Your hot water heater plays an integral role in the well-being and comfort of you and your family. For the most part, it silently does its job day-in and day-out. However, no water heater is immune to troubles. When something is wrong, being able to read the signs will save you money. In our last blog, we discussed what smelly water means. Today, we’re going to discuss noises and how seriously you need to take them.

Strange Noises

  • Many people dismiss knocking and gurgling sounds in their plumbing. They shouldn’t. Plumbing isn’t supposed to make sounds like that, and if it does, it means it’s being stressed and will leak soon.
  • If you hear banging from inside your water heater, it means big mineral deposits inside are breaking off the walls and falling to the bottom of the tank. It means that your water is too hard and your water heater isn’t efficient. A a result, you are losing a lot of money. We can help with that.
  • The worst sound you can hear from your hot water heater is gurgling or bubbling. That means the water inside the heater is boiling and in danger of exploding. Shut the heater down, get out of the room, and contact us immediately.
