OUR INSTALLATION PRICES ARE A GUIDE

The prices on our website for an EV charger installation are a rough guide to help you choose a product that best suits your budget. This is the minimum cost for any installation, but your final quote will depend on a number of factors including:

  1. Cable length - how much extra cable is required to connect your charger to the mains.
  2. Extra equipment - some installations require extra protective equipment such as a Type A RCBO and/or earth rod.
  3. Complexity - depending on the cable route and other factors, our in-house technicians will assess how much time and labour is required to complete the installation.

Every installation and quote is different, which is why we ask you to complete an Online Site Survey so we can give you an accurate and honest quote for your own home installation. 

WHAT DO THE WEBSITE PRICES INCLUDE?

As mentioned above, the prices on the website are a rough guide only and you will need to complete an Online Site Survey to get an accurate quote for your home installation. The prices on the website include:

  1.  The charger (not including delivery)
  2.  Our Basic Installation Package - this is the minimum cost for any installation, but yours could be more.
  3.  The £350 OLEV Grant is already deducted* - we assume you are eligible for the £350 Government OZEV Grant. If you are not eligible, you will not be able to claim the £350.

*Tesla Wall Connector is not eligible for the £350 OZEV Grant

HOW DO I START THE ONLINE SITE SURVEY AND GET A QUOTE?

  1. To get started, click "Request A Quote" on your preferred charger
  2. Fill in the short form. 
  3. We will email and text you a link to your guided Online Site Survey
  4. Follow the instructions and take the photos requested
  5. Once we have all the details required, we will email you an honest and accurate quote.

Summary
+
A premium charger with a premium finish
If it's luxury you're after for your EV charger, then the Andersen A2 is the standout choice with a range of sumptuous finishes to suit any home.
Your charger. Your choice
Choose from an array of premium finishes to suit your home and charge your EV in style.
Quality design and build
+

The Andersen A2 is arguably the most stylish EV charge point available, but it also backs up that style with superb build quality and premium materials.

Dimensions - H494 x W348 x D148mm

Weight - 9-13kg depending on configuration

WiFi and Bluetooth
+

WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity can be used to ensure your Andersen unit will be in communication with the Konnect smartphone app so you can keep track of the charging status and make changes to the charging schedule. 

Unique cable storage
+

Hidden cable and charging gun compartment means everything is neatly stowed away and out of sight, keeping equipment dry too.

Remote locking
+

Stay in control of your charging unit with the Andersen A2 remote locking feature, which is accessed via the app.

LED indicator
+

LED status lights on the front of the Andersen A2 help you quickly identify which mode the charge point is in - charging, ready to charge, or if there's an error.

Built-in earthing protection
+

The Andersen A2 has PEN fault detection technology built in to the unit, which avoids the need for an earth rod or alternative device installing.

7kW power output
+

The standard Andersen A2 is capable of outputting 7kW of power to your EV, which equates to about 30 miles of range per hour (though this is vehicle dependent too).

This is more than enough for most drivers charging overnight, but there is an option to upgrade to a faster 22kW unit - although most UK residential properties (and many EVs) cannot take advantage of this. See our FAQ below on 22kW charging.

5.5m cable included
+

The Andersen A2 comes with a handy 5.5m cable as standard which should be sufficient for most driveways, but you can upgrade the cable length to 8.5m. See our product FAQ below for more on this.

Apple App Store Google Play Store
A feature-rich app for charging
Andersen's Konnect app can be as simple or as in-depth as you like, giving you flexibility over your car charging.
Charge scheduling
+

Set up a charge schedule that suits you, such as matching your off-peak electricity period to save on car charging costs.

Remote lock/unlock
+

Worried about unwanted use of your charge point when you're away? Simple "lock" the Andersen A2 from anywhere in the world using the Konnect app.

Monitor energy use
+

See your energy use for car charging in real-time or view previous usage.

Tracks costs and history
+

The Andersen A2's Konnect app can even give you an estimate of the charging cost, as well as displaying previous charging sessions, so you can have an accurate picture of the cost to "refuel" your vehicle.

Andersen A2 FAQs
Can I get a Type 1 version of the Andersen A2?
+

No, you can only order the Andersen A2 with a Type 2 connection. It is compatible with all Type 2 electric vehicles.

Can I get a different cable length for the Andersen A2?
+

Yes, the Andersen A2 is available with a 5.5m cable as standard or you can upgrade to an 8.5m cable on the 7kW version. If you opt for the 22kW version of the A2 then this is only available with a 6.5m cable.

Can I order a 22kW version of the Andersen A2?
+

Yes. The standard Andersen A2 is capable of a power output of up to 7kW, but you can upgrade to the 22kW version although this version is only available with the 6.5m cable.

However, most UK residential properties cannot meet the electricity supply requirements to support a 22kW charger. In addition many EVs in the UK are limited to charging at 7.4kW or less at home, which means you may not benefit from a 22kW three-phase charge point. Find out if you can have a 22kW charge point here.

Is the Andersen A2 "weather-proof"?
+

The Andersen A2 is built of high-quality materials and designed for use outside. It is rated IP65 for water ingress, so should operate just fine in UK weather conditions.

How do I add the Andersen A2 to the Konnect app?
+

The Konnect app is the accompanying app for the Andersen A2 and where you can control the unit, such as setting charging schedules. 

