As we move towards a greener future, electric vehicles (EVs) are becoming the norm. If you’re considering or have already bought an EV, installing a home charger is a smart move. It’s not just about convenience; it’s about embracing the future of transportation. Here’s a simple guide on getting your home ready for an electric home charger installation.

Pick the Right Charger

You have two main choices:

  • Slow Charger (Level 1): Uses a normal plug. It’s slow but easy to start with.
  • Fast Charger (Level 2): Charges your car quicker. You might need help to set it up because it uses a bigger plug.

Check Your Electric Box

Make sure your house’s electric box can handle the new charger. If it’s old, you might need to upgrade it. It’s best to ask an electrician to take a look.

Get Help from a Pro

Installing a fast charger usually needs a professional electrician. They know how to safely set it up and make sure everything works right.

Decide Where to Put It

Think about where your car parks and the best spot for your charger. The garage or near your driveway are good spots. The charger should be close to your car and easy to reach.

Permits Might Be Needed

Some places ask you to get a permit before you add a charger. Check with your local government. After it’s set up, someone might need to check it to make sure it’s safe and follows the rules.

Enjoy the Perks

Once your charger is ready, you can enjoy charging your car at home. No need to find a charging station for your daily use. Plus, it’s usually cheaper to charge at home, especially at night when electricity costs less.


Electric home charger installation is a step towards a sustainable future. It’s not just an upgrade for your home; it’s an investment in our planet’s health. By preparing your home for an EV, you’re part of the movement towards cleaner, greener transportation. Welcome to the future—it’s electric!
