Why Should I Install an EV Charger in My Home? 

Installing an EV charger in your home offers numerous advantages for electric vehicle owners. Not only does it provide convenience and cost savings, but it also contributes to a more sustainable future. 

Here are some compelling reasons why you should consider installing an EV charger in your home:

  1. Convenience: With an EV charger at home, you can conveniently charge your electric vehicle without the need to rely solely on public charging stations.
  2. Cost savings: Charging your EV at home typically costs less compared to using public charging stations.
  3. Battery life preservation: Home EV chargers provide a controlled and consistent charging environment, which can help extend the lifespan of your electric vehicle's battery. This ensures optimal performance and longevity for your vehicle.
  4. Increased property value: Installing an EV charger in your home can increase its value and appeal, especially in a market where electric vehicles are becoming more popular.

What Type of EV Charger Do I Need at Home?

There are a few different types of electric vehicle chargers, but not all of them are designed for residential use. 

The three types of EV chargers include:

  • Level 1 charger: A standard wall outlet (120 volts) can be used with a Level 1 charger, which typically comes with your electric vehicle. However, it provides the slowest charging rate and may not be ideal for daily use.
  • Level 2 charger: For faster charging, a Level 2 charger is recommended. These chargers operate at 220 to 240 volts and require professional installation by an electrician. They offer higher charging speeds compared to Level 1 chargers, making them more convenient for daily use.
  • DC fast charger: DC fast chargers provide the fastest charging speeds and are commonly found at public charging stations.

When considering the type of EV charger for your home, consult with a residential electrician who can assess your electrical system, the charging speed you desire, and any specific requirements from your electric vehicle manufacturer. They will guide you in selecting the most suitable charger for your needs. We also offer electrical panel repairs and installations, rewiring, electrical repairs, and other services to make sure your system is prepared to meet your EV charging needs.

Can I Install My Own EV Charger?

When it comes to installing an EV charger in your home, it is generally recommended to hire a licensed electrician rather than attempting to install it yourself. Hiring a qualified electrician – such as those at Colwell Electric – ensures that the installation is done safely and in compliance with local building codes and regulations. Moreover, hiring an electrician may be required to maintain the warranty of the EV charger and provide insurance coverage.

Our electricians possess the necessary knowledge and expertise to handle high-voltage electrical work involved in EV charger installations, reducing the risk of electrical hazards or property damage. They can assess your home's electrical system, upgrade circuits if needed, and ensure that your electrical panel can handle the additional load. Their skills, efficiency, and ability to address any questions or concerns make them the best choice for a smooth and hassle-free installation process.
