MasterCraft Home Improvement offers professional Tesla charger installation services in the San Diego and Riverside County areas.

We offer affordable Tesla charging stations available in wall mount configurations for the garage and exterior freestanding options.

We also offer full-service installation of any charger that is currently available as long as they are compatible and up to local electrical code. For example, we can install wall chargers, high-power chargers, and level 2 chargers.

Our #1 recommendation is that you use the CT4000, which is the best solution for homeowners who want the most affordable, efficient, and simple solution for integrated storage.

The CT4000 is the first ENERGY STAR® certified EV charger because it charges efficiently and conserves power when not charging. It uses significantly less energy than a standard EV charger when in standby mode to help you save money on your utility bill.

According to Tesla, the recommended home charging installation option for Tesla vehicles is a 240-volt NEMA 14-50 outlet. This outlet is commonly used for electric stoves and recreational vehicles. Installed with a 50 amp circuit breaker, this outlet enables a recharge rate of about 37 kilometers per hour.

For most Teslas, it only takes about an hour to charge from 40% to 80% on a 220V system, but another two hours to go from 80% to 100%.

The difference between 40% and 80% on a 100kWh battery is about 25 miles of range. The difference between 80% and 100% is about 17 miles of range.

FAQ’s

How often should you charge your Tesla?

We recommend charging every night to top off the battery. A good way to keep track of it is to charge up to 90% for regular use, or to 100% if you’re preparing for a longer trip.

How long does it take to charge?

The lower capacity battery in the Tesla Model 3 will take the same amount of time to charge from 40% to 80% as the S and X models, but will take around 4 hours to reach 100% charge. It will remain at 100% charge for 5-6 hours, at which point it will automatically start to discharge and trickle charge back to 100%.

Where should I install my charger system?

To install the charging station, we’re assuming you have space for and are willing to dedicate a special space for the charger.

How much does it cost to install an electric car charging station in my garage?

The cost of an electric car charging station installation depends on the level of complexity of your project as well as your location. For a basic installation. In the San Diego and Riverside County area, expect to pay from $4,500 up to over $7,000 for a fully-automated home charging station.

Can you plug a Tesla into a regular outlet?

Technically, you can connect your Tesla to a standard 110v plug receptacle with the free adapter that comes with the car.

Tesla’s free adapter turns a standard 110v plug into a DC charge plug. This free adapter is just a free gift that Tesla gives you, to say thank you for choosing our car.

With a standard 110v plug receptacle, you can plug your Tesla into an outlet for about 3 miles of range per hour with the adapter that comes with the car. It’s not practical though; it’s like putting gas in your car with an eye dropper.

The reason for the longer charge time is that the power is being supplied to the battery at a lower rate than the battery can accept it.

In addition to being painfully slow, charging at a standard outlet also puts surges and spikes on the grid. Those surges and spikes invoke a safety mechanism on the grid. A standard 110v outlet is too small to handle the surge and spike problem. So, the grid shuts down and you get an error message on your dash. Not a good experience.
