Purchasing and using an electric vehicle is one way to contribute towards controlling the pollution caused by car exhaust. It creates the need to have a charging station at home that can allow a steady charge to replace the energy used during the day. At Key Electrical Construction, we have expert electricians that can plan and install a working charging system for your vehicle that is fast and reliable.
Home Electric Vehicle Charging Station Installation Experts
Trying to locate an electric vehicle charging station near your home can be a hassle. An electric car and hybrid varieties are convenient unless you suffer from difficulties of finding a way to keep them powered. It can take hours for your vehicle to become fully charged. Having a dedicated plug for the vehicle at the house would be ideal. It could charge while you rest from the day and wake up to a car that is ready to hit the road.
What you need to know before calling electric vehicle charging station installation experts:
- What type of EV is it, and what size?
- Where will the electric vehicle charging station be installed?
- Will it be charging inside a garage or outside in a driveway?
- How long will the EV cord need to be? EV cords range from 12-25 feet in length
- What is the distance the vehicle is driven? This determines the size of the charging unit needed.
Choosing the Right Hybrid Vehicle Charging Station
An electric or hybrid vehicle charging station is designed in one of two ways. The first method requires much of the conversion of electric charge to happen on your vehicle. You add the necessary components at the car dealership, and an electrician will install a separate 120-volt 20 amp circuit that will charge the vehicle. The other option is to install a dedicated 220 single phase grounded circuit, separate from the rest of your household electric circuitry. The vehicle will charge twice as fast using the 220 circuit.
