How Much Does it Cost to Install a Power Point?

Last Updated: Mar 20, 2015 by

Topic: Electricians, Renovation Costs

It seems like there's never a power point where you need it. Sometimes you can get by without a new one, but the time comes when doing without is too much of a nuisance.  That's when it's time to call an electrician and have a new point point installed.

How Much Does it Cost to Install a Power Point?*

Before you reach the point of desperation and don't care how much the power point is going to cost, think about ways you can pay less for more electrical work. If you call an electrician and just want a single power point, their call out fee alone will average around $60 to $80. Their hourly rate can be anywhere between $40 to $85 with the average being closer to $65, but installing a single power point doesn't usually take an hour.

The next time you need minor electrical work, you'll have to pay another call out fee. To save money, why not find a few electrical jobs you've been putting off and let the electrician handle all of them at the same time? Electricians usually charge in quarter hour increments after the first hour, so instead of paying $65 or $75 for a single power point, you might only pay $100 or even less for two.

What can your electrician do for you?

Aside from power points, electricians can do dozens of installations around your house. Have you been putting off having a safety switch installed? That will set you back between $275 and $375, but is well worth the investment. Would you like a new light fitting? That costs about the same as a power point.

With the money you save by having an electrician do several small jobs at the same time, why not indulge yourself a little? For example, have the electrician install that power point at your desk or dresser you've wanted for recharging your phone. If it's part of a bigger job, it won't cost much and you'll be glad you had it installed every time your phone needs recharging.
