Your Ultimate Guide to Electric Car Charging Station Installation

The World of Electric Cars

Right now, we live in a world where technology has taken us to places we could have never imagined before. Did you ever think we would be able to charge our cars instead of filling them up with gas?

There are so many benefits that come with purchasing an electric car rather than one that runs on gas. They are smooth, they are quiet, they are reliable, and they can save you a lot of money over time. The only downside to electric cars is that they need a source of power to charge. The upfront cost of buying an electric car and setting up the charging station somewhere in your home is typically more expensive, but in the long run, it’ll pay off.

4 Tips for Installing an Electric Car Charging Station:

  1. Know the type of charging station you need

When you buy an electric car, one of the questions you should ask the dealership is what kind of electric car charging station do you need. There are 3 different levels when it comes to car charging stations, and you need to know which level you need before you (or we) install your charging station.

  • Choose the right location

Like any regular, gas-powered car, the plug to charge it is only on one side of your car. If you plan to leave your car in a garage every night, you need to make sure you put install the charging station on the right side of your garage. Or if you leave your car outside or don’t have a garage, you still need to make sure the charging station is on the proper side of your car.

  • Know the cost

If you bought an electric car, then you know what kind of cost you are looking at to install its respective charging station. This cost is going to be pricey upfront, but it’s a one-time cost so you won’t have to worry about it again. You may need some maintenance once in a while, but that’s no problem for the team here at Surface Bella!

  • Know how long it takes your car to charge

Knowing how long it takes for your electric car to charge is important. If you have to work in the morning or someone in your house leaves before you, you want to install your charging station in a location that won’t be a bother. For example, if you keep your car in the driveway but someone parks in front of you in the garage, putting your charging station outside isn’t the smartest idea if you have to charge it overnight and someone in your home works a night shift and needs to get out.
