Why Install a Home EV Charger?
What Are The Two Types of EV Home Chargers
At home, you can use the slow charger that comes with an EV or install a wall charging unit. The manufacturer’s slow charger has a standard 3-pin UK plug to insert into a domestic electricity socket. This option is easy to use and transport.
The best option is a home wall-mounted charger if you use your EV frequently. An electrician can place the charger on the side of your home or in a garage. Wall EV chargers are easy to use and will deliver a full charge to a battery in hours. The exact recharge time depends on several factors, but even with a relatively low charging power of 11 kW, a 60-kWh battery will be full and ready to go in under six hours. With a powerful 22-kW charger, charging the same battery takes less than three hours.
Where to Install an Electric Car Home Charger
If you live in a detached, semi-detached, or end of terrace house, you’ll need a driveway, garage, or other off-street parking space close to your home for the installation. The charging cable cannot obstruct a public pavement or road.

Electric Car Charger Installation Cost
The cost of an EV charger depends on the charging speed and any smart features you require. A lower-end basic 3kW charger costs around £120—a faster 7kW unit costs in the region from £300. Smart charging units with remote smartphone control will set you back between £500 and £1,100, depending on the features.
A fitter will need to review your preferred location for the charger and how close it is to the home’s electrical circuits. The installation may cost more if you want the charger placed far away from your fuse box. In some cases, the wiring may need upgrading, adding to the cost.
What Are Untethered And Tethered Chargers?
When researching home EV chargers, you will see untethered and tethered charger options. These terms refer to the type of cable connected to the charger. A tethered charger has a permanently attached cable with a Type 1 or Type 2 connector, which is the ideal charger if your home has a single EV, as all you need to do is park the car and plug it in.
