Point of Attachment Repair, Replacement & Installation Sydney
The electrical Point of Attachment (commonly called a POA) on your home refers to the bracket which holds your aerial mains wires which come from the street power pole, to the point where it connects to your consumer mains via your mains box. The Point of Attachment is commonly mounted on the eve or roof of your home in close proximity to your electrical switchboard or fuse box. The Point of Attachment is an important device as it is required to hold many kilograms of tension from the weight of your aerial mains cables, and do so in a safe manner. At True Local Electricians we see many Point of Attachment’s which have failed over time and resulted in your power lines coming down and a loss of power to your home. If you have suddenly lost power we recommend checking your Point of Attachment and consumer mains connection for any damage. In emergency scenarios True Local Electricians provide 24hr emergency service to Sydney and the Sutherland Shire for all Point of Attachment repairs and replacements.
