Common Sounds Hot Water Heaters Make

Description:

Hot water heaters will make all sorts of sounds. Some of these are normal and are just part of the heater working to make hot water. Other noises, on the other hand, can indicate a problem developing inside the heater and serve as an early warning sign that the heater needs maintenance and/or repairs by an experienced plumber. – PowerPoint PPT presentation

A humming or buzzing sound is a normal sound
found in electric hot water heaters. This
indicates the heating element is on and heating
up the water.

If the noise starts to become louder, it means
the element is loose and needs to be tightened.

This is another normal sound your hot water
heater could make. It indicates the check valves
inside the heater is preventing water from
flowing backwards.

You can talk to your plumber about alternative
options if the sounds are annoying to you.

This sound will occur when water is being forced
through a smaller opening from the pressure
behind it.
Screeching, Screaming, or Singing Sounds

9
While not a major concern, if could indicate a
valve somewhere on the heater is not opened
fully. If the noise is bothersome, ask your
plumber to check the valves to ensure they are
open and set correctly.

These sounds occur when water is abruptly
stopped, like when washing machine or dishwasher
water intake stops.

You may notice the sound coming from inside the
walls or near the area of the hot water heater.
While this sound rarely poses a problem for your
hot water heater,

it could indicate unsecure pipes inside the wall,
and if not corrected could damage the walls, as
well as lead to leaks in between pipe
connectors.

13
All of these sounds indicate there is some type
of sediment built up inside the hot water heater.

14
Maintenance is required as various components and
parts may need replaced, as well as the tank
could require draining and flushing. On older
tanks (ten years or more), it may be time to
replace the tank with a new one.

15
Tankless heaters work different from traditional
water heaters. The clicking sound is part of
normal operations as the water is moving through
the heater and being heated on-demand for the
home.

16
However, if the noise seems a bit excessive or
louder than normal, it could indicate there are
calcium and mineral deposits building up inside
the system from hard water.

17
Depending upon where you live, the amount of
minerals and calcium in your water could be the
cause of deposits and sediment build-up inside
traditional and tankless water heaters.

18
To help avoid these issues and extend the life of
your hot water heater, it is a good idea to talk
to your plumber about having a home water
softener system installed.
