Electric vehicles are constantly gaining traction in consumer markets, and manufacturers are introducing new models every year. However, not every home is equipped to handle the needs of an electric vehicle. While some drivers can rely upon publicly available chargers, residential car charger installation is a valuable tool for homeowners who wish to maximize efficiency and minimize their carbon footprint. Let’s discuss some of the benefits of car charger installation:
Installing An EV Charger At Home
Car charger installation can add convenience and speed to your everyday life, but choosing the right location for your new charger is vital. Many homeowners decide to install their EV chargers in their garages or on their driveways. Consider what is the most convenient for you. Manufacturers create both indoor and outdoor-rated chargers, so make sure to install the right equipment. You must also consider any HOA rules or regulations that would impede installation or impose changes to your design.
Charging Speed Is Key
Knowing the charging speed of your charger is essential. Before you even begin the installation process, you must determine which EV charger is best for your car. Choose a unit that offers a charging speed that fits with your vehicle and your lifestyle.
Proper Circuit Size
The capacity of your electrical circuit will be key in the success of your charging installation. Depending on the other appliances and devices on the circuit, a professional electrician may recommend a dedicated circuit for your EV charger. When EV chargers are installed on insufficient circuits, homeowners can experience routine breaker trips and electrical issues.
Ensuring A Safe Installation
It is imperative that you have a trusted professional install your EV charger. Any type of electrical work should be done by an expert, and this is no exception. Professionals will be able to assess the situation and ensure the entire process (and the resulting car charger) is smooth, successful, and safe.
