EV Charger Installation
Owning an electric vehicle is the best option to choose when finding a solution for saving money on gas prices because it simply removes the costs of gas completely. Unfortunately, there aren’t many local options for charging stations for your electric vehicle, and your OEM charger port may not be strong enough for your individual needs. Integrated Building Systems’ electricians can help you with installing the perfect residential EV charging station for your electric vehicle for faster-charging capabilities.
Types of EV Charger Levels
Level One (120 volts):
This level uses power from the standard household outlets at 120 volts and is the charger that comes with your vehicle. The advantage of this is that no equipment installation is needed for this kind of charging; You plug it into a standard outlet, and it’s ready to go. The negative side is that the time it takes to charge your car is considerably slow (compared to other systems) at 3-5 miles of range per hour of charging.
Level Two (240 volts):
This form of charging is much quicker than the standard form that comes with your car. To a achieve this, an EVSE unit would need to be professionally installed. This is due to the fact that a standard home outlet can only provide 120 volts of electricity; whereas, level 2 chargers require 240 volts. With a new EVSE installation, you’ll be able to expect a much faster charging speed. A typical level 2 EV charger installation yields 10-20 miles of range per hour.
Because of the nature of the installation, it is required that you’re running 240 volts directly from your charger to your breaker box. In some cases, you may need to replace or upgrade your breaker box or electrical service panel to be able to complete the installation.
Level Three (DC high-speed charging):
DC charging stations are incredibly fast. The typical public electric vehicle charging station uses level three. This form of charging converts AC power to DC for lighting fast charging speeds. You can expect an 80 percent charge of your electric vehicle within 25-30 minutes from direct charging stations.
DC fast chargers are mainly for commercial and industrial usage whereas level 2 is suitable for homeowners in a residential setting.
