The growing focus on climate change and air pollution, and the trend toward embracing renewable energy for producing electricity has given rise to the continued popularity of electric vehicles. Save Home Heat Company is here to help you, providing experienced electric vehicle (EV) charging station installations for homeowners in Boulder, CO and surrounding communities. Our team of highly skilled electricians are ready to help you improve your quality of life, and can provide expert assistance with all the details of having an EV charging station installed safely and professionally in your residence or for your small business.
Plug-In Electric Vehicles: A Popular EV Option
Wind and solar energy continue to play a larger role in electrical production for municipal utilities, as well as home electrical generation, and the growth in popularity of a class of EVs known as Plug-in Electric Vehicles (PEVs) has come along hand-in-hand. The two types of PEVs that are currently most popular are 100% electric Battery Electric Vehicles (known as BEVs), which plug into a charging station to obtain their power; the other type are a variety of Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEVs), all of which produce their own electricity through an internal system, while also obtaining power in other ways, as well. Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs) are somewhat unique in that they can plug into an EV charging station, create their own electricity internally, or operate off gasoline.
That sure is a lot of alphabet soup, but if you own one, or are conducting research, this is just a quick review. BEVs and PHEVs are the types of electric vehicles that we typically install home charging stations to accomodate.
Level 2 EV Charging Stations For Fast-Charge Performance
Level 2 electric vehicle charging stations are very popular with Boulder area homeowners for their ability to fully recharge most EVs overnight or during a normal day around the house. The Level 1 EV chargers that often are supplied with many electric and hybrid vehicles are fine if you got the time, but they can take as much as four to five times longer to charge your vehicle. As a result, Level 2 EV charging stations continue to grow in popularity. Level 2 home EV charging stations require a dedicated, 240 volt electrical circuit, installed with a properly sized breaker and the correct gauge of wire, and this installation work is best left to an experienced electrical pro. In the Boulder area, you can trust our team at Save Home Heat to install your EV charging station correctly, in full accordance with all manufacturer requirements and electrical code.
