Level 1 Vs. Level 2 Chargers
When considering EV charger installations, it’s important to understand the difference between Level 1 and Level 2 chargers. Level 1 chargers typically come with the vehicle upon purchase, and can be plugged into a standard household outlet. While convenient for occasional or overnight charging, Level 1 chargers have lower charging speeds and may not meet the needs of EV owners who require faster charging times.
Though Level 2 chargers require professional installation, they can utilize higher voltage power sources. This means they offer significantly faster charging speeds, making them ideal for daily or frequent charging. Kuhlman Electric specializes in Level 2 charger installations, providing EV owners with faster and more efficient charging capabilities.
Types of EV Chargers Available
There are several types of EV chargers available, catering to different car models and charging standards. Kuhlman Electric has expertise in installing many different types of chargers, including:
- Combined Charging System (CCS), a.k.a. SAE Combo
- Tesla Superchargers
Our technicians can easily install these chargers in your home so you can quickly and conveniently power your car at home.
CCS (SAE Combo)
CCS (Combined Charging System), also known as SAE Combo, is a popular charging standard for electric cars. It combines both AC (alternating current) and DC (direct current) charging capabilities into a single charging port. CCS chargers support a wide range of electric cars, making them a versatile choice for EV owners.
With Kuhlman Electric, you can count on professional installation and setup of CCS chargers, ensuring optimal performance and compatibility with your electric vehicle.
CHAdeMO is another type of charging standard widely used by Japanese car manufacturers. It stands for “Charge de Move,” emphasizing the ability to charge while on the move. CHAdeMO chargers enable high-speed DC charging, providing EV owners with quick and efficient charging options.
At Kuhlman Electric, our experienced electricians are well-versed in CHAdeMO charger installations, ensuring seamless integration with your electric vehicle and delivering fast charging speeds to keep you on the road.
Tesla Superchargers are a proprietary charging network designed specifically for Tesla vehicles. They offer high-speed DC charging, allowing Tesla owners to charge their vehicles quickly and conveniently.
Kuhlman Electric is a preferred installer with Tesla, meaning we have the expertise and knowledge to handle Tesla Supercharger installations with precision and care. Trust our experienced team to ensure a smooth and reliable installation, empowering you with the fast charging capabilities that Tesla Superchargers provide.

EV Charger Installation FAQs
Do I need an electrical service upgrade?
At Kuhlman Electric, we understand the importance of evaluating your existing electrical system to ensure it can support the charging demands of your electric vehicle. Our licensed electricians can perform an electrical load calculation, taking into account factors such as your house’s square footage and existing electrical appliances.
Based on this assessment, we can determine if an upgrade is required to accommodate your charger. If an upgrade is needed, you can count on us to handle the process seamlessly, providing you with the necessary electrical capacity to power your EV charger effectively.
Will any EV charger work for any electric vehicle?
When it comes to EV chargers, compatibility with different electric vehicles is an important consideration. While there are universal chargers available, it’s crucial to select a charger that is compatible with your specific electric vehicle. Kuhlman Electric understands the intricacies of different charging systems and can help you choose the right EV charger that matches your vehicle’s requirements.
Whether you own a Tesla or another electric car brand, our team has the expertise to ensure a proper installation that maximizes the charging capabilities of particular types of electric cars.
The term NEMA refers to the National Electrical Manufacturers Association, which sets standards for electrical products and equipment. While some cars can be charged using NEMA adapters, it’s important to note that they may not provide a long-term solution.
Kuhlman Electric recommends wired electric car charging stations over relying solely on NEMA adapters, as they offer more reliable and efficient charging. Our expert team can guide you through the pros and cons of NEMA outlets versus hard-wired chargers, ensuring you make an informed decision for your EV charging needs.
