Are you tired of the ridiculous gas prices that seem to be gouging your monthly budget? Of course, you are. We all are, but there isn’t really anything we can do about it. Or is there? You can’t change the price of gas, but you can change how much gas you use without taking up walking or changing you’re your commuting habits. An electric car is one way you can save yourself some money without riding a bike 30 miles to work. You will want to investigate the nuances of electric cars and the chargers that go along with them. An electrician in Salt Lake City can help explain the difference in the chargers offered with electric cars. The team at Captain Electric, LLC is here to help you.
An electric car will run for about 35 miles or so on a full charge without ever using gasoline. Unfortunately, that won’t get you very far on most days. Even if it covers the distance to and from work; if you work the following day, a standard Level I charger will not give your car a full charge overnight. This is why you need the services of an electrician. Salt Lake City residents who want to take full advantage of their electric car will want to invest in a Level II charger. This kind of charger returns the car to a full charge overnight or in about 6 to 8 hours. The slower charger can take up to a full 24 hours to fully charge the car.
A special 240-volt outlet is needed to run the Level II charger. This isn’t a standard outlet and requires the services of a Salt Lake City electrician. The job is relatively quick and easy for a trained professional. If you are ready to take control of your gas bill, give Captain Electric, LLC a call today.
