Read what others are saying about American Mechanical

We think that they were a really good company. They do a lot of different things; we used them for electrical and plumbing. We have used them a number of times and we had a couple of things that needed to be looked at before the house went on the market. They are really good about explaining what they are doing and why they are doing it. They are very prompt and they are just a good company to work with. Their prices are very good. I will definitely use them again. "

- Virginia R ., Virginia Beach, VA

My tenant had received an excessively high water bill and we were trying to find the cause. The technician came out within the time window provided, and the office called ahead of time to let me know he was on his way and what his name was. He checked the meter, checked all plumbing, and only found a small drip at outdoor faucet. He told me it was probably just a washer that needed changing and said he could fix it, but would have to charge extra. It would be easy to do myself. He had a chance to really gouge me with a huge repair. Extremely honest and helpful! I would absolutely use them again. Scheduled an HVAC guy to come out that same day. Wish I had gone with American Mechanical instead! "

- Emily K ., Chesapeake, VA

The repair was in rental property so Chuck called and said he would meet us there - he was exactly on time. The toilet in the master bathroom was acting strange, sometimes it would flush correctly, sometimes hardly at all. Chuck worked on it for a few minutes and told us there was calcium buildup -- for a 35+ year old toilet that was understandable. He suggested that we could save money by buying a toilet ourselves and he would install.
“The next day we met him at the house with the new toilet and he installed it in about an hour! Everything worked great, he cleaned up everything and when he left the only way you could tell he had been there was that there was a new, working toilet in the master bath. Chuck did an excellent job, price was right and we will certainly use American Mechanical in the future. "

- Bruce G ., Virginia Beach, VA

The technician used a camera on the end of a "plumber's snake" to check the drain lines under the house and from the house to the street sewer main line. He removed a minor blockage in one area. The tech was on time, friendly and informative. It's nice to have service from someone who clearly enjoys his work and knows what he is doing. He was happy to explain what the video monitor was showing and to answer all of my questions. I will definitely use this company again. "

- C. B ., Williamsburg, VA

The plumbing technician who came was here promptly, called before he came, and was very professional in his manner and his work. He gave me a price up front after he looked at what needed to be done. The work was completed satisfactorily and he left no mess behind for me to clean up. I was very satisfied with their work and would not hesitate to call them again when I need other work done. "

- Patricia B ., Smithfield, VA

Excellent experience. Unbeknownst to us we do not have an accessible clean-out so not only did he have do go into our crawl space to access the line, he also had to call a co-worker to help out. They really didn't have to honor to deal but we are so grateful that they did. They were professional and explained the process to us clearly. They cleaned up beautifully afterwards. I would definitely use them again and recommend them highly. "

- Maria Z ., Virginia Beach, VA

Chuck did a good job checking out our water heater, which had begun to leak after ten years. He arranged to replace the old heater with a new one within two days. Cost of the heaters keeps going up, but the service was quick and professional. American Mechanical arrived on time, drained the old heater, removed it from our 2nd floor attic, and replaced it with a new water heater in less than three hours. The diagnostic fee was subtracted from the total cost, and Chuck assisted me in finding the current discount coupon. "

- Bruce B

American Mechanical sent Joel to snake out and video-inspect my sewer line. On the agreed-upon date, Liz at the office called before Joel left the office, well within the time we had set aside. I found him prompt, personable, and efficient, and I am pleased that I understand the systems of my house a little better. "

- JoAnn H ., Virginia Beach, VA

Previous plumber used for renovation project messed up the pipes under tub/shower when putting in new unit. Space to work in was extremely tight and not sure if could easily be fixed without doing a complete pipe replacement. He figured out a way to chip away tile around knobs and get to the area needing repairs. Fixed with next-to-nothing damage and working like new. Prompt house visit to diagnose issue. On time for the job to be done. Work finished in slotted amount of time. The gentleman was professional and very courteous. I even called his manager to tell him what a great job he had done. "

