Installing an EV charging station at your home or business provides convenience and sustainability benefits, but it is also necessary to consider the risks such as service interruption and downtime. Even a single station going offline can divert time and resources from your core business. Therefore, the need for an EV charging station maintenance warranty is highlighted.
By providing regular maintenance and support, the EV charging station warranties can help extend the lifespan of the charging station and prevent the need for costly repairs or replacements.
The lifespan of an EV charging station is approximately 8 to 10 years, but maintenance, servicing, and repairs should be ongoing. That’s not a reflection of the quality of hardware or firmware. It’s simply an acknowledgment that EV charging stations are typically placed in harsh outdoor environments, exposed to extreme heat and cold depending on the season, and not always treated with kid gloves by motorists.
Exposed or damaged wires
Changes (usually a reduction) in charging speed
Cracks or burns
Network issues that affect payment processing
Screen display failures
As part of your preventative maintenance routine, it’s important to keep plugs and cables clean and dry and to check for any cracks or dents in the station housing.
24/7 online support
Routine network and firmware upgrades
Remote proactive monitoring, troubleshooting, and performance management
Hardware parts repair or replacement
Onsite repairs if necessary
In many cases, the downtime could be brief (firmware update) or quick to fix (cable repair), but the frustration for your customer can linger. With a maintenance plan in place, you can get your station back up and running faster, and minimize the expense of unplanned downtime. Grasen EV charging stations offer a standard 2 years warranty and can be extened to 5 years. Please contact us for details.
In conclusion, an EV charging station warranty is an important consideration when installing a charging station. It provides peace of mind, ensures the charging station remains in good condition for longer, reduces risks associated with malfunctions, and serves as a valuable marketing tool. As the world continues to transition towards electric vehicles, investing in a charging station with a solid warranty is a smart choice for homeowners and businesses alike.
