Install Double Powerpoints In Your House

Install Double Powerpoints In Your House


Do you live in an older home without enough power points? Extension cables and power boards are a trip hazard and an eyesore. If you need additional powerpoints, you can always install double powerpoints in your house.

If you’re searching for the best licensed electrician in the Brisbane area and surrounds (Alderley, Ashgrove, Bardon, Newmarket, Paddington, The Gap), look no further than Allyn White Electrical.

Many people use extra power boards to accommodate their wide range of appliances. However, power boards create messy cables and tripping issues from power overload.

A simple solution is to change your single power points over to double power points (with USB sockets). It will ensure you have enough power points for your electrical needs in each room. By hiring a professional electrician in Brisbane like Allyn White Electrical, we will help replace and test each powerpoint for your safety.

Replace Your Old Single Powerpoints

Many homes do not have enough powerpoints. If you live in an older home, you will find this especially true. Particularly in rooms such as the kitchen and home theatre, which have many appliances dependent on electricity. In addition, older homes often have only one socket per powerpoint, limiting the number of appliances that can be plugged in at any time.

Unfortunately, older homes just didn’t have the option to have double power points installed. That’s why many Brisbane homeowners are looking to swap out their single powerpoints for more useful double power points.

Add Great Value To Your House By Upgrading The Powerpoints

Check out for some inspiration online that will change the way you look at your powerpoints and light switches around your home.

What Happens When You Switch To A Double Powerpoint?

In most Brisbane homes, swapping out a single for a double powerpoint is quite simple. Unless you have a solid brick home or the double powerpoint is going on an exterior brick or stone-faced wall.

If you have a brick home, you may not be able to have one of the newer recessed or double powerpoint with a USB port installed. Or it may incur 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 room on the wall to safely install a double powerpoint?
• Will you want a USB charging point in the switch?
• Is the wiring safe?
• Is the switchboard safe?

We don't recommend you to do any DIY electrical work in your house to avoid any electrical hazards. Fires created from a DIY installed double powerpoint may not be covered by your insurance.
