Do I need to be a homeowner to install an EV Charger?

What types of smoke detectors are there?
There are two common types of sensors in smoke detectors:
- Photoelectric sensors are best used near kitchens and bathrooms and are not fooled by steam.
- Ionization sensors are best for detecting faster fires with lots of flames and less smoke.
Do I need GFCI?
A Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter is a safety feature that compares the hot wire to the neutral wire at the outlet. If there is a difference of 1/10,000th of an ampere, the outlet will trip. These are required in the wet locations of your house such as kitchens and bathrooms.
What are the benefits of a backup generator?
- Continuous power supply
- Power for the entire house
- Automatic transfer of power at outage start
- Automatic shut off when power returns
- Functions at all times home or away
- Works with your LP or Natural Gas
- Eliminates safety risks from CO because it is outside your home
What's the difference between hard-wired and battery operated smoke detector systems?
Hard-wired smoke alarms connect to your home’s wiring and electrical system. They often require professional installation and may not work during power outages without a battery backup.
On the contrary, battery-operated smoke detectors are easier to install but need attention every year to change the battery.
The average smoke detector is good for 10 years of operation! We recommend investing in a 10 year sealed battery smoke detector.
