If you own an electric vehicle (EV), you know the importance of an EV charger. With respect to the options available, one can either charge their vehicle at a community EV charger located at a place of business or public place, or they can charge it by installing an EV charger at their apartment. The choice of using the type of EV charger (at home or commercial) depends on various factors.
However, installing EV charger at the apartment comes with various benefits:
1. Cost-effective: Instead of paying a flat fee every time you charge your electric vehicle, you can have unlimited access by installing one at your home. While you may see an increase in your electricity bill, it will still be more cost-effective than driving to a public charging station every time you need to charge your EV. Moreover, depending on your budget and need, you can choose an affordable home charging station. However, remember that the price of the charger and the installation fee (albeit a one-time cost) is separate. We recommend you hire a qualified electrician to install EV charger at the apartment.
2. Convenience: One of the biggest advantages of installing an EV charger is the convenience it provides. For starters, you don’t need to worry about keeping enough energy in the vehicle to drive it to the station, even if the battery is 100% drained, you can charge it immediately at home. Moreover, charging an EV takes time, even as long as six hours, hence, it is definitely more convenient to have the EV charger installed at the apartment so that you don’t have to wait such long hours. And, it is likely that the charging station may even have a waiting line, in that case, wait can become even longer! Hence, it is definitely more convenient and time-efficient to install an EV charger at the apartment.
3. Safety: It can be said that charging at home may be safer than charging your EC at a public place for various reasons. For example, you can never know if a charger is properly installed in public, however, you can be sure of the job done at home. Additionally, sometimes you may have to leave your EC while it is charging, and there is a risk of vandalism or damage to the car due to other reasons. By installing an EV charger at home, you can mitigate these risks to a large extent.
However, it is important to remember that to install EV charger at the apartment, you should have complete knowledge of which charger to buy, if the residential area where you stay allows installation of an EV charger, your apartment is equipped to provide the power required, etc.
But once you have an EV charger installed at home, you have a long-term, eco-friendly, sustainable solution for all your EV charging needs.
