Why you should charge your EV at home

EV charging

The vast increase in the number of electric vehicles on the road has been very much welcomed, as more and more people begin to see the benefits of going electric for themselves. EV owners have discovered that they are often cheaper to maintain, cheaper to run and it goes without saying that they are helping out the environment massively.

When it comes to discussing the pros and cons of electric vehicles, a common item which comes up is charging points. Whether it’s about the worry of finding one, or the cost when you finally do, charging points is a big topic for debate.

The benefits of charging at home

Well, one way to rid yourselves of these worries is to charge your electrical vehicle safely and securely from the comfort of your own home! EV charging points can be installed on the wall of your home, or in your garage – right where you park your car. This is considered the most convenient way to charge your EV, as you no longer need to worry about where to charge before work. Instead, you can set off with peace of mind knowing that you have a full charge.

Added convenience

It is common knowledge that public charging points take longer than it would to fill your car up with petrol or diesel. However, when you are charging your car overnight or during a day at home – the amount of time it takes causes no inconvenience. If your workplace has a commercial EV charging point then you can get it on charge during the workday, ready for your next commute.

Save money, save the planet!

Not only are they more convenient than having to go out of your way to find a public charging point, but they are actually cost-effective to have on your own premises. The installation of an EV charging point can also be eligible for a government grant, which is a huge advantage when it comes to saving money, as well as saving the planet!

So if you’ve joined the EV revolution, then add even more convenience to your charging experience with a home EV charging point. Here at West Yorkshire Electrical, we’re experts in installing EV charging points, so get in touch with the team today.
