EV Charger Installation
Can You Use a Regular Outlet to Charge Your Electric Car?
If you have recently purchased a new electric vehicle, you may be wondering if you can simply plug your car into a regular wall outlet and charge it. Depending on the type of charger your vehicle uses, you actually may be able to. However, your car will charge extremely slowly, and your home may not be equipped to power such a large item. As such, it is highly recommended that you install an EV charger.

A professional electrician will assess your electrical system and determine if it can support the electrical demands of a car charging system. If it can, the wall charging outlet will be installed. If your system cannot support the charger, your panel size may need to be increased. Either way, the team at Doug Palmer Electric can help you get a charger installed for your electric vehicles.
What You Should Know About Electric Car Charger Installation Cost
The price one person will pay for electric car charger installation can vary, based on the type of charger that is being installed, the condition of a person's electrical system, and where the charger is being installed. Obtaining an estimate is the best way to determine how much your electric car charger installation services will cost.
Why You Should Not Complete EV Home Charger Installation on Your Own
Online videos and tutorials may make it appear as though installing a car charger on your own is easy. However, if the process is not done correctly, an electrical fire can start or you can damage the battery of your electric car. This is a task that is best left in the trusted hands of a licensed and insured electrician.
