EV Home Charger Installation
There are many good reasons to switch to hybrid or electric vehicles. Obviously, it’s an excellent choice for the environment as you decrease your reliance on fossil fuels. However, electric vehicles and their chargers are still a financial investment. You want to know that your investment is going to save you money in the long run. With an electric vehicle, you can save so much on petrol, especially in today’s world where prices are out of control.
Many people considering an electric vehicle might be unsure about whether they can keep their vehicle charged appropriately, and the answer is simple. Home EV charger installation gives you the freedom to charge your vehicle overnight, giving it a full charge for the next day’s driving.
There are, however, two types of home EV chargers, so it’s important to choose the right one for your needs.
Level 1 EV Charger
A level 1 EV charger is only suitable for hybrid vehicles. Level 1 chargers plug into a normal household power point, and as such, they can only handle a limited amount of electricity. For this reason, they aren’t suited to fully electric vehicles.
Level 2 EV Charger
A Level 2 charger is the best option if you own a fully electric vehicle. You can find level 2 chargers ranging from 7kW to 22kW, depending on how fast you need to charge your vehicle. They’re more powerful and require more complex installation because they need a dedicated power source – not just your regular power point.
EV Charging Station Safety
Certain EV charging stations, especially Level 2 chargers, require a 3-phase power switchboard. This is because they use more power than regular household appliances. The team at Sorted Electrical can upgrade electrical switchboards, making them ready for use with your new EV charging station. This ensures safe operation and protects your family, home and vehicle.
EV Charging Station Upgrades
If you upgrade your electric vehicle from an older model or an early hybrid, you might find your household EV charging station no longer meets your needs. If that’s the case, don’t worry. Sorted Electrical has the skills and expertise to upgrade your old charging stations or even replace them with new Level 2 chargers that work on newer model EVs.
