All the Benefits of an At-Home EV Charger

The world is getting both “greener” and “smarter.” Most of us have a smart phone, tablet, and maybe even smart devices like thermostats and smoke detectors in our homes. It’s also likely that you’re doing your part to go green. You might have switched over to reusable bags or upgraded to an electric vehicle. 

If you’ve upgraded to an electric vehicle and you want to marry convenience, energy efficiency, and cost efficiency, then we suggest considering an EV charger installation in Butler County, PA. Today, we’ll spend some time going over the best benefits of this addition to your home. Let’s get into it below…

Do I Really Need a Charger at Home?

This is a question we receive from most homeowners whom we discuss EV charging stations with. In our opinion, you really do need a charger at home. It’s not just a luxury to have at home. If you’ve had your electric vehicle for a while, then you’ve probably discovered that the most ideal place to charge is at home. Yes, more and more places have designated parking spots for electric vehicles, but they’re not always readily available. You know how frustrating it is to see that battery getting low while you’re struggling to find a place to charge your vehicle. You can kiss the days of waiting for a charging port or planning your day around charging your car goodbye with at‌ home charger. 

The Best Benefits

Here are some of the best benefits that make an at home EV charging station worth having.


What’s better than being able to charge your electric vehicle from your garage? You’ll never worry about a service station again. Your days can become more flexible and free. 


You can save yourself a considerable amount of money with an EV charging station at home. It’s an investment, but the operating costs are relatively low and they’re well worth the cost when compared to the prices of gas. 

Home Value

Are you thinking about selling your home in the future? If you are, then it’s worthwhile to invest in your home’s value. One item that has growing value as the years pass is an EV charger. More and more people are choosing electric vehicles and would love to have this.

Professional Service Makes This Investment Worthwhile

If you search for information about EV charging online, you’re going to find many articles and videos instructing you on how to do DIY work. Although DIY work is a possibility, we wouldn’t recommend it. We’d always suggest service from a professional. Professional service is unparalleled because it’s going to make sure that you have the right installation the first time. There’s lots of trial and error in DIY work and you always face the risk of failure if you hire an amateur. Our professionals have the experience and expertise necessary to get your EV charging station installed perfectly.
