The Benefits of an EV Charger

While there are some public EV charging stations in Missoula, and the number is growing over time, they are still limited. An EV charger at your home or business is the best way to ensure you have access to a place to fill up when you need it.

Here are some additional pros to having an electric vehicle charger installation in Missoula, MT:

How to Choose an EV Charger

We highly recommend adding a charger to your home if you do own an electric car. And Hometown Electric will be your partners throughout this addition, helping you understand how to choose the best EV charger for your needs.

Consider these questions when you would like to install an EV charger in Missoula, MT.

What kind of property do you have?

Residential and commercial properties will have different needs. A homeowner will likely want to install a Level 2 charger, which is designed to charge vehicles overnight. A commercial property owner may want to consider faster options, like a DC fast charger (also known as a Level 3 charger). Consider the needs of your household or business before making your final decision.

How fast do you need to charge your car?

Different chargers will fill up your car at different rates. Even among chargers of the same type – let’s say Level 2 chargers – the speed of charging varies. It’s important to think about your expectations for charging speed before you make a purchase.

Where do you plan to install the charger?

Will the charger go in your garage? If you already have a 240V outlet in the garage, and you plan to get a Level 2 charger, the installation is easy. However, if you have a detached garage without an electrical hookup, the installation will be harder. Either way, you’ll be able to work with Hometown Electric to make a plan for the best way to install your charger.

How far do you typically commute or drive in a day?

Do you have a short commute? You may not even need a Level 2 EV charger installation in Missoula if you only drive a few miles a day. Instead, you could be satisfied with the Level 1 charger that comes with your car.

However, we still recommend you consult an electrician before using any sort of EV charger at home. Even Level 1 chargers should be on their own circuit, and the additional electricity usage may be more than your current electrical system can handle. It’s better to be proactive and work with an electrician from the get-go rather than overloading your electrical panel, which could require emergency repairs.

Once you answer these questions, you’ll have a much better idea about which EV charger is right for you. Call us today at (406) 508-197 to schedule service or learn more from the experts at Hometown Electric!
