With the continued trend towards embracing renewable energy for municipal and home electrical generation and the growing focus on climate change, electric vehicles are more popular than ever. Among our electrical services, Save Home Heat Company offers professional electric vehicle (EV) charging station installations for Lafayette, CO and surrounding communities. Our team is ready to help you add the convenience of private, dependable EV charging to your home – or your business!
With wind, solar, and other renewable energy sources continuing to play a bigger part in municipal utilities, as well as at the home level, the role of hybrid and all-electric vehicles continues to grow, as well. An EV charging station is a great option to consider for your home or business.
Plug-In EVs are A Popular Choice
Municipal utilities and homes continue to utilize wind and solar energy, as renewable energy sources play a larger role in electrical generation day after day. It should come as no surprise that the popularity of a class of electric vehicles known as Plug-in Electric Vehicles (PEVs) has grown hand-in-hand. There are two types of PEVs that are most popular, with the first being a Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV). BEVs are 100% electric, and use charging stations to obtain their power. Alongside BEVs are Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEVs), which produce their own electricity internally. Another option of note is a Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV), which can charge using an EV charging station, their own internal system, and even use gasoline to operate.
Most often, we install home charging stations for BEVs and PHEVs. If all of those acronyms are confusing, don’t fret. This is just a brief overview of what’s available on the market, and our team can accommodate whatever type of EV you own.
Level 2 EV Charging Stations for Upgraded Charging Speed
Popular with Lafayette EV owners, a Level 2 EV charging station is a clear upgrade over the Level 1 charging stations that often come supplied with electric and hybrid vehicles. Up to 4-5 times faster, Level 2 EV charging stations can fully recharge most EVs overnight or during a normal day around your home. This product isn’t necessary, of course, but it can be a big improvement in the convenience you enjoy with your EV.
If you’re interested in a Level 2 EV charger, it’s important to note that these products require a dedicated 240 volt electrical circuit. Also necessary is a properly sized breaker and the correct gauge of wire. It’s best to leave this work to a professional electrician, and in Lafayette, you can always count on Save Home Heat Company. We will always install your EV charger correctly and in full accordance with all electrical code and manufacturer recommendations for each specific product.
Each EV Charging Station Is:
- Overseen by our Master Electrician
- Performed by our team of highly skilled electricians
- Installed in full accordance with National Electrical Code (NEC)
- Tailored to meet the needs of your specific vehicle
- Comparable in size to your main electrical utility service box
Lafayette EV Charging Stations
Even though the number of public EV charging stations is steadily increasing, access can still be limited for EV owners in Lafayette, at times. Having a home electric vehicle charging station is a convenient way to have reliable charging both for plug-in hybrids as well as Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs). Climate responsibility is a growing concern, and with the growth of electric vehicles, having your own EV charging station is an excellent choice for convenience, and also great for your peace of mind.
With specific code and manufacturer requirements, it’s important that EV charging station installations are performed by a highly skilled, experienced electrician, like the ones at Save Home Heat Company. Each of our installations is overseen by our Master Electrician, and our experience and expertise mean that you can trust your installation to be professional and in accordance with all local code and manufacturer requirements. We’ll be there for the first time you operate the EV charging station, and will gladly answer any questions you may have, on startup and at any time after we’ve completed our work.
