Kennihan’s Step-By-Step Guide to an EV Charger Installation

Switching to an electric vehicle (EV) is a big win for the planet and your wallet. But to keep it charged and ready to go, you’ll need a special charging station at home. That’s where getting help from the pros, like us at Kennihan Plumbing & Heating, Inc., makes all the difference when it comes to your charging station installation. We’re here to walk you through why having an expert install your EV charger in Butler, PA, is a smart move. Let’s break it down.

Safety First

Electricity isn’t something to mess around with. Trying to install an EV charger on your own can be dangerous; handling electrical components poses a risk of electric shock, fire hazards, and other safety concerns. Our team of licensed master electricians knows exactly how to handle the installation safely. When you choose Kennihan’s for your EV charging installation, you’re choosing peace of mind.

Protecting Your Home

Did you know that setting up your charger the wrong way could damage your home’s electrical system? It can lead to issues like electrical surges that not only jeopardize your vehicle’s battery but can also harm your home’s appliances and electrical infrastructure. Our crew makes sure your charger is installed with the utmost care, keeping your home and everything in it safe and sound.

Prevent Overload

Your house has a limit on how much electricity it can handle at once. Add a charger without planning it properly, and you might overload the system. A professional installation takes into account the existing load on your power system and strategically integrates the EV charger to prevent overloading. We figure out the best way to add your charger without putting too much pressure on your home’s electrical system.

Strategic Placement

Where your charger goes matters a lot. You want it somewhere convenient but also out of the way so it doesn’t turn into a trip hazard or an eyesore. Our experts recommend installing them in places like garages or where your EV is parked most frequently. This not only provides easy access but also keeps charging cables tidy and out of the way, making charging easy and keeping your home looking neat.
