Keep Your Powerpoints Safe Avoid Overloading

Are you living in an older home with limited power points? We get it! Extension cables and bulky power boards are not only a trip hazard but also a total eyesore. The Solution? Install double powerpoints throughout your home.

If you’re in the Brisbane or nearby areas (like Alderley, Ashgrove, Bardon, Newmarket, Paddington, The Gap), Allyn White Electrical. has got you covered

We know many people rely on power boards to accommodate all household appliances, but let’s face it, they create a cable mess and can lead to power overload. Switching to double powerpoints with USB sockets not only ensures you have enough outlets for all your electrical needs throughout your home but also keeps your space tidy and safe. 

Replace Your Old Single Powerpoints and add value to your home

Unfortunately, older homes just didn’t have the option to have double power points installed, which limited the number of appliances that can be plugged in at any time. Say Goodbye to those single powerpoints

Upgrade to double powerpoints and add some serious value to your home, particularly in rooms such as the kitchen, dining, bedrooms, and bathrooms. With sleek modern designs available in matte black, chrome, or brass finishes, you can give your space a stylish upgrade while improving functionality.

Wondering What Happens When you Upgrade To A Double Powerpoint? 

In most Brisbane homes, it’s a breeze to swap out a single powerpoint for a double one. But hold on! If you live in a solid brick home or plan to install double power points on an exterior brick or stone-faced wall, things might get a tad tricker. 

If you have a brick home, you may face hurdles installing the newer recessed or double powerpoints with a USB port. This could mean an additional cost for removing the brick to fit the double powerpoint.

While it might seem like a simple DIY job to remove a single powerpoint and replace it with a double powerpoint, there are many things that need to be considered:

Is there enough wall space for a safe installation of a double powerpoint?

Will you want a USB charging point in the switch?

Is the wiring safe?

Is the switchboard safe and up to current Australian Standards?

Here’s the scoop: DIY electrical work is illegal.  We don’t recommend you to do any DIY electrical work in your home to avoid potential electrical hazards. ⚡It’s a risky business, folks! Plus, if a DIY installed double powerpoint goes up in flames, your insurance might not cover it.
