Electric Vehicle Charger Installation for Your Home

Many car owners are forgoing traditional gas-powered vehicles in favor of electric vehicles (EVs). A typical concern is that there’s enough charge to get from point A to point B and back again, preferably without stopping in between. EVs, which are different from plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs), rely solely on charging stations to get their power. Frisbees in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, can install one right in your garage, providing convenient, easy access to a full charge without having to stop at an off-site charging station.

Types of Outlets for EV Charging

The standard home outlet uses 110V-120V. A Level 1 charging station uses a 120V outlet, which can charge your EV from zero to approximately 80% in upwards of 50 hours. Level 2 charging stations use 240V outlets, providing a much faster, more efficient charging time by taking your EV from zero to about 80% in as little as 4 hours.

Your EV can charge on a 120V outlet, but it will take significantly longer. Installing a 240V outlet speeds up the process, getting your EV ready in less time.

How EV Charging Works at Home

You can install a Level 2 charging station in many places around your property, but keeping it in the garage protects it from inclement weather and debris while conveniently being next to a designated parking space. The equipment must be installed close enough to where you park so charging won’t be cumbersome.

Charging your EV in your garage may require upgrading your electrical panel, especially if it’s been years since it was updated. Not doing so could be problematic, ranging from blown fuses to fire risks.

Can I Install an EV Charger Myself, or Do I Need a Professional?

It’s not recommended to install an EV charging station yourself at home. Any mistake with electrical wiring could be dangerous to you and your home during the installation process and at any point after.

A professional, experienced electrician should evaluate your current wiring and the electrical panel, perform the installation process in the correct spot, and assess the final charging station setup to ensure its condition. Knowing everything was done safely and accurately can give you peace of mind.
