How do you install an electric car charger?

To guarantee a secure and effective charging system at your residence, installing an electric car charger is a complex task that typically involves the following:  

  1. Picking a suitable location: Electricians will make sure the charger is placed in an area that complies with local laws and is easily accessible.
  2. Evaluating electrical capacity: To find out if your house can handle the added load of an electric car charger, an electrician will then assess the electrical capacity of your property. There’s a chance that improvements are required, such as adding a larger circuit breaker.
  3. Installing a separate circuit: Generally, a different circuit is needed for electric vehicle chargers. In order to ensure that the wiring satisfies local codes and standards, the electrician will set up the required wiring from the control panel to the charging point.
  4. Mounting the charging station: Electricians will mount the charging station for your electric cars firmly on a wall. If installed outside, they will make sure it is shielded from the weather and at the proper height.
  5. Connecting the wiring: In accordance with local electrical codes and the manufacturer’s instructions, electricians will connect the charger to the designated circuit. For safety, this also entails grounding the system appropriately.
  6. Testing the system: Following the installation, an electrician will carry out a comprehensive testing process to guarantee the charger operates safely and correctly. 

Why should an electrician install your EV charger at home?

It’s absolutely essential to have an electrician install your electric vehicle (EV) charger at home for a number of reasons.

  • Safety compliance: To protect your home and your loved ones, electric car chargers must adhere to strict electrical rules and safety requirements. Knowing this legislation inside and out, a professional electrician will make sure the installation satisfies these regulations. 
  • Electrical load assessment: To find out if your house can support the added load of an EV charger, an electrician can evaluate the electrical capacity of your home. An electrician can then provide advice and carry out any upgrades or adjustments that are required to avoid overloads that could result in damage or risks to the electrical system.
  • Manufacturer recommendations: The makers of various EV chargers have specified installation requirements. Electricians are educated to adhere to these specifications properly, guaranteeing that the charger operates at peak efficiency and keeps its warranty intact.
  • Maintenance and troubleshooting: If there are any problems, an electrician can fix and troubleshoot the EV charger to guarantee that it keeps working. Frequent maintenance inspections can also be carried out to spot possible issues early on and fix them.

Ultimately, working with a professional electrician for your EV charger installation ensures that you and your loved ones are safe from the installation risks, your new EV car is protected, and the charger itself will operate correctly.
