Who needs new power points?
Many people only pay attention to their power outlets when they notice obvious signs of damage – but there are many reasons to reach out to your local power point installation electricians to take action. Upgrading your electrical outlets shouldn’t wait until you see sparks flying. If you recognise any of the following warning signs, then it’s time to pick up the phone.
- Most of your outlets don’t work: If you’re constantly looking for the “good” power point, then you’ll benefit from outlet repair or installation.
- You constantly trip over extension cords: Extension cords are a handy way to get power where you need it, but if you find cords running throughout your house, you can save yourself a tripping hazard by upgrading your power points.
- Your circuit breakers trip (a lot): Power points with diminishing efficiency may cause your circuit breakers to trip which is more than a frustration, it’s a sign your outlets have seen better days and you’d benefit from an upgrade.
- Your power outlets are hot to touch: Your power points shouldn’t be heating your home. If you notice the outer plastic feels warm to touch, this is a sign that the internal wiring is worn down and will need replacing.
It’s also worth noting that you don’t need to wait for something to “go wrong” to upgrade your power points. Many Sunshine Coast homeowners are transitioning from single to double power points, or adding cutting-edge USB charges to improve their home’s livability.

How much does power point installation cost?
The average cost of installing new power points falls between $80 to $135 per hour – though this covers labour only. Adding in power points and wiring can increase the price, though the final figure depends on the type of powerpoint you are installing. Newer, USB-friendly models will cost more than a traditional single outlet. As an average, you’ll pay $72 to $92 per single power point, $77 to $98 per double powerpoint and $150 to $220 for a smart powerpoint. With all that said, your needs aren’t average so average prices won’t be right for you.

How long does it take to install new power points?
The time it takes to install new power points will depend on the number of outlets being added as well as the complexity of the job. Consider that older homes may require extra wiring work to ensure your new power points don’t overload your switchboard. Newer homes, in contrast, may have less electrical concerns to address. As a rule of thumb, a single power point can be installed in roughly 20 minutes. For specific timelines, reach out and speak to a member of the DYFA Electrical team.

Frequently Asked Questions About Power Point Installation on the Sunshine Coast
Can you relocate my power points ?Kara2022-06-08T07:09:12+08:00
Every home has a handful of power points that make you think “huh?”. If your home designer has come up with some interesting locations for your outlets, there’s a good chance we can relocate your power points and install them where you need them most. Whether you’re setting up a new home theatre or simply removing a power point that’s always stuck out like a sore thumb, we can help.
Will a USB outlet charge my devices faster?Kara2022-06-08T07:08:33+08:00
A USB socket will charge a USB-compatible device faster than a traditional outlet because it gets more current than a standard will charger. For example, a standard power outlet typically delivers up to 5 volts at 1,000 milliamps. In contrast, a USB power point can deliver up to 5 volts at 3,000 milliamps. Don’t worry if you’re not big on maths (we don’t blame you), that just means a USB-designed outlet will charge your smartphone, tablet or device significantly faster than a traditional outlet.
I have an older home, should I be worried about my power points?Kara2022-11-10T20:36:51+08:00
Sparks, the smell of burning plastic, and cracks in your outlet casing are obvious signs of a problem (whether you live in an older home or not). However, we recommend organising regular electrical maintenance services to make sure your home is safe. A routine electrical inspection will make sure your Sunshine Coast home or business’s wiring and power point components are in good working order and don’t pose a risk to you or your family.
