As more and more people are investing in electric vehicles, the idea of home charging has become a prominent one. If you currently have an electric vehicle, you may have even considered investing in a home charging station. We’re going to share with you some of the top reasons you should highly consider doing so below.


Probably one of the biggest benefits of adding an EV charging station to your home is its convenience. You don’t have to worry about looking around your area to find an open charging station or wait for your vehicle to charge. You can simply pull into your garage, plug your car in, and forget about it. The best part is that it will be fully charged up and ready to go for your next ride.

Faster Charging

Having an actual EV charging station at your home can allow you the ability of the fast charge. This charging rate is similar to what you’ll find at public EV charging stations.


While having rapid charging stations in popular public places can be convenient, it can also be costly for EV drivers. When you’re able to charge your vehicle at home, it’s can save you money. Even better, you don’t have to worry about paying for it upfront. Rather, you simply pay for the charge when your electricity bill arrives.

Longer Battery Life

Recent studies have revealed that only using rapid charging stations can cause your battery to have a shorter lifespan. This is thought to be due to the overheating effect that happens to the battery during its rapid charging experience. When you have an EV charger at home, you can use a slower, more consistent charge.

In fact, most EV owners simply plug their car in overnight so that it’s fully charged in the morning. The longer life you can get out of your battery, the more you’re maximizing your financial investment.

Increased Property Value

Apart from making life more convenient for you, adding an EV charging station to your home can do wonders for enhancing your property value. When you go to sell your home, home buyers who also have an electric vehicle are going to perceive your home as having a higher value because of its charger. It’s a great selling point.

More Predictable Prices

One commonly overlooked benefit of having a home EV charging station is that it allows you to enjoy charging your car at the energy price of your home electric provider’s rates. While it’s true that you can’t control the cost of energy in your area, it doesn’t skyrocket overnight. Your energy provider will alert you of any rising costs well before they come into effect. If you rely on only public charging stations, it may vary at different locations or change without notice.
