Home Electric Vehicle Charger Installation

With our installation services of electric vehicle charging stations, we make sure that the whole process is properly planned and completed. Our team will install the charging station in the best spot possible, being no more than 3m away from the charging point. It is important that the station is correctly connected to the wiring of your home as we also ensure that RCD and safety switches are connected to the station for added safety. 

Depending on whether you have a Tesla Powerwall or any other ev charger model station we can connect the system to either a single phase or three phase switchboard. Every step of the installation is correctly monitored and planned to prevent problems from occurring. Tests will be carried out at the end of the installation to make certain that your station works perfectly all year round. 

What are Some Considerations with Home Electric Vehicle Charger Installations?

When undergoing an electric vehicle charging station installation there are 3 important factors to consider:

  • Correct Cabling: The charging station will need its own cable from the switchboard and no other appliances should be connected to the circuit. The right cable size also needs to be installed to ensure the system can charge the vehicle correctly. For example, if the cable is too thin, then there is a high chance that it can burn. Our qualified electricians will be able to advise on the perfect cable size for your charging station.
  • Adding Extra Safety Devices (e.g RCD Switches): It is important that all safety devices, such as RCDs, are connected to the charger to make certain people and appliances safe from electrical spikes and surges.
  • Switchboard Upgrades: It is not uncommon for your property to need a switchboard upgrade  due to the added electrical strain an EV charger can have on your property’s wiring. If you have recently had an electric charger installed and are having repeated trip switches, then this is a sure sign that you will potentially need a 3 phase upgrade to handle the electrical demand.
  • Dedicated Cabling: the EV charger will need its own dedicated circuit meaning no additional appliance should be connected to the outlet or circuit. This is to ensure that all the power goes to the electric vehicle charging station but more so to prevent electrical overloading from occurring. If appliances are connected alongside the EV charger then the circuit might be drawing in too much power which can result in dangerous situations.
  • Circuit Breaker Installation: alongside the electrical safety devices which protect people against being shocked from an electrical fault a circuit breaker is used to protect the charging station from electrical issues. The EV charging station will need to be connected to an appropriate circuit breaker to ensure if an issue occurs it will stop the electrical flow to the EV charger to prevent damages from happening.

Home Electric Vehicle Charger Repair

We offer the best EV charging solutions and repairs to problems with home electric vehicle charging stations. Problems range from a broken charging cable, the plug being ruined and switches breaking. Other issues might be the station being faulty, the system does not charge the car properly or there is overall limited power. No matter the issue our licensed electricians will ensure to have the electrical repairs of the charging station correctly completed.

Electric Vehicle Charger Compliance Testing?

It is important that an electric car charging station is regularly inspected for any issues or problems. Performing an electrical safety inspection on an EV charging station is just as essential as it would be with other electric systems. That is why The Local Electrician offers professional electrical vehicle charger compliance testing. This is where we look over the whole charging station and ensure the systems and all Electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) are working perfectly.

We will look over the location where you charge your electric vehicle to ensure that there are no dangerous hazards. The ev charging station will be examined, including the charging cable, plug type and overall condition of the system. Tests will also be carried out, such as charging speeds and charge times, to ensure everything is operating correctly.

Why do I Need an Electric Vehicle Charger Testing and Inspection?

The main benefits of having an certified electrician inspect the electric vehicle charging station are:

  • All products, parts and systems of the charger are working under the correct standards
  • Makes certain that people and appliances are safe from potential faults with the charger
  • The charger is checked for its performance and adjusted if needed

Will I Need To Upgrade My Switchboard?

At times the ev charging station might need a large amount of power to properly function. This means that a 3 phase electrical switchboard might be required to meet the power needs of the station. Some electric home chargers will work perfectly with single phase, however three phase systems may be required for properties that have larger electrical usages.

3 Phase Switchboard Upgrades For Electric Vehicle Chargers

Most fast charging Electric Vehicle chargers will need a 3 phase switchboard as the system requires a large amount of energy. Only a licensed Level 2 Electrician can carry out  a 3 phase switchboard upgrade. 

Here at The Local Electrician we have level two electricians on 24/7 standby always ready to lend a hand. Our level 2 electrician will have your old switchboard upgraded or replaced with a new system, all while ensuring all wires and cables are properly connected. Our team will also have your switchboard perfectly connected to the charging station and perform tests to make certain it functions well.

Frequently Asked EV Charging Installation Questions!

How Much Does EV Charging Installation Cost?

The price of an EV charging installation will vary depending on certain factors but the average is from $750 to $3500. The various factors that can influence the overall cost range from the labour, equipment and hours involved. Purchasing any equipment for the job, such as the actual charging station and any additional safety devices and cabling for instance, will add to the cost of installing an EV charger in the home.

Each different EV charger installation will be different in pricing because there are many different components involved. 

Can I Use Solar Power To Power My EV Charger?

Solar panels can be installed to power the electric vehicle charger in the home. An electrician can organise connecting the solar panels up to power the EV charger and have it operate smoothly. Using solar panels to power the electric vehicle charger will save money in the long term and can be more effective at charging the car faster.

Do I Need An Electrician To Install My EV Charging unit?

An electrician is required to install EV charging stations in all places and buildings. This is because electrical systems, cabling and equipment are involved and without training, it is highly dangerous to work with these. If an untrained electrician installs the electric vehicle charger then it is illegal, unsafe for the person and unsafe for everyone as it is more likely problems will develop in the future. 

What Different EV Chargers Are There?

There are three main types of electric vehicle chargers to choose from and each will be more suitable for different people and their needs. The most basic charger is a Level 1 EV charger that can be plugged into an outlet but it is also the slowest at charging. Level 2 EV chargers are the recommended ones for residential use. This is because they charge the car efficiently and suit most people’s needs. They have their own charging station and require their own dedicated electrical circuit. Level 3 EV chargers are mainly for commercial use as they use more power but charge cars more quickly.
