Are you considering installing a home EV charger but need clarification on the process? You might be tempted to follow the DIY route by consulting YouTube videos and doing the installation yourself. However, we strongly advise against it. Only trained and certified technicians should undertake this task to ensure that the equipment is installed safely and properly. At Integrated Building Systems, we specialize in custom electrical installations for homes and businesses throughout the greater Milwaukee area, and we are here to help you with your home EV charging station installation needs.
Choosing the Right Voltage Level for Your Home EV Charger
One of the critical factors we consider when installing an EV home charger is voltage level. There are three levels of charging to choose from: 120 volts, 240 volts, and DC fast charging. Each level provides a different range of miles per charging hour, depending on your vehicle and your charging needs. The first level provides 3-5 miles of range per charging hour, while the second level provides 10-20 miles per charging hour. The third level offers an impressive 80% charge after just 25-30 minutes of charging, making it ideal for commercial use. For residential settings, the first two levels are the most common, and our expert electricians can help you select the best one for your home.
Proper Wiring is Essential for Your EV Charging At Home
Another critical factor in installing EV home charging stations is proper wiring. Our electricians at Integrated Building Systems will take care to ensure we complete your wiring correctly, and we will address and fix any loose, faulty, or otherwise messy wiring. Proper wiring is essential for the safety and longevity of your equipment, and we will ensure that it is done right.
Using the Right Equipment
Another reason to choose professional electricians for EV charger installation is our access to the right equipment. At Integrated Building Systems, we bring everything we need to install your home EV charger, and we clean up afterward. We use only the highest quality equipment to guarantee your installation is reliable and long-lasting. We will also make sure that your installation is up to code and meets all safety standards.
The Pre-Assessment Process
As part of our installation process, we conduct a pre-assessment to ensure that the area for installation is suitable and that any concerns are addressed upfront. This step is critical for a proper EV charger installation to go smoothly and to protect your investment in your home upgrade.
The EV Charging Tax Credit for Your Home EV Charger
Did you know that you might be eligible for an EV charging tax credit if you have purchased a form of environmentally-friendly transportation? You might also qualify for a tax credit toward other items associated with electric vehicles, including home charging stations. However, your chances of qualifying for the tax credit improve with a proper installation that is formally documented by professional electricians such as ourselves. We can help you take advantage of this tax credit and save you money on your home EV charger installation.
