Electric Car Charger Installation South Jersey

Electric cars are no longer just the way of the future: they are the here and now. You probably know this already when you go for a drive or even a walk and notice how many electric and hybrid vehicles are out on the road.

The surge in popularity of electric cars is the result of many factors. They are becoming more affordable, they are becoming more efficient and more people are interested in becoming more energy aware. Yet, despite all of that, there is one thing that you probably don’t think about when you want to buy an electric car. And that is how you will charge it.

You will need to hire an experienced South Jersey electrician to handle your electric car charger installation in South Jersey. While there are plenty of articles and YouTube videos that tell you that you can do it yourself, the reality is you will be putting your new car and your home in danger by not hiring a professional.

What are the benefits of having an electric car charger installed in your home?

Electric cars come with a host of benefits for both owners and the planet. However, the one thing that can be a little difficult to adapt to is having to charge your car, instead of relying on the convenience of gas. And if you are planning on relying on electric charging stations to charge your car, you will have an even harder time adapting. That is true even if you have a charging station right around the corner.

Opting for electric car charger installation in South Jersey will make your life so much easier.

  • You will be able to travel farther each day by starting with a full charge.
  • You will have the convenience to charge whenever you get home.
  • You will spend less time driving looking for charging stations.

With benefits like that, the question is why wouldn’t you choose to have an electric car charger installed in your home?


Electric Car Charger Levels

There are three different levels of electric car chargers you should know if you already own an electric car or are thinking about buying one.

Level 1

The Level 1 electric car charger is generally the charger you will get when you purchase the car. It uses a standard outlet and looks very similar to a standard extension cord. This type of charger generally recharges around 4 miles of power per hour, meaning to get a full charge on most electric cars will take at least 30 hours.

Level 2

The Level 2 electric car charger is the other residential option. It uses a 240 volt outlet, which is the same outlet size used by an electric dryer, water heater and other kitchen appliances. Widely viewed as the best option for charging your electric car at home, Level 2 chargers recharge between 12 and 30 miles of power per hour, meaning it will only take between 6 and 12 hours to get a full charge. This makes it a much more efficient and practical charger. Level 2 chargers will require a South Jersey electrician to make updates to your existing electric in most cases.

Level 3

The Level 3 electric car chargers are those used at commercial charging stations. They are commonly known as DC Fast Charging and they use 480 volts, which is why they are not used in residential settings. They provide charging at a rate of 3-15 miles of power per minute, meaning you are able to get a full charge rapidly.
