There are many benefits that come from choosing to drive an electric vehicle (EV). They are more cost effective and they are better for the environment. If you have taken the plunge and decided to make the switch from gas to electric, there are certainly some changes you may have to make to enjoy all the benefits that come with driving an EV. Burley Electrical Services is here to talk about why having an EV charging station installed at your home makes the most sense.
Charging Electric Vehicles at Home is Convenient
The thought of simply charging your EV at public charging stations all the time, is something that can take up a good portion of your spare time. They usually aren’t going to charge your vehicle that quickly and can take away from the joy of driving an EV. All EVs have the ability to be charged using a normal 110v plug. However, if you want to get more that 2-3 miles per hour charge rate, you are going to want to have an upgraded 220v plug installed in your garage. This gives you the ability to charge your vehicle much quicker. It will be easy to plug your vehicle in at night and be ready to go the next day.
Control Over Your EV Charging Cycle
You are going to want to charge your vehicle’s battery with care to get the most out of your EV. Most EVs give you the ability to customize your charging cycle with the help of an app that links up with your car. This way, you can control the times that it charges and only charge during off-peak hours. You can also control how full you want to charge your battery pack as it is best for the battery to keep it charged between 20%-80%. When you are charging at home, you can more easily control the charging and maintenance of your vehicle’s battery.
It is Safer to Charge Electric Car at Home
Anytime you are charging your vehicle at a public charging station, you run the risk of damage happening to your vehicle. Many of these charging stations are located next to places to eat and shop so that you don’t have to sit in your vehicle to wait and charge. The only problem is that you have left your vehicle out in the open. When you are charging from the comfort of your own home, you don’t have to worry about any damage to the car as it is where it is the safest.
