Do I Need an EV Charging Station in My Home?
Unless you can charge your vehicle at your place of employment or have other accessible options near your home, it will be essential to have a charging station at home so you can easily charge your car while you sleep. While you will be paying for the cost of electricity, charging your car at home will still cost significantly less than paying for gasoline which can fluctuate week to week. The cost of electricity is also less subject to change and can be planned for more efficiently.
An electric car that is charged exclusively at home will use about the same amount of energy as it does to cool your home or run a water heater for the same amount of time. When you install an EV charger and use it for eight hours each day, you will notice an increase in your utilities, but this will quickly be offset by the money you save by not purchasing gasoline or oil changes regularly. These costs can be even lower if you don’t drive many miles each day or don’t need a fast charge. The electric vehicle charger installation that you need will depend on many factors such as how far you drive and how fast you need a charge.
Choosing the Right Location
You will probably want to charge your vehicle either in your garage or outside on your driveway. Each home and garage are different, so this will affect where you can install the charger. If you are installing it in your garage, we will help you find a location that is convenient for you. Chargers that are going to be installed outside need to be rated for outdoor use, so this will limit your options.
Will I Need to Upgrade My Electrical Panel?
You may need to upgrade your electrical panel if it is unable to support your new charging station. Service upgrades can be performed by Safe and Sound Electric at the same time as your EV charger is installed. We may also recommend the installation of a subpanel depending on your situation. An upgrade will make it safe to use your charger, and it may be a convenient electrical improvement to have in place for any other appliances you may wish to purchase in the future.
At Safe and Sound Electric, we are determined to provide the best electrical service in the Riverside area. Many of our customers in Riverside are searching for more efficient alternatives to transportation and are turning to us for charger installation.
