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.
