Having an at home charging station for your car is more efficient and more convenient. It eliminates the need to take trips to local charging stations and having to wait around for the battery to be recharged. You can program most chargers around your personal schedule and needs, so it’s ready for when you actually need it. By programming it to replenish at 50% or 80% battery level, you can lengthen the life of your battery. Over time, you will actually save money. After the initial costs, you will no longer need to be paying at the public charging stations as they often use a pay-as-you-go model. There are multiple fees that these electrical charging stations charge like pay per minute, including by session, per kilowatt, and sometimes even an idle. Charging at home, especially during non-peak hours overnight, will save you money.


The rise of Covid-19 has led to an increased amount of consumers charging at home. More than half of electronic vehicle drivers said that they charge their vehicles less in public now. There has been an enormous decline in public charging since the pandemic has begun. Many public charging stations are not properly maintained to the correct level of cleanliness, because they are privately owned.

Whether you’re worried about the pandemic, about wasting time waiting around for your car to charge, or even wanting to save money, now is the perfect time to get an at home charger installed. Our master electrician is able to install them no problem. Let Twin City Heating and Air make charging your electric vehicle more convenient.
