LAS VEGAS, NV, March 19, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- As technology evolves, fully electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids are rising in popularity. More and more people are looking at buying electric cars to save money on gas and reduce their carbon footprint making the capability of charging your car at home a huge priority for buyers. Blue Apple Electric is here to help you install your home charger.
When you buy an electric vehicle like a Tesla or plug-in hybrid, the vehicle will typically come with a 120-Volt charging cable designed to plug into any standard three-prong home outlet. The important thing to know is that the home charging cable included with your purchase tends to be inefficient and extremely slow.
If you have an older home or a weaker outlet, the best thing you can do would be to consult a Las Vegas residential electrician like Blue Apple Electric before you commit to buying an electric vehicle.
Many electric vehicle owners are looking into installing a powerful home EV charging station in their garages. It involves buying specialized Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) that has to be connected to a dedicated electrical power source. With an efficient charging station, your vehicle will charge quicker and it will be a dependable power source, unlike the three-prong charger.
The installation of an EV charging station is not a do-it-yourself project to tackle, it requires a dedicated electrical source. The wiring in the garage should be properly inspected and tested before moving forward with the installation. If you have an older home or a detached garage, this is especially important. The charging station draws a higher voltage (commonly 240 volts or more rather than the standard 120 volt-cable included with your vehicle purchase.)
Unless you have a considerate amount of electrical experience, you should consult a Las Vegas electrician like Blue Apple Electric, rather than doing the wiring and installation yourself. Blue Apple Electric can get the job done properly and safely in a timely manner. Once your charging station is installed, you'll be able to enjoy faster charges and increased energy savings.
