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.

SPREAD THE COST

If the upfront cost of an EV charger installation is a bit tough to swallow, why not spread the payments out through our monthly finance option?

Try out our handy finance calculator tool to preview different deposit amounts and terms. Your actual monthly payment will need to be confirmed after your installation has been quoted, as our website prices are an initial guide.

Smart and intuitive
The Ohme Home has an attractive price, but the software really sets it apart helping to take away the hassle of charging your car. The advanced EV charging app also makes the Ohme perfect for use with time-of-use tariffs like Octopus Agile.
Smarter charging
The Ohme Home Charger may look unassuming, but hidden under its exterior is super smart charging tech.
Slimline looks
+

The Ohme doesn't try to wow you with superficial styling, instead focusing on one mission - charging your car. Nonetheless, it is still a small and sleek charge point.
Dimensions - H239 x W89 x D53mm
Weight - 3.5kg

Mobile data connection
+

The Ohme is unlike most other charge points in that it uses a built-in 3G/4G mobile signal to connect to the Ohme data centre. This can be much more reliable than the WiFi connections of other EV chargers, especially if your charger will be located relatively far away from your home WiFi router. The data use is also free.

LCD screen and LED lights
+

The Ohme features a small, but handy LCD screen as well as LED indicator lights which help you quickly identify the status of the the charger, such as charging, waiting to charge or if there's an error.

7.4kW power output
+

The Ohme Home Charger is capable of charging your vehicle at 7.4kW, which works out around 30 miles of range each hour depending on your vehicle.

5-metre cable included
+

The Ohme Home Charger is a tethered charge point, which means its integrated cable is permanently attached. The Ohme cable length is five metres as standard.

The most advanced charging app
The Ohme Home Charger app does the hard work for you and can save you money on your car charging too.
Syncs with your energy tariff
+

By telling the Ohme app which electricity tariff you are on, it knows what the prices are and when the cheapest rates are available. This means it can automatically start and stop charging to help you save money on car charging. 

Intelligent charging
+

Simply tell the Ohme app how many miles you'd like adding to your vehicle by which time and let the Ohme do the rest. It will meet your desired target and charge at the cheapest electricity rates (depending on your energy supplier).

Perfect for Octopus Agile
+

The Ohme's ability to automatically charge your vehicle when electricity prices are low means it is the perfect companion for the Octopus Agile energy tariff. Octopus Agile prices follow wholesale costs with half hourly rates - the Ohme makes it easy to charge your EV on a time-of-use tariff like Agile.

Price cap
+

Don't want your vehicle to charge above a certain price, such as your peak day rate? Simply set a price cap in the app and the Ohme will not charge your EV unless prices fall below this limit.

Monitor charging costs
+

See your past charging sessions with details on start and stop time, energy delivered, and estimated cost.

"Green" charging
+

The Ohme app knows how carbon intensive electricity production is at any given time. If you prefer, the Ohme can charge your vehicle when there is more renewable energy in the grid.

Off-peak charging
+

Plan charging around your off-peak electricity using the scheduling feature. For example, set the charger to charge your vehicle between the hours of 12am and 4am.

Ohme Home FAQs
Is there a set-up and troubleshooting guide for the Ohme Home Charger?
+

Yes there is, you can find them under the guides section of our website or by clicking the links below:

Can I get a Type 1 version of the Ohme Home?
+

Yes, you can still order a Type 1 version of the Ohme Wall charger if your vehicle has a Type 1 connection. This is a special order, so please contact our support team to enquite about lead times and costs.

Can I get the Ohme Home with a longer cable?
+

The Ohme Home Charger comes with a five-metre cable as standard. There is no option to upgrade the cable length. If you aren't sure if five metres is long enough to reach your vehicle from where the charger will be, take a look at our guide to EV charge point location.

Is there a 22kW version of the Ohme Home Charger?
+

No, the Ohme Home Wall Charger is only available as a 7.4kW unit. Most UK residential properties cannot make use of a 22kW charger anyway and 7.4kW is more than enough for the majority of EV drivers. Find out why in our guide to 22kW three-phase charging.

Is the Ohme Home Charger "weather-proof"?
+

The Ohme is rated at IP54 for water ingress and is designed to work outside in all weathers.

How do I pair the Ohme charger with the Ohme app?
+

Our engineers will complete the initial app setup on the day of installation. However, if you need to re-add your Ohme charger to the accompanying app post-install then you can follow the instructions in our Ohme Setup Guide.

Is the Ohme available in different colours?
+

No, the Ohme Home Charger is only available in black currently.

What is the warranty on the Ohme Home Charger?
+

There is a 3-year warranty on the product supplied by Ohme. Any issues under warranty should be dealt with directly by Ohme.

I have a poor mobile phone signal where I live. Can I still use the Ohme?
+

The Ohme has its own SIM card to connect to the UK's mobile data network. It doesn't connect directly to your mobile, but your phone is a good indicator as to whether the Ohme will function correctly in your area.

The Ohme uses 3G and 4G across a variety of networks, so it works well in most areas in the UK but it is worth checking what your mobile phone signal is like in the exact location you want the charger. If it's not particularly strong, you may be better off with a charge point that connects to your home WiFi (assuming that is within range).

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
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.

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.
