If you’re contemplating the acquisition of a Tesla or another electric vehicle, it’s imperative to have an electric car charging port conveniently situated in your garage, allowing you to effortlessly recharge your vehicle at home between your journeys. Here at Alexander Services, we take pride in extending our professional expertise for Tesla wall charger installations to our fellow residents in the Holly Springs, North Carolina vicinity. We’re Tesla Certified to install Tesla-branded charging ports and systems, so call today to schedule your appointment and discover the convenience of charging your car at home.
Installing Electric Vehicle Charging Ports in Your Home
Many people are turning to electric vehicles for the environmental benefits, lower energy costs, and reduced consumption of fossil fuels as gas prices increase. Tesla is one of the top brands in the EV market, and ensuring proper EV charger installation for your new Tesla vehicle is essential to get the best energy efficiency when charging your vehicle at home.
Smart Charging Solutions for a Tesla
Tesla charging ports are proprietary, meaning you can’t just plug your car into a wall outlet — you need a special connection to charge your Tesla at home. As a licensed Tesla charging installer, we can install a proprietary Tesla charger. We can also purchase an appropriate J-plug adapter for your Tesla vehicle and install a standard Level 1 or Level 2 charger.
When should you choose a Tesla wall charger installation compared to a generic charging port? If you intend to keep Tesla as the only electric vehicle brand in your home, proprietary Tesla charging stations will be perfect for your home. However, if you have more than one electric vehicle and at least one is a brand besides Tesla, you might benefit from a generic EV charger installation with an adapter for your Tesla vehicle.
We offer both Level 1 and Level 2 charging installation for Teslas and other electric cars. A Level 1 charger uses a standard 120-volt outlet and can take as long as 18 hours to fully charge your battery. A Level 2 charger requires a dedicated 240-volt circuit but can charge a vehicle in as little as three hours.
Our EV Charging Services
At Alexander Services, we offer a wide range of services to plan and install electric vehicle charging ports in customer homes. Our services include:
- Inspecting your current circuit breaker and wiring so it can handle the additional load
- Recommending a suitable charging system for your Tesla or other electric vehicles
- Installing a 240-volt outlet and breaker with additional wiring
- Mounting the charging equipment and connecting all wiring without overloading any other circuit
We’re licensed, insured, and certified by Tesla to sell and install Tesla-branded charging ports and equipment.
Watt and Amperage Requirements for EV Charger Installation
If you don’t mind slower charging, a Level 1 charger will be sufficient to keep your Tesla charged for normal commuting to and from work and running local errands. However, longer trips that run down your battery can require as much as 18 hours to recharge your battery fully with a Level 1 charging port. A Level 1 charging port only requires 120 volts from a standard outlet, which can also lower installation costs.
A Level 2 charging port requires a 240-volt connection, which most homes don’t have. We can inspect your carport or garage and rewire certain areas to accommodate a new 240-volt circuit with its own circuit breaker panel.
If you need an exterior Tesla wall charger installation for your driveway, you’ll need a weather-tight charging port with a cover that’s rated for high winds, heavy rains, snow, and other weather hazards. No matter what type of charging port you need, our experienced electricians can complete the necessary wiring and panel upgrades to install your electric car charging station at home!
