Why You Need A Professional Electrician For Your Installation
Always use a trained, certified, licensed electrician when installing a car charging station in your home. As part of your home's electrical infrastructure, any charging system requires up-front planning for a safe and reliable installation. In fact, some electric vehicle manufacturers and charging station manufacturers will void the warranty if their equipment is not installed by a licensed professional. Kangaroo Contractors has the latest testing equipment and voltage meters to ensure that your new charging station is putting out the correct voltage for your electric car specifications. Our knowledgeable electrical technicians are here to assist you from start to finish ensuring that your electric car charging station is installed safely and operating correctly.
What To Consider When Buying and Installing a Home EV Charger
Home charging stations are a convenient way to supply your electric car battery with its daily electricity needs. Here are some factors to consider when buying an EV home charging station.
Charger Location Matters
When installing a charging station, look for the right location. Most charging units come with a 25-foot charging cable which gives greater flexibility over where it can be installed. Most residential electrical customers place this charger in the garage, where the car will likely be parked most of the time. With a long enough cord, garage chargers allow you to conveniently charge the vehicle while it's parked in your driveway, too.
Keep Size in Mind
While it is possible to use a standard outlet to charge your vehicle at home, a dedicated electric vehicle charger can make the process much faster and allow you to avoid using public chargers as much as possible.
A Level 2 charging station cuts the time it takes to replenish the battery from more than 18 hours with a 110-volt wall plug to as little as 3 hours. And for plug-in hybrids it means that instead of tapping into the fuel tank, you can restore the car's electric range after you get home from work and before you head out for a night on the town.
Installation is Easy!

Charge your Car From the Couch
Kangaroo Contractors residential smart chargers might be able to be connected to your home Wi-Fi network, which allows you easy access to all functions of your charging device from your smartphone, personal computer or tablet. Through the simple and intuitive app and dashboard, you can start or stop charging, set reminders, manage charging schedules (to maximize use of cheaper energy use time periods or renewable energy), and view your charging history.
When You Charge Matters
Utility electric rates vary at different times of the day, depending on the overall usage of the grid. As electric cars require a lot of electricity, it can cost more if you charge your electric car at home during peak times, especially with other electrical appliances turned on. With our Wi-Fi connectivity, your charger can charge your car automatically during the off-peak times that you select, which can bring electricity costs down substantially.
