Are you always finding you don’t have enough power points in your home? With the increase of appliances and systems running on electricity many houses, especially older buildings, don’t have enough power points to support our modern lifestyles.
To compensate for not having enough power points or not having a power point in the right location we tend to reach for double adapters, power boards and extension cords. Using these can cause both a tripping hazard when cords are run across the floor and a safety concern when power points are overloaded beyond their intended capacity.
Having a power point available where you most need it can streamline your lifestyle and save you time and hassle. Consider a power outlet where you drop your keys and phone when you come home so your phone can be charging while you are not using it or additional points in the kitchen so you can keep frequently used appliances out and ready to go to save time when cooking. It seems logical but many properties were not built to cater for our current power needs.
Increase the value of your home
Addition of extra power points makes your space more versatile – your spare bedroom may be the ideal home office space to a potential buyer who will be looking for the convenience to plug in computers, printers and chargers. Upgrading your existing power points to modern styles can add to the look and feel of your space, keeping it stylish and uncluttered while still being functional.
Power points may seem like a simple DIY job but can cause a safety risk for a home handyman trying to do the job themselves or for their loved ones if the job is not done properly. A qualified electrician can ensure your power point installation or upgrade is checked, safety tested and integrates with your existing electrical wiring correctly.
