The installation of home chargers can be complicated but, here at Chargebase, we aim to make installing your charger as easy for you as possible. But what does installing an EV charger into your home involve? Here is an overview to the five main steps in your installation…
This involves fitting your charger to your wall and running up to 10 metres of safe and immensely strong armoured cabling to your consumer unit (‘fuse box’). The cabling is typically routed along your home’s outside walls.
Your charger connects to your consumer unit. This is where your main electricity supply splits up to power everything from your lights to your cooker. If there is a space to do so the connection is made and a suitable safety cut off device is fitted by us. If not, you will need a Mini Consumer Unit installed to allow us to connect your charger safely.
Some homes require the fitment of an earth rod up to 1 meter in length. Almost every home needs one of these as an additional level of safety. Remember: your charger will carry up to a third of your total electricity supply when charging so safety is paramount.
We are not only a specialist EV charger installation company, we are also a home and commercial electrical company. Because of this, often our customers ask us to undertake additional electrical work in their homes whilst we install their chargers. If you would like any additional work completed by us please let us know.
Our chargers are robust, providing many years of reliable use. To demonstrate our confidence, and to give you peace of mind, all our chargers come with a 3 years parts and labour warranty. If anything does go wrong with your charger we will simply replace it for a new one. No questions asked. For full terms and conditions please click here.
