Why Is My Water Heater Making Noise?

Is your water heater making noticeable noises throughout standard operation? There are many different reasons your water heater may be making noises. For example, a common issue with hot water heaters in Arizona is a mineral buildup in the water tank. If there are too many minerals at the bottom of the water heater, you may notice a popping sound. Over time, lime and calcium from your town’s water system will affect the operation of your hot water heater.

This sediment buildup at the bottom of the tank traps hot water and boosts the pressure in your water heater. The large increase in pressure caused by lime and calcium will damage your unit if you don’t regularly drain the minerals out of your water heater. If your system is making a sizzling noise in your home, this is a sign that you may have a water leak. The noise is generated when excess water starts dripping on the burner of your hot water heater. To receive assistance with a water heater repair, book an appointment with the professional plumbers at Compton Plumbing Services.

Who Do You Call For a Gas Leak in Your Home?

Natural gas is one of the largest energy sources in the United States. Gas is utilized in homes to power appliances such as fireplaces, furnaces, ovens, and stoves. Although natural gas is usually a reliable and safe energy source, a slow gas leak in your home can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning. In its natural state, gas is odorless and colorless. All gas suppliers add sulfur to natural gas to give it a distinct rotten egg odor. An odor is added to the natural gas to ensure home gas leaks are easy to identify for homeowners.

If you notice an odd smell near your gas oven, stove, or fireplace, learn more about our gas line repair and installation services. Excess exposure to natural gas can lead to a house fire or carbon monoxide poisoning. Signs that may indicate a gas leak in your home include high gas bills, headaches, chest pain, dead flowers or plants, nausea, and nose bleeds. Schedule an emergency plumber for gas line repair, installation, or replacement to receive immediate assistance.
