Will an EV charger increase the value of my home in Leeds?
The UK government have announced that as of 2030, there will be no new petrol or diesel cars available for purchase. This historic leap will be introduced to bring the UK in line with global net-zero targets.
As such, drivers and homeowners will start to consider EV charging points for their own homes.
This is positive news for early birds keen to make the switch before the 2030 deadline, as Rivervale Leasing, a car leasing company based in Brighton, found in 2021.
Rivervale completed a study of 1,000 homes across the UK to see if house prices increased if EV chargers were installed.
Results showed that there was on average a 13% increase in local house prices if the home had an EV charger installed. In Bradford, homeowners saw a 43% increase in house prices.
By taking up the mantle of electric vehicles far sooner than the 2030 deadline, you can enjoy the benefits of EVs and make your property more valuable.
How quickly can you install an EV charger?
Homeowners can often worry about how long installation will take and this can be a major stumbling block to switching over to an EV.
However, the installation process is likely to be much shorter and less impactful than you think.
The time it takes to install the charger depends on various factors, including:
The installer’s allotted labour hours
The type of charging unit (model and tethered or untethered function)
The location of the unit in relation to the electricity supply
Whether the installation requires a PME (Protective Multiple Earth) device
Whether additional work needs to be carried out to complete the installation
Although every installation is unique, on average, you should expect a standard installation to take between 2-6 hours, though this can be shortened if you prepare your property and paperwork before the installer arrives.
EV chargers come in a range of sizes and, as such, Downtown Electrical has a unit suitable for every type of home.
For example, the EO Mini Pro charger 2 is the most discreet, fastest charging EV charger available on the market and is perfect for properties with smaller charging spaces or homeowners who wish to hide their charger.
For the more technically minded, the Zappi EV charging station marries British-made quality with smart features and intelligent software. The Zappi offers faster charging and utilises the cheapest tariffs available throughout the day, reducing the cost of charging your EV.
Excellent professional service. George and Glenn overcame a number of problems, including significant delays with Northern Powergrid. They did so in a very professional and friendly manner and I would definitely recommend them to other… More businesses considering the installation of EV chargepoints.
Installing the charge point for an electric car outside our 400 year old house was a challenge which required experience and inventiveness beyond most installers. Downtown Electrical were extremely helpful through every stage of planning… More the installation, and did a fantastic job on the day. I thoroughly recommend them.
Took my hamster to these guys for an operation and they injected it in the wrong place - unfortunately he died.. Do not take your pets to this company. Or your Hoover.Only joking, they did an amazingly efficient job installing a podpoint… More charger at my home this morning and George was massively knowledgeable and efficient throughout. My initial enquiry was dealt with in the most prompt and professional way I have ever experienced with any company actually. I highly recommend them.
