Electric vehicles are becoming more popular in the Tacoma area. The city’s 2023 Climate Action Plan encourages EV use, and the Downtown Charging Expansion Project is installing EV chargers in more parking lots and garages. 

EV chargers offer Tacoma residents enough places to charge up on the go. However, the city-owned charging stations cost $0.21 per kilowatt hour, leading more people to explore electrical vehicle charger installation in their homes. 

Contact Kliemann Brothers for home EV charger installation. Our professional electricians handle all your home’s electrical needs with the care and expertise you’d expect from the city’s top EV charger installers.

What Types of EV Chargers Are Available for Installation?

To install an electric car charger at home, determine what type works best for your car, budget, and lifestyle. The standard Level 1 120v AC chargers give you about 4-5 miles of range per hour of charging. This is usually the type of charger you’ll receive when purchasing a vehicle. 

Level 2 AC chargers require a 240v outlet but can charge much faster, at around 20-32 miles per hour. Upgrading to a Level 2 is typically recommended, as you’ll have peace of mind knowing your vehicle can be fully charged within 3- 8 hours on average.

How Do I Choose the Right Type of Charger for My Home?

There are many different residential EV charging station options to consider, so it’s best to talk to a professional about home EV charger installation.

The NFPA National Electric Code states that electric vehicle chargers can be located indoors or outdoors. If your charger is located indoors, it may need special ventilation or a specific charging cable placement. 

You’ll need to know your home’s available electrical capacity. The pros at Kliemann Brothers can ensure the unit you choose fits your vehicle’s make and model and is installed safely. 

How Long Does It Take To Install an EV Charger?

Depending on the charger type and how many you’re installing, EV charger installation can take as little as a few hours. Kliemann Bros’ experienced electricians do the job correctly the first time, so you can plug your car in at home faster. 

Will Installing an EV Charger Increase My Home Value?

Installing an electric vehicle charger adds value to your home. As the number of electric vehicle drivers increases, so does the need for at-home charging. A home with an EV charger installed is future-ready and appeals to the environmentally conscious home buyer who values sustainability, convenience, and saving money.
