How to Install an EV charger
Installing an EV charger seems like a daunting task, but in terms of electrical jobs, it’s relatively quite simple. You can provide a safe, professional installation by following these easy steps.
When you arrive on-site, before you get started, the first thing you must do is carry out a quick risk assessment.
Take the customer through the installation process. Show them what you will be doing and allow them to agree on where to install the charger.
Inform the customer you will need to turn off the electricity supply in the property so you can wire the charger to the mains.
Once the electricity supply is off, you can now get to work. Start by drilling and mapping out where the cables will run to the fuse box.
Mount the cables as you wire them to the fuse box. Provide trunking, as this will keep the wiring nice and tidy and secure to the wall.
Once you have finished wiring up, you can give the charger a check over to make sure everything is working correctly.
Once everything has been done, show the customer how to use their new EV charger and run them through all the extra features the charger may come with.
Full instructions and guidance for specific EV chargers can be found in the provided instruction manual, or on the manufacturers’ website.
