How Do I Tell If My EV Home Charger Needs Maintenance?
Your home charger may require maintenance or repairs for a few reasons, usually due to general wear and tear of the charging cable, electrical outlet, or other components.
Reasons your charger needs maintenance include:
Visibly damaged components are the most obvious sign your charger needs maintenance. Damage can come from the weather, accidental knocks, or rough handling, and can lead to the charger working slowly or not at all.
If you’ve noticed your car is charging more and more slowly, it could be a sign something is wrong with your charger. Slow charging times can come from low voltage, cold weather, as well as unseen damage. It’s a good idea to get a professional to take a look at your charger and diagnose the problem.
To avoid more costly repairs down the line, you should also have routine maintenance carried out once a year.
Solar Service can provide an expert engineer to thoroughly check the safety and efficiency of your charger’s components. They will analyse how well it’s performing, then diagnose and fix minor problems before they become major.

Frequently Asked Questions About EV Charger Maintenance
Here are answers to some of the most commonly asked questions we get about EV charger maintenance.
How long does EV charger servicing take?
The exact time it takes to perform maintenance on an EV charger depends on what needs to be done. A major problem may take several hours to solve, while a regular check up can be completed much faster.
At Solar Service, we always strive to carry out charger repairs or maintenance as quickly as possible, without sacrificing the high quality of our service.
How do I keep my EV charger in good condition?
Taking care of your charger reduces the need for maintenance and keeps it running well. The best way to do this is to keep it clean. Use water to wash the outer shell of your charging point, but only use a dry cloth to wipe down the cable (charging cables are water resistant, but not totally waterproof).
