Why Would You Need EV Outlets?
Rather than gasoline, electric vehicles run on electricity stored in a battery pack, requiring occasional recharging in order to maintain their ability to drive. However, charging an electric vehicle through a standard household outlet is dangerous and can cause a number of severe issues.
If you have an electric vehicle, it’s important that you install an EV outlet. Attempting to charge your car with a standard electrical outlet can lead to issues including:
- Overloading household circuits, which can cause a power outage or even start a fire
- Potential damage to the car’s battery
- Risk of electric shock
- Decreased charging efficiency
- Non-compliance with local regulations
Homeowners with electric vehicles throughout the Redlands, San Bernardino, and Inland Empire areas can turn to Sanborn’s for EV outlet and charger installation.
Benefits of Installing an EV Outlet
Faster Charging Times
Charging your electric vehicle on a standard 120-volt wall outlet (Level 1) can provide about 5 miles of range per hour. Installing a 240-volt EV outlet (Level 2), on the other hand, can provide about 25 miles of range per hour. Most electric vehicles can be fully charged in roughly 8-10 hours with a level 2 EV outlet.
Safe and Reliable
Using a standard level 1 outlet to charge your electric vehicle can cause a number of issues. These outlets were not designed to charge a car, but rather to power everyday electrical devices that require less power. Level 2 outlets, on the other hand, were specifically designed to charge your electric vehicle, making them a safer and more reliable option for your electric vehicle.
Increased Home Value
Electric vehicles are the future. As they continue to grow in popularity, the demand for homes with EV outlets will follow. Installing an EV outlet in your home will make it more attractive to potential buyers when the time comes to sell your home, as they won’t have to worry about installing the outlet themselves.
