Like any electrical system, EV chargers may need repairs or replacements

It is a best practice to have the same company who installed your EV charging station be the one to work on it for repairs and replacements so there is familiarity with the unit, your home, and any special care that needs to be taken into account.

After all, the contractors who installed your EV charging port in the first place are best equipped to perform repairs since they are familiar with your home and setup.
