Our electricians can install EV charging points in your home. Electric vehicles are more popular than ever and the demand for at-home charging stations has grown. As well as being convenient for car owners, there are many benefits of having a private charger. It’s going to save a lot of time stopping at public services to refill the battery power, too.
So, is it more cost effective to charge an electric car at your house?
According to the Energy Saving Trust, it will be cheaper to charge the battery of your vehicle at home. Despite the cost of the initial installation, the price of powering the battery is much lower than filling up at public stations. It states that plugging in the car at a public point could cost over double the amount it does than having a personal EV charging station at home. Over the years, this investment can save a lot of money.
When Is The Cheapest Time To Charge An Electric Car?
EV charging is typically most cost effective overnight when electricity consumption is lower than points during the day. Rates can obviously differ depending on many factors, but this is generally the best time for most households.
Various tariffs will offer different benefits, so it’s important to look into this to get the most for your money.
How Long Will It Take To Charge My EV?
This time changes depending on what type of EV charging point you have opted for and the capacity of the battery in your vehicle. The most common 7kW charge can take around 4 to 8 hours for a full battery, but this can differ. To calculate how long it will take, divide the charger power (kW) by the battery size (kWh) to work out the time it will take in hours.
How Long Does It Take To Install An EV Charging Point?
Our electricians won’t take long installing your new plug-in station. It should only take a few hours to get fitted. Most installations are straightfoward. However, this timeframe can change depending on what works need to be done. For a more specific timeframe, get in touch with Warmserve today.
