Circuit Breakers

Circuit Breaker Services in Virginia Beach

Master Electricians - Residential & Commercial

Without a properly working circuit breaker, you risk the danger of an electrical fire in your home or business whenever a short or electrical overload occurs. Most electrical repairs and replacement jobs are not DIY projects—let the master electricians at American Mechanical take care of all your circuit breaker needs in Virginia Beach.

Circuit Breaker Repair

We have extensive experience helping our Virginia Beach customers with:

  • Overloaded circuits — this problem is most easily solved with a panel upgrade. We can help!
  • Short circuiting — this happens when hot wires touch neutral wires. Short circuiting can be a serious issue as it is usually caused by a wiring problem, either in your home or in an appliance.
  • Ground faults — these occur when hot wire is touching the bare copper wire called the ground wire, or any other type of metal, such as the metal box your circuit breaker is kept in.

Circuit Panel Upgrades

Keep tripping your circuit breaker? This is most often a result of overloaded circuits, which means it’s time for a panel upgrade. Older homes in particular cannot handle modern electrical demands. By upgrading your circuit panels, our electricians can help you increase the electrical load your home can handle. There are other reasons you might also consider upgrading your circuit panel. For instance, if you are building an addition on your house, you will need to increase your amperage capability.

Dedicated Circuitry

For commercial spaces with computer rooms or commercial kitchens, dedicated circuitry can prevent tripped breakers and disruptions to your business. For residential purposes, our electricians can give your major appliances a dedicated circuit to ensure that those appliances have access to the energy they need. For example, you might want to consider a dedicated circuit for your HVAC equipment.

Rave Reviews From Happy Customers

  • “Had our Spring HVAC inspection/tune up performed by Trey today. He arrived on time and was very thorough. He spent a lot of time making sure everything was inspected on both of our units to be sure we are ready for a hot summer. He even cleaned out a hornets nest! Yikes! When asking about recommended services, Trey was up front and honest. We did go ahead with one of his recommended items. We are waiting to do the other. I appreciate that the company is willing to replace a customer-supplied part in order to save us some money.” - Nicole C.
  • “Had American Mechanical come to my home for spring HVAC maintenance. Dave Johnson was the HVAC tech who performed the service and was very thorough and knowledgeable in performing the maintenance and offering recommendations. Kim was the dispatcher who set the appointment up for me and was very professional and set up the appointment at my convenience time and with a knowledgeable HVAC tech. We are retired military and would highly recommend American Mechanical to anyone needing quality and professional service.” - Diane Beyer
  • “We had Randy Berry and Kevin Garner and they did a great job. Being a woman it’s important that I don’t feel uncomfortable around them and I didn’t! They got the air duct cleaning done in 3 ½ hours. They are also doggie approved and I don’t trust anyone that my dog doesn’t like!” - Kathy
  • “The team arrived on time, they were very courteous throughout the whole day. Tarps laid down to keep the house clean and they also wore booties on the shoes. Old unit removed and the new one installed is working like a rocket ship. Couldn’t be happier and I highly recommend them. Prices are right on par for a decent Trane system with anyone else out there but the professionalism and workmanship couldn’t be topped. Offered to bring me A/C units and heaters over to the house if I needed them since my old unit was out of commission until install day and brought me a years worth of filters.” - Joseph Y.
  • “Our furnace decided to give out during the Nor’easter this past weekend. My husband called American Mechanical and we were able to have someone come out and assess on Saturday. Although we were tols it could be up to a week for the part to come in on Monday we received a call they had found the part. Dave J. came on Monday afternoon and found we needed an additional part. He went back to the warehouse to get the additional part so that we wouldn’t have to go another night without heat. He was very professional and made every effort to make sure we were comfortable. We had been using another small HVAC company and were not pleased. American Mechanical is our new HVAC company. Thank you for restoring our heat.” - Gwen
  • “This company is great! I have used them a few times and they impress me each time with their excellent customer service, and honest diagnostics that are explained thoroughly prior to any service repairs with a price quote. I highly recommend – Dave J. for any HVAC services needed. He recently repaired my HVAC system to a quality above my high expectations, and did so while explaining the process and giving me advice to keep the system from having future issues. Five stars to Dave J. and American Mechanical, Incorporated for an excellent job. Highly recommended!” - Joel
  • “You’ve been patient and understanding of our needs and concerns as we progressed from talking about a combi-tankless unit through its installation. While you are probably more accustomed to fielding problems, allow me to offer some compliments. Our experience with American Mechanical has been most unusual. Never before have we worked with a company that seemingly couldn’t do enough to satisfy our requests. Every concern was met with a serious and immediate attempt at solution. Communications were easy and two-way. The gentlemen who made the initial installation (Tony and Bobby) as well as the men who did the later work (Trey and Dave) treated our home like a home, not just another workplace. We enjoyed having them here, and kind of missed them when the work was finished. They did their work artfully – even making a special effort to get the recirculating pump control in an easy to use location. Finally, they did a nice job of cleaning up after each hard day of work. There is a company that advertises that it is “our company for life”. Well, that’s how we feel about American Mechanical after this experience. You played a critical role in creating that commitment. We’ve already called upon your company for a plumbing repair; and we’ll be calling you soon to talk about a whole house generator. We look forward to many years of work together in the future.” - John Stewart
  • “Each time I use American Mechanical the experience gets even better. The text message with the techs picture and background ensures I know who I’m expecting. The tech tracking link shows me where my technician is and exactly when to expect his arrival. The personal attention, explanations, and quality of service of the tech is always outstanding. Kudos for not being satisfied with just doing the same old thing and be willing to continue to improve the customer experience.” - Bruce & Cathy
  • “I want to express my appreciation and satisfaction with the follow-up work David and Randy completed today on my duct system. They were able to quickly and satisfactorily make the necessary repair and add to that, their professional and positive attitude and that makes for an upbeat and pleasant experience. Once again, it was a pleasure doing business with American Mechanical.” - Mike Barrett
