5 Most Common Issues with a Hot Water Heater in Edmonton

Problems with your hot water heater? Edmonton, Spruce Grove and surrounding areas call Academy Mechanical Services Inc. for the following complications.

1. Rusty water

Deep inside your water heater is a magnesium or aluminum rod that slowly dissolves to prevent rust from forming. If your water looks rust coloured, it’s just the anode rod failing. Call us for a quick and simple replacement.

2. Rotten-egg smelling water

If your water smells like rotten eggs, you have a bacteria problem. The anode rod inside your tank, meant to prevent rust, also gives off hydrogen gas. Certain kinds of bacteria feed on hydrogen gas. We will come drain your water heater, kill the bacteria, and get your water supply back to normal.

3. Loud, annoying noises

Popping or whining noises occur when your water heater has sediment build-up. The mineral build-up on the bottom of a tank may cause the water to boil or the sediment to burn, which causes ghastly noises. We will drain your water heater and clean up the sediment.

4. Too hot or too cold

This is caused by one of two things: the heating element/pilot light or the thermostat. Check your thermostat first. If that doesn’t fix the problem, give us a call. The lack of consistent hot water from your unit probably means that one or more elements need to be replaced.

5. Leaks

Is it time to repair or replace? The temperature and pressure valve may release too much water due to overheating, which you can fix yourself by adjusting the thermostat. On the other hand, a leak could indicate a hole in the tank. We can identify the cause of your leak then repair or replace it. No matter the hour, call Academy Mechanical to take care of your water heater emergencies or to schedule routine maintenance.
