Circuit Panel Changes & Upgrades

Circuit Panel Changes & Upgrades

Virginia Beach Master Licensed Electricians

Do your lights flicker when a major appliance turns on? Are you building a new addition in your Virginia Beach area home? If so, you may need a circuit panel change or upgrade. Your circuit panel is designed to prevent electrical fires and other electrical issues in your home.

Electricity flows from an outside source (a utility company), through a service entrance, and then is passed through various phases of your home’s electrical system before moving through an individual circuit breaker on your panel. However, if your home’s circuit panel is too old or has been damaged in any way, you may need a circuit panel upgrade to protect against costly repairs in the future.

Whatever the case may be, be sure to contact American Mechanical for circuit panel changes, upgrades, and heavy ups in the Virginia Beach area. Our Master licensed technicians will work with you every step of the way during your in-home project. We’ll perform a comprehensive analysis of your current electrical panel to determine the proper size and power needed to protect your home.

Signs You Need to Upgrade Your Circuit Panel

There are many reasons why you may need to upgrade the electrical panel in your Virginia Beach home. If you are building an addition on your home it’s vital for a professional electrician to inspect your circuit panel. We can help you determine if your current electrical system can safely monitor the increase in power and that your wiring meets local and state code.

You should also consider upgrading your circuit panel if:

  • Your circuit panel is more than 20 years old.
  • Your lights flicker when a major appliance turns on.
  • Your circuit panel is hot to the touch.
  • Your circuit panel is a split-buss panel.

Rave Reviews From Happy Customers

  • “My husband and I have been so very impressed with American Mechanical and their staff! We are having electrical upgrades and a GENERAC back up generator installed for our home. Jason was our first contact. He met with us, answered our many questions, inspected the house and gave us suggestions. Jason made us feel very comfortable with our decision to have this work accomplished. The technicians at our house were Jon, Rodney and Tim. They were such hard workers! All were very friendly, patient with all my questions and made us feel relaxed and comfortable having them at our residence. In addition, Kirsti has been our contact regarding scheduling. She has been most helpful with keeping us informed about when and what would be happening. Highly recommend this company! Excellent employees!” - Sandra P.
  • “What an INCREDIBLE company to work with! Kirsti in the office helped us get the right people out here for the situation we had going on. Shaw inspected our old system, told us it was done. Scoped the duct lines prior to putting together a plan for a new system, once the duct work checked out passable the new system came together beautifully! Bobby and Dillon showed up and got to work a day earlier than expected (which is wonderful with temps expected to reach 90 degrees and we had no air conditioning). By the end of day one we had air conditioning downstairs, On day two of the installation we had air conditioning upstairs. They fully explained EVERYTHING. No question was left hanging. They fixed things I didn’t realize were a problem. Definitely a company I would recommend to everyone I know. Thank you American Mechanical from start to finish, GREAT JOB!” - Stacy D.
  • “HVAC Solutions Specialist – Mr. Mike Hayes – TOP SHELF Mike came to our house as a “second opinion” regarding replacing our two HVAC units. He was very personal, professional, and knowledgeable and we felt very comfortable and hopeful after talking with him. He took the time to educate us on our systems and even noted that one of our systems was still under warranty. Since we are on a fixed income, it was a true testament of Mike’s character and work ethic to have someone educate us instead of sell. Did you know the date your HVAC was installed is actually the date the warranty starts and not the date on the equipment? I am confident that once we are free from our current maintenance agreement with the other company, we will call on Mike and American Mechanical for any future needs as their mission statement holds true with our experience: PEOPLE – TRUST – VALUE. Thank you…” - Sherry B.
  • “James, Rich took care of me today and we signed a contract for two more bathrooms and included a vent for the third. I continue to be a raving American Mechanical fan. Very pleased all around with your company. Please let your leadership know how well you all do. For me to experience such consistency in service level all around reflects very well on the leadership and management of your company. I’ve worked in the client service industry over 25 years and I know it starts at the top when delivering client service. I’ve dealt with so many American Mechanical employees and get that genuine high level of service every time. But I wouldn’t be starting my third project if your initial sales person , who I believe is Rodger, had not been so persistent in following up on my Home Advisor inquiry for my first job. I had already had three quotes but he called me back four or five times in two days- and that is why I ended up with American Mechanical and got what I thought was the best deal. Of course, Neil was exceptional in closing me on the first deal. After that, why would we bother to get anyone else for the additional work we need? If anyone ever asks for a reference, please use me. I look forward to the next projects! I think rewarding your employees for 5 star reviews is a brilliant idea. Happy employees make for happy clients!” - Millie W
  • “I am just trying to figure out how to brag on all of the guys – Mike, Bobby, Dillon, Tony, Taylor and David (hope I did not miss anyone) that just installed our new HVAC unit on Thursday. What a professional company you are…from the detailed comparison pricing after Mike reviewed our issues to the fact that every single one of your guys introduced themselves, shook our hands and explained what they would be doing. Drop cloths, booties and immaculate clean up; before and after pictures and just the total experience! Your company gave us an experience that impressed us. We hope to do additional business with you in the future. Thank you again.” - Karen G.
  • “Sean and everyone I’ve dealt with at American Mechanical have been a real pleasure to do work with. Top notch customer service and they don’t treat you like just a number. Good pricing and they give you lots of options and walk you through every detail. Can’t say enough good things!” - Caleb S.
  • “I could not have had a better experience. The front office was super friendly when scheduling and kept me up to date on the status throughout the day. Most places give you a five hour window and you are left waiting. Not this company! They give constant updates. They also sent me a picture of my technician so I would know who would be here. My technician was amazing. He knew exactly what the problem was immediately but also went above and beyond by showing me what he was doing and explained why I had the issue and how I can fix things if it happens again in the future. He was very knowledgeable and very easy to talk to. The whole company really goes above and beyond for customer service! They are also very fair priced. Would highly recommend them!” - Jenna R.
  • “Jason was so kind and smart on my electrical issue! In my personal opinion, dogs and babies may be the best judge of character in a person, and my dog who is normally pretty hyped, was really calm when Jason was there working on my electrical issue. When my baby woke up from his nap, he was all smiles to see this stranger! He was in and out in an extremely reasonable amount of time, and explained what was happening in more detail than was necessary because I was curious. I will definitely be using this company again, and will be requesting Jason!” - Krystal
  • “The positive reviews convinced me that this was the company that I wanted to service my home! I was not disappointed. I’m appreciative of Ed and Robin for their expertise and professionalism in explaining, troubleshooting and addressing several of my plumbing issues on two different occasions! Your patience, honesty and integrity were all on display, which is very hard to find these days when I start to panic, and freak out during leaks and other crisis situations! The office staff was also very courteous and prompt in getting me on the schedule as quickly as possible for my plumbing problems! I’m now checking into your other services that you provide and will be calling again as the need arises!” - M. Carter
