Do I Need an EV Charging Station?
With an EV home charger installation by W3 Electric, you can be self-sufficient. You won’t have to lean on public charging stations at all. Plus, you won’t have to stick with that job you can’t stand just because they have a charging station you can use. Unless you have convenient and accessible options close to home, an electric vehicle charger installation at home is essential for any electric vehicle owner.
Yes, you can expect your utility bills to take a hit now that you charge a vehicle for about eight hours every night. However, the expense of increased electrical usage pales in comparison to how expensive (and inconsistent) gas can be. Comparatively, you will still be saving money versus a car that relies on gas. Electricity is a very stable resource with stable pricing, so you can more easily plan for your fuel expenses, as well.
Benefits of an EV Charger Installation
There are a number of reasons to call W3 Electric for home EV charger installation besides convenience. With an electric vehicle charger installation, you will boost the value of your home, power your electric vehicle for less money, and charge your vehicle faster. Best of all, by using electricity instead of gasoline, W3 Electric’s installation helps you go green, too!
Which EV Charger Should I Get?
W3 Electric can install two different types of home charges for your EV-Level 1 and Level 2 chargers.
Level 1 chargers use a relatively small amount of power, and they’re very inefficient when it comes to charging your vehicle. With W3 Electric’s Level 1 charger, you can expect to wait 30 or so hours before your car is fully charged and ready to go. The big plus with Level 1 chargers is that they generally do not require professional installation. Unfortunately, they won’t do you much good once you have one.
Level 2 chargers, on the other hand, are far more powerful and efficient. With a 30 to 40 amp Level 2 charger installation by W3 Electric, you can expect to charge your vehicle in around three hours. Also, Level 2 chargers have extra functionality if you need it. Features like Wi-Fi connectivity and anti-theft protection are available on some chargers. Wi-Fi enabled chargers will allow you to manage your charging station remotely, and anti-theft protection will help you safeguard your investment.
However, selecting a Level 2 charger isn’t so simple. There are other factors W3 Electric needs to consider before installing it, like the location of your station, the length of the cable, special features, and the capacity of your electrical panel.
Do I Need to Upgrade My Electrical Panel?
All Level 2 EV chargers need a 240V connection to function. However, W3 Electric also recommends that your electrical circuit rates for 25% greater amperage than your charger’s output.
So if the charger you’re interested in is rated at 40A, your breaker should be rated at 50A. You will also need an empty slot in your breaker. If your setup doesn’t fulfill these three requirements, you will need to invest in a higher capacity electrical panel.
The Best Location for an EV Charging Station
If you want an EV charger installation, you want convenience. And for the ultimate convenience, you most likely want W3 Electric to install your charger inside your garage or just outside by your driveway. We can make that happen!
Just remember that not all chargers are rated for outdoor use, but there are options available. We can work with you to find the best spot possible. If, for whatever reason, you decide to move out in the future, W3 Electric can work with you to remove the charger, so you can take it with you to your new home.
