Questions Before Installing an EV Charger At Home
One of the greatest luxuries of having an electric vehicle is the convenience of plugging your car in the evening and waking up to a fully charged battery ready for the day. Before installing an electrical vehicle charger, there are several factors you must consider about your lifestyle.
- What are you willing to pay to have the electrical vehicle charger installed?
- Does your electrical panel have the capacity to run a charger?
- How much electricity do you use monthly?
- What are the average miles you drive daily?
What Type of EV Home Charger Do You Need?
There are two levels of EVSE chargers:
Level one EVSE charging stations use 120-volt AC plug to charge your vehicle. This charger is roughly the same level of power used for most appliances installed in your home. This option is simple, but has slower charging times as it may take up to 30 hours to fully charge your vehicle. This option works perfectly with those who drive a lower average of miles per day.
Level two EVSE charger installations use a 240-volt plug similar to dedicated circuits you may have to run appliances such as a dryer. The advantage of having this is faster charger times, meaning larger milage for those who drive longer distances per day. Though this is a more convenient option it requires a special setup.
