Top Sockets and Switches Installation related questions

It's wise to install sockets in areas where you tend to use your appliances or equipment heavily. For example, you can distribute the outlets around your kitchen island for easy access. This way, you can quickly plug in your blenders, mixers, or coffee makers. Industry experts also recommend dispersing power points in your garage to support your power tools adequately.

Not necessarily. Electricians usually arrive at your doorstep, carrying the necessary tools needed for a particular service. For switch and socket installations, they'll likely require pliers, fishing tools, power drills and hammers, wire strippers, and screwdrivers. For good measure, they may need a voltage tester to inspect the electricity flow as well. In case you have any of these on-hand, you're free to lend your tools to your electrician. Otherwise, you won't have to provide anything beforehand.

If done by an expert, installations take roughly about 30 minutes. But if you need them to extend your electrical source to a new location or install more powerpoints outside your home, then it may take a whole day to complete. There are also rare occasions where they might need to visit your area the next day for further installations and testing.

Definitely! Taskers can lend a helping hand if your outlets aren't producing enough electricity to power your gadgets, or if you have noticed unusual sparks from your sockets. They can help troubleshoot issues and repair them as necessary as well. Some common socket problems include minor loose connections, worn-out receptacles, overloaded circuits, and tripping circuit breakers. If the problem is beyond repairable, they can also assist with replacing your power sockets and install a new one.

It depends on the type of installation service you need, and the regulations set by your local authorities. Usually, permits or licenses are required for new permanent wirings. They are also necessary when altering existing circuits or installing new outlets to different locations. While most minor replacements do not necessarily need special approvals, it is still advisable to get the job done by a licensed and insured electrician.

Aside from distributing electrical sockets around your house, Taskers can assist in redesigning your interior. They can also install new furniture and appliances to improve the functionality of your home. Taskers can even help you declutter your attic or storage areas, and create more usable space. If you want to build a home working station, you can also book a Tasker to set up home wifi and networking gears. 

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.
