Everything You Need To Know About Installing An EV Charging Station

Home Ev Charging Station

Read On To Learn More About Home EV Chargers

If you own or are considering owning an electric vehicle (EV), having a reliable and accessible EV charging station is crucial. In order to use your electric car, you need to be able to charge it when you’re home. Installing an EV charging station can seem like a daunting task, but the team at Hobaica Services is here to help. In this article, we’ll cover everything you need to know about installing an EV charging station at your Phoenix, AZ, area home!

What is an EV Charger? 

An EV charger is a device that supplies electricity to an electric vehicle, allowing it to be recharged. Basically, an EV charger functions exactly like any other appliance or item you charge by putting into the wall: it draws an electrical current from either a 240v outlet or the grid it is linked to and distributes that electricity to the car.

How Long Does It Take To Charge An EV From A Home Station?

Much depends on the type of vehicle and type of charger installed, but typically a home charging station will fully charge an electric vehicle in 6-8 hours. Most electric car drivers simply plug in their car when they get home and charge it overnight.  

How Does the EV Installation Process Work? 

Installing an EV charger is a relatively straightforward process. First, you’ll need to choose the location for your charger. Typically this will be in your garage somewhere close to where you store your EV. 

Next, your electrician will run electricity from where you want to charge your EV to your breaker box. It might be necessary to completely replace your breaker box in order to have a compatible interface, or you might only need to add a double-pole breaker to your current panel. Your electrician will be able to determine if your current panel can handle the extra voltage. 

Can I Install An EV Charging Station Myself?

Unless you are a licensed electrician, it is highly recommended that you DO NOT install an EV charging station yourself. Working with higher voltage can be dangerous and if the work is not done properly, it can pose a fire risk. Play it safe and call a licensed electrician.

Travis Vonau was our service technician. We had something wrong with our hot water heater. We called Hobaica, and they were able to send Travis, same day. Travis was very professional, and thoroughly explained the “hows” and “whys” of what was going on with the hot water heater. He fixed the problem in a timely fashion. He’s very knowledgeable about his products, and gave us good info about water heaters. Hobaica also services our HVAC’s. We’ve been with them since 2019. We love Hobaica!!

John came to repair ac unit. After diagnosing problems it was decided to get new one since old one is 16 years old. Freon was put in to keep cool until new one installed. He was professional and showed pictures of unit where problems are. I purchased new one for other side of house last year and have been very pleased.
