For electric car owners, a home charging station is the ultimate in value and convenience. If you’re looking for an electric car charging station installation service in Boulder, Denver, Golden, Westminster, CO, or the surrounding areas, look no further than Vectra Mechanical HVAC, Electrical and Plumbing.
If you own an electric vehicle, you’re probably already familiar with a few charging methods. The most basic is Level 1, which requires nothing more than a standard 120-volt outlet. On the opposite end is Level 3, which requires a 480-volt power supply that isn’t practical for most residential applications.
For home use, Level 2 chargers offer a perfect middle ground. They provide quick, convenient charging without prohibitively expensive equipment or excessive power requirements. In fact, all you need to install your Level 2 charger is a dedicated 240-volt outlet wired into your garage. This type of outlet is routinely used for ranges, dryers, and other household appliances that require more power.

An electric car charging station installation may seem more costly initially, but it’s an investment that pays for itself. With your own dedicated charging station, you can:
