Are You Considering a Home EV Charger? Let Us Install It for You
An investment in the future, an electric vehicle introduces many new methods of doing things that you might not be accustomed to if you’re coming from the world of combustion engines. How to maintain electric car batteries charged so they are ready for the day is one of the biggest problems faced by owners.
There are a number of ways to increase the distance an electric vehicle can travel on a single charge, but one of the best advantages of home EV chargers is the ability to charge privately and securely in your garage. Keep reading to learn about some of the advantages of an electrical vehicle charging station and then call Sonner Electric at 661-728-0126 for help.
Home EV chargers are practical
Public charging stations for electric vehicles are not nearly as prevalent or practical as gas stations. At least not yet. This forces you to map out your routes in order to discover them, and even then, they might not be available or be in use by another EV driver. You can often simply plug in when you need to and be set for the day with a home EVSE (electric vehicle supply equipment) in your own garage.
Enjoy more control with home electric vehicle chargers
Modern home car chargers have technologically sophisticated settings that you may adjust to time and maintain the battery in accordance with the requirements of your individual electric vehicle model. This helps you increase battery life and mileage range while giving you more control over the charging process.
Over time, an EVSE can save you money
Owning an EV has a number of costs, including: Costs associated with the car’s purchase, upkeep, and, yes, installing an EV charger at home, must all be taken into account. Additionally, it is more expensive to charge at a public station than it is to do so at home.
Thankfully, you can save money by charging your electric vehicle overnight (during off-peak hours) and you won’t have to worry about the variable (and frequently expensive) cost of filling up at the gas station. Although installing an EVSE will cost more up front, it will ultimately save you money and effort.
A home electric car charger can increase battery life
Your electric vehicle’s battery will eventually degrade, just like any other battery. But there are ways to extend battery life as much as feasible. Public charging stations are frequently those “rapid charge” locations, and although they’re wonderful in an emergency, relying on them can cause the battery to deplete more quickly. Your battery will last longer if you use a home charging station that you can set up and charge to the ideal level at the manufacturer’s suggested pace.
A home EVSE can increase the value of your house
Homebuyers will be more likely to choose your property and pay more for it (should you decide to sell it) if they know that you already have an EVSE installed so they don’t have to. This is because electric vehicles are becoming more and more popular.
Help the earth by contributing to reducing emissions
Of course, one of the best benefits of using a home EV charger is that you are helping our planet and our community. The average reduction in CO2 emissions from replacing a gas-powered vehicle with an electric one is 1.5 million grams, or about 4 fewer flights between Washington, D.C., and Orlando, Florida.
