Electric vehicle charging is slowly hitting the mainstream market. However, many homeowners are thinking twice whether to install EVs in their garages. However, we highly advise you to use public chargers for now. Here are four facts about home EV charging that all homeowners should know about before deciding to call on a certified technician team to install their chargers.
The Price is High Regardless of Charger Levels
Whether you're to install a level-one 1.4kilowatt charger or 140kilowatt per 30 minutes’ supercharger in your garage, the electricity cost is high when you install one. Home electric vehicle charging saves you so much time having to line up charging stations. However, you'll pay an amount just as high as a new Tesla vehicle every 140-kilowatt charging.
Public Charging Stations Are More Practical
Even if you have to line up to charge your vehicles, public and corporate electric vehicle charging stations are more practical when it comes to costs. Furthermore, installing highly-rated home EV chargers can cause fluctuations in your electrical systems. In doing so, overloads can cause fires despite the best efforts of your electrical installation team.
You'll Need to Leave Your Vehicles Charging Overnight
After electricians install your home EV charger, you'll need to leave your vehicles charging the entire night. Because superchargers are too expensive to own for homeowners, it's better to use level one 1.4 kilowatt vehicle chargers because of their low risk and electrical demand to charge your vehicle.
