AB Electrical & Communications recently completed a job for a client who was looking to have a 240v power supply installed for a motorized awning. The client wanted to be able to easily control the awning, and a reliable power supply was essential for this.
What work was completed
To complete the job, the team at AB Electrical & Communications first had to locate a permanent power supply in the subfloor. They then ran cable in conduit from the location of the awning, down the wall and into the subfloor. The cable was then clipped across the beams in the subfloor to the location of the existing power. The team then isolated the power at the main switchboard so that the connection could be made. Once the connection was made, they reinstated the power and tested and commissioned the circuit to ensure everything was working properly.
The benefits of installing a new power supply circuit
There are several benefits to installing a new power supply circuit in a home or business. Some of the most significant benefits include:
- Increased Safety: One of the primary benefits of installing a new power supply circuit is increased safety. When an electrical load is added to a home or business, it is important to ensure that it has a dedicated power source to prevent overloading and reduce the risk of electrical fires. A new power supply circuit helps to prevent overloading by providing a dedicated power source for the new electrical load.
- Improved Reliability: Another benefit of installing a new power supply circuit is improved reliability. When an electrical load is connected to an existing circuit that is already being used by other electrical loads, it can cause issues such as voltage fluctuations and power outages. A dedicated power supply circuit ensures that the new electrical load has a reliable and stable power source, which can improve the overall reliability of the electrical system.
- Greater Flexibility: A new power supply circuit can also provide greater flexibility when it comes to adding or modifying electrical loads. For example, if you want to add a new electrical load to your home but don’t have an available circuit, a new power supply circuit can provide the additional capacity you need. Similarly, if you need to modify or repair an existing electrical load, a new power supply circuit can allow you to isolate that load and make the necessary changes without affecting the rest of the electrical system.
- Ease of Maintenance: Finally, installing a new power supply circuit can make it easier to maintain and troubleshoot the electrical system. When an electrical load is connected to an existing circuit, it can be difficult to identify and isolate any issues that may arise. With a dedicated power supply circuit, it is easier to identify and troubleshoot any issues that may arise with the specific electrical load, as it is isolated from the rest of the electrical system.
About the job
The job was completed at a home located on Bogotá Avenue in Cremorne Point, New South Wales.

Overall, the installation of a new power supply circuit is an important investment for any homeowner looking to add electrical loads to their home. It ensures the safety and reliability of the electrical system, and can make it easier to troubleshoot and repair any issues that may arise. If you’re considering adding a new electrical load to your home, be sure to consult with a professional electrician to ensure that it is done safely and correctly.
