How to Charge Your Electric Car at Home
14th Apr 21
If you would like electric vehicle charging installed, then Griff Services Ltd is here to help.
We are an authorised installer under both the Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS) and the Workplace Charging Scheme (WCS), meaning that our customers can receive government grants towards certain approved systems.
If your electric vehicle charger is not working or you are looking for a service maintenance agreement, we will be happy to assist. For more information on electric vehicle charging, approved systems, and information on how to obtain a grant, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Charging your electric vehicle at home is a much more straightforward and altogether cheaper process than charging it on a public network such as a petrol station.
Home charging systems give you the luxury of simply plugging in your car and leaving it. It will switch off and even send you a text message when it is ready to use again.
Here at Griff Services Ltd we don’t just install electric vehicle charging points. Our extensive knowledge and experience in this field allows us to offer a design service as well as call options and maintenance packages for your existing units.
Using a standard 13-amp socket is not recommended due to a number of factors.
Firstly, it will make the recharging process painfully long, taking up to 12 hours to fully recharge your car. Secondly, house wiring was never designed to withstand such intense electrical loads for prolonged periods of time. Charging an electric car via a wall socket is extremely likely to deteriorate your house wiring, putting you at an increased risk of fire.
Griff Services Ltd offer a variety of alternative charging solutions to suit your individual requirements. This includes freestanding pedestal units; wall pods; networked solutions for car parks or block of apartments; as well as commercial and industrial heavy duty and vandal resistant options too.
We work with all major car manufacturers and our electric vehicle charging sockets are compatible with booth Type 1 and Type 2 connectors.
We can source products from most manufacturers however, in 2016 we become an official EO partner. All of our installations come with workmanship warranty.
Whether you are looking for a domestic installation with the aid of a government grant or are trying to accommodate a charging point at work, Griff Services can help you do both. Interested in electric cars and want to explore more? Check this website for facts and figures.
Along with the big contracts I know you usually work on the professionalism and quality of work you provided for me on a one off job was truly outstanding. I have had many previous encounters with tradespeople who are late (or never show up) and only do half a job, and ask for more money than originally quoted. To my relief Griff Services have been an absolute pleasure to do business with and I have recommended their services to my colleagues, family, and friends who are in the Construction trade.
The team at Griff Services are very friendly and have superb attention to detail. They have installed a number of our chargers, and the service they provide us is great.
Michael at Griff has done work for me both commercial and residential. Excellent ability to understand and execute every job with a great attention to detail and positive attitude.
We needed to replace solar panels inverter and Griff Services quoted a very sensible price. They were able to do the installation only a few days later. It was all done in a day, with no disruption and a great deal of efficiency and courtesy. We were exceedingly impressed by Michael’s conscientious approach, both to the original discussions and the planning process, and also to the execution of the job. He was a pleasure to meet and to have around the place. Thank you, Michael.
We were really impressed by the professionalism of Griff Services and would recommend them in the future. The work was undertaken well and we had positive comments regarding the corporate identity of Michael and his co-worker and the company vehicle.
Meeting Michael and the GRIFF team was a breath of fresh air. Michael and his entire team were on-hand and available through the whole process to cope with the inevitable challenges of a project this size, and their ongoing quality assurance throughout the programme ensured that on move-in day, we did not even have one item which was not fully operational. I would thoroughly recommend GRIFF tor commercial projects of any scale.
The EV charging point install was very tidy and efficient. Happy to recommend Griff Services in future.
