Powerpoint Services

Turning on a light or charging your phone are common everyday tasks. So much so, we rarely ever think about what happens in order to generate the power to these appliances. So, how do we get that power? A powerpoint.

A power outlet, powerpoint or wall outlet, is a socket that connects an electrical device to an electricity supply and is essential in the distribution of electricity throughout your home. For some, socket and outlet are interchangeable.

In Australia, the standard powerpoint is Type I, with 230V voltage and a standard frequency of 50Hz.

It’s no secret that these days, sufficient access to electricity is a must!

Powerpoint Repair

To ensure your family’s safety, regular service and testing should be carried out to all wall outlets in your home. Our qualified electricians are experts in their field and will work to ensure small fixes don’t turn into larger problems in the future.

Whilst we all know prevention is better than a cure, sometimes overuse or electrical faults can cause a faulty switch or socket. If you experience any of the following, it could be indicative of a faulty socket and should be inspected if:

  • You have no power when connecting an appliance
  • There is heat coming from electrical sockets or wiring
  • Strange noises such as a buzzing or humming coming from powerpoints or wiring
  • Sparks that appear from your socket

FAQs - All you Need to Know about Powerpoints

Metropolitan Electrical Contractors reveal the answers to some of the questions you have about powerpoints.

Electrical outlets could be found on the market as early as 1885. The first patent for an American electrical outlet appeared in 1903 by Harvey Hubbel.

This patent featured 2-pin plugs and adaptors, reminiscent of what we use today.

You should consider replacing your powerpoint every 20 years or so. By this age, the wiring and insulation have worn down and pose the risk of electrical faults such as shocks or electrical fires.

If your powerpoint is showing cracks or isn’t working properly, regardless of its age, you should have it replaced.

Yes – a damaged electrical outlet can cause a fire. Sparks could catch internal insulation, or cause the plug and appliance to catch fire. Don’t risk any problems, call Metropolitan Electrical Contractors to replace and repair your wiring and powerpoints.

Definitely! Our trained electricians can provide the outlet and any necessary data cabling so you can update your home to be more versatile with USB wall outlets.

After a wild storm had caused the switchboard to break down Elliot followed through with the job from start to finish. He assured us that he would endeavour to get us back on the grid ASAP! That meant no lunch or dinner! Thanks for the light and heat again… Well done, Elliot! Would highly recommend 👌
