4 FAQs About EV Charger Installation in Dallas


Electrical vehicles are becoming increasingly more popular. However, as they're still relatively new, finding public EV charging stations in the Dallas-Fort Worth metro area when you're on the go can be difficult. Fortunately you can charger your electrical vehicle from the comfort of your own home. Here are four frequently asked questions (with answers!) when it comes to EV charger installation.


When Is The Right Time To Get An EV Charging Station?

Typically, electrical vehicles come with a Level 1 120-volt charging cable, so you don’t to have a home EV charger before purchasing an EV.

However, we recommend scheduling a consultation with a trusted electrician before your EV is delivered. The sooner you start the process, the sooner your charging station will be installed, and you’ll be well-versed in how they work and rolling in no time.

Can I Charge My EV In A Standard 120-Volt Outlet?

The short answer is yes, you can charge in a standard outlet, but the reality is that it is an impractical and unreliable method of charging for most electric vehicle owners.

It could take days to charge your EV with a Level 1 charger, which can be an incredibly frustrating experience. Most homeowners opt for a Level 2 charger to meet their needs.

What Are The Differences Between Level 1, 2, and 3 EV Chargers?

When selecting an EV charging station, there are three types of chargers:

  • Level 1 chargers take 40 to 50 hours to fully charge a battery but are accessible to those with only 120-volt outlets.
  • Level 2 chargers take four to 10 hours to fully charge a battery and require a dedicated circuit for a 240-volt outlet.
  • Level 3 chargers, also known as Direct Current Fast Charging (DCFC), charge electric vehicles up to 80% in as little as 20 minutes. They’re not generally offered as an option for homeowners because they’re so expensive to purchase and maintain, and most homes do not meet the electrical requirements.

Most electrical vehicle owners opt for Level 2 chargers.

What Should I Look For In An EV Charger?

There are plenty of EV charging stations on the market for home. They each offer an array of features in order to try to make your life easier. Features you may want to consider include:

  • Compact and durable design
  • UL certification for safety and peace of mind
  • Wi-Fi enablement for smart monitoring
  • A companion app to view data and manage charging
  • Cable management for safety and aesthetic
