Metricon Electrical Prices (2012)

23 02 2013

powerpointWe have been getting various people asking about the electrical prices in preparation for their electrical appointment.  The provisions provided in the standard Metricon price is very basic and it’s easy to spend $8000+ during your electrical appointment to add/upgrade items to something that is suitable to your standard of living.

You may also find our blog post about our Electrical Appointment useful.

Here are the prices based on our appointment back in February 2012 (prices may changed since then).

Lighting

  • Ceiling Light Points – $56 (The Nolan included 32, we added an additional 61)
  • External Light Points for light fitting – $56
  •  Junction Box (for future lighting connection outdoors) – $56
  • Extra Light/power Circuit – $168 (we had 5)
  • External light sensor to existing external light point – $105

Light Fittings

  • Stairwell light fitting – $98 to $117 depending on your selection
    • We selected the DL36 Slimline Fixed Square Downlight – $98
  • External floodlight 2 x 75W Halogen – $100
  • Exterior Fluorescent Up/Down Wall Light (EXLSST5108) Crompton Lighting – $125 (for the facade pillars and garage)

Tip:

We didn’t bother with internal light fittings, we will do this post handover as you will have a better selection.  For some comments about downlights see our Electrical Appointment post.

Switching

  • 2-way light switch – $51
  • 3-way light switch – $100
  • 4-way light switch – $145
  • Dimmer switch – $82

Powerpoints

  • Single powerpoint – $51
  • Double powerpoint – $61 (we added about 18)
  • Quadruple power point – $117 (we added 8 – expensive but better than having powerboards cluttering the floor)
  • Double powerpoint to island bench – $95
  • Double power point with extra switch – $158
  • Single weatherproof powerpoint (external) – $90
  • Double weatherproof powerpoint (external) – $112
  • standard metal plate finish surrounds to powerpoints – $13 (we did these for the tiled areas eg bathrooms)

Tip:

When looking at your powerpoint needs, think about areas where you can conceal stuff eg. having dustbuster powered inside a broom cupboard rather than out in the open.  If you put up Christmas lights, you may want to consider some external powerpoints.

  • Digital TV points – $134

Hi, thank you for sharing this information. It is very interesting as the prices are different in QLD for what appears to be the same/similar products!

We have found that each state seem to operate differently in terms of prices and promotions. So even the same base house price is different in each state. I think it comes down to local suppliers and contractors.
