Make Your Garage Charging Station Compatible With Your Garage Opener
Speak with your Providence garage door installation provider before you make any decisions about your garage charging station, also referred to as Electric Vehicle Service Equipment or EVSE. They will be able to tell you whether or not your existing garage door opener is compatible.
Things to Consider
You have to ensure that your garage is wired properly, which is best done by professionals, before anything else. Safety should always be at the forefront of your thoughts when it comes to installing garage door openers and electric charging stations for your garage. If the garage is not wired properly, it can be highly dangerous and cause fires or worse. It is also a good idea to have an EVSE that is movable and that has a long connector for the ultimate in convenience and to prevent the need for two stations in the long term.
Benefits of a Garage Charging Station
Once, your garage door opener and wiring are compatible with your home garage charging station, you are ready to reap the rewards. You can write off some of the expenses for both your personal and business taxes. Many companies offer incentives to individuals who drive electric cars over traditional cars. By having a home charging station in your garage, it adds a level of security for you and your car during the charge and it protects you from having to charge it in bad weather. If you have solar energy, your costs of owning a vehicle will be even less. And it is a far more efficient way to charge your vehicle rather than to plug it directly into a standard outlet, as well as being safer.
