or replacing a single power point with a double powerpoint might not be a problem. If you need to install several power points, you could overload your electrical system. That could lead to power outages or even a fire.
Power Point Installation – Adelaide
Common issues faced with old power points
If you live in an older home, your electrical wiring may not be able to handle the load placed on it by modern appliances or computers. In that case, you may need to have your home rewired. If you’re installing several power points throughout the house, you may also need to have an electrician inspect your switchboard. Switchboards are there for a reason. Should any of the following happen, you may need to replace the switchboard:
- Fuses blow when more than one or two appliances are running
- Lights flicker for no reason
- Fuses seem to need replacing more often than in the past
A Sharpe electrician won’t do any power point installations if they feel the wiring or switchboard can not handle the extra load. They will suggest rewiring, installation of a new switchboard or improvements of your existing switchboard. If you’re in doubt, you can always get another quote, but if two or more electricians recommend the same thing, take their advice seriously. Electricity isn’t something to take for granted. It must be able to handle the load or there could be serious problems.
