EV Charger Outlet Installation Orlando, FL
Many people across the country are trying to find ways to make their homes and their habits greener and better for the planet. One way that you can do this is by investing in an electric vehicle. The benefits of owning an EV go far beyond the environmental considerations. You’ll also get to skip high gas prices and long lines, especially if you install an EV charging station in your home.
In order to do this, you may have to have an outlet installed in your garage or wherever you want to have your EV charging station. At A-Lumination Electric Inc., we offer EV charger outlet installation services and everything else you need to get your home set up for your electric vehicle.
Local EV Charger Outlet Installation in Orlando, FL
Your outlet needs will be different depending on what kind of charger you have and the current setup of your electrical system. You may even have the outlet that you need already installed. You can check with your local electrician in Orlando FL to see what you’ll need to get your charging station set up. We offer many different outlet installations such as 120V and 240V outlets.
What Type of Outlet Do You Need?
If you are wondering what type of outlet you need, a good place to start is to call your electrical contractor in Orlando, FL. Our electricians can walk you through the requirements. You’ll learn most of what you need to know by deciding on the type of charger you want to use in your home. Here are the types of chargers that are typically used for residential charging stations.
Outlets for Level 1 Chargers
A Level 1 charger is the type of charger that electric vehicles come with when you first buy them. They can be plugged into any normal outlet in your home. You may know them as 120V outlets. Most people already have them in the garage. However, if you need to have an outdoor rated 120V installed outside or if you don’t already have one in the garage, let our residential electricians know, and we’ll put one in for you.
Outlets for Level 2 Chargers
Level 2 EV Chargers are the most popular option because they charge much faster than a Level 1 charger. They can also still be supported by most residential electrical systems while keeping to electrical code standards. For a Level 2 charger, you’ll need a 240V outlet. This is the kind of outlet that you have behind your washer and dryer. This is not a common type of outlet to already have installed in your garage so it’s likely that you’ll need an outlet installation before you get your EV charger.
What About Level 3 Chargers?
Level 3 chargers are the type of chargers that are used in commercial settings. They are not usually supportable, or even allowed, in residential areas. Most local electricians that offer residential services only install Level 2 chargers and outlets.

Additional Electrical Needs for EV Chargers

Every house is different, so having an electrical contractor in Orlando FL come out and take a look at your electrical system can be helpful. We’ll check the capacity of your system as well as the availability of current outlets and the health of your electrical wiring.
Electrical Panel Upgrades
To keep up with electrical code standards, you’ll need a 40-50amp circuit for your Level 2 charger. It works best when it has a dedicated circuit that doesn’t have anything else, like lights or other outlets, on the circuit. You don’t want your circuit breaker tripping in the middle of the night, leaving you without a fully charged vehicle! You may need to upgrade your electrical panel if it doesn’t have the ability to add an extra circuit. Our residential electricians will let you know.
Some electrical rewiring may be needed the ensure the safety of the system during the installation of the outlet. Our local electricians will make sure you know everything there is to know about our services before we start.
