To charge your electric car, have you thought about the supply needed from your electrical system to do such? Is your panel sized right? Is your electric service and meter-sized right? There several things to consider when making upgrades to your electrical system for an electric car charger. Most electric vehicles charge better on a 240-volt circuit. A 240-volt circuit is not common in a home, meaning new wiring and a new circuit breaker will need to be added to the electrical panel for to vehicle to charge at optimal efficiency. Arnold Electric Service, Inc can help answer all these questions for you. The first thing we want to do is find out how much the charger draws then analyze the existing system through a load calculation and see if what exists can handle the addition of the charger on it. Our licensed technicians can help navigate you through the process of upgrading your service and for the addition of electric vehicle charging. All of our panel and meter installations are a turnkey service from the permits to the follow up after completion. Some other things to think about when upgrading your new electric service for an electric car charger is surge protection and grounding. Adding a surge protector is a great enhancement to a newly updated electrical system with an electric vehicle charger. The grounding system is also very important to be properly installed when it comes to an electric car charger and is completely code compliant after our service upgrades.