- Angela F ., Virginia Beach, VA

My most recent experience with them was for a sewage backup. I called them on a Sunday morning for a sewage backup. They were here within a couple of hours of the call, called to let me know they were on the way and got the problem taken care of in about an hour. They were professional, well priced and treated me with respect and compassion for the situation we were in with the backup. I have used them for heat/air, plumbing, and electrical and have yet to have a bad experience. I have used them since 1999 and will use them again. "

- Tracy H

Performed annual generator maintenance for us. They also fixed a leaking toilet tank. We've used them for several years and have always been very pleased with their work and professionalism. Definitely recommend. "

- Derek W

We wanted a company that could provide servicing for our HVAC system as well as our new home generator and American Mechanical fit the bill. Chris came out and thoroughly inspected everything, took his time and didn't rush. He also didn't try to sell me on something I didn't need, which is unusual these days. Chris was professional, respectful, knowledgeable and a heck of a nice guy. I will definitely continue using them for our yearly maintenance and any repairs we may need down the line. "

- Betsy T ., Virginia Beach, VA

Chris arrived on time and was very professional. While maintenance contracts in Hampton Roads tend to be expensive, American Mechanical provided fair discounts for bundling two A/C units and a home generator. The maintenance took slightly longer than planned since Chris found the upstairs A/C unit had never been serviced and was leaking. His knowledge of the systems and what was needed to keep them operating efficiently appeared better than several other venders I have used in the past. Overall this was an excellent experience. "

- Bruce B

A/C compressor gave up the ghost. Unfortunately it was on a 90 degree day. Joe came out and assessed and agreed it was the compressor. I had proof of the warranty. Joe was here the next morning and installed the new compressor and capacitor. The system is up and working. Liz at American Mechanical performed the magic that resulted in a one-day decision for repair. The part was in stock. 24 hours after the initial service call I was in a rapidly cooling house. Thanks Joe! Thanks American Mechanical. "

- Pat L ., Chesapeake, VA

Our 25-year old air conditioner decided to die in the middle of summer. We hired American Mechanical to replace our outdoor unit and the air handler that was in our attic. They installed a new Trane system and it is working great so far. Three technicians came to our house to take away the old condenser and air handler and installed the new ones. They were very courteous and professional, took off their shoes when coming in the house, and put down drop cloths all the way from our front door up the stairs to the attic so as to protect our floors and prevent them from getting dirty. "

- Allison B ., Norfolk, VA

A++++ Very professional, prompt and reasonably priced! I am so very impressed with the entire American Mechanical team. The job went perfectly from start to finish! I would highly recommend them. I was also impressed at the level of excellence provided by the customer service reps answering the phones. They were friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful answering all of my questions. They've got a happy customer for life in me and I can't wait for the chance to recommend them! "

- Lisa W ., Virginia Beach, VA

Our A/C unit has had a leak since last summer and our furnace stopped working right before Thanksgiving. We had four different companies give us estimates and American Mechanical was the best choice for us because of the added value of the included 10 year warranty on the system. Most of the other companies wanted us to join some club and/or pay extra each month for a 3 year warranty. This company was very professional and great to work with. They cleaned up all of their mess and were very respectful of our home while working. We did have a problem with the condensation tube not being insulated properly and our system stopped working just a few days after being installed but they came and fixed the problem immediately (at no charge, of course). We are very happy with the service and quality of work that was provided to us by American Mechanical. "

- Diana S ., Virginia Beach, VA

They were punctual and very courteous. They even checked a couple other outlets for me while they were at my house. I will definitely use them for my electrical needs in the future. "

- Jeff K ., Chesapeake, VA

We had an issue with a bathroom receptacle and an outdoor lighting system. Very good work, showed up as promised, ready to go to work and took care of our problems. He had a recommendation for the outdoor system that he could not address and I followed it and was very satisfied. "

- Eric D ., Smithfield, VA

The electrician checked all of the outside and bathroom plugs to determine why they were not working. He solved the problem with the plug causing the others to short and replaced three plugs. He also checked the circuit panel. Figuring out what was causing the problem took over two hours. The electrician was courteous, professional and thorough. He fixed all of the plugs that had not been working. I also had him check the circuit box for the hot tub. "

