Without having prior knowledge or experience in electrical work can put you at risk of suffering high voltage electrocution that can cause bodily harm or death. In addition, incorrectly installed EV charging stations can also cause damage to your vehicle’s battery and has the possibility of starting an electrical fire in your home.

Before installing a new electric car charging station into your home, homeowners should consider the following.

Step 1: Confirm your eligibility 

Homeowners in Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario, need to confirm with their municipality that an EV charging station is compatible with their home.

Step 2: Check your home’s electrical system 

Once you have received confirmation from your municipality, homeowners will then need to book an appointment with a certified electrician to ensure their current electrical system is up to date and safe. This will ensure that your electrical system can accommodate a new circuit breaker for your EV charger.

Step 3: Purchase your EV charger 

Afterward, Kitchener-Waterloo homeowners will need to purchase an EV charging station for their homes. There are numerous stations available, and the Ontario government offers rebates on many of them. Therefore, we recommend homeowners do their research before settling on a unit.

Level 1 charger 

A level 1 charger will be included when you purchase your electric vehicle. These stations can be directly connected to your wall outlet. Homeowners can achieve a full battery charge in approximately 20 hours.

Level 2 charger 

Level 2 chargers are purchased separately from your electric vehicle and have advanced charging performance. These stations perform faster and can fully charge your battery within a couple of hours.

Therefore, depending on your lifestyle, homeowners will need to decide which charging level works best for them.

What Homeowners Say About Dunn Heating’s HVAC Services

“After a weekend away we arrived home Sunday night with no AC. I called Dunn first thing Monday morning and had a technician here within the hour! He explained that the unit could either be repaired or replaced and gave us a quote. We decided to replace the unit and that same morning they had a crew here installing it! The installers were friendly, neat, professional and skilled.
Very happy with Dunn and would recommend.

“In December my furnace started acting up and wouldn’t stay on. I called Dunn Heating that morning and they sent a technician to my house within an hour. Gary had the furnace up and running in no time, and it’s been running great ever since. I have told all my friends about Dunn Heating’s fast and courteous service. I am going to sign up for the yearly maintenance program too. Thanks Dunn Heating!
