Water Heater Installation & Repair

Water Heater Installation & Repair

Expert Services for Over 40 Years

Your water heater needs regular maintenance to function at its best. But we understand that the unexpected can occur. That’s why we provide top-notch water heater repair and replacement services for residential and commercial customers across Virginia Beach and surrounding areas.

Water Heater Repairs

If there’s water leaking from the unit’s tank, this is a sure sign that something is wrong. Whether you have a gas or electric heater, there should never be water leaking. If the leak is coming from the bottom of the unit, this means that the internal tank has a crack in it. There is no alternative repair for a cracked tank; you will need to replace the entire water heater. However, if the leak is taking place towards the top of the water heater, we can solve the problem with a repair.

No Hot Water

Have you noticed a sudden stop to your hot water supply? First, identify what type of heater you are using: is it gas or electric? If you have a gas water heater that is not producing any hot water, this means your pilot light is out. With an electric water heater, lack of hot water could point to a damaged breaker. Fortunately, our technicians are able to repair these problems with ease.

Not Enough Hot Water

If your water heater is producing hot water, but not enough of it, there is sediment building up inside the tank. When sediment builds up over time, this often indicates that your water heater is nearing the end of its lifecycle. In some cases, the sediment can be flushed out, or a simple part just needs to be replaced to increase the amount of hot water that your heater is producing. In the worst-case scenario, you will have to replace your entire water heater.

Water Heater Replacement

It can be difficult to decide whether or not to replace or simply repair your water heater. We at American Mechanical will never push you to make a purchase that is unnecessary.

You should try to have your water heater repaired if:

  • Your warranty is still valid
  • The cost of the repair is reasonable
  • You like the model of your water heater

You should replace your water heater if…

  • Your current model is not energy efficient
  • The replacement parts are hard to find
  • The repair costs will exceed what it would cost to buy a new water heater

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
