What are power points?
Power points provide the power supply for appliances. They are hardwired into your house and are usually placed for convenience. Power points are typically located in a wall, linked to the wiring that runs throughout the house.
To install a power point, an electrician must identify and extend the wiring to accommodate the new point. A hole must be placed in the wall, to allow access, and then a power point is linked up. To ensure the safety of the home, power points should always be on a circuit that is connected to a Residual Current Device (RCD).
Why should I use an electrician?
When it comes to home improvement, it can be tempting to try and save money by doing it yourself. There are many jobs that you can safely do without employing professionals, installing power points is not one of them.
Improperly installed power points carry the following risks:
- Injury or death by electrocution

Repairing power points
Sometimes, due to wear and tear and other factors, a power point stops working properly. This can cause damage to appliances that are plugged in to the power point and so we recommend not to use it until repairs can be arranged.
The team at ACE+ will identify the issue with the power point by testing it with specialised equipment. Once a diagnosis is complete, they can recommend the necessary action for a repair. In some cases, we may need to get into the wall to perform the repair. Our team will always talk through your options, to ensure that you are happy with the results.
