Upgrading to an electric car can be a smart and sustainable decision. Make sure your home is equipped to handle a charging station with the help of our certified electricians.
What is Residential Electric Car Charger Installation?
Electric cars require specialized chargers, called EV (electrical vehicle) chargers. These chargers draw higher amounts of electrical current than are normally available in your home. This means that EV chargers require wiring from a certified electrician to ensure they’re safe and effective for your electric car’s needs.
Why Would I Need a Certified Electrician For Residential Electric Car Charger Installation?
Although it’s possible to install EV chargers on your own, it can be dangerous because of the increased voltage involved. Additionally, a certified electrician can help you select the right EV charger for your car’s needs and your home’s capabilities. Because EV chargers use higher voltage, a certified electrician can also help you manage the power draw on your home’s electrical service, so you know what to expect.
