How To Prep Your Home for an EV

Mercedes-Benz EV Charging

Choosing a Mercedes-EV model to help you take on your Westport adventures allows you to enjoy impressive performance without having to visit a gas station. Mercedes-EV models offer an impressive range and quick charging times so that you can take on your Norwalk drives in pure confidence.



While you can visit any public electric vehicle charging station, we know that you most likely want to experience electric vehicle charging batteries in your own home. But before you can experience electric vehicle charging batteries at home, you’ll want to ensure that your home is ready for the installation of an electric vehicle charging station. Learn how to prepare your home for an electric vehicle today with Mercedes-Benz of Fairfield!

Steps To Prepare Your Home for an Electric Vehicle

Before you look into an electric vehicle home charger, there are some things you’ll want to take care of first so that it’s a seamless experience. While you can enjoy electric vehicle charging batteries with a standard Level 1 charger via a standard wall outlet, having a Level 2 electric vehicle charging station installed will result in much quicker charging times. Here’s how to prepare your home for an electric vehicle Level 2 charger:

  • Confirm Level 2 Charging: As we mentioned, you can opt for Level 1 or Level 2 charging. Level 2 charging may require slightly more power but can result in quicker charging times. We recommend you consider if Level 2 charging is right for your Weston lifestyle before you take the next steps.
  • Organize Your Garage: Next, you’ll want to clean out and organize your garage before. Doing so will ensure that you know exactly where you want your charger installed for easy access when you need to charge up your Mercedes-EV model.
  • Find a Professional: It may be a good idea to hire a professional so they can confirm if your home is capable of handling a Level 2 charger. They’ll likely need access to your power panel. We suggest you work with Qmerit for details on installation.
  • Chargers: There are many different types of Level 2 electric vehicle home chargers you can opt for, so be sure to do your research. We suggest the ChargePoint Home Flex Level 2 charger, designed to work with your Mercedes-EV model seamlessly.
  • Installation: Finally, coordinate with an electric vehicle home charger installer to complete the installation. If you’ve been working with Qmerit to confirm if your home is capable of a Level 2 charger, we suggest you continue to work with the experts at Qmerit for the final installation.
