Why a home EV charger?
Standard EV charging cables (supplied with some EVs), plug into your standard home power-point, but provide minimal charge at a very slow pace (your EV won’t fully charge overnight). A home EV charger installation gives you the flexibility and convenience to charge your EV faster, at home. Charge while you’re at work or overnight – no need to waste time and pay for fast charging at other locations.
An EV charger installation will also increase the value of your home as the range of EVs on the market increases and ownership becomes more and more popular. Some states in Australia have already announced timeframes for banning the sale of petrol-powered cars as part of environmental strategies to reduce emissions.
About EV chargers
There are many brands and types of EV chargers on the market with varying technical and user features. Our team is always happy to take you through what’s available so you can understand the options and what might be practical for your needs.
- Single/three-phase: Single-phase EV chargers are small-scale chargers, best-suited for domestic use. Three-phase EV chargers (for high-powered faster charging) are best suited to large homes and commercial use. See more detail below.
- Load balancing: This important feature automatically adjusts the output rate during peak usage times to protect your home electricity system (helps prevent tripping and circuit overload).
- Mounting: EV chargers can be mounted indoors or outdoors, depending on the model. Options include pole-mounted, wall-mounted and floor-standing.
- Single or dual-output: You may choose dual output if there is more than one EV in your family.
Other handy user/safety features to look for include varying cable lengths, charging indicators, status lights, emergency stop and theft prevention mechanisms.
Smart EV chargers
EV chargers are pretty tech savvy! ‘Smart’ EV chargers allow you to connect using wifi and control the charger remotely using an app on your phone. This is a great way to monitor your charging and reduce charging costs by scheduling on/off peak charging. Great if you have solar installed!
Single phase EV charger installation
Small-scale chargers are great for overnight or all-day charging and are best-suited for domestic purposes, fleet vehicles and hotels. 1 hour of charge provides around 50 kms driving time.
Three-phase EV charger installation
Three-phase EV chargers draw more power and provide ‘fast charging’. They are best suited for commercial charging stations, with the ability to charge an EV in under 30 minutes. They can also be installed at larger high-powered homes or properties that use three-phase power.
Some models accommodate management software with features such as monetisation, user profiles/access cards and the ability to view data for each profile. ProSolar can also provide your Commercial EV Charger Installation. Chat to our team today.
Choosing your home EV charger
We’ll help you select the best EV charger model based on the features you need and suggest an installation and mounting option that suits your home, your EV and your charging needs. A few things to consider:
- Your EV (make/model, size)
- Your lifestyle (when do you use your EV the most?)
- How long will you charge? (overnight, short charges)
- At what times will you charge? (daytime, night time, peak/off peak)
- What features would you prefer?
Consider your lifestyle and regular habits, work and social commitments including the daily commute to work, school runs, gym or family visits and the timing and frequencies that these happen. It may sound detailed, but taking the time to choose the right EV charger with design features that suit your usage patterns can make all the difference when it comes to performance, convenience and energy savings.
Mounting and location
You may already have a mounting location in mind, based on where you park your EV. Depending on your home electricity system, driveway/garage setup and the model selected, your EV charger installation can be inside or outside. Common locations are under a carport, along a wall inside the garage, or in a driveway.
Your EV charger should be protected from hard knocks (e.g. garage doors, trees), debris (e.g. leaves) and exposure to extreme weather. Space for other cars which may need to move in/out of the property while your EV is charging should also be considered.
EV charger installation
An EV charger is a hard-wired electrical appliance, which by law, must be installed by a licensed contractor.
Our qualified, licensed installers will ensure that your new EV charger is installed in a safe, practical, user-friendly location that protects you, your EV and maximises the life of your EV charger.
Pre-installation and assessment
Our team will check your home electrical system to ensure that it can accommodate the new appliance without impacting its capacity to power your home safely, without risk of damage or dangerous faults. Some electrical systems (particularly in older homes) may require minor wiring or switchboard upgrades for compliance reasons. Your EV charger needs to be able to perform and function at its best.
