Job Site Conditions

New Hope is a place of picturesque charm, known for its historic homes. Our customer’s residence showcased a blend of old and new, evident in its multiple electrical panels. Some were just five years old, while others had seen fifteen. These electrical panels were too old and did not have enough amperage to handle the electric vehicle charger that the homeowner wished to install. The task at hand was to establish a dedicated line that would span from the utility room, traverse the basement’s ceiling, penetrate into the garage, and finally reach the charging point station. The customer also needed the EV charger installed once the proper electrical panel was ready to go. 
The twist to this EV charger installation: the customer wanted to maintain the home’s aesthetics, and conceal approximately 100 feet of wiring.

Job Details

Our team at McHales took this challenge head-on. After assessing the job conditions, our team determined that this EV charger needed its own dedicated circuit so that the charger could perform optimally. EV chargers are high-powered to ensure rapid charging for the customer’s prized Mercedes, making every drive a convenience and joy. A dedicated line is a separate electrical circuit or connection solely reserved for a specific device or appliance, ensuring a consistent and uninterrupted power supply. The dedicated line also limits the risk of power surges, which often occur when multiple appliances or devices are sharing a circuit. 


We supplied the required wire and straps, addressing the customer’s absence of these items. Upon locating the installation spot, we promptly ran conduit, connected breakers, ensured safety, tested, and labeled the dedicated circuit. Positioned approximately 25 horizontal feet from the charger, our 50-amp electrical panel ensured accessibility and efficiency. Once the panel was secured, McHales installed the EV charger. 

Safety and Aesthetics

In addition to the electrical panel installation, we implemented an Eaton Home Surge Protector. This device safeguards all electronics from the potentially damaging effects of electrical surges. The visible LED indication provides peace of mind, assuring the customer of their electronic investments’ security.

The job was not complete, however. To preserve the home’s aesthetics, McHales added crown molding over the wiring, seamlessly integrating it with the beautiful interior.
