EV Charger Installation

Add a Charging Station at Home with the Help of Our Electricians!

The world is entering a new era of transportation. As the capabilities of electric vehicles (EVs) increase, we are seeing more of them on the road and a greater demand for EV charger installation in people's homes. While electric cars offer an environmentally-friendly alternative to traditional vehicles, it’s not always easy to charge an electric car from your home’s standard sockets. Recognizing this challenge, Mister Sparky® is dedicated to providing comprehensive EV charger installation services. We are empowering homeowners to effortlessly set up home EV charging stations that ensure a faster and more convenient charging experience compared to standard outlets.

Types of EV Chargers

An electric vehicle’s ability to quickly recharge depends on two things: a home’s electrical supply and the EV charging unit used. EV chargers are broken down into three levels. Level one chargers are the slowest, while level three chargers are the fastest.

Level 1 Chargers

A level 1 charger comes standard with an electric vehicle. Because they use a home’s standard outlet, these chargers are most useful for slow overnight charges.

Level 2 Chargers

Level two chargers do their job faster but require an electrician for installation. These chargers need a dedicated 240-volt circuit to supply a current strong enough to charge an electric vehicle at a faster rate. Level 2 chargers can add approximately 70 miles of range for each hour of charging! These are the most popular options for home charging.

Level 3 Chargers

Level 3 EV chargers are incredibly fast but require an industrial supply of power, making them difficult for homeowners to install. These charging stations can recharge an electric vehicle’s battery to 80% in only 30 minutes. Level 3 chargers are not typically possible to install at home.

Choosing the Right EV Charger

Identifying your needs is the most crucial step in charging your electric car at home. While many people are fine with charging their car overnight with a level 1 charger, many prefer the flexibility provided by a level 2 charger.

When our team comes to your home, they’ll help with the following issues related to EV charging stations:

  • Deciding your home’s ability to support a level 2 charger
  • Picking the right charger for your car model
  • Upgrading electrical systems as needed for safe operation
  • Home EV installation according to National Electrical Code and local codes
  • And more!

What Amperage Do I Need on My Breaker Panel for EV Charger Installation? 

To install a Level 2 charger, you will probably need a 150 amp or 200 amp service. For 100 amp service or less, your EV or Tesla charger will probably take up too much capacity for your home. You may need to consider an upgrade for lower amp service. We recommend going with a 200 amp service to ensure you have enough capacity to handle the electrical demands of your home. 

When we come to your home, we’ll provide the prompt and friendly service you need to know we’ll do the job right! Our team is always on time, highly-trained, and provides a 100% satisfaction guarantee for your peace of mind.

*Services for electrical vehicle chargers may vary by location. Please get in touch with your local Mister Sparky for more information.
