Frequently Asked Questions

Yes indeed! Mainstream is fully equipped to handle the installation and repair of your electric vehicle (EV) charging station at home. Whether you’re integrating it with solar panels for a renewable energy solution or connecting it directly to the grid, our technicians are proficient with smart home technology and the latest advancements in EV infrastructure.

Some vehicles may be used as power source and backup generator. For example Ford makes a truck called the F150 Powerboost.  It is a hybrid truck that uses a 3.5L V6 coupled with electric motors and a hybrid battery.  It is capable of generating up to 7200W at 240 Volts and can be connected to someone’s house using a manual transfer switch. It has been around for several years and seems to be well liked.  You can get more information about it on the Ford website.

Never try to install an EVSE (electric vehicle supply equipment) by yourself. As with any other electrical work you need to have done at your home or office, you should always rely on your licensed electrician to do the work properly, safely and up to current code. Your electrician will need to check the wiring and establish that you have the proper circuitry installed to ensure safe and effective operation of the electric car charger. Although this may seem more expensive up front, the electric vehicle charging outlet installation service provided by Mainstream Electric will keep you and your home and electric vehicle safe and prevent more expensive problems down the line. In fact, your electric car warranty, and the EV charger warranty may be voided if the EVSE is not properly installed by a licensed electrician in the first place, so don’t risk your safety over this! 

Yes, Mainstream’s licensed electricians are qualified and experienced professionals who can install EV chargers. They possess the necessary electrical expertise and knowledge of local electrical codes to ensure a safe and compliant installation.

Home automation represents a significant advancement in the way we interact with and manage our living spaces. It encompasses the technology-enabled automation of various household systems, appliances, and activities. This innovative approach allows homeowners to control, monitor, and manage their home’s utilities and features remotely through internet connectivity.

At its core, home automation is about transforming a traditional home into a “smart” home, equipped with interconnected devices that communicate and operate together to enhance the homeowner’s convenience, comfort, and security. These smart devices range from lighting, heating, and air conditioning systems, to security cameras, door locks, and even kitchen appliances. With home automation, tasks like adjusting the thermostat, turning off lights, or monitoring security cameras can be done from anywhere in the world using a smartphone or computer.
