Electric cars have begun to revolutionize the auto industry over the past decade or so. With their ability to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels and shrink our carbon footprint, they are slowly but surely becoming the new standard of vehicle in a more eco-conscious world. And with every revolution comes a need for certain adjustments. For electric cars, it’s the need for convenient charging stations.
While the number of publicly available charging stations is growing every day, the most important place for every electric car owner to make sure they can get their car battery charged and ready to go is at their own home. To do that, you are going to need the help of a licensed electrician.
No, you cannot just run an extension cable from your living room outlet to the garage. Not unless you are willing to wait 20 hours or more for a full charge. To get an adequate charge in a reasonable amount of time, you are going to need a specifically designed electric car charger, which requires the installation of a dedicated 240-volt circuit. Getting that sort of installation done safely and properly requires an experienced electrician.
