FAQs About Electric Vehicle Charger Installation Projects

Info

If you’re interested in investing in an electric vehicle charger installation at your property, then it’s likely that you have plenty of questions/concerns on your mind.

These are always necessary when simultaneously investing in an electric vehicle, so countless new owners and shoppers have concerns about how they’ll potentially charge their new EV when it’s not being used.

Below are some frequently asked questions (FAQs) oriented around EV charger installations:

What does the electric vehicle charger installation process entail?

The very first thing you’ll need to do is get a quote for your installation. Residential electricians in your area can do this, and sometimes you can even get quotes via phone calls. But typically it’s best to have an electrician come to your property and see firsthand what’ll be needed for the installation to be successful.

The next step is to confirm your charging location. Usually this will be in your garage or wherever you park your EV.

The next step is to choose your charger type. Most people who are looking to place an EV charger in their homes want a Stage 2 charger.

Lastly, you’ll need to make charger/receptacle choices. You’re inevitably going to have plenty of choices when it comes to your charger, and your electrical team will help you decide which units and styles are best to match your unique needs.

How much do EV chargers cost to buy and install?

EV charger costs vary dramatically. If you’re looking to install an EV charger in an attached garage, you’re looking at anywhere from $700-2,000 just for the charger and another $800 or so for the installation costs.

If you have a detached garage with not electrical paneling, then you’ll also need to dig a trench in order to obtain an adequate amount of power to your detached garage. This will of course add to installation costs.

A lot of people also simply need to upgrade their home’s electrical paneling in order to properly accommodate a new EV charger, and this can add to installation costs as well. So it really depends upon your unique scenario in terms of deciphering overall installation costs!

How long will it take to charge my EV?

Charging times for EVs largely depend upon the type of charging system you invest in. If you invest in a Stage 1 charger, it’ll take around 16 hours for a full charge.

However, the more popular Stage 2 charger type only takes around 6-8 hours for a full charge. These charges also provide around 300 miles (depending upon your unique EV model).

Stage 3 chargers are incredibly fast, and can fully charge your electric car in under an hour!

How long will my EV charger last for?

Just like any other electrical appliance, EV chargers simply don’t last forever. But the good news is that they’re currently projected to last around 30 years!

Do EV chargers require routine maintenance?

Although every EV charger should be checked every now and again for wear and tear, it should avoid damages if taken care of properly. This means you’ll need to properly store your EV charger when it’s not in use, and you’ll have to ensure that it remains clean.
