Do Water Heaters Make Noise?
While water heaters do make some level of noise when operating, loud or unusual sounds that you don’t normally hear typically point to a problem. If you hear rumbling or popping, there may be an accumulation of minerals and sediment in the tank. While knocking could indicate an issue with the pipes, and a screeching sound may mean that there is an issue with a valve that is impacting the flow of the water. However, noisy operation is not the only indication that your water heater is malfunctioning.
Common Water Heater Problems:
- Faulty temperature & pressure relief valve or loose inlet & outlet connections, which could result in water leaking from the top of the water heater
- Bacteria within the tank, which can lead to foul smelling water
- Thermostat settings are incorrect or malfunctioning, causing temperature irregularities, with the water either being too hot or too cold
- Eroded anode rod, which can result in discolored water. This problem can also be caused by tank corrosion, in which case a replacement system will be needed
- Damaged heating components, such as the thermocouple, pilot light, and burners, which can affect how quickly and adequately your water is heated
If your water heater is displaying any of the above problems, it is best to contact a professional plumber right away. Delaying a repair could lead to damage in other components of your water heater, resulting in a lack of efficiency, performance, and in some cases an early replacement.

We offer water heater repair in Bethlehem and surrounding areas with prompt, same day service. Our plumbers are knowledgeable and equipped to provide repairs for all types and brands of conventional and tankless water heaters.

When to Replace a Water Heater
Our customers frequently ask us about the ideal time to replace their water heaters. Upgrading before your system fails will allow you to avoid a sudden loss of hot water. In addition, today’s energy efficient water heaters offer better performance, increased energy efficiency, and lower operating costs. If your water heater has reached the end of its life or you notice other signs that it is time for replacement, give our Bethlehem water heater installation team a call.
Signs You Need a New Water Heater:
- It is more than 10 years old
- It isn’t keeping the water hot enough
- It produces an insufficient amount of hot water
- It isn’t heating the water at all
- It leaks from the tank
- It creates rust colored hot water
If you are unsure, we can inspect your water heater to see how it is working and determine if repair or replacement is the best option for your home. We can also provide maintenance service to help keep your water heater operating reliably and efficiently.
Conventional & Tankless Water Heater Options Available
When you are ready to upgrade your water heater, there are two basic options: conventional water heaters with a storage tank to hold heated water and tankless water heaters. Tankless water heaters create hot water on demand, so no storage tank is needed. This provides a constant supply of hot water, so you won’t have to worry about running out in the middle of a shower.
Benefits of a Tankless Water Heater:
- A constant supply of hot water
- Fewer repair issues
- No storage tank
- Smaller size requires less space
- Better energy efficiency
- Lower operating costs
- More environmentally friendly
At Power Rooter Plumbing & Drain, we can explain the advantages and disadvantages of each type of water heater and help you compare size, energy efficiency, prices, and other factors to select a water heater with the right capacity at a price that will fit your budget. We offer professional installation for conventional and tankless water heaters in Bethlehem.
