Electricians charge around $80/hr for power point installation services. If the job is more complex than usual, the price can go up to an average of $88/hr. However, if it does not require too much work, the rate can go down to approximately $65/hr.

Where do these prices come from?

All prices stated in this article are based on FY 2016 pricing data compiled by ServiceSeeking.com.au. The figures resulted from a comprehensive analysis of quotes submitted by Power Point Installers on the site from July 2015 to July 2016.

Factors that affect power point installation prices

Just like with other electrical tasks, there are elements that determine the cost of a power point installation job. Here are some of them:

  • Location
    Installing power points to internal walls is generally more expensive than installing power points to external walls. This is due to the amount of materials, tools, and workload needed for the former.
  • Accessibility
    If it will be hard for your electrician to access the area where you want your power points to be installed, then expect a higher job cost.
  • Work type
    Is it a new installation task or a replacement? New installations typically cost more than replacements. However, that’s not always the case. If the electrician discovers other problems, the rate for replacement work could still go up.

How you can get the most out of your money

Many electricians have an hourly rate, but most (if not all) power point installation jobs don’t even last an hour. If you want to make the most of the money you’ll be paying, you could also let your sparkie take care of other electrical jobs in your home.
