What is a Home EV Charger?
A home EV charger is a device that allows you to charge your electric vehicle in the comfort of your own home. Unlike public charging stations, a home EV charging station provides the convenience of charging your vehicle overnight, ensuring a full charge every morning. Our home EV chargers are designed to be safe, reliable, and a perfect fit for any single-family home, townhome, or condominium.
How Does an Electric Vehicle Charger Work?
Technically speaking, an EV charger isn’t a “charger,” since the actual charger is located within your vehicle. Our electricians will install wall-mounted equipment that will supply 240 volts of electricity directly to your electric car. When you plug it in, the advanced technology in your vehicle converts the AC energy into DC power, which charges your vehicle’s battery.
EV Charger Types
There are various types of EV chargers available, and choosing the right one depends on your vehicle’s requirements and your charging preferences. From Level 2 EV chargers to Tesla Wall connectors, we have a range of options to suit your needs.
Level 1 EV Charger
A Level 1 charger is the most basic type, often coming with your vehicle. It plugs into a standard 120 V household outlet and is easy for charging overnight. The bad news is that this type of charger can take up to 50 hours to charge your car from empty to 100%.
Level 2 EV Charger
For faster charging, a Level 2 charger is a popular choice. It is the most common charger installed in residential properties. It requires a 240-volt outlet, similar to what large appliances use, as well as a separate circuit on your electrical panel. Level 2 chargers are often worth the expense because they charge the car much faster. You’ll get a full charge in less time than it takes for you to get a good night’s rest.
Tesla EV Charger
For Tesla owners, we install specialized Tesla EV chargers. These chargers are designed to work seamlessly with your Tesla, providing faster charging times and enhanced convenience.
Questions to Ask Before You Choose an EV Charger
Not sure what type of EV charger you need? Call us and ask one of our electricians! We can come out and take a look at the setup that you have at home. In the meantime, you can also consider the following questions before you call an installer to set up your charging station:
- Where Should The Charger Be Installed? – Will your charger be indoors or outdoors? Depending on your answer, you will require a different type of enclosure. For example, a NEMA 4 enclosure can be hosed down and is weather-resistant.
- How Much Space Do You Have? – Some EV chargers can be surprisingly large. For example, one option is 24 inches high by 16 inches wide. Smaller units may be half that size and others much smaller. Depending on the space available in your home, you may have a preference for a larger or smaller charger.
What to Expect During EV Charger Installations
Our installation process is thorough and includes assessing your home’s electrical system, determining the best location for the charger, and ensuring all permits and regulations are met. Then, we’ll start your EV charger home installation. Your charger will be ready to start powering-up your car shortly after we complete the job. After the installation, we’ll go over a few more details with you about how to best use your new charger.
We handle the entire process from start to finish, providing quality service and peace of mind. You can always trust our team to treat your home as if it was our own. We’ll go the extra mile to ensure your complete satisfaction with the work we perform.
