What do sockets and switches installation services include?

Trained and certified electricians work on socket and light switch installation tasks so you won't have to compromise you and your home's overall safety. They can assemble wirings and cable, connect them to power sources, and inspect if the electricity is flowing adequately right after. Thinking of booking our switch installation service? Here's what you can expect:

Powerpoint installation

Before installing your appliances, it's crucial to secure enough power points to support the electricity flow. Electricians can help you plan, install, and replace or add powerpoints to maximise your area. They start by inspecting your place to identify specific spots where you'll likely need power sockets. The installation process typically involves:

  • unscrewing the cover plates
  • retesting the power source
  • connecting extra cables to existing electrical outlets and stretching them to different locations
  • rewiring cables to the new electrical socket or powerpoint
  • Light switch installation

Light switches are responsible for connecting your electrical lights to the power source. If you need to replace an existing light switch, your electrician can disconnect them for you. Keep in mind, however, that the replacement switch needs to have the same functionality as the old one.

We can help install new light switches if you're in the process of building a new home or renovating your bathroom or kitchen. The process mostly involves rewiring and connecting new cables to the power source and mounting new faceplates. In case you want multi-purpose electrical lights, you can also request for dimmer switch installation.

Outdoor electrical socket installation

Professional electricians can also install outdoor sockets on your balcony, patio, or turf. This way, it's easier and safer to connect your appliances, especially if you're planning to have an outdoor kitchen or barbeque area. 

It's also essential to consider the size of the landscape area, the structure conditions, and all the equipment you're planning to utilise. Electricians can handle the drill, connect cables from indoor to outdoor wall, and rewire your new outdoor electrical outlets accordingly.
