As more businesses and homeowners are investing in electrical vehicles there is an increase in charge point installations in both work places and homes. As a result, questions such as ‘does my EV charging point require maintenance?’ are becoming increasingly normal. So, what will your EV charger require from you?
There is currently not much significant data available on the lifespan of or average maintenance required for EV’s, charging points and EVSE components due to the technology still being relatively new. You can however rest assured knowing that charge points require very little upkeep and maintenance post installation!
In terms of everyday care, here are some simple points which will help extend the lifespan of the technology:
The overall system should be kept clean and free from dust
The charging cable should be stored securely to avoid damage
As with other electrical systems, we can advise that a yearly check is completed for general wear and tear. This is due to the units being exposed to outdoor weather conditions, assuring that no health and safety issues occur.
