First, you’ll need to decide which station you want to purchase – use the buying guide to decide which station is best for you.
Once you’ve decided, talk to your electrician and provide the electrician tip sheet to make sure you have the correct outlet and circuit.
That depends on your current set up and which station you purchase. Here’s a tip sheet for your electrician who should be able to provide you a quote.
Most existing high power plug outlets found in a garage like a dryer outlet won’t work because they typically use a 30 Amp circuit. Home requires a dedicated 20 Amp (for the 16A/12 RPH) or dedicated 40 Amp (for the 32A/25 RPH).
No. You must have a licensed electrician install a 20 A breaker, confirm the existing wiring is adequately sized and install the NEMA 6-20 outlet.
No. Have a licensed electrician install a 40 Amp breaker for use with Home 25 and confirm the existing wiring is adequately sized.
