If you’re thinking about buying an electric vehicle, it’s worth considering a home charging unit.
Thinking of getting an electric vehicle? You’re not alone, espically with the insane costs of fuel. According to a recent survay 60 per cent of people would consider going electric when buying their next car, and the most recent motor industry data shows a 19 per cent jump in EV sales over the past year.
It’s not surprising that public EV charging stations are increasingly popping up across the country, but charging at home is often more convenient. Having a dedicated EV charger at home means you don’t have to leave the house to juice up your car, and you can get a full charge overnight.
Where should I install the charger?
The most logical spot is the garage or carport, but the ideal location is up to you. Consider which side of the garage or carport you want the charger – check where the charging port is on your EV, and factor in whether or not you usually reverse your car into the space.
You don’t need a great deal of room.
Do I need to upgrade my power supply?
We will need to install a dedicated circuit from the switchboard – the the location of the charger install. We’ll need to determine if you have a single-phase or three-phase connection.
If your switchboard is equipped with a three-phase connection, it means that the conduit that connects to your charger is bigger and can charge your EV faster than with a single-phase connection.
the most difficult part of the install will be the cable pathway from weather we can go through the ceiling, under the floor or through the garage.

Is it safe to leave your EV charger plugged in for long periods?
Generally it's fine to leave an EV plugged in. Modern Electric vehicles have internal devices in place to prevent the battery from being overcharged. So, leaving it plugged in is perfectly fine.
