Why's an EV Charger Necessary?
There are limitations to using a standard outlet. While it can be done, the standard 12-amp, 120-volt outlet won’t charge the vehicle in a reasonable time. Even with it charging overnight, the vehicle will not be fully charged. In fact, drivers may only be able to get around 50 miles from the vehicle after it charges overnight on a standard charger. However, a level 2 electric car charger can make a huge difference and enable the vehicle to charge much faster. Since these chargers are 240 volts, they drastically decrease the time it takes to reach a full charge.
There are various level 2 chargers available, ranging from 12 to 48 amps. At 16 amps, it’s possible to cut the time it takes to fully charge the vehicle in half. At 40 amps, the vehicle only takes a sixth of the time to fully charge compared to a regular outlet in the home.
With a new EV charger, there are new possibilities, as well. For instance, these chargers include an app. It’ll be possible to check the current charge, set any delays that may be needed, and adjust the current used to charge the car if needed.
With an Electric Car Charger installation, it’s possible to go anywhere and not have to worry about relying on public charging stations, since the vehicle charges fast at home. With a level 2 charger installed by Milestone, you can do more with your electric vehicle.
The Issue With Circuits
The electricity used to operate the charger comes from the home’s electrical system. This passes through the electrical panel, so the electrical panel must have sufficient capacity to handle it. If the panel doesn’t, the result is that the circuits will trip or the vehicle won’t charge at all.
For the fastest chargers, it may be necessary to upgrade the electrical panel. If this isn’t desired, a smaller charger may still work to charge the vehicle faster without the panel needing to be upgraded. At Milestone, one of our professionals can review all of the options and help you determine what’s right for the home.
If the EV charger installation does require upgrading the electric panel, the experienced professionals at Milestone can handle it safely. We offer electric panel upgrades for a number of reasons, so we can give you a quote for the work that needs to be done.
