4 Reasons to Install a Home EV Charger


Keeping your EV at home is safer for both you and your car. Charging your EV in a public space can take a while. In addition, while your EV is topping up at a public location such as a parking lot, your vehicle is exposed to risks including theft, vandalization, and natural elements such as hailstorms. Topping up your electric car in the comfort of your own home helps avoid all these potential dangers.


Topping up your electric vehicle at home is a stress-free perk of EV ownership. By installing a home EV charger, you can control when you can charge your car and for how long. Gone are the days of having to leave early for work to fuel up. Or you have to use your Satnav to find the closest petrol station. Now, you can charge your car outside your front door.

What is EVSE?

Level 1 – Basic, “slow,” “trickle” charging – Residential – 120 volts AC (alternating current) – Typically will take 3-7 Hours for PHEVs and 9-20 Hours for BEVs. Vehicles plug directly into a typical 120‐volt outlet. Electrician will evaluate the circuit to determine if upgrades or modifications to the property’s main electric panel or circuits are required, and it should be a dedicated circuit (no other appliances should use the same circuit.)
Level 2 – Fast, or “quick” charging – Residential and commercial – 240 volts AC – Typically will take 1-3 Hours for PHEVs and 4-8 Hours for BEVs. Requires a charging station. Electrician will determine if upgrades or modifications to the property’s main electric panel or circuits are required.
