Many of us are starting to do more and more to reduce our carbon footprint and thinking of ways to live a greener lifestyle. A new technology that is becoming increasingly popular is electric vehicles. With the implementation of home car charging it is becoming much more cost effective and convenient to run an electric vehicle.
However, it is not quite as simple as plugging your vehicle into your existing electrical sockets. The sockets that are typically found in our homes are not designed to take the constant load of electricity that an electrical vehicle will draw and in doing so may create a range of problems. Using a standard 13 amp socket will also severely restrict the rate of charge and will more than likely take up to as long as 12 hours.
By installing a specialist domestic car charging unit you can have the confidence that you and your family will be safe and avoid the risk of fires and other serious accidents. A specialist domestic car charging unit will also dramatically increase the speed in which your electrical vehicle can be charged. This can often be completed in as little as 3 hours. These specialist units are fully waterproof and therefore can be installed either inside a garage/outhouse or on an outside wall.
