Common Water Heater Problems

Our expert technicians can fix a wide range of water heater problems. Some customers call us because they’re not getting any hot water at all and others because the water temperature is too hot, not hot enough, or inconsistent. Perhaps you have low hot water pressure or it’s taking a long time for hot water to reach your faucets. Our team can help. We fix all manner of leaks, including slow drips and pooling water. Our technicians diagnose and correct pilot and burner problems in fuel-burning systems and starters and heating elements in electric water heaters. We can flush your water heater, replace corroded parts, calibrate thermostats, and diagnose and fix unusual sounds and strange smells.

Water Too Hot or Cold

Thermostats that are faulty or not calibrated correctly are the most common reasons that your water is too hot or too cold. Other reasons include sediment buildup, a failing heating element, and a stuck pressure release valve.

Water Odors

Hot water that smells like rotten eggs is a common issue that is caused by a buildup of sulfate bacteria in the tank. Our technicians can determine the problem and flush the tank, replace the anode rod or advise well water treatment.

Unusual Sounds

Modern water heaters should be quiet. Rumbling or banging often indicates sediment buildup. Screeching or whistling may suggest a bad or loose valve, and a persistent hissing or crackling often means that there is an electrical problem.

Leaking Tank or Pipes

Any leak is a serious problem no matter how minor it may seem. It may mean that you have a loose line or faulty inlet, outlet, or valve, and what may seem like a small issue now can quickly develop into something much more serious.

Tank and Tankless Water Heater Repair

Sanks Mechanical provides water heater repair services for both traditional tank water heaters and on-demand systems. Both types of systems can be powered by electricity or burn a fuel, such as natural gas, heating oil, and propane. Tank water heaters are still used in most homes and have been for many decades. They’re relatively simple and affordable to install and maintain. As the technology has improved, many homeowners in our region have switched to tankless systems. On-demand systems do cost more to install but cost less to run on a month-to-month basis, last longer, and provide a practically endless supply of hot water. Whichever style you choose, your system will require maintenance and may need a repair from time to time, and Sanks Mechanical is here to provide those services.

Extend Water Heater Life with Maintenance

Many homeowners ignore their water heaters until there is a problem, and the team at Sanks Mechanical recommends against this as a break-fix approach to your water heater will cost you more in the end. We suggest some simple water heater maintenance efforts to ensure safe and proper operation. If you are having issues we can perform a multi-point inspection and recommend a course of action to get your hot water flowing again. Our goal is to have your water heater run at peak efficiency in the year to come and costs you less on a month-to-month basis. It will also help to extend the life of the equipment and avoid the need for unplanned water heater repair, and that will lower your total cost of ownership.
