Electric Car Chargers in Manchester
EV Charger Installation & Ongoing Support for Central & Northern Maryland Customers
Electric vehicles are becoming increasingly popular in Maryland due to the fact that they're extremely environmentally friendly and can provide a fantastic source of cost-effective transportation for families all across the state. However, electric vehicles are generally rated for much shorter ranges than traditional gasoline-powered cars, meaning they need frequent, perhaps even daily charging. Rather than parking for hours at a time at your local charger, wouldn’t it be more convenient to simply charge your vehicle at home?
At Thomas & Thomas Electric, we can outfit your home with an EV charging station that is designed to maximize your charging speed, improve safety, and improve charging conditions in order to better maintain your vehicle’s battery. We install electric car chargers that offer you the convenience and functionality you need so that you never have to worry about your vehicle’s charge level after a night plugged in. We offer quality service that ensures that not only does your new system function properly, but that it’s connected correctly to ensure safety and maximized charging capacity as well.

How Do Electric Car Chargers Work?
Electric vehicle chargers serve two crucial purposes: they invert power from your home’s grid to DC current so that it can be stored in your car’s battery and used by its motor, and they scale voltage down to the correct level so that your vehicle can charge at a safe speed. While your vehicle can plug into a wall socket as normal, the onboard charging system is much smaller than an external charging unit, and this dramatically slows down the charging process. This is why even a small battery when plugged into a normal wall socket can take upwards of 12 hours to charge properly.
We install charging systems for all makes and models of vehicles, including:
What Are the Benefits of Installing a Charger at Home?
Although it is possible to charge an electric vehicle at a public charging station, there are a number of advantages to charging your vehicle at home. It's faster, it's free, it's more convenient, and you won't have to worry about leaving your car in a public space for an extended period of time. With a home charger, you will always have access to your charger whenever you need it. No waiting, no struggling with charger access, and no worrying about charging fees adding up over time.
How Do You Choose the Right Charger?
Because electric vehicles are growing in popularity, there are a wide variety of charger types available on the market. EV chargers come in various “levels” that deliver different outputs and are designed for different types of properties. It can be difficult to know which charger would be best for your family. The good news is that our knowledgeable electricians at Thomas & Thomas Electric can help you find the perfect charger for your needs.
It’s a good idea to consult with your vehicle’s manufacturer to see if they recommend any charger models for your vehicle. However, if not, they should also provide charger specs that we can then use to make a recommendation based on popular models available on the market.
In order to give you access to the broadest selection of quality EV chargers, Thomas & Thomas Electric has partnered with Qmerit, a nationally trusted name in electrification and EV charging technology. As certified Qmerit solutions partners, we're able to utilize the latest technologies and ensure that our customers get the best charging equipment the market has to offer.
