5 Benefits of an At-Home EV Charging Station

June 15, 2023

You may love your electric car, but it can get stressful trying to find a charging station. Not every gas station has one, and your local options may not always be available. Instead of wondering where the closest charging station is and if it’s open, consider these five benefits of installing an at-home EV charging station. You may find that installing one on your own property is the wisest decision you can make after buying your electric vehicle.

1. Convenience

There's no denying that there's a level of convenience in being able to do things from the comfort of your own home. Access to a charging station at home means you can always charge up before you get on the road.

2. Cost Effective

Not all electricity costs the same. Many electricity companies actually charge you less for the power you use at night compared to the energy you use during the day. Charging your electric vehicle at home overnight will likely cost you less than you’d spend using public charging stations during the day.

3. Guaranteed

Few things are more frustrating than driving to the closest charging station and seeing that someone is already using it, or worse, there's a line. One of the most significant benefits of an at-home EV charging station is that the only people ever using it are entirely up to you.

4. Increased Value

Installing an EV charging station in your home may seem like a costly investment, but it may not be as expensive as it looks. There are many tax write-offs for focusing on sustainable energy, and having a charging station can increase the value of your home if you're ever looking to sell. It may not be immediate, but you can often recoup the cost of your investment over time.

5. Better for Your Battery

Almost any battery lasts longer when you give it one full overnight charge instead of relying on short quick bursts to charge it and get back on the road. Allowing your vehicle to charge for eight hours at home will help the battery last longer than if you charge it twice for four hours throughout the day.
