Benefits of Home EV Charging

If you were working from home during the pandemic and own an electric car, chances are you had all the time in the world to charge your vehicle. The Level 1 EV charger that plugs into readily available standard wall outlets was an easy option back then. But now that you’ve got places to go and people to see, it’s time to “level up” your charging station. Consider these benefits of having a Level 2 EV charging station from Reliance™ right at your doorstep.

Enjoy the Flexibility of Charging Your Electric Vehicle When You Want To

Added bonus if the utility company where you live offers off-peak pricing – you can juice up when it costs the least. If your charging station can be controlled with an app like the Flo Home™ X5, you can schedule charging times and monitor the charging right on your phone or tablet.

Relax at Home

First, you have to find a public charging station and waiting around while your car battery charges up is probably no one’s idea of a fun outing. Get some work done, read a book, and take a nap. We are Canada’s home comfort experts, so we have lots of great ideas on how to make your home somewhere you’ll never want to leave!

Increase Your Property Value

As the number of house hunters with electric cars increases, so does the attractive value proposition of buying a home that already has a Level 2 EV charging station installed. You could increase your property value with this handy convenience.

You Could Pay Less to Charge Your EV

Many public EV charging stations are Level 3 charging stations, and these use direct current (DC) as opposed to alternating current (AC) and can charge your car super-fast. The downside is they are often privately-owned networks that run on pay-per-use, which could end up costing you more than charging your car on your Level 2 EV charger at home.

Your Very Own Electric Vehicle Charging Station

There when you need it, and you get it all to yourself.
