What Are the Benefits of a Home EV Charger?
Owning an electric vehicle is great for saving on the high cost of gas and reducing your carbon footprint. When you buy an electric vehicle, the first thing you will need to decide is how you plan to charge it.
Public charging stations are great when you are on the road but using a public EV charger all the time can be inconvenient and expensive.
A home EV charging station offers benefits that include:
- Faster charging
- Cheaper than public charging stations
- Longer battery life
Does Having An EV Charger Increase Your Property Value?
In addition to the immediate advantages of charging your electric vehicle at home, installing an EV charger offers long-term benefits. An EV charger can help increase your property value. If you ever decide to sell your home, having an electric vehicle charging station installed can increase your appraisal value and attract eco-conscious buyers.

Residential EV Chargers
What Are the Different Levels of EV Charging?
The options for residential EV chargers include Level 1 and Level 2 charging stations.
Level 1 Charger
The Level 1 charger is the one that comes with your electric vehicle. This charger can be plugged into your 120v electrical outlet. Level 1 is the slowest way to charge your electric vehicle as it adds only 3-5 miles of range per hour. Meaning, it can take about 10-12 hours to charge your vehicle on a Level 1 charger, which is too slow for most people.
Level 2 Charger
A Level 2 charger can fully charge the vehicle in just a few hours. The faster charging time makes Level 2 charging stations popular for home applications. Level 2 charger can replenish anywhere from 12-80 miles of range per hour, depending on your EV’s maxim charge rate and the power output to the charger.
This means that your EV can usually be completely charged overnight even if your battery was nearly empty. Level 2 EV charging stations require 240v electrical service, so you can’t use typical household outlets. A dedicated 240v circuit is needed to power the EV charger. Our experienced electricians at Boston Electric install dedicated circuits for EV chargers in West Palm Beach and the surrounding Tri-County area.

What Is the Life Expectancy of an EV Charger?
The estimated EV charger lifespan is around 10-12 years. To prolong your EV charger’s life, we recommend maintaining it regularly. However, since residential EV chargers are relatively new, there is very little concrete data on their longevity and the average cost of maintenance.
How Much Does EV Charger Installation Cost?
The cost of the installation depends on where the charger will be installed and the specific upgrades and electrical work needed to complete the installation. We offer free estimates for electrical installations for EV chargers.
