When you own an electric vehicle, scheduling charging into your day can be a hassle. With an at-home electric vehicle charging station, you can conveniently juice-up anytime, even as you sleep. These tips from Centennial Toyota can help you get started.

Which Charger Do I Need?

You can choose between a Level 1 or Level 2 charger for at-home charging. A 120-volt Level 1 charger is best for short commutes. It can conveniently plug in to any common household three-prong outlet, but it takes a long time to fully charge.

Typically, Level 2 chargers are the best setup for at-home charging. The 240-volt charger is ideal for fast charging, and it should be installed by a licensed electrician.

Who Do I Contact for Installation?

Make sure that you contact a certified professional to install your charger. You want to make sure that your electrical system can accommodate it, plus, they’ll make sure your system is efficient and equipped for all weather.

You can easily find a licensed installation professional with Qmerit, a leading provider of EV home charging technology. They even provide a one-year warranty for parts and labor.

How Do I Order Installation?

It’s quick and convenient to order installation for your charger with Qmerit. The online installation portal features a simple assessment takes just five to ten minutes to complete. You’ll answer a few questions and then upload a few photos of your home so they can ensure you have the setup you need.
