EV Home Charger Installation in Seattle
You can’t go a day in Greater Seattle without seeing an EV on the road! Who wouldn’t want an eco-friendly, money saving, and quiet car? If you are an electric car owner, Wire Craft can safely and effectively set up your home with a circuit for an electric car charger that will enable you to quickly charge your car efficiently.
Unfortunately, most standard wall outlets will take 24 hours to charge your vehicle but with a dedicated circuit, based on your car’s specifications, we can shorten that time to a couple of hours. Call us today for an estimate!
The Benefits Of An At Home EV Charger
Without an EV charger set up at home, you would need to drive to a nearby charging station and wait there. Make life easier by charging your car overnight at home and being able to go to work with a full charge!
Having an electric vehicle charger for your hybrid plug-in or EV saves you time and is much more convenient for your busy lifestyle. We all have places to be and going to a charging station just isn’t always going to fit into our schedules.
A charging setup at home also saves you money long-term. Although the upfront cost can be large, the long-term savings are real.
Level 1 EV Charger
Electric vehicles typically include a Level 1 charger and those can plug directly into a standard 120 volt outlet. This is the outlet you are used to seeing all-around your house. Level 1 chargers can be convenient since you don’t need to do any additional electrical work to charge your car. You might just need to find an extension cord to be able to reach your car and wouldn’t require the support of an electrician.
However, Level 1 chargers are slow. It could take 24 hours to fully charge an empty EV battery. So, we recommend electric car or plug-in hybrid owners to upgrade to a Level 2 charger.
Level 2 EV Charger
If you’re looking for one of those fancy chargers that your friend has in their garage, you’re thinking about a Level 2. These chargers require a 240 volt AC plug, which isn’t your common household outlet. Level 2 EV chargers typically do not come with the vehicle so you need to purchase one as well.
Once you purchase a charger, Wire Craft can provide the electrical expertise to make sure your Level 2 charger works. With this charger, your EV should be fully charged in 8 hours or less. Give us a call today for an estimate!
More Information on Electric Vehicle Chargers
On February 15th, 2023, the Biden-Harris Administration announced its latest set of actions aimed at creating convenient and reliable EV charging networks. The administration plans to have 500,000 EV charging stations across the nation by 2030 making it easier for electric vehicle owners. Even with an effort to make chargers more accessible, an at home EV charger is a must at this stage.
