As electric vehicles (EVs) become the norm, more properties will need EV home chargers to plug into. Jewson's range of home and workplace EV wall chargers is growing all the time, along with accessories like EV charging point wall signs, protection barriers and ground mounting bases.
The car charging unit itself has several crucial characteristics and at Jewson you can choose between a tethered EV Type 1 or EV Type 2 charger, or an untethered charge point to plug into using the manufacturer-supplied cable that came with your vehicle. You can keep any wiring safe and sound using fixings and accessories from our cables and cable management range.
There are also a number of different power ratings of home charger for electric cars, starting from a 3.6 kW car charger that places the least demand on your power supply, but also takes the longest to charge the vehicle. A 7.2 kW EV charger will be much faster and, as a medium solution, a 7.2 kW car charger can be a good choice for domestic installation.
Alternatively for even faster charging, an 11 kW EV charger or 22 kW EV charger is the way to go. An 11 kW home charger can be used in domestic properties if the mains supply is strong enough, and usually requires a three-phase supply.
Because an EV home charging point can generate heat, if charging your vehicle in a garage or enclosed environment, consider installing ventilation. Our Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery (MVHR) systems are a great option, recovering the heat energy to help cut down on your utility bills and protect the environment at the same time.
