    Types of EV Chargers

    There are a ton of options when it comes to your EV Charging needs – let us take you through them! 

    Level 1 Charging: Level 1 chargers utilize a standard household outlet (120 volts) and are typically included with electric vehicles. While convenient for occasional use, Level 1 chargers have slower charging speeds, making them more suitable for overnight charging at home.

    Level 2 Charging: Level 2 chargers operate at higher voltages (typically 240 volts) and provide faster charging speeds compared to Level 1 chargers. They require professional installation and are commonly found in residential settings, as well as public charging stations. Level 2 chargers are ideal for daily charging needs and can fully charge most electric vehicles in a matter of hours.

    Level 3 Charging (DC Fast Charging): Level 3 chargers, also known as DC fast chargers, offer the fastest charging speeds and are primarily used for rapid charging on the go. These chargers utilize direct current (DC) power and can replenish a significant portion of an electric vehicle’s battery in a short amount of time, typically 30 minutes to an hour.

    Tesla Superchargers: Tesla Superchargers are proprietary charging stations designed specifically for Tesla electric vehicles. They deliver high-power DC charging and are strategically located along major highways and travel routes to enable long-distance travel for Tesla owners. CHAdeMO: CHAdeMO is a fast charging standard primarily used by Japanese and Korean electric vehicle manufacturers. CHAdeMO chargers provide high-power DC charging and are commonly found in public charging networks, especially in regions where vehicles with CHAdeMO compatibility are prevalent. CCS (Combined Charging System): CCS is a fast charging standard widely adopted by European and North American electric vehicle manufacturers. CCS chargers support both AC and DC charging modes and offer high-power charging capabilities, making them versatile options for electric vehicle owners. At R&T Yoder Electric, we offer comprehensive installation services for all types of EV chargers, ensuring that your charging infrastructure meets your specific needs and requirements. Whether you need a Level 2 charger for your home or a DC fast charger for your business, we have the expertise and experience to handle any EV charger installation project with precision and professionalism.

    Electric Vehicle Charger Installation Steps

    The easiest way to install an EV charger is to work with a licensed electrician. EV charger installation starts with having the right type of amperage. As there are two primary types of EV chargers, each has its own power needs. After contacting an electrician, you’ll need to select your ideal location and talk with them to decide if it’s the right spot for your charger. As this step applies to both residential and commercial customers, this means it can be as simple as hanging the charger on the right wall in your home garage or selecting a parking spot conducive to increasing customer traffic.After approving the right spot, your licensed electrician will then evaluate your power situation, letting you know if it will require additional lines to be run, whether any type of trenching and backfilling will be necessary, and if there are any special requirements for the unit you’ve selected.

    Finally, they’ll begin the EV charger installation. Each project should conclude with the area looking pristine, almost as if the EV charger has always been there. That’s the mark of a true expert.And, is(,) by the way, also the level of service we provide to every customer who needs an EV charger installed at their home or business.

    The Cost of EV Charger Installation

    As with any other electrical project, costs can vary. These factors include what changes will need to be made to the existing infrastructure, the type of unit you’re installing, and if you’re adding multiple spots or just a single charger. That’s why we encourage all of our customers to contact us so that we can provide them with an accurate quote that considers all factors. Uploading pictures can help, and our team offers no-obligation/no-contract estimates for all EV charger installation projects.Similarly, the average increase to your electricity bill from charging your vehicle at home can vary widely depending on factors such as your vehicle’s efficiency, local electricity rates, and charging habits. However, estimates suggest that charging an electric vehicle (EV) at home typically adds about $30 to $60 per month to your electricity bill for average usage.

    • Vehicle Efficiency: More energy-efficient EV models require less electricity to charge, resulting in lower costs.
    • Charging Frequency: The more often you charge your EV and the longer the charging sessions, the higher the impact on your electricity bill.
    • Charging Level: Level 1 charging (using a standard household outlet) typically has a lower impact on your bill compared to Level 2 or Level 3 charging, which may consume more electricity per hour.
    • Local Electricity Rates: The cost of electricity varies by location, so areas with higher electricity rates will likely see a larger increase in the electricity bill.
    • Time of Use: Some utility companies offer time-of-use (TOU) plans where electricity rates vary depending on the time of day. Charging during off-peak hours when rates are lower can help reduce costs.

