EV Charger Installation in San Jose, CA

Home Car Charger Installation in San Jose, CA

Not all electric cars have sufficient range to cope with public charging points and stations. But what if one has right at his/her home? That’s where our residential electricians in San Jose can install an EV charging station in your garage or home to ensure your transportation is available all day. We will bring you the latest technology, including chargers and cables, so you can start using your car as soon as possible.

Installing electric chargers need expertise as most homes in San Jose produce close to 120 volts of electricity, which is not enough to help charge your car. We at Emelco Electric help in providing the right guidance and services that are easy on your wallet as well as your time. 

Not only that, we provide maintenance and guidance in getting the best installation work that you can find.

Charging your Electric Car at Home

No one wants to keep on the lookout for their “fuel tank” all the time and if you’ve invested in an electric car then look no further than our cost effective options in San Jose, CA. 

Our charger installations have different time frames for installations with them taking as long as 12 Hours to complete (we’ll get into the options that we have later).

These home electric car chargers are determined on your budget and you can trust Emelco Electric to provide the best solutions all across San Jose. So all you’ll have to do is plug in the charger into a wall socket (designed by us) and let the electricity do the rest. 

Level 1 & 2 EV Charger Installation

Providing you with different choices in regards to your car and budget is the goal for our electricians and we have the following two options

  • Level 1 EV Charger
  • Level 2 EV Charger
Level 1 chargers are the most basic type of electric vehicle charger. They are typically installed in a home garage and used to charge a vehicle overnight (around 12 Hours). 
These chargers use a standard household outlet and provide a charging rate of 3-4 miles of range per hour of charging.
Level 2 chargers are more powerful than Level 1 chargers, and can charge a vehicle’s battery in a fraction of the time. 
They require a higher level of electrical input, so they are not as commonly found in residential settings, being able to top up SUVs & other rides. However, if you have access to a higher-voltage outlet (240 volts), then a Level 2 charger may be the best option for you.

Tesla EV Wall Chargers

The Tesla EV Charger is an electrical device that can be used to charge your electrical vehicle. The charger comes with built-in software that allows you to monitor and control charging and enable Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) reading capabilities. This means you can track how much electricity you’re using and how much longer it will take before your battery is fully recharged. 

An optional wall adapter kit is available for both models of EV charger that allows you to charge your car at home or in another location away from the wall outlet—such as on vacation! Moreover, the charger comes under three categories:

  • Level 1 (120 volts)
  • Level 2 (240 volts)
  • Level 3 (480 volts)
