Are you enjoying your electric car and the freedom it has given you from the gas pumps? If you can’t answer yes to that question, you need to think about why it isn’t working. For many electric car owners, it is the lack of available charging stations around town. Your trickle charger that plugs in at home requires a good twenty-four hours to fully charge your car, giving you the juice you need to go about your busy day. If you can’t leave the car plugged in for that long, you need to think about hiring an electrician in Fort Lauderdale, like those at Elcon Electric. An electrician can get you set up to use a fast charging station.
The fast chargers or what are known as Level II chargers, can give your electric car a full charge in eight hours or less depending on the make and model. This means you can leave your house in the morning with a full charge and not worry about finding a charging station near your work or wherever you are running errands. You have complete freedom to park where you choose. These chargers require a little more electricity to run, which is where a Fort Lauderdale electrician comes in.
After a quick inspection of your home’s electric panel by an electrician, Fort Lauderdale homeowners will get an estimate on the cost to install the fast charger in your garage. Because of the higher electrical demand, you will need a special 240-volt outlet in the garage. This is the same kind of outlet your air conditioner or dryer plugs into. They are not standard in most garages, which means it will need to be added. If you are ready to get the most out of your electric car, give Elcon Electric a call today to schedule your inspection and then your installation.
