The Benefits of Having an EV Charger at Home

One of the biggest benefits of having Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) at home is increased convenience. There's no need to be on the road to work and realize you need to find a charging station nearby. Your car can charge up overnight while you're asleep and be ready for a new day.

Eliminating the need to find a charging station also eliminates the need to pay for getting an electric car charged on a regular basis. Owners can find an immediate return on their investment in EVSE every time they charge up at home rather than paying someone else.

Furthermore, the presence of EVSE can be a long-term investment. As the market for electric cars grows, the value of having EVSE in a home is likely to be seen by prospective buyers. The result may well be a higher return when it's time to sell the house.

Choosing the Right EV Charger for Your Home

When it comes to installing an EV charger at home, it's important to choose the right one to meet your needs. With various options available, our Santa Barbara electricians can help you select the best EV charger for your specific vehicle and charging requirements.

Factors to consider when choosing an EV charger include:

  • Charging speed: Determine the charging speed you need based on your vehicle's battery capacity and your daily driving habits.
  • Compatibility: Ensure that the EV charger is compatible with your vehicle's make and model to avoid any compatibility issues.
  • Installation requirements: Consider the installation process and any electrical upgrades that may be needed to support the EV charger.
  • Smart features: Look for EV chargers with smart features such as scheduling, monitoring, and remote access for added convenience.

Signs Your EV Charger Needs Repair

If you already have a charging station at home, it's important to be aware of the signs of damage. The sooner a technician can be summoned, the better the chance there is of a cost-effective solution. Those warning signs include:

  • Physical Damage: Dents, cracks, or burns indicate that the station may require repair. The same goes for damage to the insulation of the charging cable.
  • Power Issues: Insufficient power output could be due to worn-out breakers, faulty wiring, or problems with the socket itself.
  • Power Surges: Sudden spikes in power output during charging can damage the components within the EV charger, leading to malfunction or unsafe operation.
  • Tripped Breakers: Frequent tripping of breakers may indicate issues that range from overloading on wattage to internal wiring flaws.
  • Discoloration: Strange coloring around plugs suggests overheating caused by excessive resistance in the circuit or poor wire insulation. These can pose fire hazards and should be addressed promptly.
  • Unusual Noises: Rattling, buzzing, or humming noises coming from the EV charger may indicate loose components or damaged parts.

It's important to act quickly in contacting our Santa Barbara EV charger techs. Letting damage go unchecked can increase the cost of the eventual repair job, and it is often dangerous.
