What to Consider When Considering an EV Charging Station Installation

It is important to carefully think about the type of charger you want to install. Not all models and makes of cars can use any brand of charger; for example, Tesla vehicles can only operate with charging stations directly designed by Tesla. 

There are other key elements to think about, however, which you may not have been aware of initially, ranging from the distinct levels available to you to the length of time a certain station will take to charge your vehicle. By keeping these components in mind, you will be able to have the peace of mind that your charger will be up to your high standards after it is installed.

Some aspects to consider when deciding on the right EV charger for your home include:

  • What your property’s existing electrical panel is able to handle
  • The number of cars that your charger will be supplying energy to
  • The speed at which you want your car to reach its full charge
  • The overall price of the installation and the savings you will benefit from
  • The location where your charging station will be mounted
  • The length of cable you desire to have in order to reach the connection

Scheduling Rapid Repairs for Malfunctioning Chargers

If you notice that the station is charging your car more slowly or is not working at all, or if you have ever seen small sparks or smelled a burning odor, it is critical to call dependable electricians right away. 

What Is the Lifespan of an Electric Vehicle Charger?

A typical EV charger usually has a lifespan of 5-8 years, which is why you should begin to keep a sharp lookout if your station is reaching this expiration date. 

What Are the Types of EV Charging Outlets?

There are three types of EV charging outlets:

Level 1 EV Outlets

Level 1 EV outlets will work for electric vehicles with smaller batteries, such as PHEVs (plug-in hybrid electric vehicles). Because these chargers are less powerful, the standard EV car battery will take longer to recharge. If slow charging time is an issue, consider having a Level 2 EV outlet installed instead.

Level 2 EV Outlets

A Level 2 EV outlet is currently the fastest and most effective way to charge your electric vehicle at home. This type of outlet will cut your EV battery charging time in half. EV outlets that have more power than a Level 2 outlet are considered a commercial outlets and are not intended for home installation.

Level 3 EV Outlets 

Level 3 EV outlets are the type of EV chargers you will find at public charging stations. The voltage of these chargers is much higher and instead of using alternating current (AC) like Level 1 & 2 EV outlets, Level 3 charging uses direct current (DC). They are unable to be installed in residential homes for safety reasons. 

What Is the Most Common Type of Home EV Charger?

Homeowners need Level 1 or Level 2 EV chargers. These chargers can be installed on a dedicated circuit similar to your washing machine, dryer, and other major household appliances.
