Electrical Vehicle Chargers

Electrical Vehicle Chargers

One of the most popular draws of electric vehicles is the reduced cost of driving. In addition to their lack of carbon emissions, they are generally more economical to drive, especially for commuters. Another benefit: you never need to take them to a gas pump. However, you do need to charge them every night, and that can become tedious if you’re using a regular wall plug. The sheer size and capacity of the average electric car battery means they’ll take ages to charge under standard voltage.

However, our Northern Virginia electricians can change all that by outfitting your home with a state-of-the-art electric vehicle charging station. These devices pour power into your electric vehicle at a much faster rate, ensuring a faster and more complete charge, as well as better care for your vehicle’s batteries. If you drive an electric vehicle, installing one of these may be the single best upgrade you could make to your home, as it will help you save both time and money.

FAST, SAFE ELECTRIC VEHICLE CHARGING

Charging your electric vehicle with a normal wall plug is slower, less efficient, and even more dangerous than using an electric vehicle charger. The secret is many chargers function off a 220-volt electrical connection—double the voltage of a traditional wall plug. With double the voltage, your charger won’t have to supply too much current, thus making charging faster and safer. These systems often have other features as well, including software which monitors your battery’s condition, alerts you to any trouble, and could even give you smartphone control.

WHERE CAN WE INSTALL A FAST CHARGING SYSTEM?

Fast charging systems can be easily installed just about anywhere in your home that’s close to where you park each night. Many people choose to install them on the wall in their garage, as it’s close to where they park and within reasonable reach of a 220-volt line (if their home has one). If you park outside each night, we may even be able to help you install your charging unit in an outdoor location! Many of these units are weather-resistant and can safely last for years while sitting outside.
