EV Chargers Require A Licensed Electrician

Firstly, it is important to note that EV charger installation in your north Brisbane or Sunshine Coast home or business must be done by a licensed and insured electrician. Installing an EV charger is major electrical work that cannot be carried out by people without professional skills, qualifications and a valid electrical licence.

Types Of EV Chargers

There are two types of EV chargers available in Australia: Level 2 and Level 3. Level 2 chargers are the most common. This type can be installed in both homes and businesses and they use a 240-volt AC power supply. Level 2 EV chargers fully charge your car in approximately 3 to 6 hours. Level 3 chargers, on the other hand, are high-powered chargers that use a DC power supply. These can fully charge an EV in under an hour and are typically found in public charging stations. Level 3 chargers are not recommended for home use.

EV Charger Installation Process

Before installing an EV charger, it is important to have Sparc Electrical conduct a safety inspection of your home or business power systems to ensure they can support the increased electricity demands. Our local electricians will check your switchboard to make sure that it can handle the additional load of the charger. In some instances, we may recommend a switchboard upgrade for the safety of you and your loved ones.

After completing our safety inspection of your north Brisbane or Sunshine Coast property, the professional electricians from Sparc Electrical begin the installation process. Typically, this involves running wires from your switchboard to the charger site. We’ll then install the charger itself followed by comprehensive safety and functional testing it to make sure it is working properly.

Other Considerations

When choosing an EV charger, it is important to consider factors such as the type of connector required for your vehicle. The charging speed and the cost of your charger also needs to be investigated, as well as the warranty and support provided by the manufacturer.
