Backup Generator Installation in Chesapeake, VA

Chesapeake Generator Maintenance to Keep Your Lights On

As our aging power grid becomes more unstable and our power demands continually increase, rolling blackouts and longer power outages are only going to become more and more commonplace. That’s not a good thing when our homes are only becoming more and more dependent on a consistent supply of electricity. From lighting to see to data centers that control our devices to smart home technology, everything depends on having a consistent and stable supply of power that we’ve become more and more dependent on. Even a short outage could create serious complications that take considerable time to resolve. So why stress or live in fear of a power outage when you could do something to protect your home and keep your lights on when one happens.

At American Mechanical, Inc., we offer a wide selection of Chesapeake emergency standby generators that can get you the power you need to keep your lights on and devices running in a power outage. Powered by natural gas, these generators are small, quiet, energy-efficient, and completely automatic. As long as your gas utility connection remains active, your generator can continue to power you with enough electricity to get by for days at a time. This small investment can help you keep your ability to see, preserve your food in your refrigerator or freezer, and even keep your internet connection active for continual data transfer. When you work from home or depend on equipment at home, this type of security or backup power could make all the difference when it comes to getting the work you need done.

Do I Need a Backup Generator?

Backup generators are quickly becoming one of the most popular upgrades or additions to many homes. Standby generators are extremely low-maintenance, discreet, quiet, and reliable, making them a true joy to run. Plus, unlike many other generator systems that are loud, emit toxic fumes, and require you to continually fuel them with gasoline, these systems constantly sit at the ready for the moment you need them. No more fumbling with engines that won’t start or potentially dangerous electrical connections in order to get the power into your home.

Backup generators can keep any of the following up and running:

  • Electric lights
  • Cell phone chargers
  • Refrigerators and freezers
  • Routers and modems
  • Datacenters
  • Cooking appliances

When the power goes out, a backup generator can keep most of your home up and running as if nothing was wrong. You may not have access to your heating and cooling system and likewise some of your larger appliances may not work. However, they can generally provide you with enough power to continue your life as normal for quite a while in the event of an extended outage. We strongly recommend working with one of our highly-trained experts to choose the backup generator size that’s right for you and your goals—picking too small of a generator could hinder you in an outage, and that’s the last thing you want.

Rave Reviews From Happy Customers

  • “I am in the market for a whole house stand-by generator and called American Mechanical for an estimate. They sent an electrician, Rodney W., who was extremely knowledgeable, courteous and likeable. He answered all my questions and gave me a complete proposal for a turnkey installation while he was at my house. The next day I had some more questions about the proposal. He answered them promptly and courteously. Nothing could have been better about this experience! If the installers exhibit the same qualities of customer service that Rodney does many American Mechanical customers will be very pleased.” - Tom C.
  • “We called about a gas leak and American Mechanical sent someone out promptly. Ed called when he was on the way and arrived on time. Off to a good start. He introduced himself and gave me his card. While I was taking him to the attic, he said he read the notes. He read the notes people! If you want your customers to feel like they matter, send a service person that recognizes you as a customer and knows your history. Kudos to Ed! He also fixed our problem, explained the problem, and gave us options to avoid the problem in the future.” - Sharon D.
  • “Wow! Ed S. at American Mechanical is one of the best professionals I have ever encountered. Ed is very patient, kind, and answers all questions – even from a worry wart like myself who may ask them multiple times. I had a new tankless hot water heater installed and was stressed when a few steps were needed to complete the project. Ed was always available to answer questions and he clearly has a ton of knowledge about plumbing and natural gas services. Thank you Ed at American Mechanical for providing quality service and doing the job right. Special shout out to Angela in the dispatch office for being so kind and understanding when I called – especially during these trying times kindness goes a long, long way.” - Heather F.
  • “Ed at American Mechanical fixed a plumbing issue that had been plaguing us for over a year! He was the best repair guy we have ever had! He was on time, professional and thorough. He shared his knowledge with our family about exactly what the issue was and stayed to make sure that everything was fixed. Ed was everything and more than anyone could want from a repair service. And, the women in the office of American Mechanical were so receptive and helpful! They were kind and seemed genuinely happy to answer the telephone, listen to me and they wanted to help me. American Mechanical is my best find this year! And, as an Operations Manager in my work life, I will be calling them for their expertise no only at home- but at work as well.” - Tania K
  • “My wife and I decided to go with American Mechanical to install our new GENERAC stand by generator unit. A team came to the house to install the preliminary work such as gas line preparation and installation of a transfer switch (to include wiring into the main panel). Trey, John, Chris and Noah were just amazing! They worked well together, orchestrated perfectly. As a handy man myself I can appreciate the extra care taken with everything they did. They were meticulous – and they actually use a leveler to make sure their panel and platform were level. You may laugh, but small attention to detail is what separates the professionals and the amateurs. We were very pleased with their work and they represent American Mechanical well. Staff like these men are the ones who are a valuable asset to their company!” - Raoul W.
  • “Rodney W. from American Mechanical repaired an electrical issue I recently had at my home. He displayed stellar customer service skills and the professionalism and knowledge of a seasoned electrician. Rodney patiently listened as I described the issue to him. He knew right away where the problem was and had the issue resolved within a short period of time! Rodney was very kind to Max, our dog who has absolutely no concept of his size but yet wants to “help”. Rodney and the American Mechanical staff made the entire experience pleasantly an easy one. He is definitely an asset to American Mechanical and truly appreciated by me. Many thanks to all!” - Kathryn B
  • “This is the third time Rich P. has come to my house for plumbing issues. Each time he has been very knowledgeable as well as pleasant. Rich also allowed me to watch him while he did the work and taught me as he performed the repairs. I have learned a lot about plumbing as a new homeowner all thanks to Rich. Thank you so much!” - K. Terry
  • “Our experience with American Mechanical was superb! Each member of the team is professional. This is the third generator I have purchased. American Mechanical sales, finance, installation and the technology-based management is the best experience I have ever had. I have recommended this company to the other 80 residents of our over 55 community in Chesapeake, VA. Outstanding!” - Edward N.
  • “The technician was completely thorough and professional. He explained the process and was very knowledgeable about the services he provided. I was shown pictures and given detailed pictures and information after the service was completed. I am extremely happy with the level of service I received today and previously. I will continue to use this company and I highly recommend this company to others! A side note for women…this company does what it says it will do and I never felt like I was being taken advantage of.” - Pamela J.
