Have you made the switch from a petrol vehicle to an electric one? Or are you planning to soon? The qualified electricians here at Armitage Electrical have all your electric car charging at home needs covered!
Having a suitable charging station at home is a must when you consider it’s the place where people spend most of their time. It is by far the most convenient location to charge your EV!
With the popularity of electric vehicles on the rise, we field enquiries from Brisbane homeowners every week wanting to understand what’s involved with setting up an electric car charging at home – and the good news – it can be done relatively easily!
In this blog we talk you through some of the considerations, how to pick the right type of charger for your EV needs and what to expect cost-wise.
EV Home Charger Installation
The qualified electricians at Armitage Electrical can install a wide range of EV chargers, including Tesla and VW.
It’s important to remember that home chargers that are hardwired into your home’s electricity need to be installed by a professional electrician who is licensed and insured (that’s us by the way.)
The installation process also involves running a dedicated circuit from your electrical switchboard to the charging terminal.
How to Pick the Right Electric Vehicle Home Charger
There are many domestic car charging stations available, so our team can also help you to select the option that is best suited to your needs and car, or provide an electrical upgrade so you are not limited in your choice.
How Much Does it Cost to Install an EV Charging Station at Home?
The cost to install your charging station at home will depend on a few factors, including:
- The size of charger needed
- The distance from charging station to your home’s existing switchboard
- Whether you need a switchboard upgrade
For customers with larger solar panel systems, running costs can be offset if you charge your vehicles during peak periods. Plus, you can also have your charger set up to run on off-peak metres to reduce costs further.
