Your electric car has the potential to save you a lot of cash this summer, if you use it right. By that, we are referring to the charging station you use to charge the car so it can run off of a battery rather than gasoline. Depending on the make and model of electric car you own, you will probably get an average of about 35 miles per full battery charge. If you already own an electric car with a Level I charger, you have probably realized that it takes a good 24 hours to fully charge your car. An electrician in Pasadena can help you shorten that charging time by half or more. The team at H Electric is here to help you save even more money on your weekly gas bill by installing an outlet that will support a Level II charger.
Level II chargers, also simply referred to as fast chargers, can give an electric car a full charge in as little as six hours. This is much more convenient for the family who is regularly on the go. The faster chargers require more electricity to operate, which is why you need an electrician familiar with Pasadena electrical needs. A 240-volt outlet will need to be installed in the area where you park your car. This outlet is not the standard outlet you would find in the garage or outside under the carport. It is the kind of outlet that is used to run your air conditioner or clothes dryer.
Before an electrician installs the outlet, you will need to have an electric panel inspection to determine whether or not your existing panel has enough room to support a 240-volt outlet. This is all information your electrician can explain to you in more detail. Give H Electric a call today to schedule your initial consultation.