- Teresa, A ., Virginia Beach, VA

We think that they were a really good company. They do a lot of different things; we used them for electrical and plumbing. We have used them a number of times and we had a couple of things that needed to be looked at before the house went on the market. They are really good about explaining what they are doing and why they are doing it. They are very prompt and they are just a good company to work with. Their prices are very good. I will definitely use them again. "

- Virginia R ., Virginia Beach, VA

I used American Mechanical to change a front door light. They came out right according to our schedule. They are excellent. "

- Hailu A ., Virginia Beach, VA

Replaced exterior receptacle, cover, and gasket to repair ground fault circuit. The electrician spotted the problem immediately and made the repair in just a few minutes. I was very happy with the service. "

- Ted P ., Chesapeake, VA

Tested and repaired a faulty GFI in the bathroom, as well as rewired and repaired a faulty GFI in the garage. Contractor was on time and efficient. I would use American Mechanical Inc again. "

- Robert I ., Virginia Beach, VA

Electrician John G. was on time and promptly did the job in an efficient and professional manner. He even swept up left over debris from the job. "

- William N ., Chesapeake, VA

Corrected a short circuit, replaced several breakers, converted a pump circuit to 220v, installed exterior waterproof box for landscape lighting step-down transformer. Called before they came, came on time, gave a quick and accurate estimate. Technician was courteous, fast and professional. If you're getting electrical work done, ask for Sam. "

- Christopher C ., Virginia Beach, VA

I used the service of American Mechanical Inc about a month ago to replace an attic fan on our second story house. We called them and they replied quickly. They showed up the next day to see what kind of equipment they would need and what would fit into the space that was already provided. They showed up the following morning and installed it with no problems and in good time. Everything works fine. Their price was very fair and in fact less than the company we used for our air conditioner. It was a very good price. "

- Brooks G ., Virginia Beach, VA

I woke up this morning with my bedroom ceiling collapsing just feet from my bed. I called American Mechanical. The woman on the phone was very sympathetic, professional, and efficient in sending me Doug. Doug arrived, was very professional, my bill was exactly what he said it was going to be, and he finished in less than 2 hours. Job well done. I will recommend this company and use them in the future. "

- Elaine L ., Chesapeake, VA

They were recommended through our homeowner's insurance. They reset a switch for us. It was great. They were on time and showed us what the problem was. The guy was professional. "

- Justin M

Everything they did works. The price was fair. The workers were friendly. I am satisfied with their service and I would highly recommend them. "

- James S ., Virginia Beach, VA

Jeremy Holt arrived on time (and called 30 min. before to say he was en route). Jeremy's communication was very clear. He was also pleasant and cheerful. He was quite efficient, wasting no time. He gave me an estimate on removing an antiquated kitchen light. I will definitely call him in the future for any electrical work I need done. "

- Diane T ., Virginia Beach, VA

Company specializes in home generators and was much more knowledgeable about these smaller units. Other companies we have used tend to focus on commercial generators for hospitals and commercial buildings. Cost for maintenance was less than half of the estimates by two other providers. Problem was fixed in about 20 minutes. "

- Bruce B

We contacted American Mechanical to provide an estimate to install a propane-powered standby generator for our Sandbridge home. They responded quickly and gave an excellent presentation, answering all of our questions and gave us an excellent estimate with attractive financing and an extended warranty, which we accepted. The work went smoothly and was expertly done. The workers were highly trained, neat and efficient, showing respect for our home, and cleaning up all debris each day. American Mechanical showed great flexibility and worked around the schedule of the propane installation, which we had contracted separately. We are extremely satisfied with the entire process and would recommend them to anyone seeking similar work. "

- Richard W ., Virginia Beach, VA

American Mechanical installed our generator and they maintain it. The people from American Mechanical were very professional and very accommodating. "
