Power Point Installation Service

Request A Call Back

It’s pretty frustrating when a home doesn’t have enough power points. You end up with wires and multi-plug adapters running everywhere, which as well as being unsightly can become a safety hazard. No one wants to jump over cords across the kitchen or office just because there aren’t enough plug points for extra laptops or appliances. 

Luckily, Glenco has the solution. Our Sydney electrical services team has been installing power points in homes and businesses across Greater Sydney since 1988, and we can do exactly the same for you. Contact us on 02 9700 9996 and we can organise an assessment of your home and the best path forward for power point installation. 

What to Consider with Power Point Installation

Only Use Local Skilled Electricians

As with any process when you’re dealing with electricity, DIY is not the answer. You want a Sydney electrician who is qualified to perform the job at hand. When you ring Glenco, you know you’re ringing a company with years of experience, as well as all the right qualifications and licenses. With our lifetime labour warranty, you know you can trust us with your electrical power point installation. 

An Electrical System Upgrade May Be Required

Particularly if you live in an older home, you’ll want your qualified Sydney electrician to check that your current electrical system can accommodate more power points. If you install several power points and your system can’t cope with the load placed on it by modern appliances such as computers, it will lead to power outages and possibly even a fire. 

This is why we recommend only getting authorised and accredited electricians to assess your home and install your power points. Our electrician will be able to tell you whether your current electrical system can support the new power points you wish to install, or if you need to get your entire home rewired. 

Check Your Switchboard

Your professional electrician will also need to check your switchboard before they begin the power point installation. If you overload the switchboard, it may overheat. This can cause an electrical  fire hazard. If you install power points and notice flickering lights or fuses needing replacing more frequently than before, there might be a problem with your switchboard. 

It pays to bear in mind that the modern appliances around our homes or businesses today use a lot of electricity. Computers, TV screens, printers, air-conditioning units and ovens all draw a lot of energy. If you’re adding electrical powerpoints and using many more appliances, your electrician will most certainly need to check if your electrical system and switchboard can handle the extra energy draw. 

Add Power Points or Use Extension Boards?

An easy way around creating more electricity outlets is to add more mobile power points using extension cords. This temporary solution comes with its own set of challenges, and we’d recommend getting a power point installation electrician in rather than relying too heavily on extension cords. Here are some things to consider with extension cords and power boards:

  • Extension cords and power boards often deteriorate over time so if they are not replaced frequently it can increase the chances of a fire or electric shock. Replacing your power boards on a regular basis can get expensive when compared to the one-off cost of installing a new electrical outlet.
  • When the cord part of an extension cord is covered over by carpets or furniture, there is no place for heat to escape, increasing the risk of fire.
  • If appliances with a higher wattage rating than the cord is designed to handle are plugged in, it can impact safety.
  • Plugging one extension cord into another to reach an extra distance is a common practice, but it can also be dangerous. Extension cords are only designed to be plugged in to a wall outlet, not another extension cord.
  • It’s common to see power boards overloaded with multiple appliances – this can put an unnecessary drain on the power board and potentially cause a fire or electric shock.

USB Power Points

If you’re looking to save on clutter and space, consider getting USB power points installed by Glenco. These handy fixtures allow you to plug your USB cable directly into the power point, bringing an element of convenience and efficiency to your home or business. USB power points charge devices extremely fast, so you can get on with your busy day. 
The cost of USB power points has come down a lot in recent times, making them a very affordable and stylish option. Get in touch with our power point electrician team on 02 9700 9996 and we’ll answer any questions you might have about them.

I would like to thank Glenco for their wonderful customer service, from quoting through to installation of my air conditioner, the process was seamless. I would especially like to thank your technicians Shareen and Liam. They were efficient and very quiet, but most importantly they left my home cleaner than it was when they arrived. I would highly recommend this business, well done Glenco.

Shareen and Keenan installed a new ducted AC for our house. They were on time, professional and cleaned up after. The installation went very smooth and we are extremely happy with the result; just in time for summer! Nathan Farr from the electrical team came and ran the new AC circuit. He was very friendly and communicative of how he was going to run the cabling and it was all done in a very neat manner. Thank you team! I would highly recommend Glenco and will be using them again in the near future!

Glenco were very responsive to my request and booked my job immediately. Communication and updates were effective. Rohan (Glenco technician) effectively completed installation of five ceiling fans. He maintained social distancing and wore a mask the whole time and cleaned up when the job was complete. He was very professional and I would recommend his services in the future.
