I am still looking into a home charging unit , i hoped to put into ion my side wide so it can be used at the back of my house ( in garage) or at front in driveway . I am still waiting on Quotes because my smart meter has not been installed yet.
This may mean it's not a standard installation so i am just a bit concerned tere may be quite a considerable additional cost .
Has anyone else done this ? Do they have to lift flooring etc or do they run it like a cable along the wall. I'm either looking at EO ( maybe through Octopus ) or Zappi , neither need a earthing rod which i believe is better .
just looking to get a ballpark to plan budget wise , the distance may be about 5-6 feet
To answer your original question, installers are unlikely to lift floorboards to install the wires from the meter to outside unless you pay a premium or arrange for the floorboards to already be lifted when they arrive. Most likely they will want to run them along a wall in trunking but it will not be inconspicuous are the cables are quite thick.
I'd suggest lifting the floorboards yourself or paying a tame builder (if you know one) to do it for you.