    EV Charger FAQs

    Is this a good investment for my home?

    Imagine you’re a forward-thinking home buyer looking for your first (or next) place to live. While you may not have purchased an EV yet, it’s something you’ve been thinking about for a long time. When walking through a home, you notice that it already has a built-in EV charger in the garage. Suddenly, the home becomes more valuable, even if the actual price of adding an EV charger to a garage is relatively low-cost (compared to other home upgrades). It’s a powerful selling tool, so yes an EV charger is an excellent investment for your home. Whether you’re preparing to sell your property or getting ready to buy your first EV, installing a charger today will provide untold benefits later.

    Is this a good investment for my business?

    Does Ohio get snow during the winter? Of course it does! Likewise, investing in EV charging stations for your business is an excellent way to draw in more business. Think about out-of-town drivers, such as someone from Lima or Youngstown making a day trip to Columbus to go shopping. Mileage-wise, both groups will drive more miles in a single trip that an entry-level EV can charge. While places like Polaris and Easton may have a few EV chargers in their parking garages, not everyone from out of town can charge at the same time. If your business offers EV chargers on-site, it makes it far more likely they’ll visit your locale because of the ease of access. In other words, an EV charging station in your parking lot can boost foot traffic to your establishment.

    What is the actual cost to charge an EV truck or car?

    For decades, vehicle owners have been keenly aware of the cost of refiling their car or truck. $4 per gallon times 20 gallons equals $80 per fill-up. Does the same formula work for charging an EV? To answer this, we need to talk about power consumption. The cost to charge an EV will differ based on where you live, your current power consumption, and the type of charger you install. However, in the long run, an average charge can save you money. How so, exactly? The typical rate to charge an EV (at home) from zero to full is between $50 to $100 ($5 to $10), depending on your battery capacity and power consumption. Compare this to the typical fill-up at gasoline rates, and you’ll quickly see how an EV charger installation can save money!

    Do customers care about EV chargers?

    In a word, yes! EV chargers allow customers to easily access your place of business, build healthy customer relationships, and demonstrate your commitment to sustainability. Everyone’s heads turn when they see one of the newer EVs drive up next to them along the highway. Electric vehicles have entered the public consciousness, and as more and more businesses support this initiative, it will only grow in popularity within customer expectations. To look at it another way, 10 years ago no one cared about tap-to-pay functionality. Today, some customers won’t even visit a retailer unless they offer it. EV charging stations are the next step in this customer expectation process.

    Can I use EV charger availability in my marketing?

    We highly encourage you to do so! As you’re installing your EV charger, post about it on your social media. Use it in your advertisements. When performing Pay Per Click campaigns, target demographics that reflect the behavior of a typical EV owner. Marketing is how you get the word out about your business, and when you add EV charger availability to your marketing messages, it communicates a ton about your business and its commitment to helping our planet overcome environmental issues.

    What is the difference between a Level 1 and Level 2 charging station?

    For homeowners looking to install an EV charging station in their garage, there are two types of charging stations. We’ll talk more about these in more detail shortly, but essentially they are known as “Level 1” and “Level 2” charging stations. The primary difference is the rate at which they charge your vehicle. Based on your typical driving behavior, you may elect one over the other.

    I have an older cinder block garage. Will an EV charger installation work?

    Although we hesitate to say yes or no, we’re confident that we can figure out a way to make just about any garage setup work. Be sure to contact us and send us photos to get a full estimate on your EV charger installation. Considerations for a home-based EV charger installation Home-based charging installations have a variety of factors to consider, but the most important one is whether you’ll need a Level 1 or a Level 2 charger. As we mentioned, the primary difference is the rate with which the charger provides electricity to your EV. Is one better than the other? It depends on your needs. Let’s break them down individually.

    Which is better for my home?

    When deciding which type of EV charger is right for your home, it will essentially boil down to your usage. How often do you drive? How far do you drive when you leave your home? Do you run a lot of errands, work from home, or have kids with extensive commute needs (we’re looking at you high school sports parents)?

    Generally speaking, we would recommend that most homeowners choose a Level 2 charger. Even if you primarily work from home, and even if you homeschool your kids, nothing beats the convenience of being able to pull out of your garage early in the morning with a full battery. Depending on when you last drove your EV, a Level 1 charger may not provide you with the battery expectations or needs that you require.