Our engineers will complete the initial app pairing and setup on installation day, but if you need to re-add the A2 to the app for troubleshooting reasons then check out our Andersen A2 setup guide and Andersen A2 Troubleshooting guide.

Can I get the Andersen A2 in different colours?
+

Yes! The Andersen A2 has the most style and finish options of any charge point on the market. With no less than eight metal colours to choose from, plus an additional four wood finishes, there is plenty to choose from.

Front Panel
Metal - Putty Stone; Laurac Sand; Stanton Green; Southbank Grey; Ruby; Malmo Blue; Steel; Nearly Black
Accoya Wood (additional cost) - Cotswold Oak; Teak; French Walnut; Charcoal

Body Colour
Putty Stone; Laurac Sand; Stanton Green; Southbank Grey; Ruby; Malmo Blue; Steel; Nearly Black

What is the warranty for the Andersen A2?
+

There is a three-year warranty supplied by the manufacturer Andersen if it was installed using the OZEV Grant. Outside of this, there is a one-year warranty. If you encounter any issues under warranty, you should contact Andersen directly.

Does the Andersen A2 need an earth rod?
+

No, the Andersen A2 does not require an earth rod installing at your property unlike some other EV charge points. This is because it has built-in earthing protection.

Installation made simple
Whether its our product reviews, remote site surveys, honest quotes, or in-house engineers, Smart Home Charge makes EV charger installation seamless and straightforward.

Installation FAQs
How do I get a quote for my EV charger installation?
+

If you have an EV or plug-in hybrid, or have one on order, then you are ready to get a charger installation quote. Simply choose the electric car charger you like the look of and select "Request a Quote" at the top of this page. Don't worry if you're not 100% sure on the charger - there will be time to swap this before payment if your change your mind.

Why isn’t my quote the same as the price on the website?
+

Every installation is unique, which is why we ask you to complete our remote Online Site Survey. We need to properly assess the work involved in order to give you an accurate and honest quote. Our website prices are meant to be a guide and show the minimum cost for an installation of each particular charger. So, that means the quote we email to you may be different to the price on the website.

How long will it be until my EV charger is installed?
+

Typically this is 3-4 weeks after payment if you are claiming the Government OZEV Grant and a little quicker if you aren't. The main factors that affect your installation date are your remote site survey completion time, OZEV Grant application, and whether your DNO needs to complete any upgrades to your electricity supply before we install your charger. We keep you updated at each stage of the process, but you can help keep things moving by completing your remote site survey quickly and providing your OZEV Grant application evidence when we ask for it.

My car isn’t listed on your website. Does that mean I can’t get a charger installation from Smart Home Charge?
+

You can still get an installation from us even if you can’t find your vehicle on our website. Simply “Request a Quote” for the charger you like and tell us which vehicle you have in the quote form. Our vehicle listings are updated regularly but are not meant to be a definitive guide – there are simply too many new EVs and plug-in hybrids being launched for us to keep up!

Do you install EV charge points in my area?
+

Smart Home Charge is a nationwide installer, covering England, Scotland and Wales. We have experienced engineers covering all major cities and regions. We have limited capacity in some remote areas, but we will always advise you of availability and any expected lead time before you start your survey.

Will you set up my charge point app?
+

Yes. Our engineers will complete the initial setup and pairing of the charger app with the charge point itself as this is considered as part of the installation. However, the engineers are not required to demonstrate how the app works or set up any schedules for you. We have a number of setup guides, reviews, and troubleshooting articles on our website that may help or you can contact the manufacturer directly.

Will you process my OZEV Grant claim?
+

As OZEV-approved installers, we are able to help you apply for the £350 Grant supplied by the Government towards to the cost of your EV charge point installation. Our team will assess your eligibility for the grant and work with you to supply the right evidence to the Government in order to claim the grant. Your installation will not be booked until we have all the required documentation to submit your claim to the Government. However, as an installer Smart Home Charge does not approve or reject your claim and a successful charger installation does not mean your claim was approved. It can take up to three months post installation for confirmation of approval or rejection of your claim from the Government. To learn more, read our guide to the OZEV Grant and eligibility.

Will my property need works or upgrades to the electricity supply before installation of an EV charge point?
+

Many customers will not need any upgrades to their electricity supply before having an EV charger installed. All installers are however required to notify the local Distribution Network Operator (DNO) of any EV charger installations, who will advise you and us if an upgrade to your property’s main fuse is necessary. This depends on your property’s “maximum demand” estimate, (which is submitted by our in-house technicians to your DNO as part of our process), the size of the main fuse or if your property is on a looped supply (connected to your neighbour). Any potential works will be handled by your DNO and they will contact you directly if this is the case.

Steve Dean went beyond what could reasonably be expected to ensure that the fitting and system worked. He fitted the unit well with cable hidden in the cavity wall and he undertook extensive... trouble shooting with Andersen and Polestar to locate a charge issue that occurred. If all of your engineers are as motivated and dedicated as Steve then you have an excellent team. well done.

Superb from start to finish. Smart Home Charge helped with every aspect of the process, including liaising with DNO when there was an issue with my home fuse. Engineer was excellent, very fr...iendly and knew exactly what he was doing - a brilliant clean install and a very happy customer.
