What to Think About Before Installing an Electric Car Charger
Having a new EV car charger installed is an exciting prospect since it can save a lot of hassle and money. However, all residents should carefully think about certain elements before they select a charger. Depending on the type of car, as well as the available amperage, homeowners may be able to have some chargers installed but not others. Many would prefer faster levels of charging, but these units may be more expensive. Consulting with one of our expert electricians is the best method of finding the optimal system.
A few of the most significant factors to consider when selecting an EV charger include:
- Whether you want Level 1 or Level 2 charging
- Whether a home can support a standard single-phase or a three-phase outlet
- The available amperage at the property, usually 16 Amp or 32 Amp
- If alternating current (AC) or direct current (DC) will be used
- Whether tethered or untethered charging cables will be installed
- Any special features for control or security
The Difference Between Level 1 & Level 2 Chargers
One of the primary distinctions between Level 1 and Level 2 chargers is their rate of charge. Level 1 chargers tend to use a lot less voltage and amperage, but the problem with this is that they take a lot of time to charge. This might not be an issue for those who do not drive very often or those who can charge with the help of a smart system. By converting a supply of solar energy into electricity, residents may be able to charge their vehicles faster.
Those who do not have this option or do not want to wait for extreme lengths of time should select Level 2 chargers instead. Whereas Level 1 charges only have a rate of four miles range per hour, Level 2 chargers can charge anywhere between 12 to even 60 miles range per hour.
How to Choose Between Tether or Untethered Charging Tables
Deciding between an untethered or tethered charger greatly depends on a car owner’s lifestyle. Those who travel long distances regularly would benefit from untethered chargers since these can be taken elsewhere. These chargers offer flexibility and ease for people who have more than one vehicle. However, single chargers are more economical and useful for those who have one car and primarily charge their automobile at home. Talk to our technicians at Absolute Power Electrical Contractors for more support about which one to choose.
