What is an EV Charger?

‘EV charger’ is simply a term for any electric car charging points, whether that is a home charger or a charging point installed on a business’ property. Without an electric car charger, you do not have an easy way to charge up your electric vehicle unless you use a conventional cable.

What are home EV chargers?

A home EV charger is simply any electric car charging point that you install at home in Bourne. People who own electric vehicles tend to have a home charger so that they can keep their electric car charged overnight.

Why are chargers useful?

While some electric vehicle types can charge from a normal cable, not all can. Even the electric cars that can charge through a universal socket will charge faster (and more safely) through a dedicated home charger.

What else do they offer?

A home charger installation might also come with an electricity supply meter for judging how full your electric vehicles are or checking how much your EV charging has cost you.

They are also more suitable for smart charging systems and can give you a cost-effective, cheapest time-to-fully-charge rate.

EV Charger Installation Process in Bourne

Installing a charger for electric vehicles means getting the home charger installed, tying it into your power supply and testing that it works. However, not everything is as simple as it sounds.

Brick or Plaster Wall

The charge point needs to be a suitable permanent structure that can support the charge point’s physical body. A flimsy wooden wall might suffer, whereas a home charging point on a brick or plaster wall is much safer.

Safety

The home chargers themselves also need to be installed safely. There has to be no trip hazard and no electrical connections that could easily backfire into the electricity supply. EV charging naturally also needs good water protection.

Mains Power

EV charging systems are a conduit between your mains supply and the electric cars that you charge. They rely on having that power source to function correctly.

They need to connect to the mains, or another major electricity supply, to work. Electric car manufacturers are assuming that the home charge point is going to be installed there and build their vehicles around it.

Fuse Board

The fuse board used in your home may change how you can charge your car. An old board may require the installation of a new isolation switch by one of our professionals.

We can give you a trained installer that will be able to work with your current garage wiring or order a new, more reliable board if the existing one is not going to work.

Cable

The cable should be neatly clipped to the wall in a convenient place, out of harm’s way. Even if the cable is not fully neatly clipped, it needs to be safe enough to avoid harming the car or its users.

The excellent installer staff that we send to our clients are experienced enough to keep cables safe, out of the way and installed to a high standard of safety.

How fast you can charge an electric car at home

Different electric cars charge at different rates and charge points in Bourne, but EV drivers ideally want as fast of a charge point as possible. Electric car home charging is important for keeping the car powered when you are not using it, so fast home charging is often the best.

Charging Rate

Each electric car home charger will have a different charging speed. Pod point models might use a different system to a dedicated charger, for example.

To maximize charging speed, you want the zero-emission vehicles to be charging under the maximum amount of electricity you can give them.

Smart Charging

Some charge point installation options in Lincolnshire use smart charger systems, which takes in more details about the car’s current charge and uses it to manually adjust EV charging rates.

These are much more complex than just a power cable, though, so the cost increases alongside it.

Specialist EV Charge Point Installation in Bourne

Our experts are capable of installing almost any charger you need and can make use of plans like the Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS) to secure you a government grant where possible. This allows you to get home charge points installed much more conveniently.

Government Grants (Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme)

Grants like the OZEV grant are important for reducing the cost of the new chargers. Even if the reduction is only minor, it can help you install a better EV charging system than you could afford previously.

Models

We can check individual models to find the one you need most. For example, the Pod Point line has a lot of Pod Point chargers, as well as a Pod Point app that goes with them. We can look at the Pod Point EV charging options to find one that will charge your car efficiently – without going over budget.

Features

There is no handy guide to all EV charging brands out there, but our expert staff can find and install one that matches your needs.

For example, if you want a Wi-Fi enabled charger like the Pod Point, then we can find the Pot Point design that would be best for your Wi-Fi car charging requirements (and the Pot Point app).

At Home EV Charger Installation, we can assist you on the best options available. Make sure you contact us today for a number of great Home EV Chargers in Bourne Lincolnshire.

Cost of installing a dedicated home charger

Installing an EV charging point in Bourne, whether it is a Pod Point and the Pod Point App or something more straightforward, will cost you. However, the exact cost depends on what you install and what kind of features it ends up having.

The amount that you need to pay can have a huge impact on what you end up buying, so do not take it lightly, even if you can afford it. Function should always come before form where possible.

Untethered or tethered home charger?

If you install an untethered charger, then you get a charging box that requires a separate connector between you and your car. This allows you to easily swap the cables out for different lengths as needed or store it separately.

A tethered charger has its own cable, allowing for easier EV charging at the price of having the cable present at all times.

Neither of these is a bad EV charging option, but they can adjust the costs involved and change how effective each installation might be for different things.

Do all electric cars use the same plug?

There are at least five or six different plugs that a typical electric car could use. Some are more common under certain car brands or in different places, so having the right charger is important.

This also means that you can’t rely on normal plugs forever since there may eventually be cars without an adapter that require a dedicated kind of charging cable.

Knowing which plug your car uses is a good idea, just in case you accidentally decide to try and get an incompatible model without an adaptor to make it work.

Can you speed up charging?

The installation of special ‘rapid chargers’ is the best way to get your car charging faster. A Nissan Leaf, for example, might charge in less time with a charger installation like that, allowing you to get a fully-charged vehicle faster.

However, an installation like this can also have much higher installation costs, making it a trade-off that not everybody wants to take.

Should you choose the option with the most features?

Chargers can have a lot of extra options and features, but not all are useful. It is easy to get lost in terms like “Wi-Fi enabled earth rod single phase charger” when you simply want something that can fill up your car overnight.

Choose an option that will fit with your needs after installation. For example, if you use your car daily, a faster option might be best, but people who do not drive often might be fine with a slower model.

What Now?

If you are looking for experienced and reliable charger installer teams, then we can provide exactly what you need. We have acted as the installer for numerous past clients, all of which have needed different things with highly specific requirements or preferences.

As a professional installer company, we can ensure that all of the chargers we install are handled with the utmost care. We aim to give every client exactly what they need, no matter what kind of vehicle they use or where they need the charger installed.
