How to Prepare Your Home for an Electric Vehicle

Adding an electric vehicle home charger to your Wetumpka home can be a simple process. However, there are some nuances you’ll want to be aware of when you’re getting ready to add an EV to your garage. Here’s how to prepare your home for an EV:

1. Electric Vehicle Charging Batteries – Levels

For electric vehicle charging batteries, it’s important that you understand the different ways you can charge your EV. Most Millbrook homes have the ability to utilize Level 1 or Level 2 charging.

Level 1 charging is typically more compatible with most homes but it does take longer to charge your EV. On the other hand, Level 2 chargers are more involved, but they can charge an electric vehicle much quicker.

2. Declutter Your Garage

Cleaning out your garage can help a professional better understand your garage’s electrical system. From outlet locations to places to install a wallbox charger, decluttering your garage is a great way to ensure that you’re ready for the professionals to help.

3. Can Your Garage Handle an Electric Vehicle Charging Station?

Some homes may not have the ability to handle the added power usage needed with a Level 2 charging station. You’ll want to consider this before you begin shopping for an EV charger. Overloading your electrical panel could cause issues in the long run.

4. Have a Professional Install Your Electric Vehicle Charging Battery Station

Finally, it’s important to hire an electrician to asses your home’s electrical system. They can let you know if you’re able to have an EV charger installed. Once you’ve got the electrician’s approval, you can move forward with having your EV charger professionally installed.
