Adding new electrical sockets is actually fairly simple to do, and will take an experienced electrician relatively little time. Even though this is a simple project, it's not one you should try to undertake yourself. A special set of skills is needed when working with electrical wires if you are to avoid electrocution or even death. Don't worry, you won't have to pay and arm and a leg to get this work done, as we have a number of highly skilled professionals in our extended network who are also affordable.
Average electrical socket installation costs will depend on the number of outlets you wish to add, the condition of your existing wiring, and local building regulations. In some cases, you may need to upgrade your electrical breaker box, which would result in an additional charge for materials and labour. Adding a new breaker box really doesn't cost that much extra, so if the current one is somewhat outdated, it might be best to go ahead and replace it rather than having to worry about doing it later.

Q. I need a lot more sockets installed, is this possible?
A. It's more than likely possible to increse the number of sockets in your property but it will depend on your existing circuits. You should never overload an electrical circuit by adding too many plug socket points as it coud potentially be dangerous and keep on tripping your electrical system. A professional electrician will be able to tell you the amount of new sockets that can be safely installed into your existing circuits, and and advise on any action that can be taken if this still isn't enough for your needs.
Q. Adding a new electrical socket seems like an easy task - should I do it myself?
A. Installing an electrical socket yourself is not recommended, as you risk injury or death when dealing with live wires. An improperly installed socket also increases your risk of fire. To ensure your safety both now and in the future, always rely on a professional electrician to install sockets.
