Why Choose a Home EV Charging Station?

The charger that came with your electric car is designed to plug into a standard 120v outlet. This method will work to charge your car but is extremely slow. It can take about 24 hours to fully charge your vehicle, which is not practical for daily driving. Installing a Level 2 electric car charger can provide the same amount of charge in about four or five hours. 

A home EV charging station is beneficial for: 

  • Convenience: A home car charger allows you to charge your vehicle while you are taking care of your family or relaxing at home at the end of a long day. 
  • Faster charging: A Level 2 charger will get your vehicle charged faster, so it’s always ready to go when you are. 
  • Saving money: Charging your car at home is significantly less expensive than using public charging stations to keep your vehicle charged. 
  • Battery life: Using a home electric car charger is better for the life of your battery, compared with constantly using fast chargers at public charging stations. 

Unlike the charger that came with your car, a Level 2 charger requires a 240v circuit. In addition to the charging station, you will need an electrician to install the 240v circuit. 

Comparing Level 1 and Level 2 EV Chargers for Your Home

There are primarily two types of EV chargers commonly used for home installation: Level 1 chargers and Level 2 chargers.

Here's an overview of each:

Level 1 Chargers:

  • Power Source: Level 1 chargers use a standard household electrical outlet (120 volts AC).
  • Charging Speed: Relatively slow charging compared to Level 2 chargers. Provides about 2 to 5 miles of range per hour of charging.
  • Installation: To install a Level 1 EV charger, mount it near a standard household outlet, route the cable, and plug it in. Ensure proper cable organization and consider consulting a licensed electrician.
  • Suitability: Ideal for overnight charging at home or in locations where faster charging is not essential.

Level 2 Chargers:

  • Power Source: Level 2 chargers require a dedicated 240-volt circuit, similar to what is used for large home appliances like electric stoves or clothes dryers.
  • Charging Speed: Faster charging compared to Level 1 chargers. Provides about 10 to 60 miles of range per hour of charging, depending on the charger's power output.
  • Installation: Requires professional installation by a licensed electrician. Involves setting up a dedicated circuit and mounting the charger on a wall or pedestal.
  • Suitability: Suitable for faster charging at home and is commonly used in residential settings. It's also used in public charging stations.

It's important to note that there are different models and brands of Level 2 chargers with varying power outputs. Some Level 2 chargers may also have smart features, allowing users to monitor and manage charging remotely.

Charger Installation 

EV charger installation starts with selecting the right charger for your home and vehicle. There are a wide variety of charging stations and electric vehicles on the market, and new products are released all the time. Making this decision can feel overwhelming. Your electrician can help you find the charger that is the best fit for your car. 

The installation of an electric car charger should be handled by a qualified electrician to ensure the work is up to code. Additional electrical work may be needed to complete the installation. For example, if you have an older electrical panel with no room for expansion, you could need a panel upgrade.
