Which Level of EV Charger Do You Need?
One of the most important decisions that clients must make before their EV charger installation is which level of charge they desire. The most basic kind of EV charger, known as a Level 1 charger, is great for those who do not drive their car long distances or only drive a few times a week. These chargers do not require additional amperage, because they charge slowly throughout the night. Some Level 1 chargers take even longer, reaching full charge at 20 hours.
Although this extended charging time may work for those driving every couple of days, it does not work for those making a daily commute. This is where a Level 2 charger comes in handy. Since a Level 2 charger can get up to 32 miles of RPH (driving range per hour), it may take between three and eight hours to reach full charge. This means a Level 2 charger is about four to eight times as fast as a Level 1 charger. Our knowledgeable professionals would be happy to offer more advice when it comes to selecting the most optimal charging level.
Supplying the Right Amount of Electric Charge
Amperage is a big issue that homeowners deal with when trying to install an EV charger. Higher-level EV chargers require more service, from 50 to 60 amps, or three breakers. However, many classic panel boards are not able to handle this level of amperage. When the panel does not have enough service, it will simply refuse to work. Overloading the panel could trip circuits, and even lead to electrical shocks or a fire. To avoid this situation, homeowners will need to have increased amperage at their property, as well as larger panel boards. Our specialists can install these components so the owners of electric vehicles can start enjoying fast charging.

The Importance of a Pre-Installation Consultation
Although electric vehicle owners may be excited to get going with their new chargers, it is very important to schedule a consultation with an expert first. Some residences may not have the load capacity required for the desired charger. Alternatively, some vehicles, like Teslas, only take chargers specifically designed for that brand. Our team at Blau Sudden Service Can answer any of your questions in full detail during our comprehensive consultations.
