3 Types of Electric Vehicle Charger Installations

There is no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to electric vehicle chargers. In fact, there are three different levels of charging: 

Level 1

This is the standard charger included with the car. Level 1 chargers utilize a common 120-volt household outlet, so they can be plugged in anywhere. Adding between 3-5 miles of range per hour (RPH), this is the slowest charging equipment available. Most car owners find that Level 1 charging isn’t suitable for their daily charging needs.

Level 2

A smart and more convenient way to charge an electric car is with a Level 2 charger. Sold separately from the vehicle itself, these chargers have a slightly more complicated setup and often require the help of an experienced electrician to install correctly. Level 2 chargers are plugged into a 240V outlet and provide 12-80 miles RPH. An electric vehicle with an empty battery can be completely charged overnight!

Level 3

The fastest type of EV charging available, Level 3 chargers provide 3-20 miles per minute. These chargers use direct current (DC) and require 400-900 volts of electricity to function. For that reason, they are not recommended for home use. Not only do they come with a hefty price tag that the average homeowner can’t justify paying out of pocket, but they require more power than many residential electrical grids can provide. Additionally, not every EV supports Level 3 charging.

Different Level Car Chargers That We Install

The most sought-after among EV drivers, Level 2 chargers offer faster charging solutions. They can fully charge an electric vehicle in just a few hours. Level 2 chargers are ideal for home installations as they provide a perfect balance between speed and cost. Furthermore, they are compatible with a majority of electric cars available today.

Keefe’s Air Conditioning, Heating & Electrical will ensure your Level 2 residential EV charger is integrated seamlessly, whether it’s in your garage or any other location in your home.

Benefits of Residential EV Chargers

So, you’ve finally made the leap and invested in an electric vehicle. Congratulations! But the journey doesn’t stop there. With the transition to electric cars, the need for a reliable EV charging station at home has become paramount. After all, you wouldn’t want to get stranded without a charge. The good news is that there are many benefits to investing in a professionally installed car charger for your home, including:

  • Convenience: One of the primary advantages of a residential EV charger is convenience. Instead of waiting at public charging stations, you can simply plug in your vehicle at home, ensuring it’s ready for your next trip.
  • Cost Savings: Although there’s an initial installation cost, in the long run, having a home EV charger can save you money. Electricity costs at home are often less than public charging, especially during off-peak hours.
  • Safety: Charging at home reduces the risk of damage or tampering that might occur at public charging points. Also, quality services like those provided by Keefe’s ensure safe charger installation.
  • Efficiency: With a level 2 charger, the hour charged is significantly reduced compared to standard chargers, meaning you can get back on the road faster.
  • Increased Home Value: As more people shift to EVs, having a home charging station can boost your property’s value.
