While water heater sounds are common, some noises can be concerning. It can also be difficult to pinpoint the issue causing the noise. Fortunately, the pros at Linn Benton Plumbing are here to help you decode the meaning behind those noises. If you notice anything unusual with your unit, reach out to us immediately for a prompt water heater repair in Albany, OR.
A banging sound is common with a hot water heater. Usually, this type of noise means that your unit has sediment buildup inside. The minerals combined with the heating component lead to a banging or rumbling sound. You can correct this issue by draining your water heater’s tank at least once or twice each year.
Another issue that banging signifies is that you have a water hammer. This implies there’s excess water pressure in the pipes after it backflows from the unit. A technician can provide water heater services to correct this problem.
If your water heater is making a sizzling sound, it means you have a broken hot water heater. This often occurs when there is a leak, which isn’t something you can fix by yourself. You will need a professional to come to your home to take a look and make repairs if necessary. If your unit is beyond repair, you’ll have no choice but to replace it.
A ticking sound coming from your unit isn’t normally a cause for concern. You might notice it after a new water heater installation when there’s a change in your water pressure. You can add insulation around your water heater to ease the pressure. However, in some cases, you might need a professional’s help to level off the pressure.
Screeching noise from your water heater means there are loose valves releasing air from the tank. Checking and adjusting the temperature valves is often enough to fix this issue. Consult with your owner’s manual for instructions on doing that.

When I called and told them my water heater was leaking they sent over a technician right away. Miles, the technician was professional, respectful and knowledgeable. He completed the job quickly and efficiently. I would highly recommend this company.
Linn Benton Plumbing Was definitely a good experience. I had an underground leak beneath our back deck. Not an easy repair. Miles was the plumber, he was able to pull the deck apart and dig down to repair the leak. He finished the project that day. What a relief. I would recommend Linn Benton Plumbing and especially Miles to anyone.
John and his crew are very professional. I spoke with John, I told him my problem, and he came over in the last minute before we were leaving on vacation. We so appreciated his quick response and he had our problem fixed quickly. Awesome folks to work with.
We live in Albany OR. Our garbage disposal stopped working, Jon came out determined the cause (short in the motor) and installed a new disposal. He arrived when he said he would, fixed the problem quickly, and was meticulous in his work. My wife was thrilled at how clean he left the work area.
